Anthony Cumia, of the world famous Opie & Anthony Show, was the victim of a racial hate crime. Anthony says a young black woman, flanked by five black males, attacked him in Times Square while screaming “white motherf*ck*r.”
Anthony Cumia is famous for being a crude “shock jock” and using profanity. However, when he directed that profanity towards his black attacker on twitter, SiriusXM suddenly claimed he had gone to far.
A radio host for SiriusXM has been fired after he unleashed a shocking racist tirade on Twitter.
Anthony Cumia, one half of The Opie & Anthony Show, called a black woman a ‘c***’ and an ‘animal b****’ on Wednesday after claiming she punched him in the face as he took photos in Times Square.
On Friday, a spokesperson for SiriusXM said that the rant was ‘abhorrent’ and ‘wholly inconsistent with what SiriusXM represents’.
‘SiriusXM has terminated its relationship with Anthony Cumia of the Opie & Anthony channel,’ Patrick Reilly said. ‘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.’
Despite the latest development, the fouled-mouthed shock jock still showed no sign of remorse.
In another post, Cumia wrote: ‘There’s a deep seeded problem with violence in the black community. Try to address it and you’ll be exiled to racistville. But it’s real.’
When Twitter users asked why he didn’t press charges, he responded that there were no police officers around and that she said she would claim he had sexually harassed her if he reported it.
‘Lying c***,’ he wrote. ‘I hope she gets shot in her ass f*** face. Ugh.’
He added that there was no point taking it further with authorities because he was a white guy and she was a black girl.
‘It’s really open season on white people in this day and age,’ Cumia wrote. ‘No recourse. Fight back and you’re a racist. The predators know this. Good luck.’
As he posted his rant, he received mixed responses, with some people pointing out that she had mentioned the color of his skin, while others attacked him for being racist.
Predictably, he had no time for that.
‘I was assaulted and used “mean” words on Twitter and I’M the bad guy in all this?? Lol!’ he tweeted.
