Curt Shilling Takes Revenge On Men Who Made Nasty Twitter Comments About His Daughter
Curt Schilling turned into a vengeful father Monday when he turned into a detective to protect his daughter. Schilling tracked down and publicly named a pair of young men who had been hiding behind social media aliases to post ugly comments about his daughter Gabby Schilling on Twitter.
The harassing Twitter comments started last week after Schilling had congratulated his daughter via Twitter on her recent acceptance to college, where she’ll be playing softball.
“Congrats to Gabby Schilling who will pitch for the Salve Regina Seahawks next year,” the proud father wrote on Wednesday.
In response to the congratulatory message there was a host of kind comments wishing her well and some lighthearted jabbing from fellow students about looking forward to dating his daughter. But among the happy jokes there where some unpleasant messages that were lewd and extremely gross.
“Tweets with the word rape, bloody underwear and pretty much every other vulgar and defiling word you could likely fathom began to follow,” Schilling wrote in his blog . “I was a jock my whole life. I played sports my whole life. Baseball since I was 5 until I retired at 41. I know clubhouses. I lived in a dorm. I get it. Guys will be guys. Guys will say dumb cr-p, often. But I can’t ever remember, drunk, in a clubhouse, with best friends, with anyone, ever speaking like this to someone,” he said.
Showing that actions have repercussions this protective daddy tracked down the identities of the two young men and published there information right below the screenshots of their lewd and offensive comments.
“The Sports Guru? Ya he’s a DJ named Adam Nagel (DJ is a bit strong since he’s on the air for 1 hour a week) on Brookdale Student Radio at Brookdale Community College,” Schilling fired back. “How do you think that place feels about this stud representing their school? You don’t think this isn’t going to be a nice compilation that will show up every single time this idiot is googled the rest of his life? What happens when a potential woman he’s after googles and reads this?”
“The other clown?” he added. “He’s VP of the Theta Xi fraternity at Montclair State University. I gotta believe if Theta Xi is cool with a VP of one of their chapters acting like this I’d prefer to have no one I know in it. Also, does anyone attending Montclair State University have a student handbook? If so can you pass it along because I am pretty sure there are about 90 violations in this idiots tweets.”
Since Schilling outted the two men, both boy’s Twitter accounts have been deleted and Brookdale Community College released a statement via Facebook saying the student involved had been suspended.
The former VP of the Theta Xi fraternity was later identified as Sean MacDonald, a graduate working part-time as a ticket seller for the New York Yankees. Once his identity became public, he was fired immediately.
