He puts the chilling in Schilling.
Former Boston Red Sox star Curt Schilling claims his insurance company dropped him — and he believes it’s because of his far right politics.
“We will be just fine, but wanted to let Americans know that AIG insurance canceled our insurance due to my ‘Social Media profile,’” the right-handed hurler tweeted Tuesday.
Conservative media outlet The Blaze reports that Schilling had what appeared to be a screenshot of a correspondence with an AIG representative who allegedly told him “it was a management decision that was made collectively between underwriting and marketing teams that could not be overturned.”
That message also indicated Schilling had been with AIG since 2004 and was in good standing. AIG has not responded to a Daily News request for comment.
Schilling is a hardcore Trump loyalist who has tweeted repeatedly that “true evil is winning” as President-elect Joe Biden’s inauguration draws near. He has also asked followers “how long do we let it” and “what’s our next step” in the days following last week’s deadly riots at the U.S. Capitol, which left five people dead including a Capitol Hill police officer.

The 54-year-old former hurler also speaks of “the coming storm.”
AIG denounced last week’s riots and announced the company was suspending all PAC activity.
“We were appalled by the acts of violence in the Capitol last week and attempts to interfere with the constitutionally mandated counting of electoral votes, by both the insurgents and elected officials,” a statement from the company said. “This blatant disregard for the rule of law and flagrant attempt to derail the democratic process in the U.S. must be treated with the seriousness it deserves.”

AIG blamed a “failure in leadership” for the chaos and said it was “troubling” to compare the federal government’s handling of right-wing insurgents that stormed the Capitol in comparison with the “aggressive treatment of peaceful protesters in D.C. last June.”
Schilling, who was fired from ESPN in 2016 following tweets critical of Muslims and transgender people, says that he doesn’t question AIG’s right to do business with whomever it pleases.
“To be very clear, it’s their right as a privately owned and run business,” he tweeted. “We do NOT need Gov’t in the private sector. This was merely a public notice to folks out there who might look at AIG insurance differently knowing they politically profile clients.”
Schilling, one of the best pitchers to have played Major League Baseball, is not in the league’s Fall of Fame. He also believes that’s a condemnation on his conservative worldview.©2021 New York Daily News. Visit at nydailynews.com. Distributed by Tribune Content Agency, LLC.
