She played the youngest daughter on The Brady Bunch, but now Susan Olsen is all grown up – and out of a job.
Most famous for her role as Cindy Brady in the sitcom classic, Olsen was fired from her hosting gig at LA Talk radio on Friday after going off on a homophobic rant against openly gay actor Leon Acord-Whiting.
Olsen, 55, took to Facebook to unleash a series of status updates targeted towards Acord-Whiting after he criticized her following an appearance on her show ‘Two Chicks Talkin’ Politics’ with co-host Sheena Metal.
‘It is wildly irresponsible for LA Talk Radio to allow a Trump fanatic to co-host one of their programs, where she can spew her idiotic lies unchecked,’ Acord-Whiting wrote.
Acord-Whiting then cited some of Olsen’s false claims, including that ‘being a liberal and a patriot are mutually exclusive’, ‘Hillary is causing the protests and hate crimes’, and ‘the Koran is a political tract’.
‘As much as I love Sheena Metal, I think LA Talk Radio needs to give “Cindy Brady” her walking papers,’ he continued.
‘I will not listen to or appear on any shows there from this point forward until she’s gone. This isn’t just disagreeing on, say, tax plans or foreign policy.’
‘Susan Olsen spreads outrageous misinformation & it is dangerous and unprofessional.’
But Olsen wasn’t done. She then decided to send a private message to Acord-Whiting through Facebook, using obscenities, homophobic slurs and hate language to attack the actor.
Olson also publicly threatened the actor, telling him: ‘You had better hope you never see me in your world…and I mean that!’
Two days after Olsen’s first rant was posted, LA Talk Radio gave her the boot.
‘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,’ it wrote in a statement posted to Facebook.
‘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.’
