‘Hey Congress, do something’: Bedoya uses goal celebration to demand end to gun violence
Philadelphia Union captain Alejandro Bedoya brought attention to this weekend’s mass shootings in Ohio and Texas when he called out Congress after scoring for his team in Washington DC.
After Bedoya scored his team’s opening goal in their 5-1 win over DC United, the USA international ran over to a TV microphone and shouted: ‘Hey Congress, do something now. End gun violence. Let’s go!’ The comment could be heard on Fox Sports’ coverage of the game.
