Opie and Anthony radio show host Anthony Cumia has been fired by satellite-radio company SiriusXM, which cited his "racially charged" and "hate-filled" remarks on Twitter as the reason. Cumia's remarks and postings, including tweets and retweets that were degrading to women, were "abhorrent" to SiriusXM, company spokesperson Patrick Reilly said Friday. The shock jock was fired late Thursday, Reilly said. Cumia's response Friday on Twitter included an obscenity in relation to SiriusXM.
