Here's Why Hope Solo's Being Trolled With "Zika Virus" Chants
United States soccer's goalkeeper, Hope Solo, is having a bit of a rough time lately.
Solo wasn't even going to come to Rio back in February, citing her fear of contracting the virus. She changed her mind in May, but said she'd be spending a lot of time locked up in her room.
Since the tweets, pretty much everything Solo does on social media is hounded by people wishing Zika upon her. Literally people are just commenting the word "ZIKA" repetitively or using bug emojis.
And while the jeering may ~sound~ intense, Solo doesn't seem that bothered.
The United States beat France 1-0 on Saturday. And Solo has yet to concede a goal at the Rio Olympics.
