All those controversial statements that Sage Steele has made seem to have taken their toll.
On Tuesday, ESPN announced that Michelle Beadle is replacing Steele as the full-time ABC and ESPN NBA Countdown host. In other words, Steele got fired!
Perhaps criticizing Muslim ban protesters at LAX Airport for "disrupting travel plans," saying the "worst racism" she received is from "Black people" and commenting that Black people shouldn't use the N-word was just too much for the Worldwide Leader in Sports to bear any longer.
Needless to say, upon learning the news of her axing, Twitter proceeded to clown the hell out of Steele with zero chill — with one site even calling her "Sunken Place Sage Steele," a tag that has seemingly caught fire on social media.
Here are several ways that Twitter dragged Sage Steele for being fired.

You did it to yourself!
