Curt Schilling Loves This ‘Awesome’ T-Shirt Calling for Lynching Journalists (UPDATE)

screen-shot-2016-11-07-at-7-49-49-pmFormer Major League Baseball pitcher and Breitbart radio host Curt Schilling shared a picture on his Twitter account Monday of a t-shirt calling for journalists to be lynched.

“Ok, so much awesome here…” Schilling said in the tweet, with the image of a shirt reading “Rope. Tree. Journalist. Some Assembly Required.”

After receiving criticism from no less than ten journalists, Schilling responded to each one individually with a video of a comedy routine mocking political correctness. He then shifted tactics, insisting that the tweet was “sarcastic” and asking why his critics weren’t talking about Benghazi.

UPDATE –– 10:32 pm ET: Schilling has since taken the tweet down. You can still see it screengrabbed above.
