Opie And Anthony Host Fired After Racist Twitter Rant
Longtime shock jock Anthony Cumia has been fired from his “Opie & Anthony” radio gig after unleashing a racially charged Twitter rant on Tuesday.
SiriusXM made the decision to release Cumia after he took to the social media website to vent about a run in he had with a black woman in Times Square.
The 53-year-old satellite radio host claims that the woman repeatedly punched him early Tuesday after he had taken some pictures with her in the frame.
The company released a statement that read:
“SiriusXM has terminated its relationship with Anthony Cumia of the Opie & Anthonychannel. The decision was made, and Cumia informed, late Thursday, July 3, after careful consideration of his racially charged and hate-filled remarks on social media. Those remarks and postings are abhorrent to SiriusXM, and his behavior is wholly inconsistent with what SiriusXM represents.”
After receiving his pink slip, Cumina doubled-down on his comments:
“Sirius decided to cave and fire me. Welcome to bizarro world…” he tweeted Friday morning.
“After the weekend, I’ll have a better idea of things. F*** Sirius.”
Despite calling the woman a “pig” and a “savage violent animal,” Cumia has previously said he isn’t in the wrong.
“My posts on Twitter after I was assaulted were profanity laced indeed but racist? Nope. Why should I afford my attacker any courtesy. Insane,” he tweeted.
Truth is, Anthony could have called that woman everything but the child of God, no one really would have cared. Hell, most people would have understood, considering the circumstances, but there was absolutely no need to bring race into the rant.
That said, someone will hire this azzhole to spew his bullisht across their frequency eventually. You know how that white privilege goes…
