With Donald Trump’s Muslim Ban over the weekend came tons of protests at airports across America. One airport that was affected the most was Los Angeles’ LAX airport, which attracted around 4,000 protestors! For those who fly into LAX, you already know how bad the congestion there is on a normal day, so you can imagine how it got with a protest!

Despite their statement being made peacefully and properly, many were unhappy with the inconvenience, and one of those people was ESPN personality Sage Steele. Sage had a flight at LAX on Sunday and ended up having to walk two miles because of the protests, and took to social media to say that while she appreciated the protests and the message, she did not approve of how they inconvenienced people. Naturally, she was dragged to the beyond for her message. Check out the posts below.

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.
