Curt Schilling, whose reputation has been tarnished during his career due to a series of controversies, has had another accident.
Last Wednesday (27th) local time, Schilling revealed the news of his teammate Tim Wakefield, who was with the Boston Red Sox, suffering from cancer through his podcast ‘The Kurt Schilling Baseball Show’.
“As a devout Christian, I’ve seen how prayer works and that’s why I want to talk about it,” he said, adding that Wakefield is battling brain cancer and recently underwent surgery.
The problem is that this was made public without Wakefield’s own consent. Schilling also acknowledged that it was released without the person’s permission, saying, “I’m not sure if he wants this to be shared.”
Health information, such as information about an individual’s illness, is sensitive personal information. Disclosure of such information without the patient’s consent can be a serious problem.
This is not another patient, the person involved was the best knuckleballer during his active career, and it is not another disease, but brain cancer. Of course, the impact is bound to grow.
The Red Sox team announced its position in a statement a day later on the 28th.
They said, “Unfortunately, this information was shared without the parties’ permission. “Their health issues are extremely personal, and they wanted to keep them confidential while seeking treatment to overcome this disease,” he said, expressing regret that their personal health information was disclosed without their permission.
He added, “Mr. and Mrs. Wakefield are grateful for the love and support they have received from their fans and have respectfully requested that their privacy be maintained at this time.”
Katherine, the wife of Jason Varitek, Schilling’s former teammate at Wakefield, tweeted “Fuck you Kurt Schilling” on the same day via her He posted an angry message saying, “That wasn’t where you were supposed to be!”메이저사이트
Schilling had a brilliant career, becoming an All-Star six times and winning three World Series during his career, but since his retirement, he has shown a severe right-leaning trend.
In 2015, when he was working as a commentator for ESPN, he caused controversy by posting a comment on Twitter criticizing Islam by comparing it to Nazis, and he was eventually forced to step down from his position as a commentator.
In 2021, when supporters of former President Donald Trump stormed into Congress, he supported it, causing controversy.
In the same year, when he failed to be inducted into the National Baseball Hall of Fame due to being 16 votes short of the 75% required for induction, he requested to be excluded as a candidate, causing controversy once again.
In the end, he failed to enter the Hall of Fame by exhausting all ten opportunities, with an approval rating of only 58.6% in 2022. He plans to seek entry through a vote by the senior council.
