Sirius Radio Heads Fire Anthony of "Opie and Anthony" Over Angry Tweets

Anthony Cumia of the radio show "Opie and Anthony" is out of a job after he tweeted a number of racially insensitive statements about an incident in New York's Times Square. He says a woman attacked him there after objecting to being pictured in a photograph that he took while in the iconic area. The owners of Sirius Radio fired him for the statements, calling them "racially charged" and "hate-filled." More here from The Hollywood Reporter, here from the New York Times.
