ESPN Might Have A Problem With Curt Schilling’s ‘ISIS’ Tweet During The Democratic Debate

On Tuesday night, Hillary Clinton, Bernie Sanders, Jim Webb, Lincoln Chafee and Martin O’Malley participated in the Democratic Presidential Debate. Noticeably absent from the stage was Joe Biden, who has yet to announce his candidacy.

Also absent was ISIS, a terrorist group wreaking havoc all over the world, specifically in Syria.

Take it away Curt Schilling, you comedian you.

Yes, that’s the same Curt Schilling who just returned from an ESPN suspension following an ugly tweet about muslims. For reference:

Schilling is certainly entitled to his opinion and even a few jokes here and there. No one is denying him that. But if history serves as any indicator, the tweet will land him in hot water with his employers, who probably aren’t as amused with his jokes.

This was what they said after the last incident:

“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,” ESPN said in a statement. “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.”
