On Wednesday, the US defeated New Zealand 2-0 in their opening match of the Rio Olympics. New Zealand only managed four shots, 1 on goal, which US Goalkeeper Hope Solo stopped.

 

During the game, anytime Hope Solo touched the ball, she was hit with a chorus of boos by the Brazilian crowd, and they chanted ‘ZIKA’ when she kicked the ball.

Back in February, Solo stated she would skip the Olympics because of her concerns of the Zika Virus and then made it worse by posting these picture in late July on Twitter:

 

This is the worst thing to happen to Hope Solo since her trash nudes were leaked.
