It all started with a seemingly innocent tweet from Curt Schilling.
Congrats to Gabby Schilling who will pitch for the Salve Regina Seahawks next year!!— Curt Schilling (@gehrig38) February 25, 2015
He's congratulating his daughter on working hard and pitching in college, but apparently some of the responses he received were less than polite.
Instead, she was the target of cyberbullying, even from some students attending Salve Regina, a small university in Newport, R.I.
He nailed the response, though.

Shockingly, @Stan_Dern is no longer an account on Twitter.
Schilling didn't take the comments well, and he sounded off on all of them.
@Kyle21Knoth i have many friends that are in or former special forces.....— Curt Schilling (@gehrig38) February 26, 2015
He explained his actions in a must-read blog post, and revealed some of the things sent to him and his daughter. And be warned, some of the messages are GRAPHIC.
This just proves again that no matter how great social media can be, it is also an awful place when people make it that way. Schilling, of course, has been in heated arguments on social media before. That's part of his personality, whether you think he's on the right or wrong side.
He's on the right side on this one, and his daughter thinks so, too.
@gehrig38 don't know what i would do without you, i love you so much!!— Gabby Schilling (@GabbyS_chilling) March 2, 2015
