MLB legend and baseball analyst Curt Schilling was fired by ESPN Wednesday night for his conservative views.

Schilling shared a meme on Facebook that clearly showed he was against transgender individuals using bathrooms against their biological sex. The legendary pitcher was fired over the post with ESPN saying, “Curt Schilling has been advised that his conduct was unacceptable and his employment with ESPN has been terminated,” according to the New York Times(RELATED: MLB Legend Curt Schilling Hammers Transgender Bathroom Policies In Social Media Post)

The former Red Sox pitcher has been very open about his conservative views in the past. He was previously suspended by ESPN for comparing ISIS to the Nazis. (RELATED: ESPN Shuts Down Curt Schilling For Conservative Views)

ESPN might have no problem getting rid of conservative pundits, but the network has tolerated extreme liberal positions in the past without firing anybody. ESPN employee Tony Kornheiser compared the Tea Party to ISIS and insinuated the Tea Party was attempting to “establish a caliphate.”

Kornheiser is still cashing pay checks from ESPN.
