Former pitcher and ESPN Baseball analyst Curt Schilling is catching heat for a tweet that seemingly compares Muslims to Nazis.
Schilling, a known political conservative, tweeted Tuesday a meme of Adolf Hitler stating “It’s said only 5-10 percent of Muslims are Extremists. In 1940, only 7 percent of Germans were Nazis. How’d that go?”
According to the New York Daily News, Schilling also wrote above the post “The math is staggering when you get to true #’s”
The tweet was quickly deleted but that didn’t stop news of his actions from quickly spreading.
Of course, nothing disappears on the internet.
The response has been mostly ridicule.
So, I guess if you're looking for a job at ESPN, Curt Schilling's might be available pretty soon.

Probably one of the sternest responses posted and then deleted came from a Twitter user who replied “I have no respect left for Curt Schilling after seeing this. Comparing Muslims to Nazis is so far over the line.”
