Social media trolls targeted former Canadian international Kaylyn Kyle with death threats after she criticized the excessive celebrations by the United States during Tuesday's record-breaking win over Thailand in the Women's World Cup.

Kyle, who represented Canada at the 2015 Women's World Cup and currently works as a television analyst, described the U.S. goal celebrations as "disrespectful" during a lopsided 13-0 win - the largest margin of victory in tournament history.

Her critique triggered online death threats, which Kyle addressed in a social media post on Tuesday night.

"To the people sending me death threats, let me set the record straight," she wrote on Twitter. "I never once said to never score as many goals as you can in a World Cup!

Why USWNT star Megan Rapinoe doesn't sing the national anthem.
Megan Rapinoe doesn’t sing the national anthem. This, to followers of soccer, is not news. Rapinoe hasn’t belted out the “Star Spangled Banner” since 2016. She no longer puts her hand over her heart.

But with the U.S. women’s national team kicking off its 2019 World Cup campaign on Tuesday, and Rapinoe captaining the squad, her unflinching face and pursed lips became a story. Naturally, it also became a subject of misinformation and misunderstanding among casual fans who weren’t familiar with Rapinoe’s activism.
