ESPN fires Curt Schilling after latest controversy
 By Mark Townsend

Curt Schilling, a former All-Star and World Series champion pitcher who transitioned into one of ESPN's highest-profile baseball analysts, was fired Wednesday, just two days after commenting on and promoting a controversial anti-transgender meme on his Facebook page.

The meme dealt with the controversial public restroom laws, which have been on ballots in states across the country throughout the past year and were most recently a topic in North Carolina. You can view the meme here.

Schilling immediately came under fire, but defended himself in a subsequent post on Tuesday. ESPN said it was looking into the matter initially, before coming to a decision and releasing this statement Wednesday.

ESPN is an inclusive company. Curt Schilling has been advised that his conduct was unacceptable and his employment with ESPN has been terminated.

According to Richard Sandomir of the New York Times, Schilling declined to comment publicly after Wednesday's announcement, but had continued his defense earlier in the day during a radio appearance in Boston.

    To be in a place where people actually believe Im a racist or Im transphobic says to me that something has gone horribly askew somewhere, he told the hosts on WEEI, sounding weary and bewildered by his latest social media furor.

    Schilling told WEEI: I replied to the post. I didnt post that.

This is far from the first controversy Schilling has been involved in as pertains to sharing his political views on social media and elsewhere. Last August, he was suspended for one month and ultimately removed from his spot on Sunday Night Baseball after posting on Twitter that compared radical Muslims to Nazis.

To the surprise of many, Schilling was brought back to serve as a postseason analyst before being added to the Monday Night Baseball broadcast team and the Baseball Tonight cast this season. Less surprising was the fact that Schilling maintained his outspoken ways and continued ruffling feathers right up until his final moments under ESPN's employ.

Schilling had been with ESPN since 2010, serving in a variety of different roles. Now we'll see where his life and career will take him, because everyone is well aware of the reputation that precedes him.

But Dave Chappelle can go on a rant about Bruce Jenner right in front of Kylie Jenner and gets a pass. Matter of fact he was pretty much lauded for it. Nice double standard.

Yeah because comparing the persecution of Christians in the Middle East by ISIS to the treatment of the Jews in Germany is inexcusable.

ESPN has been real anal lately...

Schilling knew he was on thin ice and everything he did would be watched very carefully.  true, he only responded but, the suits were just waiting to break him off

when did Chappelle start working for ESPN?

Allright, I thought you dumbasses didn't need this drawn out in crayon for you but I guess that was asking too much.

Curt Schilling got whacked because he put a meme about transgendered people on his Facebook page.

Dave Chappelle made some pretty rude and crude remarks about Bruce/Cait Jenner (a transgendered person) on his show, with Kylie Jenner right there in front of him, and not a damn thing will happen to him.

You get it now?

Doesn't Dave Chappelle work for the Comedy channel?

I think they probably have different standards.
