USA soccer star Allie Long's L.A. hotel room was broken into. and her wedding ring, cash and her honorary key to NYC were stolen.

Allie Long's celebratory day as a world champion ended on the opposite note as her Los Angeles hotel room was burglarized after the 2019 ESPY Awards. "Do you make copies [Mayor de Blasio]?"

The incident happened when Long and her husband left their room and the door was ajar at the Ritz-Carlton hotel, and the Los Angeles Police Department is investigating video from the hotel, according to KABC in LA.

Long has been celebrating all week following the United States Women's National Team's fourth World Cup trophy and had just returned from New York City where the team had been celebrated with a ticker-tape-parade down the "Canyon of Heroes".

Rapinoe, one of the the team's top scorers at the 2019 Women's World Cup in France, went viral on social media during the Women's World Cup for saying she was not going "to the (expletive) White House".

The mayor responded to Long's tweet Friday morning, writing: "So sorry to hear it, Allie".

The USWNT then flew to Los Angeles to attend the ESPYs, where the squad won the "Best Team" award. Hang in there. Don't worry about the key. The mayor, not exactly a strong proponent of accountability, made a decision to give the soccer player a new key. "We got you covered", the mayor's response read.

Long later posted a photo on Instagram of herself with her gold medal and husband Jose Batista, along with the caption, "Take my ring but not my mans (or medal Thank God)".
