LOS ANGELES (AP) — An ESPN anchor who vented about missing her flight because of airport immigration protesters is drawing criticism from people who say she is being insensitive.

Sage Steele posted a photo of protesters speaking out against President Donald Trump’s order to temporarily suspend immigration from seven Muslim majority nations at Los Angeles International Airport on Instagram on Sunday night.

In the caption, she noted that she and other passengers had to drag luggage nearly 2 miles to get to the airport, but still missed their flights. She writes that she loves seeing people exercise their right to protest, but was saddened “to see the joy on their faces knowing that they were successful in disrupting so many people’s travel plans.”

Steele defended her post to critics on Twitter.

ESPN spokesman Ben Cafardo declined comment.

    Smh, she fails to see the big picture, folks who FAIL to see & decide to stay silent with whats going on now will receive the same treatment from others when their turn comes around… Remember today its “their fight not mine ill just mind my own business” … tomorrow it’ll be “my fight come on you all help me in this fight”

    POOR YOU SAGE, AT LEAST YOU GOT TO WHERE YOU WERE GOING, THINK OF THE MANY WHO WERE IMMIGRANTS AND TRAVELING TO GET HOME, TO VISIT A LOVED ONE, WHAT ABOUT THEIR INCONVENIENCE DUE TO THE SCATTER BRAINED IDEA OF THE SO CALLED PRESIDENT. YOU JUST BETTER BE GLAD HE DIDN’T MAKE YO BLACK ASS GO BACK TO AFRICA. #THINKBEFOREYOUOPENYOURMOUTH “FORTUNATELY FOR ME THE 7HOUR WAIT WON’T AFFECT ME MUCH”. JUST STUPID.

    Amber. No politician give a darn about anything but your vote and their wallets. Democrats, Independents and Republicans, they’re all the same. Many are bought and sold at the market.

    • I concur FallMornings: And, yet you still have folk encouraging Blacks to pick btwn the lessor of two evils. donald trump is the worse sort of bama: he has privilege, lacks qualifications & can lead the working and non-working disenfranchised into war. But, heck, both gangs of democrats & republicans have done that.

      I would like to hear to hear from the Silent Majority of black folk who want to know when the Liberals or conservatives will vigorously fight for the black community as those here illegally: regardless of color, country, or mode of arrival.
