Sage Steele Suspended From ESPN, Has Positive COVID Test

Videos by OutKick

Embattled ESPN host Sage Steele recently tested positive for COVID despite being mandated for vaccination, according to her Instagram and ESPN. Steele reportedly dealt with mild symptoms, but will neither attend the espnW summit this week nor appear on any episodes of SportsCenter as a result of the positive test.

Steele’s illness coincides with a slew of critical comments made toward vaccination mandates in a podcast interview recently, handing ESPN executives an easy excuse for pulling her off the air. Some sort of disciplinary action for her comments was likely, given ESPN and parent-company Disney’s intense liberal slant, but now the illness can provide cover fire for any suspension while execs deal with the leftist insubordination in-house.

Steele originally called vaccination mandates “sick and scary,” referencing the company’s threat to fire her if she didn’t comply by Sept. 30.

“It’s scary to me in many ways, but I have a job that I love and frankly a job that I need,” Steele said. “I’m not surprised that it got to this point especially with Disney, I mean a global company like that.”

To contract COVID despite complying with the company’s mandate just adds insult to injury. But to challenge the vaccine’s efficacy immediately draws the ire of millions of government sycophants who believe that the entire pandemic would immediately end if everyone just got the jab. For now, add Sage Steele to the growing list of vaccinated individuals who managed to contract COVID despite all of the protections that the vaccine offers.

    • Your act is old and tired man. You have to know that right? I mean honestly, you can’t be proud to be you. It must be exhausting. Fake outrage after fake outrage, race hustle after race hustle. What does it feel like to wake up everyday and live the sorry existence that is your life. It must be miserable. I used to just laugh at your comments but now I’m starting to feel sorry for you. I hope you can get some happiness in your life. Life is too short to be a trolling dickbag all the time. Im definitely pulling for you dude.

      • Don’t try and put your Shane of supporting Donald Trump on me. You are the one who threw away your Family Values by supporting Grab em by the P guy while saluting the VERY FINE PEOPLE in Charlottesville. That’s on you…You must be so proud? WE are lmbao at you clowns. We know it hurts, the last election showed America is awake and ready to rid ourselves of the last of the Confederacy….

        • I said you can’t be proud to be you. Can you read. I’m happy as shit. My life is great. My family is great. No shame here pal. “We know it hurts” who’s we? You and mama dukes. Nothing hurting over here bud. We didn’t lose shit. The election was rigged, even 30% of dems think some fishy shit went on. 81 million votes. Haha. You mean to tell me more blacks came out for Basement Biden than the first black man to represent the democrat party for president. Come on man, you don’t really believe that do you. Not a chance in hell. It blows my mind the level of spin and mental gymnastics it takes to be a democrat. Try to enjoy the rest of your day.
