Curt Schilling Calls ESPN's Stephen A. Smith "Racist"

Curt Schilling and Stephen A. Smith.

Curt Schilling will not be debating Stephen A. Smith. 

A couple of days after the ESPN personality bashed the former Boston Red Sox pitcher, Schilling, who was fired by ESPN, has responded. 

Speaking to WEEI's Dennis & Callahan, Schilling called Smith a "racist" and a "bigot" and said he won't be wasting his time with him. 

From WEEI:

“What am I going to debate about? I have no interest,” Schilling said this week on WEEI’s “Dennis and Callahan.” “I’m 49 years old. I have had cancer, I’ve had a heart attack, I’m losing my hair. I’m not going to waste my time with people I don’t respect. I don’t respect him. I think he’s a racist, I think he’s a bigot,” Schilling added of Smith. “There’s nothing to debate, No. 1., and No. 2, there’s not a chance in hell that I would do anything that would bring that station another viewer, ever.”

It's obviously fine for Schilling to not want to debate Smith, but to back out and then insult him with pretty damning terms like "racist" and "bigot" probably isn't the best look. 

The world doesn't need to hear these two trying to out-hot take each other, anyway, at least.
