The image was deleted Monday, but not before USA Today was able to capture screen shots. Schilling had previously been suspended by ESPN after tweeting a picture comparing ISIS to Nazi Germany in August. (RELATED: MLB Analyst Curt Schilling Compares Muslims To Nazis On Twitter)

Carson has been under fire for saying he wouldn’t support a Muslim for president. Since making the comments, Carson has refused to back down. (RELATED: Ben Carson Doubles Down On Muslim In The White House Comments)

Neither Schilling nor ESPN has acknowledged the picture he posted on Facebook, but according to USA Today, Schilling’s suspension will come to an end once the MLB playoffs begin.
