Baseball star Curt Schilling has claimed his insurance policy was canceled by AIG after the Donald Trump fan tweeted in support of the Capitol rioters.
The Red Sox legend tweeted, “I’ll be fine, but wanted to let Americans know @AIGinsurance has canceled our insurance because of my” Social Media profile. ”
Schilling – who on Twitter calls “ President Elect Curt Schilling ” – had last week shared his views on the Capitol siege, saying the rioters were starting a “ showdown for sh * t that matters. ”
He tweeted: ‘You cowards sat on your hands, doing nothing while liberal looted and burned garbage for air Jordan’s and big screens, sit back, stfu, and watch people start a showdown for things that matter like rights, democracy and the end of government corruption. #it’s happening.’
After some followers questioned his claims about AIG on Tuesday, Schilling responded with a screenshot of his alleged correspondence with the company. He later said he was a ‘AAA customer with no claims in our 17 years with them’.
The screenshot read in part that canceling Schilling’s insurance plan was “ a management decision made collectively between the insurance and marketing teams that could not be reversed. ”
Repeating false claims that the 2020 presidential election was faked, Schilling wrote, “ Cut out personal information and keep the relevant section legible. But then again, it is real and I can’t imagine it even getting close to what we’ll see in the coming months, years, if we let the Nazis win and the fraud is allowed to continue. ‘
Schilling later added, ‘Please understand that this is not and will not be a’ one off ‘in any way. This is the coming storm, this is the ‘future’ of the nation if we allow Demokkkrats the power they have fraudulently entered. At the core, this is exactly who they are. Power and control, then FU. ‘
DailyMail.com has contacted AIG for comment on the claims.

A well-known Trump fan, Schilling has spent his career developing a conservative personality after playing. He is against gay marriage and has been hinting in politics for years. He’s also contributed to Breitbart and hosted a show for the right wing news outlet.
In August 2019, Trump even advocated for Schilling to run for Congress, although the former baseball player ultimately decided against it.
Schilling regularly tweets about conservative goals, and also tweeted about Georgia’s run-off last week.
He is currently standing up for the Baseball Hall of Fame after helping the Red Sox win the World Series in 2004 and 2007.

AIG said on Wednesday that it is “ suspending its limited PAC (Political Action Committee) activity for the foreseeable future. ”
They said: “We were shocked by the violence at the Capitol last week and the attempts to interfere with the constitutionally mandated electoral vote by both the insurgents and elected officials.
This blatant disregard for the rule of law and the blatant attempt to derail the democratic process in the US should be treated with the seriousness it deserves. The failures in leadership, including the federal government’s moderate response to those who stormed the Capitol last week, compared to the extensive preparation and aggressive treatment of peaceful protesters in Washington last June, are equally disturbing.
AIG has discontinued its limited PAC activity for the foreseeable future. Management also intends to review AIG’s relationships with trade associations to ensure that their respective policies are consistent with AIG’s values. ‘
The president endorsed Schilling to attend Congress in August 2019. He is pictured watching the MLB game between the San Francisco Giants and Arizona Diamondbacks at Chase Field on August 3, 2018 in Phoenix, Arizona.

Schilling has previously displayed a collection of World War II memorabilia Boston.com, including Nazi memorabilia.
In 2015, he shared a meme on his Twitter account comparing Muslims to Nazis, the first of several times he posted Islamophobic content on social media.
That same year, Schilling tweeted that ISIS was winning the democratic debate.
And in April 2016, Schilling posted an anti-transgender meme, which resulted in his resignation from ESPN.
Schilling clapped back a week later, saying ESPN employed “ some of the biggest racists in sports commentary. ”

Trump was impeached a historic second time by the US House on Wednesday, accused of “ inciting insurrection ” over the deadly siege of the US Capitol in a swift and stunning collapse of his final days in office.
Ten Republicans fled Trump and joined Democrats who said he should be held accountable and ominously warned of a “ clear and present danger ” if Congress failed to monitor him before Democrat Joe Biden’s inauguration on Jan. 20.
Trump is the only US president to have been impeached twice. It was the most bipartisan presidential impeachment in modern times, exceeding Bill Clinton in 1998.
A Capitol police officer died of the injuries sustained in the riot, and the police shot and killed a woman during the siege. Three other people died in medical emergencies. The riot delayed the electoral college’s vote, which was the final step in the completion of Biden’s victory.
The impeachment law is based on Trump’s own false statements about his election defeat against Biden.
Judges across the country, including some nominated by Trump, have repeatedly dismissed cases disputing the election results, and former Attorney General William Barr, an ally of Trump, has said there was no sign of widespread fraud.
