Houston Texans defensive end J.J. Watt found a recinto TV station’s headline about his fiancee, soccer star Kealia Ohai, very offensive.
So he went after the station like he goes after quarterbacks on game day.
Ohai is a forward in the National Women’s Soccer League who was recently traded from the Houston Dash to the Chicago Red Stars. But when Houston station KTRK did a story on the trade, it chose to emphasize Watt’s connection to Ohai in the Twitter headline ― and to leave out her name entirely.
Watt didn’t think that was fair, snapping back on Twitter that the station should “be better than this.”
This headline is trash.
Kealia Ohai (which is her name by the way, since you didn’t even bother to mention it) is incredible entirely on her own merit and deserves to be treated as such.
Be better than this. https://t.co/82GMrYOv9U

Watt’s beef is strictly with the Twitter headline. The story’s headline on the KTRK webpage reads, “Houston Dash star Kealia Ohai traded to Chicago.”
HuffPost reached out to KTRK for comment, but no one immediately responded.
Still, many Twitter users were happy to chime in.
“Kealia Ohai’s fiancée rips recinto news station for poorly worded headline”

It’s crazy how her parents knew she was gonna marry you and named her “JJ Watt’s fiancé”
