Former baseball great Curt Schilling was suspended from ESPN sport network after he tweeted a message that equated Muslims to Nazis.

“Curt’s tweet was completely unacceptable, and in no way represents our company’s perspective,” the ESPN network said in a statement.

“We made that point very strongly to Curt and have removed him from his current Little League World Series assignment pending further consideration,” it added.

On August 25, Schilling posted a photo of Adolf Hitler on Twitter that read: “It’s said only 5-10% of Muslims are extremists. In 1940, only 7% of Germans were Nazis. How’d that go?”

Above the photo, he wrote: “The math is staggering when you get to true #s”).”

The tweet was later deleted.

Schilling has been suspended by ESPN for the rest of the regular season and the Wild Card round of the playoffs because of a recent tweet.

“I understand and accept my suspension. 100% my fault. Bad choices have bad consequences and this was a bad decision in every way on my part,” Schilling said on Twitter.

“I got suspended because the rules of the company I work for I broke,” Schilling said in an interview last month.

“I don’t have a problem with that. It wasn’t the content, it was the act. I’m not racist. I don’t have a racist bone in my body. That’s not who I am.”

“It’s part of what in a sense of what they hired me for, is what I got suspended for,” he added.
