I'm asking more about sporting events between different teams in the USA as opposed to other international events that might prompt the chant.


Hmmm I don't know. Maybe there might be some 'USA USA USA' chants against Canadian teams in the NBA or something, not sure, I've never heard of that over here in Australia.

We also live in a world where douchebags will verbally assault someone and question their citizenship if they're speaking anything but English in public, wearing clothes that don't fit a certain norm, or even if they're just brown. For some douchebag(s) to likewise pervert the "USA" chant into a passive aggressive question of a team's citizenship isn't out of the realm of imagination.

Reminds me of claims that the Australian flag is offensive to some in Australia... or that you're more likely to be a racist if you own one.

People can and will construe anything as offensive this days, so I'm sure this would apply to someone out there.

Anyone who opposes the idea of chanting USA USA USA should just gtfo out the USA. It is not an offensive chant no matter when it's used, if you think it is then your head is has just been infected by the cancer known as political correctness and/or intersectional feminism, turning you into a mindless sjw who needs urgent psychiatric help. Or a free helicopter ride.
