Sage Steele is under fire Monday morning after a controversial Instagram post left hundreds of thousands calling her out on social media, some even calling for her firing.
The popular ESPN anchor, who was in route to the Super Bowl, was not happy with the LAX airport protests in the wake of President Donald Trump’s travel ban after it caused her to miss her flight along with those of others.
She took to this Instagram post to voice her displeasure.
So THIS is why thousands of us dragged luggage nearly 2 miles to get to LAX, but still missed our flights. Fortunately, a 7 hour wait for the next flight to Houston won’t affect me that much, but my heart sank for the elderly and parents with small children who did their best to walk all that way but had no chance of making their flights. I love witnessing people exercise their right to protest! But it saddened me to see the joy on their faces knowing that they were successful in disrupting so many people’s travel plans. Yes, immigrants were affected by this as well. Brilliant. ??
The internet proceeded to rip the popular anchor.

Sage Steele would have told Dr. Martin Luther King that she wasnt able to catch a cab because his March in Selma disrupted cab service

Dear Sage Steele,
Show me a protest that didn’t “disrupt” anyone’s day, and I’ll show you one that didn’t matter.

God forbid that Sage Steele is inconvenienced by peaceful protest against injustice.

Sage steele is the perfect example of what is destroying our culture. Selfishness over selflessness. Personal gain over the public good

Something always told me something was fishy with Sage Steele. Her teeth to gum ratio is too off when she smiles. Too much gum.

The black delegation would like to trade Sage Steele for Michael Moore and a bag of peanut M&M’s.

“Let’s do a protest where it doesn’t interrupt or inconvenience anyone”
Umm that’s not how any of this works ?

What Sage Steele said is nothing short of idiotic and shows how privileged she THINK she is.
