Streaming 12 PM EST

Megan Rapinoe issued a statement in response to the Olympic Committee’s new ruling that bars athletes from making any political gestures at the 2020 Olympics in Tokyo. The soccer star was responding to Rule 50, which prohibits kneeling, raising a fist, or any other protest while the athletes are on the world’s stage. Rapinoe responded via Instagram, saying “So much being done about the protests. So little being done about what we are protesting about. We will not be silenced.”
