PROVIDENCE, R.I. (AP) — Former Boston Red Sox pitcher Curt Schilling is firing back at cyberbullies who posted offensive comments about his daughter on Twitter.

Schilling congratulated his daughter on Twitter last week after she was accepted into Salve Regina University, where she’ll play softball next year.

Multiple people posted vulgar and sexually explicit comments about her.

Schilling wrote on his blog Sunday the ignorance and lack of morals and integrity are astounding. He reposted Tweets and has identified some of the people responsible. He says it’s never OK for a man to talk about a woman like that and it’s time for it to stop.

Schilling also played for the Philadelphia Phillies and the Arizona Diamondbacks. His video game company received a $75 million state loan guarantee in Rhode Island but went bankrupt, leaving taxpayers on the hook.Copyright 2015 The Associated Press. All rights reserved.
