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.

BREAKING: Trump ordered to pay over $350M, barred from operating his business in NY in civil fraud case ruling
Former President Donald Trump and his business empire faced a significant setback as a New York judge ruled against them in a civil fraud case brought by New York Attorney General Letitia James. The 92-page ruling, handed down by Judge Arthur Engoron, barred Trump from operating his business in New York for three years and imposed over $350 million in damages.
The case, which unfolded over months of trial proceedings, stemmed from allegations that Trump inflated his assets and engaged in fraudulent practices. Engoron’s ruling cited a litany of charges, including persistent fraud, falsifying records, issuing false financial statements, and conspiracy to commit fraud.
Moreover, the judge imposed restrictions on key figures within the Trump Organization, including Donald Trump Jr. and Eric Trump, barring them from serving in certain corporate roles in New York for a specified period.
Engoron’s scathing assessment of Trump’s testimony during the trial further undermined the former president’s credibility. The judge criticized Trump for evasive responses and irrelevant digressions, highlighting the detrimental effect on his credibility.
In response to the ruling, Trump’s attorney, Christopher Kise, lambasted the court’s decision, alleging political bias and a disregard for established legal principles. Kise argued that the evidence presented during the trial failed to support the allegations of fraud and emphasized Trump’s substantial net worth.
Kise’s assertions were echoed by Alina Habba, another attorney representing Trump, who denounced the verdict as a “manifest injustice” resulting from a politically motivated witch hunt.
Throughout the proceedings, Trump consistently dismissed the trial as politically motivated, accusing both Engoron and James of partisan bias. His legal team also criticized the absence of a jury in the trial, questioning the fairness of the proceedings.
Attorney General Letitia James, who spearheaded the lawsuit against Trump and his organization, portrayed the ruling as a victory for accountability and transparency in business practices. The lawsuit alleged fraudulent conduct and sought substantial financial penalties, a portion of which would contribute to the state treasury.
The fallout from the case extends beyond Trump and his business interests, with implications for the broader business community and the rule of law. The contentious nature of the trial and its outcome underscored deep divisions and raised questions about the integrity of the legal system.
Trump vows to appeal the decision.
