Sunday afternoon, ESPN host Sage Steele took to Instagram to vent her frustrations after missing her flight due to the continual airport protests!
After wrapping up the “NBA Countdown” alongside Jaden Rose, Sage Steele immediately headed to LAX to board her flight to Houston, Texas. But as a result of Donald Trump’s executive order barring ‘refugees and immigrants from at least seven Muslim- majority countries from entering the U.S.’, protests around the country had erupted into airports. Especially airports where migrants were immediately detained!
Due to the protest, Sage Steele missed her flight, and she wasn’t too pleased about the ordeal. Ms. Steele took to IG with the following post:
“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.”
Within seconds of her post, people began criticizing her on ALL social media platforms! Of course with the WORST being #BlackTwitter
But what are your thoughts on this? Do you agree with Sage? Or, do you think she’s over-reacting?
