After the U.S. beat the UK in the World Cup semifinals, Alex was criticized for celebrating by pretending to sip tea — which she said was inspired by Sophie, who often says “and that’s the tea.”
Sophie took to her Instagram page to talk about the controversy, saying:
“I’m on my honeymoon, I’m not really looking at my phone much but I feel like this deserves a mention,” Sophie says in a story posted to her Instagram page.
“Unfortunately, the UK women’s football team lost at the World Cup. And of course I’m incredibly sad and incredibly proud of their team. But I am so honored that we lost to such an incredible team, the US women’s football team.
“Alex Morgan, all the haters that were saying this was disrespectful, I’m honored that you thought of me. And all those people that are hating on you are probably sitting at home millennials drinking kombucha. And I’m really f**king proud of you Alex Morgan, congratulations on your win. And that’s the mother f**cking tea.”
Sophie and Joe are currently on their honeymoon after tying the knot in Paris, France last weekend.
