ESPN PUNDIT: Suspended After Tweeting THIS Picture About Muslims and Nazis

The social media mob strikes again. Churt Schilling has been sidelined by ESPN after posting this picture about Muslims extremists.

Former baseball great-turned-ESPN analyst Curt Schilling posted, and then deleted, an incendiary meme on Twitter this morning comparing Muslim extremists to Nazis.

The image, which featured a photo of Adolf Hitler, carried the following text: ‘It’s said ONLY 5-10% of Muslims are Extremists. In 1940, ONLY 7% of Germans were Nazis. How’d that go?’

Schilling, an outspoken former pitcher for the Boston Red Sox and the Philadelphia Phillies known for sharing over-the-top content on social media, commented: ‘the math is staggering when you get to the true #’s.’

The overwhelming backlash prompted Schilling to take down the post just a few minutes later, but the damage has already been done.

ESPN released a statement soon after blasting Schilling’s ill-conceived tweet as ‘unacceptable’ and not representative of the network’s ‘perspective.’

Besides getting a verbal tongue-lashing from his employer, Schilling was also immediately sidelined from covering the Little League World Series ‘pending further consideration.’
