Sage Steele Slams Protestors For Inconveniencing Travel Plans
ESPN’s Sage Steele is coming under fire for the comments she made about some travelers (herself included) being inconvenienced by protestors. As you know, over the weekend, protests erupted across the country, in response to Trump’s executive order temporary banning people from certain countries. Apparently, Sage was attempting to fly out of LAX, one of the airports that some were protesting at. Posting a photo of the protestors, she wrote:
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. ??
