Curt Shilling fired by ESPN for sharing anti-transgender meme

Curt Schilling fired by ESPN

Curt Schilling has been fired from his post as an ESPN Major League Baseball analyst, the network announced on Wednesday night.

Schilling’s termination comes after the former pitcher shared an anti-transgender meme on his Facebook page on Tuesday.

 “ESPN is an inclusive company. Curt Schilling has been advised that his conduct was unacceptable and his employment with ESPN has been terminated,” the network said in a statement.

Schilling’s anti-transgender meme was first reported by Bleacher Report.

He has since deleted the photo, which showed a man in ripped women’s clothes under a caption that reads: “Let him in to the restroom with your daughter or else you’re a narrow minded, judgmental, unloving, racist bigot who needs to die!”

Following his decision to post the meme, Curt Shilling wrote in a blog post about the incident.

“This latest brew ha ha is beyond hilarious,” Schilling wrote. “I didn’t post that ugly looking picture. I made a comment about the basic functionality of mens and womens restrooms, period.”

Schilling is known for his outspoken political comments and stances. In August ESPN suspended Schilling while he was covering the Little League World Series. During that incident he posted a meme that compared Muslims and Nazis.

Schilling also came under fire last month after he made some controversial comments about Democratic frontrunner Hillary Clinton.
