Curt Schilling Has Been Fired By ESPN After Posting Anti-Transgender Meme On Facebook
It seems like ESPN has had enough of Curt Schilling and his controversial opinions.
Today, the Sports giant let go of the baseball analyst after he posted an anti-transgender meme on Facebook Wednesday afternoon.
Schilling was not apologetic and doubled down on his views when confronted about the meme.
You frauds out there ranting and screaming about my ‘opinions’ (even if it isn’t) and comments are screaming for “tolerance” and “acceptance” while you refuse to do and be either.
YOU’RE the ones making it the issue. I don’t care, if you ask me about any of the topics it’s likely (much to the chagrin of many) I’ll answer with my opinion.
There are things I have deeply held beliefs in, things I have that are core to who I am, things I am passionate about. If you ask me about them it’s likely I’ll give you a passionate answer, whether you like that answer or not is completely up to you. I am not going to give you answers to make sure you like what I say, let the rest of the insecure world do that.
This isn’t the first time Schilling has been in hot water with the company. Just last August, Schilling was suspended by ESPN after comparing Muslims to Nazis in a Facebook post.
It seems like Schilling has been daring ESPN to fire him for quite some time and he finally got what he wanted.
