Bullies Decide To Pick On Young Girl But find Out Her Dad Is Real-Life LEGEND

Bullies Decide To Pick On Young Girl But find Out Her Dad Is Real-Life LEGEND

There’s been a lot of social media attention paid to what a “real man” is these days. One thing a real man is, is a man who defends his teen daughter from the undeserved attacks of  some crude guys who are obviously NOT real men. Real men don’t attack a woman, online or anywhere else. And if they do, they had better be prepared to meet her Daddy in a very unpleasant way. Legendary pitcher Curt Schilling did not take the  social media attacks on his girl without firing back in a big way! Read on to see what he did about it.

According to the New York Daily News, back in February, Schilling had tweeted, “Congrats to Gabby Schilling who will pitch for the Salve Regina Seahawks next year!!”

While many others joined him in congratulating his 17-year-old daughter on being accepted to the Rhode Island college, a few took the opportunity to hit on her, and some even descended to posting crude vulgarities aimed at the young woman.

Schilling was having none of it though, and the proud father shifted into protective mode, saying, “As a father, besides providing for my family, what other job do I have? Loving my kids and protecting my family.”

Using publicly available information, Schilling was able to track down at least nine of the worst trolls, causing them to lose their jobs or be kicked off their athletic teams … “and we’re not done,” he added.

“Lost in all of this is, my daughter is 17. She’s a minor. And these guys are all adults. I’m pursuing legal recourse on a couple of them because they broke the law. What they did can have them labeled as a sex offender for the rest of their lives.”

Calling the men “gutless cowards,” he lamented the fact that such individuals hide behind their computers and smartphones and say things they otherwise wouldn’t even dream of saying to someone’s face.

Schilling also made it clear that he wasn’t so much interested in getting personal revenge, but in pushing back against online bullying that can lead some young people to despair and even suicide.

“This is not a pride thing, where it’s, ‘I’m going to show them.’ One of the defenses of people trying to defend these guys is, ‘You should know this is the world we live in now.’ And my response was, ‘No, it’s not. We can allow it to be that way, but it’s not.’ You want bad to be the norm, then do nothing,” Schilling said Monday night.

“Let me be very clear. I don’t know that I could put myself in a place where my daughter would take her life, but if that happened, I’m that father with nothing to lose. This was an attack on my family.”

A healthy father/daughter relationship is so important and Gabby Schilling is blessed with a wonderful protective Daddy. Cowards beware, any woman you attack may have one too. Curt Schilling has set the standard for dads everywhere with the way he took care of his daughter and went after the foul jerks who bullied her. What a great role model! Fatherhood is alive and well and prowling social media!
