He also said that since ESPN fired Curt Schilling for a Facebook post supporting North Carolina's transgender bathroom ban, they also have to fire Hill for her social media behavior. "This is done. This is conversation over yanking my ... bye". Baldwin was right about that. It's a good lesson to take with you.

Baldwin later tweeted that she was still in disbelief over the segment, pointing out that this was never okay.
