Roughly a day after the U.S. women’s soccer team paraded through New York City while spewing obscenities and behaving like obnoxious, egocentric brats, one team member suffered what some have described as a “karmic” burglary and lost some cash, her wedding ring and the keys to NYC.

“After the @ESPYS show someone stole my wedding ring, cash and the key to my favorite city after just receiving it from my hotel room. Do you make copies @NYCMayor ? I would love a new one,” flag-tossing player Allie Long tweeted at 10:15 pm EST Thursday evening.

According to TMZ. the burglary occurred at a hotel room she’d rented in Los Angeles prior to this year’s Excellence in Sports Performance Yearly Award show Thursday evening in downtown LA.

“Law enforcement sources tell us Long … had her Ritz-Carlton hotel room burglarized Thursday afternoon,” the gossip website confirmed. “We’re told Allie’s wedding ring — worth about $15k — along with the key to NYC awarded to her yesterday for winning the World Cup were taken in the theft. Sources tell us there were no signs of forced entry … and police believe the door may have been left ajar.”

Long appears to be taking the burglary in stride. In an Instagram photo that showed her standing by her apparent boyfriend, she wrote, “Take my ring but not my man (or medal Thank God).”

Meanwhile, some among the public have responded to the burglary by suggesting that the burglary was a result of karma paying Long an allegedly much-deserved visit.

Their animosity toward her stemmed from two complaints.

First, following the U.S. women’s soccer team’s World Cup victory last Sunday, Long disrespectfully dropped the American flag to the ground and then almost stepped on it. Why? So she could participate in a photo-op with fellow player and noted anti-American Megan Rapinoe.

It took midfielder Kelley O’Hara rushing to pick up the flag to prevent it from suffering anymore undeserved abuse and disrespect.

Watch:

Second, many among the public were already annoyed with the entire team for the uncouth, ogreish behavior that was displayed during the parade Wednesday through NYC.

Recorded after the team was handed the keys to New York City in recognition of its achievement, one video clip from the parade shows fellow player Ashlyn Harris obnoxiously bragging.

“Hide your kids, hide your wives, lock your f–kin doors, because I got the key too the motherf–king city, and I’m coming for all ya’ll b–ches,” she drunkenly says.

The team has also taken of late to making false allegations about unfair pay and demanding that they be paid as much as their male counterparts. But missing from their grievance-laced rants has been any notion of reality.

“Last year, the men’s World Cup in Russia generated more than $6 billion in revenue; the participating teams shared about $400 million,” The Federalist reported earlier this week.

“That is less than 7 percent of overall revenue. Meanwhile, the 2019 Women’s World Cup made somewhere in the region of $131 million, doling out $30 million, well more than 20 percent of collected revenue, to the participating teams. It seems a pay gap does exist, after all.”

Moreover, it’s unclear whether the U.S. men’s soccer team has ever acted as childishly in public as the women’s team did Wednesday. What’s known is that members of the men’s team came under fire from the media three years ago after they dared to mock a member of the women’s team for being arrested on a DUI.

Using Google, BizPac Review was unable to find any examples of members of the U.S. men’s soccer team being arrested in recent times for driving drunk.

Below are more examples of the team’s obnoxiousness from Wednesday:

In light of the flag-dropping, the trash-talking and the obnoxiousness, some in the public feel as if Long being burglarized was just another example of karma in action.

To be clear, BizPac Review does not condone burglary or the celebration of burglary. This is simply a report of what happened and how some in the public responded to it.
