    ESPN has pulled Curt Schilling from the air after the former Red Sox and Phillies star posted a photo comparing Muslim extremists to Nazis on his social media accounts.

    The photos, posted Tuesday, were deleted and Schilling apologized. ESPN announced that the company has removed Schilling as a broadcaster for the Little League World Series "pending further consideration.”

    "Curt's tweet was completely unacceptable, and in no way represents our company's perspective," ESPN said in a statement.

    Schilling issued an apology on Twitter, saying he understands his suspension and that the situation is "100% my fault." 

     

     He has also apologized to some online commenters individually.
