Former ‘Brady Bunch’ Star Fired After Allegedly Calling Gay Actor A Homophobic Slur
Susan Olsen has been fired from her job after she allegedly went on a rant and called a gay actor a homophobic slur on Facebook.
Olsen, who played Cindy Brady for five seasons on “The Brady Bunch,” invited openly gay TV actor Leon Acord-Whiting on her show “Two Chicks Talkin’ Politics” last Wednesday. According to the Us Weekly, Acord-Whiting and Olsen got into a heated argument on the show that later carried over onto social media.
Acord-Whiting accused Olsen, who said she supported Donald Trump, of using her radio platform to spread “outrageous misinformation” on his Facebook page, and publicly asked her employer — internet-based LA Talk Radio — to terminate her employment.
Olsen shot back a day later, writing,“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.”
The theater star claimed Olsen then sent him a private message that partially read: “Hey there little p—sy, let me get my big boy pants on and Reallly take you on!!! … You are the biggest faggot ass in the world the biggest p—sy! … Lying faggot! I hope you meet your karma SLOWLY AND PAINFULLY.”
She also allegedly wrote: “I love homosexuals but you’re a fag.”
LA Talk Radio announced Olsen’s termination on Facebook Friday, writing: “LA Talk Radio takes pride in its close and collaborative relationship with the LGBT community, and will continue to provide a home for those who have hopeful and positive messages of togetherness and tolerance to share with our listeners.”
LA Talk Radio did not mention Olsen by name in the post, but Acord-Whiting celebrated her apparent firing on Facebook Sunday.
