Opie & Anthony Host Has a Long History of Racism

FOLLOW UP TO THIS POST



Last night, Anthony Cumia, host of SirusXM's The Opie & Show, went on an angry, bitter, violent, racist rant on Twitter for hours. At one point he literally said about African Americans: "They are not people." But anybody who is at all familiar with Cumia wasn't the least bit surprised by his vitriol.

Cumia claims to have been assaulted by a black woman in Times Square last night. He says he was taking photos and the woman objected to being in the frame. She allegedly punched him, although when pressed by his Twitter followers, he said he "never felt [his] life was in imminent danger" and didn't see a reason to "escalate the situation" by calling the police.

He did, however, call the woman a "fucking cunt" and later took to Twitter to call black people "animals" and "savages" who "prey on white people" and are inherently violent. He also repeatedly discussed how "lucky" she was that he didn't shoot her with the gun he was carrying and added that he hopes she gets killed or that "a home boy beats her to death."

But this isn't anything out of the ordinary for Cumia. He regularly makes jokes at the expense of black people on his SiriusXM show and his personal podcast. It's been going on for years, but the kind of people who would typically be offended by the things Cumia says about race aren't willing to wade through hours of his radio show everyday. He's been in a unique position to speak so egregiously on racial issues without being particularly challenged or taken to task by the opposition or his parent company.

Here's just a small taste of what he's said in recent years:

In an otherwise innocuous—and frankly, boring—discussion about a trip to the dentist, Cumia said:

"Does race matter to you at the doctors? It does to me. When I look for a doctor or a dentist, I look and I try to figure out the name and see if the name is somebody who might be my own race. I just trust my own race more."

I'm surprised it took this long to caught media's attention that this guy (which has a HUGE following) is a POS. I know the have been fined by SiriusXM before but I wonder what will happen this time...

Luis Suárez allowed to train during ban after FIFAlona backtracks.



Fifa has confirmed Uruguay have launched an appeal against Luis Suárez’s ban for biting Italy defender Giorgio Chiellini but the world governing body appeared to contradict its earlier ruling by stating the striker would not be barred from training during his suspension.

Suárez was banned from “all football activity” after the incident in Uruguay’s World Cup match against Italy, and this was assumed to include training.

However Claudio Sulser, the head of Fifa’s disciplinary committee, appeared to clear Suárez to take part in pre-season training at a press conference in Rio de Janeiro on Thursday . “No you can’t limit those rights to the player, because it would be disproportionate,” he said.

Sulser went on to confirm that said Uruguay have launched an appeal against the ban, which also rules Suárez out of their next eight internationals.

“This is still an ongoing case and an appeal has been filed, so I prefer not to give my opinion,” he said.

“When the committee was analysing this case, one thing I mentioned in my capacity as the chairman is we don’t need to impose an exemplary sanction, we need to have justice and reach the sanction in a very severe case.”

Isn't it curious that now that it looks like Barcelona will get him, he can suddenly train? But keep on thinking Liverpool is the only club that's ever acted despicable when it comes to Luis Suarez, tbh!

Happy Birthday Sailor Moon

Two years after celebrating the manga’s 20th anniversary, fans finally get their present.


In 1992, a 14-year-old Japanese girl set out to save our universe from total anhiliation.

She became a hero for young women around the world, saving them from evil and from the macho male heroes that permeated the media at the time. Her name was Usagi Tsukino, but you may know her better as the one named Sailor Moon.

Two years ago, on the 20th anniversary of the release of “Pretty Soldier Sailor Moon,” the manga created by author Naoko Takeuchi, it was announced that the beloved manga character would get a reboot from Toei Animation Studios. This weekend, fans will finally get to experience the updated version — an event that should have them swooning like they’re on a date with Tuxedo Mask.

The new series is being called “Pretty Guardian Sailor Moon Crystal,” with the “crystal” being a recurring motif in the show that “symbolizes a magical return to one’s origins,” according to “Sailor Moon Crystal” producer Yu Kaminoki. “The aim of this new animation is a return to the origins of Sailor Moon — to the manga.”

