Sage Steele Apologizes For Comments Made On Jay Cutler’s Podcast After Being Reprimanded By ESPN

ESPN anchor Sage Steele caught a bunch of flak over comments she made on former quarterback Jay Cutler’s podcast, “Uncut With Jay Cutler”.

Steele was critical of the feeling that she was forced to get the COVID vaccine. And she also drew heavy criticism when talking about former president Barack Obama’s race.

Sage Steele sent out an apology over her comments.

“I know my recent comments created controversy for the company, and I apologize,” Steele said. “We are in the midst of an extremely challenging time that impacts all of us, and it’s more critical than ever that we communicate constructively and thoughtfully.”

ESPN released a statement of their own on Sage Steele.

“At ESPN, we embrace different points of view – dialogue and discussion makes this place great,” the network said in its statement. “That said, we expect that those points of view be expressed respectfully, in a manner consistent with our values, and in line with our internal policies. We are having direct conversations with Sage and those conversations will remain private.”

The network also announced that Sage Steele would not be appearing on some programming this week.

Sage Steele will likely be back at her post at ESPN in no time. But I’m not sure she’ll be signing herself up for any tell-all podcasts in the near future.
