The former Red Sox pitcher claims his insurance policy has been cancelled by AIG due to his “social media profile,” The Blaze reports.
We will be just fine, but wanted to let Americans know that @AIGinsurance canceled our insurance due to my "Social Media profile"
— President Elect Curt Schilling (@gehrig38) January 13, 2021
Schilling, an outspoken conservative and supporter of President Donald Trump said on Twitter, Tuesday, that his assertion is “real” and that it won’t be “even close to what we will witness in the coming months, years.”
His tweet also included a screenshot of what appears to be correspondence from an AIG representative.
The text states: “Unfortunately, the underwriter was unable to accept my request. I also went up the chain of … command and asked our AIG Marketing Representative for an exception, but unfortunately he was unable to grant one. He realized that you were a longtime AIG client since 2004 and also a profitable account (claims), but it was a management decision that was made collectively between underwriting and marketing teams that could not be overturned.”
After some followers questioned Schilling’s claims, he shot back, “If it’s true? First off why would I lie about some bulls**t 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 warned his insurance cancellation mirrors “the coming storm” in America under Democrats who want “power and control, then FU.”
When asked if his insurance being dropped is legal, Schilling replied, “Wooooooooo there, Hold up champ. ‘Legal,’ at least as I see it, is no longer a restraint on the left. The burning, looting, rioting, F the police, assault, all of that and the massive fraud. Hell the next time a Clinton does something legal will be the first. None in jail…”
According to The Blaze, Schilling posted a tweet the night of Jan. 6, saying, “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 s**t that matters like rights, democracy and the end of gov’t corruption.”
It’s still not clear if the tweet had anything to do with Schilling’s claim about AIG dropping his insurance, The Blaze reports.