Don't forget - Sailor Moon Crystal premieres in tomorrow at 6AM EST! You can watch it on NicoNico (available worldwide; select your language), Hulu (available in the US), or Crunchyroll (available in the US, UK, Canada, Australia, New Zealand, South Africa, Mexico, and Latin America).

“Opie And Anthony” Host Fired After Racist Twitter Rant (Happy 4th!)

Here's cute animals because I don't want to post that shithead's picture:



Patrick Reilly, SiriusXM’s senior vice president of communications, told BuzzFeed in a statement that the DJ had been let go late Thursday night.

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.

Julie Benz and Charisma Carpenter, who both starred on "Buffy the Vampire Slayer" and its spinoff series "Angel," reunited in Hollywood on Wednesday night looking better than ever.

Benz, 42, was almost unrecognizable without her natural blonde locks, which she dyed brunette back in April for a new role. Carpenter, 43, looked almost exactly the same as she did back in her Sunnydale days.

'Seinfeld' at 25: Five reasons nothing is everything



"Seinfeld" had nothing to say -- and that was its genius.

Other groundbreaking series make a point of stressing their inventiveness, practically shouting, "Look at me!" "Seinfeld," on the other hand, blissfully took a Festivus pole to sitcom conventions, with unsympathetic characters, defiantly provincial New York interests and intricate plotting mechanisms -- and never called attention to itself.

Not that there's anything wrong with that.

Lady Gaga Knows ARTPOP Singles Were a Mess + Admits She LEAKED 'Aura' Herself!



Our forum member Gypsy18 was lucky enough to meet Lady Gaga backstage at her artRAVE show and shared details about what Gaga told fans during the meet and greet. Read the full story on our forum or see the excerpt below:



“During that conversation she talked about how she is concentrating on her album with Tony, but she would love to put out a B-side album with tracks from The Fame, The Fame Monster, Born This Way and ARTPOP.

“Then, talking more about her jazz album, she sang a snippet of ‘Paradise’, a song that she wrote for the record. She said it was inspired from a poem that her aunt Joanne wrote before she died. It’s about how her aunt knew she was gonna die but she was excited to see what heaven was like. The song sounded so good, I’m telling you.”

Who Is Hacking The Cast Members Of Glee? We Have Suspects


Hey, remember when someone (allegedly) hacked into Glee star Chris Colfer’s Twitter account and sent out a message to fans that he’d been “let go” for personal reasons? Internet users the world over aggressively overreacted immediately, because that’s how we roll, but, of course, before we were even done making our WTF faces, his publicist showed up to say the actor had been hacked. So, who could possibly dislike Chris Colfer enough to hack his Twitter account? Well, it seems the answer to that question has more to do with Glee and less to do with the actor himself because someone else from the cast just got hacked too.

Those who follow star Lea Michele were treated to a cute little message from her Twitter account announcing she was preggers today. Turns out that’s (allegedly) a lie too, as per her publicist, who swears there’s no baby growing inside her. Given the weird timing related to the Colfer incident, we’ll go ahead and believe her (and TV Line). If so, that would mean there is a serial hacker on the loose who is hellbent on screwing with the lives of the various cast members.

So, let’s take a look at the suspects…

5 Comic-Con Surprises Sure to Happen



Even if you've never set foot in the San Diego Convention Center for Comic-Con, you likely know that there are always a healthy number of surprises that aren't listed on the already-massive schedule. Last year, Warner Bros. dropped perhaps one of the biggest bombs in Con history, by simply unveiling a logo, the merging of Batman and Superman's iconic symbols that let everyone know the forthcoming Man of Steel sequel was, in fact, something much, much greater: Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice. Marvel did the same thing last year as well, with Joss Whedon announcing that the Marvel's The Avengers sequel will be titled Avengers: Age of Ultron, thus revealing the main villain in the same breath.

Way back in 2008, my first year attending SDCC, I was covering what I thought to be a rather innocuous Disney panel. Keep in mind, this is years before Disney had Marvel and LucasFilm in their stable. Out of nowhere, the lights went out and a bizarre video started playing on the screen, and just as we realized who Jeff Bridges was really playing... Tron: Legacy was announced. No one saw that coming, at all, and when that logo was flashed on the screen (at the time, they were going with Tr2n), it created the kind of euphoric bedlam that both studios and fans alike crave, and is one of the reasons San Diego Comic-Con gets bigger and bigger every year.

