On Monday she was inducted into the San Francisco Bay Arena Hall of Fame in California and the plaque unveiled in her honour has gone viral on social media - and not in a good way.

Yeah, that looks more like Crispin Glover after an allergic breakout than Chastain...

Smith, now a soccer coach at Santa Clara University, explained that the bronze plaque honoring his wife - a two-time Olympic gold medalist and two-time World Cup champion - did not serve her justice because she is such a handsome powerhouse - something the 1999 photo of her captured for all of eternity.

And she was not alone.

On Twitter, fans compared the likeness on the plaque to former President Jimmy Carter, actor Gary Busey and others.

USA diplomat in China has brain injury after hearing 'abnormal' sounds
China's Foreign Ministry and National Health Commission did not immediately respond to faxed questions about the report. The US has held Cuba responsible, either for allowing the suspected attacks to happen or for carrying them out itself.

She said diplomatically: 'It's not the most flattering but it's nice'.

But "it's nice", added Chastain, who once provided the sports world with a more enduring image-her rip-the-shirt-off celebration after a World Cup win in 1999.

O'Brien said that while he "didn't think it was well done" when he saw Chastain's original plaque, "it's really up to the inductee" and that Chastain told him she "didn't have a problem with it".

Fortunately, it sounds as though the BASHOF has heard the outrage and is going to create a new plaque for Chastain.

"No, I didn't feel it was a flawless representation", Chastain told KTVU on Tuesday.

After scrolling through the swarm of responses that have been flooding social media since the plaque's unveiling, one thing becomes abundantly clear: nearly none of the reactions have been positive and nearly all of the comparisons have been male.

O'Brien declined to give the artist's name, saying: 'I don't want to hurt someone's career.

And here's Chastain standing next to the plaque while being honored Monday night. I don't know how hard it is to make one of these things. "But it's the right thing to do".

She was inducted into the National Soccer Hall of Fame in 2017.

Let's take a look at some of the best Twitter reactions to the plaque gone wrong.
