Sage Steele is getting dragged like a Raggedy Ann doll through the streets of social media after she complained about the travel ban protests at the airport inconveniencing travelers.
In a post on her Instagram page, the ESPN host posted a photo of the protests at LAX and captioned it:
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 swoop down was swift and relentless.

Sage responded to one fan saying her opinion doesn’t make her “the worst.”
All good! But just bc someone has a different opinion, doesn't mean they're "the worst". Unless, of course, only YOUR opinion is allowed???? https://t.co/iiZXuD4Ne2
