ESPN has parted ways with outspoken baseball analyst Curt Schilling over controversial comments. The network says he posted on Facebook about transgender rights.
FOX's Gurnal Scott reports:
Schilling, whose pitching arm helped bring a World Series title to Boston, was let go after a post critical of laws in some states defining transgender rights and access.
He called statutes in states like North Carolina, that restrict bathroom access according to birth gender, "pathetic."
In a statement, ESPN management called their company "inclusive" and said Schilling's comments were "unacceptable."
Schilling's words have ruffled feathers at ESPN before, earning him a suspension last for comparing Muslim extremists to Nazis.
In a blog post, Schilling explained his candor saying, "I'm loud" and "I talk too much".
