Former World Series champion pitcher Curt Schilling said Tuesday that his insurance company AIG canceled his plan because of his social media posts, which have recently praised President Donald Trump.
“We will be just fine, but wanted to let Americans know that @AIGinsurance canceled our insurance due to my ‘Social Media profile,'” Schilling tweeted Tuesday.
“PLEASE understand that this is and will in no way be a ‘one off,'” he tweeted, replying to an unconvinced user. “This is the coming storm, this is the ‘future’ of the nation if we allow Demokkkrats the power they fraudulently came into. At their core, this is exactly who they are. Power and control, then FU.”
Since retiring from Major League Baseball (MLB), the former pitcher has become a pro-Trump voice on social media. Schilling, who right now goes by “President Elect Curt Schilling” on Twitter, is currently a commentator at BlazeTV and has contributed to Breitbart.
When another Twitter user cast doubt on Schilling’s statement, he replied to her with a screenshot from his correspondence with AIG.
“Cut out personal information and kept the relevant part readable. But ya, it’s real and I don’t imagine it’s even close to what we will witness in the coming months, years, if we let the Nazi’s win and the fraud is allowed to stand,” Schilling tweeted.
He responded to another user by explaining that he has very little incentive to fabricate his story.
“If it’s true?” Schilling wrote. “First off why would I lie about some bulls–t like this and second? You don’t think they’d be lining up lawyers to sue for defamation/slander/libel RIGHT NOW if I was lying? Hell, I tagged them in the tweet.”
On January 6 before midnight, Schilling tweeted his thoughts about that day’s deadly pro-Trump Capitol riot, expressing his support for the rioters. While he didn’t indicate which post he thought pushed AIG to cancel his plan, some reports say this January 6 tweet may have been the one.
“You cowards sat on your hands, did nothing while liberal trash looted rioted and burned for air Jordan’s and big screens, sit back, stfu, and watch folks start a confrontation for s–t that matters like rights, democracy and the end of govt corruption. #itshappening,” Schilling tweeted.
Over the course of his MLB career, Schilling pitched for the Philadelphia Phillies, Arizona Diamondbacks, and Boston Red Sox—winning the World Series three times.
