‘Kiss My Ass’: Schilling Says Deleted Tweet Suggesting Journalists Be Lynched Was a ‘Joke’

screen-shot-2016-11-08-at-3-02-46-pmCurt Schilling says it was a joke when he said a shirt about lynching journalists was “awesome,” and that people who couldn’t tell he was being sarcastic can “kiss [his] ass.”

The Former Major League pitcher and current Breitbart radio host posted a picture last night of a shirt that a Donald Trump supporter wore at one of the mogul’s rallies. The shirt read “Rope. Tree. Journalist. Some Assembly Required,” and Schilling eventually deleted his complimentary tweet after receiving a great deal of blowback.

TMZ Sports asking Schilling about the outage today, and he defended himself by saying that his tweet was a commentary on the media’s lack of impartiality. Schilling also smacked “safe-space liberals” for getting so worked up over a “hilarious” shirt and for believing he was really pro-lynching.

After bashing the media for being blatantly anti-Trump, Schilling was asked for what he’d like to tell people who thought he was being serious.

“Shut up, kiss my ass, and move on,” Schilling responded.
