Susan Olsen is blaming her support of Trump – not her anti-gay slurs – on her radio show firing

After a week of silence, Brady Bunch alum Susan Olsen is speaking out about her being canned from a Los Angeles radio show because of anti-gay slurs.

‘This is only about me supporting (Donald) Trump. And I still do!’ she writes in Facebook post.

She adds: ‘And by the way, how does one get fired from a job they were never paid to do?’

Whether she was paid or not, LA Talk Radio took her off the air for using anti-gay slurs against a gay actor in a Facebook message made public.

The politically conservative Olsen, who played Cindy Brady on the classic sitcom, was incensed when out actor Leon Acord described as a ‘Trump fanatic’ and called for her to be fired from the radio show in Facebook post. He accused Olsen of spreading misinformation.

She sent him a private message calling him a ‘faggot’ more than once and a ‘pussy’ among other crude insults. Acord screenshot the messages and made them public.

The station said in a statement on its Facebook page last week that it had ‘severed ties’ with Olsen.

‘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.’

‘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.’

4 Remarks

  1. She knows why she was fired and why it’s wrong; but, like most right wing conservatives, she’ll use other excuses to cover the stench of her own words. Typical: blame everyone else and distract from the issue at hand. Disgusting.

    It doesn’t matter what Olsen wants to say she was let go for. The important thing is that the radio station has severed ties with her.

  3. She was a hate monger long before she was a Trump supporter, although Trump has given her, and her kind, free rein to vent their ignorant speech.

  4. Sarah Palin, Jr., here’s a clue for you. Being a Trump supporter = being a bigot. Being a bigot = using words like faggot and pussy when speaking to or about a gay person. You, Little Beyotch Brady, got fired because you are a bigot and aren’t afraid to show your true colors to the world. I feel so sorry for you for embarrassing yourself like that. Oh wait, no I don’t. You got what you deserved! HA!
