Sports anchor Sage Steele has landed herself in hot water for the second time this week.

First, she criticized Tampa Bay Buccaneer Mike Evans for refusing to stand for the National Anthem after Trump’s election. Now she’s under fire for a lengthy Facebook post about Black people’s apprehensive approach to diversity.

“Instead of praising or uplifting each other,” Steele writes, “way too many people of color choose to tear down, mock and spew hatred at other blacks who feel differently, think differently, or make decisions that are different from theirs. That, my friends, is hypocrisy at its best.”

You can read her entire Facebook post below:

Twitter immediately proceeded to flood Sage’s mentions, calling her out for hypocrisy.
