PROVIDENCE, R.I. (AP) — Former Red Sox pitcher Curt Schilling has called Rhode Island’s governor a “dunce of epic proportions” in the wake of his video gaming company’s collapse.

Schilling criticized Gov. Lincoln Chafee in a Saturday exchange on Twitter about the collapse of 38 Studios, which got a $75 million loan guarantee from the state in 2010.

Schilling tweeted that “if the state loses money it’s because the Governor is a dunce of epic proportions, nothing I can do about that.”

38 Studios filed for bankruptcy in June.

Schilling had earlier blamed Chafee for public comments he made about the firm’s solvency and accused the governor of having an “agenda.”

Schilling has conceded previously that he himself was “absolutely” part of the reason the company failed.

Chafee’s office had no immediate comment.
