(THE WRAP) — Angry “Opie and Anthony” fans are canceling their subscriptions to SiriusXM after the satellite radio company fired co-host Anthony Cumia earlier this week for making racially inflammatory tweets.
Cumia claimed Tuesday that an African-American woman assaulted him in Times Square. In retaliation, he posted her photo and called her a string of profanities on Twitter including the c-word and “savage,” which triggered his firing.
Many loyal fans vented their frustration on social media by tweeting screenshots of their service cancellation emails, and wrote hashtags of support including #IStandWithAnthony and #CancelSiriusXM.