With SDCC 2014 just a few weeks away, we were pondering what dirty little tricks the studios have up their sleeves, which secret will cause the 7,000 nerds in Hall H to lose their shit. Of course, the official schedule hasn't even been released yet, but that hardly matters, since the best moments at the Con won't be found in that handy little guidebook they give you with your badge every year. With that in mind, we thought we'd dig deep through the highly-anticipated movies and TV shows coming out in the next year (or two) to see if we can determine what the big surprises of SDCC 2014 will be.

The Team USA goalie had just arrived back to Los Angeles ... when he was bombarded by super-excited soccer fans who showered the superstar in praise.


He signed autographs ... he shook hands ... but when one random dude went in for a hug -- that's when Howard broke out those cat-like reflexes ... and made sure the guy kept his distance.

Big Brother Ignoring Gay Showmance


Reality show romances, otherwise known as showmances, are staples in the genre as a way to stir up drama, solidify alliances, and titillate viewers. But why is one of the juiciest and most fan-supported showmances on this season’s Big Brother happening off TV?

Big Brother contestants Frankie Grande and Zach Rance have been getting more than cozy on the reality show’s 16th season, airing now on CBS. The two men are part of a strong alliance of mostly male contenders, but have also made a Final Two pact with each other. They’ve been spotted snuggling in beds, draped around each other, checking out each other’s backsides, and talking about masturbation and lubrication. There’s just one catch — all of this flirtation hasn’t made it to air.

Wonder Woman new artist David Finch doesn't want her to be feminist



In an interview with Comic Book Resources published Tuesday morning, DC Comics' incoming "Wonder Woman" artist David Finch, responding to a question on his and new series writer Meredith Finch's favorite aspects of the Wonder Woman mythology, stated that he did not want to use the term "feminist" in regards to the character.

Really, from where I come from, and we've talked about this a lot, we want to make sure it's a book that treats her as a human being first and foremost, but is also respectful of the fact that she represents something more. We want her to be a strong -- I don't want to say feminist, but a strong character. Beautiful, but strong.

Neymar is the Brazil's biggest star and has scored four goals for the team so far in the tournament.

“Call Me Maybe” singer Carly Rae Jepsen broke, pawning items for cash



“Call Me Maybe” singer Carly Rae Jepsen is broke. So broke that she’s desperate for cash and pawning items just to be able to make ends meet.

According to Crazy Days and Nights, the former Canadian Idol contestant was spotted in a New York City pawn shop in early January attempting to sell a handbag she originally paid $25K for. The only problem? The shop wouldn’t accept the bag due to the fact that they suspected it to be fake. Souces say Jepsen ultimately handed over a piece of jewellery instead and received $1,000 in return.

Ah, the life of a one hit wonder!

Fourth of July: A Breakdown of America's Favorite Patriotic Songs by State




Is your favorite America-themed song "God Bless the USA"? If so, then chances are you live in the Midwest or the South.

What about Miley Cyrus' "Party in the U.S.A"? Then you probably live in the Northeast.

At least that's according to a study conducted by Paul Lamere, director of developer platform for Spotify subsidiary The Echo Nest. He looked at data from the Fourth of July 2013 to determine what song the residents of each state listened to most compared with the previous week.

While Lee Greenwood's "God Bless the USA" was the song that popped up in the most states, other songs there were tops in various states included Whitney Houston's version of "The Star-Spangled Banner", Bruce Springsteen's "Born in the U.S.A", John Mellencamp's "R.O.C.K. in the U.S.A.", and America F--K Yeah" by Team America.

Kanye West reveals he first proposed to wife Kim Kardashian SEVEN YEARS ago

kk





They tied the knot in a glittering ceremony in Florence, Italy, a mere matter of weeks ago.

And while it's no secret that Kanye West had a long-term crush on Kim Kardashian for years, he has now revealed the true extent of his almost decade-long obsession with his now-wife. The 37-year-old rapper halted his performance at London's Wireless Festival on Friday night to launch into a rant about discrimination within the fashion industry.


