SiriusXM has fired Anthony Cumia, one half of comedy show, “The Opie & Anthony Show,” after a racist tirade on Twitter after he got a beatdown from a black woman in New York City.

Cumia claims he was assaulted by a woman in Times Square on Tuesday. His racist tirade on his Twitter feed is just despicable. He said he was trying to take pictures of the area when the woman was caught in the fram. She allegedly started punching him after objecting to being in the photographs. He responded by calling her a c**t. He then took to Twitter and raged violently for hours.

During his Twitter rant, Anthony Cumia says “savage violent animal f*cks prey on white people.”

Here are a few of Anthony Cumia’s tweets that got him fired:

Sirius issued a statement confirming Anthony Cumia’s termination:

“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 also tweeted “I hope she gets shot,” has since posted a message saying he plans to think things over during the holiday weekend before signing off with “F— Sirius.”
