Megan Rapinoe Says Former OL Reign Coach Made ‘Fat-Shaming’ Remarks

Megan Rapinoe discovered in an job interview with NPR this week that previous OL Reign coach Farid Benstiti manufactured “fat-shaming” reviews to players. 

The coach was pressured to resign in July, and at the time, there wasn’t a great deal unveiled as to why the move was produced. But the Washington Submit reported in October that a criticism was filed from Benstiti for verbal abuse, specifically that he “allegedly manufactured inappropriate comments to gamers about their fitness and diet.” The team’s CEO Monthly bill Predmore explained in a assertion to the Post at the time that he requested the coach’s resignation after being notified of “the inappropriate remarks by a participant.”
