JJ Watt went after ABC13 Houston for not naming his fiancee, soccer player Kealia Ohai, in a headline about her being traded from the Houston Dash of the National Women’s Soccer League to the Chicago Stars and just gave the local ABC affiliate a bunch of pageviews for its post that would’ve fallen off into the abyss if JJ would’ve just went about his day.
But JJ Watt knows that ABC13 Houston needs him and they better start playing ball instead of not putting respeck on Ohai’s name. JJ could easily tell ABC13 they’re not invited to cover his wedding. JJ could tell ABC13 they’re no longer granted interviews. This is a big, Do you know who I am? moment for JJ.
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

Ohai played in 23 of the Dash’s 24 matches and had two goals and an assist as a forward/midfielder. She’s spent her entire professional soccer career with Houston, including 108 match starts. Her biggest year came in 2016 when she had 11 goals and three assists in 20 games.
