Anthony Cumia, of Opie & Anthony radio fame, launched a
misogynistic, racially charged rant after he was allegedly roughed up by
a woman in Times Square.
The 53-year-old shock jock said he was repeatedly punched by the
woman early Tuesday while innocently snapping pictures and she
accidentally got into a frame.
“So I’m taking pix in NYC & a black girl who was in frame punched
me in the face. I called her a f–king “&$;;-:” cause that’s what
she WAS!” the always articulate radio personality tweeted on Wednesday.
"Then she punched me 5 more times. She's lucky I was a white legal gun
owner or she'd be dead. Then 5 blacks started giving me sh*t!"
Anthony has been on a non-stop Twitter rant ever since, claiming white people are easy targets of African-Americans.
Among his more incendiary tweets:
"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
"The switch to violence is immediate. No discussion, just violence. When
will THAT be addressed? Oh, right, never. Slavery did it? Oh, ok."
The NYPD had no assault reports from anyone named Anthony or Tony Cumia this week, law enforcement sources said.
Reps for SiriusXM, which carries the “Opie & Anthony” show, could not be immediately reached for comment on Thursday.
Cumia posted several pictures of the woman he claims roughed him up.
“Here’s a blurry shot of her taking another swing. See her claw in the lower left? It’s bound for my head,” Cumia wrote.
“Here she is all up in my face. Mouth flippin’ and yappin’. She had already sucker punched me so I snapped a pic.”
Cumia also said the woman was the first to hurl a racial slur.
“The 1st words out of her dumb a-s mouth after punching me in the
head were `white motherf–ker’ but I’m the racist here? Bizarro land!” he
“I was assaulted and used `mean’ words on twitter and I’M the bad guy
in all this? Lol! This world is completely ass backwards!”
Cumia demanded he be viewed as the sympathetic figure here and insisted he’s no bigot.
“My posts on Twitter after I was assaulted were profanity laced
indeed but racist? Nope. Why should I afford my attacker any courtesy.
Insane,” he tweeted.
