Controversial ESPN host Sage Steele will no longer be hosting “NBA Countdown,” a role which will be taken over by Michelle Beadle.

Although some assumed Steele had been fired, the host will continue with the network as the leader of “SportsCenter on the Road,” covering high profile assignments like the Final Four and The Masters, the San Francisco Chronicle reported.

Steele was criticized in January for complaining on social media about missing a flight because of airport protesters of President Trump’s travel ban, the San Francisco Chronicle reported. Steele has also been critical of the Black Lives Matter movement, saying that she thinks “all lives matter.”

Twitter seemed joyous about her departure from the show.
