Moral of the story: If you work for ESPN and hold a potentially controversial opinion, making sure it’s offensive to the right instead of the left will dramatically decrease your chance of getting fired:

Curt Schilling, an ESPN Major League Baseball analyst, has been terminated by ESPN, the network announced on Wednesday night.

Schilling’s termination comes after the former pitcher shared an anti-transgender meme on his Facebook page Tuesday.

“ESPN is an inclusive company. Curt Schilling has been advised that his conduct was unacceptable and his employment with ESPN has been terminated,” the network said in a statement.
[…]
Schilling has since deleted the image which had a man in ripped women’s clothes under a caption that read: “Let him in to the restroom with your daughter or else you’re a narrow minded, judgmental, unloving, racist bigot who needs to die!”

Maybe ESPN didn’t want to blow any shot they had at getting Bruce Springsteen or Bryan Adams to perform at their annual company party.

Meanwhile, ESPN has proven that there can be exceptions to their “inclusiveness” policy from time to time:

“Friends in High Places” rules apply at ESPN, but your mileage may vary.
