Was ESPN Right in Suspending Curt Schilling? [POLL]
ESPN suspended Curt Schilling from the network after Schilling retweed a post about Nazis and Islamic extremists. According to the AP, ESPN found the tweet unacceptable.
Schilling retweeted a post that said, "Only 5-10% of Muslims are extremists. In 1940, only 7% of Germans were Nazis. How'd that go?" The post was soon removed from his Twitter feed.
The network said the tweet was unacceptable and that it "made that point very strongly to Curt." ESPN said Schilling was removed from the Little League World Series assignment "pending further consideration."
Schilling accepted the punishment, saying in a statement: "Bad choices have bad consequences and this was a bad decision in every way on my part."
