On Tuesday afternoon, Craig wrote about a disgusting anti-transgender post former major leaguer Curt Schilling made on Facebook. Craig, as usual, correctly pointed out the many ways in which Schilling’s comment was wrong.
Schilling then wrote a blog post in which he doubled down on his Facebook post. He called it, “The hunt to be offended…” He said, “If you get offended by ANYTHING in this post, that’s your fault, all yours.” Schilling then adds, “I don’t represent anyone but myself here, on facebook, on twitter, anywhere,” which is just not correct, especially given how ESPN has reacted to his myriad faux pas.
Schilling addressed the controversy from last August in which he compared Muslims to Nazis. He tried to justify it by saying he used the term “Muslim extremist” as opposed to just Muslim. Then, about today’s furor over his latest Facebook post, he wrote, “This latest brew ha ha is beyond hilarious. I didn’t post that ugly looking picture. I made a comment about the basic functionality of mens and womens restrooms, period.”
He goes on, “YOU’RE the ones making it the issue. I don’t care, if you ask me about any of the topics it’s likely (much to the chagrin of many) I’ll answer with my opinion.”
It reads like a teenager trying to argue his way out of getting grounded by his or her parents. Guess we’ll have to wait and see how ESPN responds to this.
