Former All-Star MLB pitcher and current ESPN analyst Curt Schilling has a history of being brash on social media. But Tuesday, ESPN said he went too far.
Schilling has been stripped of his assignment covering the Little League World Series after tweeting out — and quickly deleting — an image comparing Muslims to Nazis. The now-deleted photo is captured here by Yahoo’s Nick Bromberg.
In a statement, ESPN called Schilling’s tweet “unacceptable,” adding, “We made that point very strongly to Curt and have removed him from his current Little League assignment pending further consideration.”
