Controversial USWNT star Korbin Albert is BOOED after coming on in rainbow-themed jersey vs. South Korea on first day of Pride month

USWNT star Korbin Albert was booed by fans on Saturday as she was introduced vs. South Korea in a rainbow-themed jersey.

Albert, 20, publicly apologized in March for reposting a now-deleted video of a Christian worship space preaching against homosexuality and ‘feeling transgender.’

And on Saturday – the first day of Pride month in the US – she was jeered by fans as she took the field in Colorado during her team’s eventual 4-0 wiin.

Albert, like the rest of her teammates, was wearing a Pride-themed shirt with rainbow-colored numbers.

The midfielder was also booed by fans in April when she was introduced by Japan in the SheBelieves Cup.

Saturday’s match was coach Emma Hayes’ first in charge of the Americans.

Mallory Swanson and Tierna Davidson both notched braces in the friendly win.

The USA will face South Korea again on Tuesday, June 4.
