A little background: Curt Schilling is a former pitcher (he played in six All-Star games, pitched for three World Series winners, and was a Series MVP) who tried entrepreneurship (the video game company he founded failed), and is a baseball analyst and announcer for ESPN. In short, high-profile.
Recently his daughter was accepted to Salve Regina University. Like many a proud father, Schilling shared his excitement with his Twitter followers.
Nothing wrong with that; if you can’t be proud of your kids, what can you be proud of?
You can also probably guess what happened. Some people tweeted things like, “Can’t wait to date her!” Others tweeted, “Looking forward to partying with her!”
But then it got ugly.
