U.S. soccer star Megan Rapinoe says she will continue to stand firm with Colin Kaepernick ... even after a pro soccer team in Washington prevented her from protesting the National Anthem Wednesday.
Rapinoe was leaving D.C. early Thursday morning -- when we asked her about the Washington Spirit playing the "Star-Spangled Banner" while the teams were still in their locker rooms in an effort to keep her from "hijacking" the pre-game tradition.
Rapinoe had taken a knee during the anthem at a previous game -- in support of Kaepernick's protest.
Check out the clip ... sounds like Rapinoe doesn't plan on backing down anytime soon.
