ESPN's Sage Steele Under Fire For Controversial Instagram Post

The anchor is getting criticized for a recent Instagram post.

ESPN anchor Sage Steele posted a photo on Instagram on Sunday of the protests taking place at LAX, with a caption critical of the crowds, as they caused her to miss her flight to Houston and wait seven hours.

"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."

Here's the post.

Steele took to Twitter to address some of the criticism.

That likely won't be the extent of her comments on this.
