Brady Bunch star laughs off ‘rediculous’ homophobia claims after anti-gay rant
Brady Bunch star Susan Olsen has responded to “rediculous” [sic] claims she is homophobic, after getting sacked for an anti-gay rant.
The avowed Trump supporter, who played Cindy Brady on the US sitcom ‘The Brady Bunch’, was dropped as a host by LA Talk Radio earlier this month – after leaked Facebook messages showed her sending homophobic abuse to a listener who accused her of spreading “misinformation”.
In messages to gay actor Leon Acord-Whiting, the former child actress wrote: “You are the biggest faggot ass in the world, the biggest pussy! “My dick is bigger than yours which ain’t saying much! What a true piece of shit you are! Lying faggot! I hope you meet your karma slowly and painfully.”
The station confirmed she would be dropped, saying: “LA Talk Radio takes pride in its close and collaborative relationship with the LGBT community… 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.”
Speaking out on Facebook over the weekend, Olsen claimed it was “rediculous” [sic] that she had been branded a homophobe.
Denying she had been sacked for homophobia, she said: “This is only about me supporting Trump. And I still do! And by the way, how does one get fired from a job they were never paid to do?”
She added: “I am very sorry for ever hurting the LGBT community that I love so much. For that, I am sorry and frankly find it hilarious that I am being called a homophobe. What could be more rediculous???
“I think that the real LGBT community knows that I have and always will support them. I love you!”
