Curt Schilling, ESPN analyst, former professional baseball pitcher for the Boston Red Sox, and horrific human being, is not apologizing for the offensive and disgusting meme he posted online.
Earlier this week, Schilling posted an appalling meme on Facebook essentially making fun of transgender people and today, he went on to defend his actions.
The original picture shows an overweight, inappropriately dressed man in a wig and minimal clothing with the quote: “Let Him In! To the restroom with your daughter or else you’re a narrow minded, judgmental, unloving, racist bigot who needs to die!”
In response to the uproar his picture caused, Schilling wrote a blog post calling those upset over the picture “dense” and “gutless cowards.”
“This latest brew ha ha is beyond hilarious,” he wrote of the outcry that flooded the Internet after he shared the meme on Monday. “I didn’t post that ugly looking picture. I made a comment about the basic functionality of men’s and women’s restrooms, period.”
“A man is a man no matter what they call themselves,” he commented on the meme controversy. “I don’t care what they are, who they sleep with, men’s room was designed for the penis, women’s not so much. Now you need laws telling us differently? Pathetic.”
He has since deleted his post.
ESPN has come out saying that they are investigating this situation and will determine if they will take any actions. “We are taking this matter very seriously and are in the process of reviewing it,” said the network.
Last year, Schilling got in deep water for sharing a meme that compared Muslims to Nazis. As a result, he was suspended. At the time, he issued a statements saying: “I understand and accept my suspension. 100% my fault. Bad choices have bad consequences and this was a bad decision in every way on my part.”
Seems like he didn’t learn his lesson.
