‘Brady Bunch’ Alum Susan Olsen Fired From Radio Job After Homophobic RantPublished on December 12, 2016.
Susan Olsen has been known for most of her career as Cindy Brady after starring in the pivotal role on The Brady Bunch from 1969-1974. Recently in her career Olsen has been working as a radio host on a Los Angeles show, but has now been fired after posting a homophobic rant on her Facebook page.
The 55-year-old spoke with gay actor Leon Acord-Whiting as she co-hosted the Talk Radio show “Two Chicks Talkin’ Politics” on Wednesday December 7, but after the show, Acord-Whiting took to is Facebook to accuse Olsen of “spreading outrageous misinformation.” In his post, the actor wrote, “It is wildly irresponsible for LA Talk Radio to allow a Trump fanatic to co-host one of their programs, where she can spew her idiotic lies unchecked. (Being a liberal and a patriot are mutually exclusive? Hillary is causing the protests & hate crimes? The Koran is a political tract?). As much as I love [cohost] Sheena Metal, I think LA Talk Radio needs to give ‘Cindy Brady’ her walking papers. I will not listen to or appear on any shows there from this point forward until she’s gone. This isn’t just disagreeing on, say, tax plans or foreign policy. Susan Olsen spreads outrageous misinformation & it is dangerous and unprofessional.”
In response, Olsen wrote, “This is the little piece of human waste. He blocked himself from me before I could even get one hit in. If you can find him, please send him my love.” Acord-Whiting then shared a private message that Olsen allegedly sent him which read, “Hey there little p–sy, let me get my big boy pants on and Reallly take you on!!! What a snake in the grass you are you lying piece of s–t too cowardly to confront me in real life so you do it on Facebook. You are the biggest f—-t ass in the world the biggest p–sy! My D–k is bigger than yours Which ain’t sayin much! What a true piece of s–t you are! Lying f—-t! I hope you meet your karma SLOWLY AND PAINFULLY.”
As a result, LA Talk Radio confirmed they had fired the former child star on Friday, December 9, saying in part, “We will not tolerate hateful speech by anyone associated with our radio station and have severed our ties with a host that veered off the direction in which we are going.”
