Philadelphia Union captain Alejandro Bedoya used his goal celebration in Sunday’s MLS game at D.C. United to call on Congress to act on gun violence, following a pair of mass shootings in the U.S. this weekend.
After scoring at Audi Field in the nation’s capital, 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.
