It was a horrible and sad weekend in the United States with back to back mass shootings taking place in El Paso, Texas and Dayton, Ohio. Reaction from the incidents flooded all sorts of media for the entirety of the weekend, and made it's way to the soccer pitch as Philadelphia Union captain Alejandro Bedoya used his platform celebrating a 1-0 goal over the D.C. United to state the following:
After scoring, Bedoya ran toward the corner of the field, grabbed an on-field television microphone and shouted into it. "Hey Congress, do something now. End gun violence. Let's go!" he said.
The comment was easily heard on FS1's broadcast of the game but was not audible for the majority of those in attendance at the stadium.
