Anthony Cumia: “Artie Lange is in extreme danger” and needs to leave The A&A Show

In a recent episode of the A&A show, Anthony Cumia explained why Artie Lange won’t be on the show anymore. Cumia said Artie needs to take time away from the show to deal with his drug possession case.

“From this point to the foreseeable future, this is much too serious to try and pin a date on. We just won’t see Artie around here anymore. I’m sorry to say. The bottom line really is he needs to fix Artie Lange. He can’t worry about making it to this show every day,” said Cumia.

“After speaking with Artie Lange for a little while it has been determined that Artie Lange will be concentrating on Artie Lange. This is the deal. It has to be done. The guy is in extreme danger at this point. Both physically and legally coming up. This is no joke. He could literally be going to a federal pound me in the ass prison.”

Artie was arrested for drug possession last year, 81 decks of heroin to be specific. He was supposed to be sentenced in February, but that date was pushed back when he was hospitalized for health-related issues. Lange is set to be sentenced on June 1st, 2018.

Artie & Anthony Show: New Podcast with Artie Lange and Anthony Cumia!

RadarOnline has published an article revealing that former Howard Stern Show co-host Artie Lange is joining The Anthony Cumia Show, sort of.

Artie Lange, who is now 50, is leaving his own “Artie Quitter Podcast” to team up with broadcaster Anthony Cumia, former host of “The Opie & Anthony Show.” Together the two will form the Artie & Anthony Show, a new podcast and live broadcast set to debut September 4th, 2017 on Compound Media.

The Artie & Anthony Show will run Monday through Thursday from 4-6PM EST live from New York City.

“Artie was basically offered too much money to walk away from,” reported RadarOnline. “And it was Anthony’s idea to place Artie’s name first. They’ve been friends for a while.”

Artie, who enjoyed a successful two-year run with his Artie Quitter Podcast called the possibility of working with Ant “really interesting.” “I’d be going from working with Judd Apatow and HBO, who could not be more liberal, to Cumia, who is a total outlaw conservative!”

Howard Stern on Anthony Cumia’s Firing

Sirius XM recently fired Anthony Cumia over harsh Tweets he made toward a black woman he claimed punched him in the face on the street. He has been unrepentant, refusing to apologize.

His defense is he talks like that all the time on his “Opie & Anthony” show and nobody complains. Then again, his audience is used to it.

“People who listened to me on the air would have known, yeah, he talks like that on the show all the time,” Cumia told Fox. “For 10 years at SiriusXM, I had spoken like that, stringing together lines of obscenities in nonsensical fashion.”

Anthony from O&A Fired by SiriusXM

Anthony CumiaSome SiriusXM listeners have said they will cancel their subscription to the premium satellite radio service after it fired shock jock Anthony Cumia of the popular show Opie & Anthony for a slew of racist remarks he made on Twitter.

Cumia, 53, was fired for posting “racially-charged and hate-filled” remarks on Twitter, per a statement issued by SiriusXM, which the company deemed “wholly inconsistent with what SiriusXM represents.”

Those remarks, which Anthony has since deleted, stemmed from an incident with a black lady in Times Square. Anthony says he was taking pictures in the early morning hours, when the black lady, who Anthony alleges walked into the frame of one of his shots, began to physically assault him. Here are some of his twitter updates after the attack:

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

There’s a deep seeded problem with violence in the black community. Try to address it and you’ll be exiled to racistville. But it’s real

The switch to violence is immediate. No discussion, just violence. When will THAT be addressed? Oh, right, never. Slavery did it? Oh, ok

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

Cumia posted photos of the woman, whom he recalled “punched me in the face,” then “punched me 5 more times,” before launching into a political diatribe on the social media microblog which would span the next several days, saying at one point, “I hope she gets killed.”

SiriusXM has released 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.
