ESPN baseball analyst and close-minded bigot Curt Schilling is refusing to apologize (or back down at all) after posting anti-transgender images and comments on Facebook on Monday.
And in a gutless, cowardly move, Schilling deleted the offensive posts and then lied about them, saying they were "something that never actually happened". (You can view the offensive posts here.) If the former Red Sox pitcher believed he had nothing to apologize for, he would have kept the post visible. So much for standing up for what you believe in.
There is no word whether ESPN - which OutSports says has been "very out-front on LGBT issues" - will suspend or fire Schilling, who was suspended by the network last year after comparing Muslims to Nazis.
