Former MLB Star Curt Schilling Deletes Twitter After Comparing NASCAR Driver Bubba Wallace To Jussie Smollett

Former MLB star Curt Schilling has never been one to hide his super-conservative political opinions and hot takes.

But this time around, well, it appears the firestorm has gotten to hot — because the ex-pitcher deactivated his Twitter account not long after comparing NASCAR driver Bubba Wallace to Jussie Smollett.

Referencing Smollett’s infamously dubious claim of a racist attack against him in Chicago, Schilling tweeted that Wallace was “v 2.0” of Smollett in regards to the alleged noose incident at a NASCAR track garage this past week. Schilling further asked whether the media would be “recanting their idiocy” before eventually deleting his account altogether. Ooooookay…

As you’ll recall, Wallace’s no. 43 race car team claimed to have found a noose hanging from their track garage at Talladega Superspeedway in Alabama several days ago. The FBI investigated the incident, and discovered a garage pull string had been fashioned in a knot similar to a noose, though it’d apparently been that way for several months before Wallace and his crew used the track.

To Schilling, then, it would appear that FBI finding and Smollett’s alleged hoax are somehow parallel events, or something. It doesn’t really matter now, considering the Blaze TV commentator is now off Twitter for good — at least for the time being. We’ll see how long it is before the former baseball pitcher finds himself back on the site and tweeting away once again…
