Ex-US women’s soccer league player Stefany Ferrer Van Ginkel ‘flashes Nazi salute’ at pro-Israel protesters in LA | The Sun
A SHOCKING video appears to show a former US women's soccer league player flashing the Nazi salute at pro-Israel protesters.
Stefany Ferrer Van Ginkel, a former midfielder for the National Women's Soccer League's Angel City Football Club, appeared to give the "Sieg Heil" salute to a group of pro-Israel protesters in Beverly Hills on Sunday evening.
Ginkel, 25, was riding in the passenger seat alongside her boyfriend and United City Football Club player, Samim Haydari, when the incident occurred, according to KTLA.
"Shame on you," demonstrators shouted at the Brazilian native, the video showed.
The video was shared on Monday by the watch group StopAntiSemitism, which asked X, formerly known as Twitter, users for help in identifying the couple.
Angel City Football Club, where Ginkel had a short stint in 2022, condemned their ex-players actions, saying: "Stefany Ferrer Van Ginkel (stefvangi21) does not play for Angel City Football Club, nor has she been affiliated with the club since September 2022.
"We condemn her recent actions and statements."
Haydari issued an apology on his Instagram account, which has since been deleted, saying he and Ginkel were acting childish.
"I know we have approached the situation with hate and made it worse with our actions," Haydari said in the since-deleted video.
"We acted childish… All we can do is become better [and] learn a lesson from this. We cannot change the past."
