Snoop Dogg Demands Equal Pay For US Women's Football Team
Snoop Dogg is a man after our own hearts as the rapper is out here demanding for female professional footballers to be paid the same as their male counterparts.
Following the women's World Cup, which saw the USA take home the trophy against the Netherlands yesterday, Snoop called for the players to be paid what they deserve in the most Snoop way possible.
Posting a video on his official Instagram page on Sunday evening, the rapper demanded: "Food for thought, shout out to the USA women's soccer team for their fourth World Cup, but what I want to talk about is they only get $90,000 per player, but the men, if they win it they get $500,000 per player.
"Sorry-ass f*cking men from the US soccer team ain't ever won sh*t, ain't gonna ever win sh*t, can't even get out of the f*cking first round.
"Pay them ladies man, pay them girls what they're worth. The women should be getting $500,000 per athlete, Snoop Dogg says so. Them girls won four World Cups, and $90,000? Man, please."
"Pay them $500K per player - Snoop Dogg says so," he reiterated, before concluding: "USA soccer... let's go girls."
The video, which was captioned: "Soccer team. Ladies need. They issue. Break bread or fake dead," saw scores of Snoop's followers come forward to voice their support for equal pay, too.
"Real Talk! I'm with you 100% on this! They deserve it!" said one, while another shared: "Yasssss snoop! I was just saying that, it is so sad!"
Equal pay has been a hot topic at this year's world cup, and fans could be heard chanting for it around the stadium as the USA won 2:0.
Snoop's comments come as Golden Boot winner Megan Rapinoe called for the conversations on equal pay to move forward to the next stage.
"I think everyone is ready for this conversation to move to the next step," she said. "I think we're done with, 'Are we worth it, should we have equal pay, is the market the same?' Yada yada.
"Everyone's done with that; fans are done with that, players are done with that. In a lot of ways I think sponsors are done with that.
"Let's get to the next point. What's next? How do we support women's federations and women's programmes around the world? What can Fifa do to do that? What can we do to support the leagues around the world?"
We couldn't agree with Snoop or Megan more.
