A former star Major League baseball pitcher, who has been an analyst on ESPN since 2010, was suspended from covering the Little League World Series after sending a tweet, reports CNN.
Says the story, “Curt Schilling, a star pitcher who was in the Major Leagues for 20 years and a baseball analyst for ESPN, was suspended from his Little League World Series duty after sending a controversial tweet Tuesday.
“The tweet re-posted a meme that reads: ‘It’s said only 5-10% of Muslims are extremists. In 1940, only 7% of Germans were Nazis. How’d that go?’ The text was superimposed of a red-tinted photo of Adolf Hitler. Schilling added, ‘The math is staggering when you get to true #’s.’”
Later, after his suspension, Schilling sent this tweet, the story notes: “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.”
