Stars: They’re just like us. Especially when it comes to being grossed out by bed bugs.

Last night, Alex Morgan and Christine Sinclair sent a few not-so-happy tweets to the National Women’s Soccer League (NWSL), according to Sports Illustrated. While Morgan’s tweet has since been deleted, Sinclair’s is still available for the world to see:

The two Portland Thorns Football Club players were staying in the Adams Mark Hotel in Kansas City, MO, technically a three-star hotel, but with only a 1.9/5 star rating on Google and a review by a recent guest calling it “ABSOLUTE GARBAGE!”

According to SI, Morgan’s tweet called out the NWSL for these conditions, implying that this wasn’t the first time the player had stayed in less-than-luxurious accommodations:

The bed bug fiasco is just one example of the inequalities between male and female professional soccer players. As a simple point of comparison, the all-male New York City Football Club announced its partnership with the four-star Grand Hyatt back in March. No bed bugs have been found there…yet.
