Twitter bashes Sage Steele for criticizing protestors.
Americans across the country swarmed major airports over the weekend to protest President Trump's Muslim travel ban which he put into effect late last week.
At Los Angeles' LAX airport, more than 4,000 protestors set up shop outside of the Tom Bradley International Terminal, shutting down traffic in front of the terminal while denouncing Trump's immigration policy.
This massive protest obviously inconvenienced a number of travellers looking to catch their flights out of LAX including ESPN's Sage Steele who decided to post a photograph of the protesters on her instagram account accompanied by a caption that shared how "saddened" she was that the 4,000+ protestors disrupted so many people's travel plans.
As you'd expect, Sage Steele was blasted in the comments of her Instagram post as well as on twitter for her remarks about how the LAX protest put a damper on her travel plans.
Check out her original IG post and some of the backlash below.
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. 🇺🇸

@sagesteele hey Sage..w/ all due respect..what types of protest do you prefer? The 'disruption' is the point of protest.— Taylor Rooks (@TaylorRooks) January 30, 2017
Dear Sage Steele,— 🗽NUFF (@nuffsaidNY) January 30, 2017
Show me a protest that didn't "disrupt" anyone's day, and I'll show you one that didn't matter.
Sage Steele is impulsive & lack critical thought. She will be traded during the next racial draft. pic.twitter.com/WC7GT3SNA9— soulonice13 (@soulonice13) January 30, 2017

The black delegation would like to trade Sage Steele for Michael Moore and a bag of peanut M&M's.— D. (@desto22) January 30, 2017
Sage Steele is what privilege & being willfully obtuse looks like. She's like Carlton in that Fresh Prince ep. where he & Will get arrested.— Madril Smith (@Ladair1975) January 30, 2017
