The frat known as ESPN has extended the suspension of ex-MLB star and current ESPN broadcaster Curt Schilling for the rest of the baseball season.
Schilling was first suspended for sending a tweet that featured a meme comparing Muslim extremists to Nazis. Schilling quickly deleted the tweet and apologized, but ESPN still took him off that week's Sunday Night Baseball broadcast.
He was set to return, but then got into an email flap with the website Awful Announcing, which published the emails.
At that point, ESPN had enough and tacked on more time to Schilling suspension and released this statement:
“At all times during the course of their engagement with us, our commentators are directly linked to ESPN and are the face of our brand. We are a sports media company. Curt’s actions have not been consistent with his contractual obligations nor have they been professionally handled; they have obviously not reflected well on the company. As a result, he will not appear on ESPN through the remainder of the regular season and our Wild Card playoff game.”
