The Disney-owned sports network ESPN fired baseball analyst Curt Schilling Wednesday night after he issued stern criticism of the backlash stemming from the passage of North Carolina's transgender bathroom law on Facebook earlier in the week.
Schilling, a three-time World Series-winning pitcher and formerly one of ESPN's in-game color commentators, shared a meme on Facebook that showed a creepy-looking middle aged man wearing a blonde wig and provocative women's clothing along with a caption that reads: "Let Him In! to the restroom with your daughter, or else you are a narrow minded, unloving racist bigot who needs to die!!!"
Schilling also wrote in the comment section below the meme that reads: "A man is a man no matter what they call themselves. 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!" more >>
