In the biggest case of about fucking time in history, ESPN has terminated it’s employment of Curt Schilling after his latest round of bigoted, ignorant comments.
Schilling, through a spokesman declined to comment, something he should have done oh, I don’t know about a million times by now.
“To be in a place where people actually believe I’m a racist or I’m transphobic says to me that something has gone horribly askew somewhere,” he told the hosts on WEEI, sounding weary and bewildered by his latest social media furor.
On his personal blog on Tuesday, Schilling did not back down, even as advocates in the transgender community called for his dismissal.
“Let’s make one thing clear right upfront,” he wrote. “If you get offended by ANYTHING in this post, that’s your fault, all yours.” He added: “This latest brew ha ha is beyond hilarious. I didn’t post that ugly picture. I made a comment about the basic functionality of men’s and women’s restrooms, period.”
The linked article details Schillings MULTIPLE offenses over the past few years. I won’t bother to dignify his bullshit views any further by reprinting them over and over again, but let’s just say there pretty much isn’t anyone he doesn’t seem to hate. Except rich white men apparently. Thankfully we can all move on and actually be able to turn on a ballgame without fear of immediately vomiting at the sight of this horrendous pig.
H/T to Prof for the tip.
Deadspin has a pretty good take on the firing, including a detailed chronicle of all things Curt.
