Curt Schilling to cyberbullies: “It truly is time this stopped”

Former baseball pitcher Curt Schilling  had some tough words for cyberbullies after he says multiple “vulgar and defiling” tweets were directed at his teenage daughter.

Earlier this week, Schilling posted a tweet congratulating his daughter on her acceptance to college.

In response, Schilling said in his blog, he and his daughter received violent, crude and vulgar messages.

My daughter comes to me beyond upset. She didn’t do anything, she never said anything, yet she’s now receiving personal messages with guys saying things to her, well let’s just say I can’t repeat and I’m getting beyond angry thinking about it.

In the post, Schilling calls out both the writers of the crude messages (some by name) and those who defend them.

These boys have yet to understand one of life’s most important lessons. In the real world you get held accountable for the things you say and if you are not careful that can mean some different things.

How on earth do you guys know who’s on the other end? What they’re thinking?

This is a generation of kids who have grown up behind the monitor and keyboard. The real world has consequences when you do and say things about others. We’re at a point now where you better be sure who you’re going after.

    Perfect response, I know if I got any sort of hint that one of my daughters was being verbally accosted like this, I am not sure I would have the same restraint. I would move heaven and Earth to protect my daughters. There will always be people that can’t or won’t ever have the ability to filter what come out of their brains. I am working with one of my daughters on that same thing right now. What you think doesn’t always need to be expressed verbally.
