ESPN Suspended Curt Schilling For Remainder of MLB Season

By Ty Duffy

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.
