If Sage Steele is trending on Twitter that likely means that a black person somewhere has angered her in some way. This time, Sage Steele sounded off during tonight’s NBA Countdown show with Michael Wilbon, directing her wrath at Andre Iguodala’s use of the N-word during the Warriors last post game press conference.
Steele didn’t like the fact that Iguodala used the N-word several times during the presser, and couldn’t understand why Michael Wilbon was not upset like she was.
Sage Steele: He (Iguodala) dropped the N word three times! that was no accident! are you ok with that?
Michael Wilbon: yeah

Steele went to the N-word double standard argument which is heard often by conservative pundits and white people who don’t understand the dynamics of the word. Steele is often a vocal critic of black people in general and couldn’t wait to jump at Andre Iguodala for his comments. Twitter had some funny reactions to Steele’s NBA Countdown comments.
Sage Steele asked Michael Wilbon if he was ok with Iguodala using the N word like he committed murdered lol

Steele later responded to the criticism with the following tweet.
I'm used to it! IMO, the N word is NEVER ok–no matter who says it. The dbl standard is pathetic, harmful & sad..continues to divide us. https://t.co/DyGaxnKsBX
