A man wore a shirt threatening violence to the media at a Donald Trump rally over the weekend in Minnesota, and former All-Star pitcher Curt Schilling saw it fit to applaud the apparel in a tweet on Monday.

"OK, so much awesome here...," Schilling wrote in a since-deleted tweet, which featured a photo of a man in a shirt that read "Rope. Tree. Journalist. Some assembly required."

Until April the former World Series hero was a member of the media as an MLB analyst with ESPN. He lost that job after a series of insensitive social media posts like the one above.

Schilling, who has said he's considering running for a Senate seat in Massachusetts in 2018, received a ton of backlash on Twitter following the post. He responded by saying it was "100% sarcasm" and repeatedly asked if the shirt was as offensive as Benghazi.

"We've removed the items in question," the company said in a statement to The Hollywood Reporter. "Thank you for raising the issue. Zazzle is a marketplace so we rely on our community to maintain an open dialogue with us — thank you again for alerting us to these offensive items."

Schilling said he saw nothing wrong with the tweet and hadn't deleted the post as of Monday evening.

Fellow retired Major League pitcher Dan Haren had some fun with Schilling's remarks afterward.
