ESPN Suspended Curt Schilling For Remainder of MLB Season


ESPN has suspended analyst Curt Schilling for the remainder of the MLB season. Here’s the statement via ESPN PR.

"Update – ESPN Statement on Curt Schilling: “At all times during the course of their engagement with us, our commentators are directly linked to ESPN and are the face of our brand. We are a sports media company. Curt’s actions have not been consistent with his contractual obligations nor have they been professionally handled; they have obviously not reflected well on the company. As a result, he will not appear on ESPN through the remainder of the regular season and our Wild Card playoff game.”"

Curt Schilling went from social media hero to social media zero, retweeting a Muslims as Nazis meme. He then tried to defend himself at length via email.

This seems an opportune time to remind the world Keith Law’s social media suspension was asinine.
