Twitter Unleashes Ruthlessly Hilarious Responses to Sage Steele's Reported Firing

But when Sage Steele, a black, conservative-leaning host did just that, they replaced her with someone far more liberal.

It seems that would mean Steele's tenure on the pregame and halftime show is over, but it's unlikely she's going anywhere, as she signed a multi-year deal with ESPN in September. In January, she took to Instagram to complain about being inconvenienced by people protesting President Donald Trump's executive order on immigration and refugees at Los Angeles International Airport.

She didn't win any more friends on the left when she criticized NFL players for kneeling during the National Anthem, and cut short an interview with Arcade Fire lead singer Win Butler when he started pushing his liberal opinions at the NBA Celebrity All-Star Game, according to Fox News.

Michelle Beadle has worked for ESPN since 2009.

Skipper and the rest of the ESPN family came to Steele's defense after it appeared that many people were celebrating the network's change of hosts on social media. Because of those outspoken opinions that have many times been based on race relations in the USA, many black Twitter users rejoiced when they learned of the news that Steele had been replaced.

Network veteran Sage Steele is out. She will also host ESPN's and ABC's studio coverage throughout the NBA Playoffs, which includes ESPN's exclusive coverage of the Western Conference Finals.

Michelle Beadle is the new full-time host of NBA Countdown on ABC and ESPN.

Beadle called the role the "best job in sports". "Did I mention that Kawhi Leonard is the M.V.P. of the league?"

Peep some of the reactions below on social media about news of her replacement. She even tweeted Tampa Bay Buccaneers Wide Receiver Mike Evans.

However, while no one can prove Steele's political views are the reason for her removal from NBA Countdown, it's perfectly reasonable to claim that the reaction to her firing has everything to do with her political views.
