ESPN’s Sage Steele is trying really hard to become the new Stacey Dash. And this time she’s complaining about how she had to wade through protesters while dragging her luggage at Los Angeles International Airport.

“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,” Steele wrote on Instagram.

So Steele had to walk a whole 2 miles through those pesky protesters so she could eventually catch a flight to cover the Super Bowl. Woe is fucking her. I imagine that those who were detained had an awful time having their lives probed, and being thought of as terrorists all weekend was probably a little more stressful.

Of course, people on Twitter had a lot to say about Steele’s complaints:


Poor Sage. Rolling luggage is such hard work.
