Curt Schilling is not backing down.
The former professional baseballer (and would-be video game magnate) gave an interview to Breitbart News Daily on SiriusXM posted Friday defending his transphobic posts online, which recently cost him his job.
“I’m not transphobic. I’m not homophobic,” Schilling told Stephen K. Brannon.
The remarks come just two days after being fired from ESPN for posting a anti-transgender meme to his Facebook wall, and defending the grotesque image on his blog, saying, “If you get offended by ANYTHING in this post, that’s your fault, all yours.”
In the mean time, Schilling has not changed his tone on Facebook — recently reposting a meme that simultaneously defends him and re-airs accusations that liberal New York Daily News columnist Shaun King “fakes being a black man.”
