All of the reports are saying that he was fired for a “racist Twitter rant”, etc. I didn’t read anything racist, but he was certainly pissed and called her everything except the n-word. I’m not sure whether to put this here in Cafe Society, or in GD or the Pit, so I’ll start here.
What astounds me is all of the commenters claiming that he is a racist asshole because he called her a “savage” and an “animal” for attacking him. Apparently the word “racist” has been diluted to the point that saying something bad about anybody with a different ethnic background makes you a racist.
The weird thing is that he didn’t call the police or make a report. He just claims that it happened. Therefore, people are doubting his version of the story. (IDK that there is another version of the story).
Another angle is that O&A have admitted that years ago they wanted to get fired from their Boston job (for a prank on Mayor Menino*) so that they could take a better job in New York. They complain a lot about stuff at SiriusXM and have implied that their next destination is podcasting, which they have already started.
I like their show and listen to them when I can, so I tend to believe his version. However, something is very fishy about the whole thing.
