Shock-jock Anthony Cumia of the Opie and Anthony radio show has been fired by SiriusXM radio after controversial remarks he made Tuesday on Twitter.

SiriusXM released a statement about cutting ties with Cumia:

SiriusXM has terminated its relationship with Anthony Cumia of the Opie & Anthony channel. 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.

Cumia, who had been hosting the radio show with Gregg “Opie” Hughes since 1995, claimed that his Twitter remarks were made after a black woman supposedly hit him repeatedly for capturing her in a picture.

“If I was an illegal savage I’d have shot her,” Cumia wrote in one of many tweets he sent regarding the incident.  “I hope she gets killed.”

“The automatic jump to violence in that community is astounding. No discussion. It’s start punching at the least little thing. Uncivilized!!”

“It’s really open season on white people in this day and age. No recourse. Fight back and you’re a racist. The predators know this. Good luck.”

The 53-year-old sent out more tweets on Friday morning addressing his termination.

“Sirius decided to cave and fire me. Welcome to bizarro world…” he tweeted.  “My posts on Twitter after I was assaulted were profanity laced indeed but racist? Nope. Why should I afford my attacker any courtesy. Insane.”

The incident with Cumia is reminiscent of the 2007 controversy involving Imus in the Morning radio host Don Imus.  Imus made derogatory remarks against the Rutgers University women’s basketball team, and his radio program was cancelled shortly after.  Imus had returned with a new radio show on ABC Radio and RFD-TV by December of the same year.

  1. In the 232 years of America’s existence there has only been 9 years when this Country wasn’t at War with another Nation. Other than when the Japanese attacked Pearl Harbor or 911. America and the dominant white society that controls is the most violent Nation on Earth.

    White People love to ignore 300 years of slavery. 100 years of Jim Crow and the lynchings and murder as a result of it and then trun around and call everyone raised in the same system, under the same rules as animals. It’s okay when you do it to other people but when they respond back it’s a problem.

    I once heard this same man a couple of years talk about rappers saying they stole everything by using sampling. But when anyone points out that every song by the Rolling Stones, the Doors or Led Zepplin was done by an old Black Man first in the Blues they pretend that the whites are just making it better.

    White people have this pathetic God Complex where they see everything they do as okay no matter how wrong it is but when someone else responds or acts in the same way, they all of a sudden want to pretend it’s different.

  2. I hope Anthony Cumia does not blow his top to kill his boss. Such racists are always angry with the world. Anthony Cumia says we Blacks are inclided for violence? Really! How about the kid who gunned down 26 children; How about the kid who gunned down movie goers, How about the kids who stabbed a girl in Wisconsin; how the California College kid who gunned down girls recently. These were not Black kids. They were White gunners. Violence can occur in every race.

  3. Hello our kids member! I want to declare that this text is awesome, pleasant created accessible having close to beneficial infos. I’m going to find far more blogposts in this way .

  4. Cant stand that crakka but he was right about blks being violent. Two year old shot in the head by a nucca. 6 month old baby shit five times by a nucca. Record # of kids under 18 shot by nuccas in the hood. Thugs drug dealers and killers is the new klan but yall wont deal with that.

  5. This gentleman is absolutely right in his statements. blacks are a violent species. All they know how to do is fight, shoot and kill. They lack the verbal qualifications needed to make an attempt to solve problems. They are savage beasts!!! They do not know any better. They are vicious animals with tiny brains. Worthless idiots. …and they wonder why prisons are overcrowded with negros. This man should be reinstated immediately. His rights have been violated. Death cannot come quick enough for this no good winch. (and her entire family as well) White America cannot stand being around any of you. When are you ever going to get that through your THICK MALFORMED SKULLS? All of you are nothing but dimwits. He probably would’ve been dead if he had taken her last piece of chicken wouldn’t he…

  6. @ Anastasia…you’re funny..here’s laughing AT you!

  7. He was slapped by a Black woman and blames the ENTIRE Black race for his incident. How immature is that? What would he have said if the person was white?

  8. Keep living and I bet we see more ignorance in people comments about race. This example is just one of many. Some americans, will always connect crime to the color of our skin. Some americans, will always connect crime to our race based off our class in this country. It isn't what they say that hurts, it is what they do. We are human. We bleed, sleep, hear, live, die, eat, pee, crap and cry, just like everyone else. Stop using us to blame when life treat you the way we have been treated all of our lives. It's not our fault. We do not impower the wealth or jobs in this country you seek.
