Anthony Cumia Responds To Being Fired By SiriusXM Over Racist Twitter Rant

(AllHipHop News) Anthony Cumia does not think he was being racist for questioning the effectiveness of the Civil Rights Act of 1964 in connection to being allegedly assaulted by an African American woman. SiriusXM did not care and fired him for his public tweets which made racially-charged and demeaning claims.

The former co-host of Opie & Anthony was given his walking papers by SiriusXM on Independence Day (July 4th), a day after publicly releasing racially charged comments on his personal Twitter account. In a statement, SiriusXM found Cumia’s “hate-filled remarks” to be “abhorrent to SiriusXM, and his behavior is wholly inconsistent with what SiriusXM represents.”

Recently rumors have surfaced that SiriusXM is offering months of subscription service for free due to rumored decreases in subscription numbers  as a result of Cumia’s firing. Cumia not only addressed this allegation but also attempted to explain his racist comments:

Cumia’s former Opie & Anthony co-host Greg “Opie” Hughes responded to his former colleagues’ comments and stated that him and Opie & Anthony co-host Jim Norton are meeting to decide on the show’s future:

    • Knickfan4life

      Racism is corny and stupid and not worth giving fools the time of days

    • Sounds like you been taking so much of Chuck’s jizz up your @$$, you’re starting to sound white.

  • Markus

    If this fool doesn’t find his rant inappropriate then he’s not ready to understand. Being assaulted in 2014 then thinking aloud about the events of 1964 pertaining to civil rights is completely stupid. Who cares if your friend cancels Sirius? Just update your resume and go away.

      I like Mel Gibsons racist line a lot better lol….Atleast that was clever and original

      “And if you get raped by a pack of niggers it will be your fault.”-Mel to his Girlfriend because she was dressing like a whore….

      Lol that line is gold….Even MLK would have laughed at it.

      Anthony Cumia is definitely a racist, but that doesn’t mean he’s never right on Black issues…..

    Personally I don’t like what he said, I don’t like his show and I am a proud African American and I am canceling Sirrus

    • Why? They fired him.

    • AlbertoRipRon

      Do you not know that almost 90 percent of products you buy on the reg is sold to you by corporations who hate the color of your skin? From your whip, to your shoes and even to this Disqus we use, I’m willing to bet there are people behind it who hate your black ass. No diss.

      So I wouldn’t think about it shorty. Just don’t listen to the show

      • Sharon Brown

        Who care if his friend cancel Sirrus, so can I. Personally I don’t drive a whip lol. I think that is like a car lol. I would hope that he would not use a rant about something like Civil Rights and try and justify why he got his behind beat by one black woman in the middle of the night and no one would help him. Well I guess in the middle of New York on that particular he was just another person that night that said something out of place and he paid for and tried to go on Twitter and rant about and it cost him his job. Oh my what a after thought!! Though luck!

  • Marcos From Yonkers

    I’m sorry but I don’t see anything racist about what he tweeted. They acted like animals and they behaved like savages. If your black and you feel that was directed towards you then you know what. If the show fits then wear it. But those words could have been used for any race. ITS NOT THE COLOR OF YOUR SKIN. ITS YOUR BEHAVIOR !!!!!

    • FunnyFaceKing

      why are you sorry?

  • Killuminati

    Everybody is racist in one way or another…..

  • FunnyFaceKing

    Me will be back listening to the radio on Monday too. Baba Booey!

  • Paul Ski

    I like how “his remarks and behavior are inconsistent with what SiriusXM represents” but the Shade 45 page on Sirius’ website promotes: “all things improper, immoral, and inappropriate.”

    Nope, no hypocrisy there!