But the Yeezus star also offered a glimpse into his romantic side, revealing he first proposed to the 33-year-old reality star some seven years ago - five years before they finally turned their friendship into a relationship in 2012. Addressing the crowd in a bejewelled mask, Kanye said: 'F**k saving face and what it's supposed to mean, it's about living my dream.

'I told Kim seven years ago I would marry her and I made it happen. I just wanted to make something awesome and be awesome and change the world, and that's exactly what I plan to do.' Kim and Kanye, who raise one-year-old daughter North 'Nori' West together, were friends for many years before they found romance, with Kanye previously admitting he fell for the raven-haired beauty back in 2006.


Speaking during an appearance on On Air With Ryan Seacrest last year, he said: 'I just knew I wanted her to be my girl for a long time. I remember I saw a picture of her and Paris Hilton, and I remember telling my boy, 'Have you seen that girl Kim Kar-dijon?'"

The rap mogul's revelation came after he was booed by festival goers for halting his Wireless performance for 20-minutes to launch into an epic rant.

He told the audience: 'I'm not going to mention any names but... Nike, Louis Vuitton and Gucci. Don't discriminate against me 'cos I'm a black man making music.'



And it would seem the move didn't go down too well with the crowd, with audience members reportedly deserting the al fresco gig in droves.

One festival-goer told MailOnline: 'He was laying into the 'machine' and ranting about the public's perception of him. Hundreds of people left the park early because they were so bored of his long rant. 'There was serious booing towards the end of the speech, as people got so fed up and just wanted to hear him perform.'

Some fans also took to Twitter to express their annoyance at the fact that the superstar rapper halted his performance to get on his soapbox.

One wrote: 'Serious booing during Kanye's obligatory 15 minute Runaway rant at Wireless. Just get the f**k on with it mate. (sic)'

Another added: 'There is a time and a place to get on your soap box @kanyewest and #wireless is not the place.'

While one said: 'Kanye West getting boos at wireless, for ranting on stage instead of rapping.' Kanye - husband of Kim Kardashian - was the headline act at Friday night's Wireless, which also saw the likes of Pharrell Williams, Foxes and Ella Eyre take to the stage. The star is now also headlining the music event on Saturday night after Drake was forced to pull out due to illness.

The Hold On We're Going Home hitmaker released his own statement which said: 'To my beloved fans, it truly breaks my heart that I won't be able to perform as planned at Wireless and Roskilde this weekend. 'I got sick a few days ago and although I am on my way to bouncing back, my doctors have made it clear that I am not physically fit to fly or deliver the performance my fans expect and deserve from me.

'I will be focused on resting for a quick recovery. I have the best fans in the world and I can't wait to come back to make more incredible memories together.'


The festival, which previously enjoyed several successful years in Hyde Park, will this year span two sites V Festival-style - one in Birmingham and one in London.

MailOnline has contacted a representative for Kanye West for comment.

Brad Pitt, Angelina Jolie to Film New Movie in Malta: Get the Details!



Looks like Brangelina liked what they saw in Malta last month. Following their June 7 trip to the European country to scout locations for an upcoming movie, Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie have decided to go ahead with their plans there.

"I'm happy that Hollywood producers have once again chosen Malta for their project, and we will be delighted to host Mr. Pitt, Ms. Jolie, and their family for the second time in just a few years," Prime Minister of Malta Joseph Muscat tells Us Weekly of the superstar couple and their six kids, who grew acquainted with the country when Pitt filmed World War Z there in 2011. "I'm sure that this film will help put our beautiful sister island of Gozo on the world map," he adds.

A source tells Us Weekly that the commission is a "very special" one for Malta. "They'll be filming in Mgarr ix-Xini Bay in Gozo," the insider says. "The whole family will be staying in Malta for eight weeks, arriving at the end of August."

The project in question is "a love story," the source adds. Details are scarce, but it's believed to be the film that Jolie, 39, wrote. "It's not a big movie, it's not an action movie," the Maleficent star previously told Extra of the film, which would feature her and her fiance, 50, in their first onscreen reunion since Mr. & Mrs. Smith. "It's the kind of movie we love but aren't often cast in," she added. "It's a very experimental, independent-type film where we get to be actors together and be really raw, open, try things."
