Snoop Dogg ranted about why the U.S. Women's Soccer team deserves more money. 'The men never win.'

On Sunday, the U.S.women's national soccer team beat the Netherlands 2-0, and secured themselves the World Cup.

Just three months ago, 28 team members sued the U.S. soccer federation for gender discrimination, specifically, paying the women's team a fraction of what their male counterparts receive. While the women's team scored 13 goals in a single game against Thailand, more than the men's team has scored during all of their World Cups combined since 2006, female players are still paid 38 cents to their male counterparts' dollar.

The prize money for the 2018 men’s World Cup was $400 million, while the women’s team will only get paid $30 million for winning the 2019 World Cup.

So, when the women's team secured the World Cup on Sunday, many of their fans cheered and started an equal pay chant in solidarity with the players.

The dialogue over why the women's team deserves not only equal pay, but better pay than the men's team (due to their superior performance) has continued online, and the rapper and entrepreneur Snoop Dogg weighed in with a supportive Instagram video demanding the women get their due.
