BALTIMORE (WJZ) — Former ESPN analyst Curt Schilling, who now works for Breitbart News Network, does not believe Orioles outfielder Adam Jones was telling the truth about the racial taunts he received in Boston at Fenway Park.
Jones spoke to the media on Tuesday and said he received racial taunts during the game at Fenway Park and had a bag of peanuts thrown at him.
Schilling, a former Phillies pitcher, said on his webcast via Yahoo Sports, “I don’t believe the story, given the world we live in.” He continued to say, “Everybody is starving and hungry to sit in front of a camera and talk and be social justice warriors.”
Schilling claims, “If a fan yelled loud enough in center field for Adam Jones to hear the N-word, I guarantee you we would’ve heard and seen fans around on CNN on MSNBC,” but the Red Sox team president Sam Kennedy confirmed there were 34 fans ejected from Monday’s game at Fenway, which was higher than usual.
The team even banned a fan for using a racial slur in a separate incident the next night.
