ESPN's Sage Steele has come under fire for her Instagram post concerning protests at LAX Airport over President Donald Trump's immigration executive order.

Steele shared the above post Sunday in which she commented on the protesters disrupting airport service to the point where she and a number of other people missed flights after having to walk two miles to reach their gate.

"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," she wrote.

Social media users were quick to criticize Steele for her post, with many alluding to notable historic protests.
