Curt Schilling says AIG canceled his insurance policy over pro-Trump social media profile

World Series champion pitcher Curt Schilling says his insurance company canceled his plan due to his social media posts, which have recently praised President Trump.

“We will be just fine, but wanted to let Americans know that @AIGinsurance canceled our insurance due to my ‘Social Media profile,'” Schilling tweeted Tuesday while tagging the insurance company AIG.

Schilling responded to a skeptical Twitter user by posting a screenshot from his communication with the company.

“Cut out personal information and kept the relevant part readable,” Schilling tweeted. “But ya, it’s real and I don’t imagine it’s even close to what we will witness in the coming months, years, if we let the Nazi’s win and the fraud is allowed to stand.”

The former star pitcher responded to another Twitter user by explaining he has nothing to gain by making up the story.

“If it’s true?” Schilling wrote. “First off why would I lie about some bullshit like this and second? You don’t think they’d be lining up lawyers to sue for defamation/slander/libel RIGHT NOW if I was lying? Hell, I tagged them in the tweet.”

Schilling’s social media profile often expresses support for Trump, including posts last week that appeared to offer sympathy for the Trump supporters who stormed Capitol Hill.

“You cowards sat on your hands, did nothing while liberal trash looted rioted and burned for air Jordan’s and big screens, sit back, stfu, and watch folks start a confrontation for shit that matters like rights, democracy and the end of govt corruption,” Schilling tweeted on Jan. 6 with the hashtag “#itshappening.”

AIG did not immediately respond to a request for comment from the Washington Examiner.

Schilling won four World Series championships during his illustrious baseball career to go along with over 3,000 strikeouts and 200 wins. The Alaska native, who has been criticized by many in sports media over his vocal support for the president, is widely expected to be elected to baseball’s hall of fame in his ninth year of eligibility this year.
