Flavor Flav Pledges Support to US Women’s Water Polo team

Hip hop artist Flavor Flav has pledged his support for the U.S. Women’s Water Polo Team.

“The US Women’s Waterpolo team has won the GOLD MEDAL THREE OLYMPICS IN A ROW,” Flav wrote on X. “These women should not have to be working 2-3 side jobs to be able to compete.”

It started with a post by three-time gold medalist Maggie Steffens posting about players being in need of financial support leading up to the Paris Olympics.

“Most Olympians need a 2nd (or 3rd) job to support chasing the dream (myself included!),” Steffens wrote on Instagram. “We always need more help.”

Just a few hours later, Flavor Flav, a founding member of Public Enemy, a pioneering hip hop group responded.

“As a girl dad and supporter of all women’s sports – imma personally sponsor you my girl,” Flav posted. “Whatever you need. And imma sponsor the whole team.”

Having financial stability has often been an issue for Olympics who have to balance training and life, and often other jobs to be able to maintain their training.

Steffens and her teammates were stunned.

“Shocked! Thank you,” Steffens wrote on her Instagram story.
