Yesterday, ESPN suspended Curt Schilling and removed him from the broadcast crew for the 2015 Little League World Series for retweeting a photo of Hitler bearing the caption, “It is said only 5-10% of Muslims are extremists. In 1940, only 7% of Germans were Nazis. How’d that go?” Schilling added the comment, “The math is staggering when you get to the #’s.”
After initially defending the post, Schilling changed his tune but it was too late. ESPN suspended him almost immediately and issued the following statement:
Curt’s tweet was completely unacceptable, and in no way represents our company’s perspective. We made that point very strongly to Curt and have removed him from his current Little League assignment pending further consideration.
