The Houston Dash of the National Women’s Soccer League traded forward Kealia Ohai to the Chicago Dash on Monday, a move Ohai said she is “extremely excited” for.
Her fiancé, Houston Texans defensive end J.J. Watt, is excited, too — but not necessarily about the coverage his future spouse is getting.
While Watt said on Monday that he is “very proud” and “excited” for Ohai, his attention on Tuesday turned instead to a local Houston news outlet that neglected to use Ohai’s name in a tweet announcing the news of her trade. The post only referred to Ohai as “J.J. Watt’s fiancée,” causing the NFL star to respond on his own Twitter page.
“This headline is trash,” he began, before explaining that Ohai is “incredible entirely in her own merit and deserves to be treated as such.”
