Three-time World Series champion pitcher Curt Schilling has always been publicly outspoken about his political viewpoints, and in the highly charged election season that took place in 2016, his political commentary cost him dearly. In April of 2016, Schilling posted an anti-transgender internet meme on his Facebook page. He attempted to play it off as political humor, saying that the media’s condemnation of it was “beyond hilarious,” but the network didn’t see the humor in it at all. He was fired shortly after that incident.
