- Susan Olsen has been fired from radio show after using inappropriate slurs.
The 55-year-old has been busy on radio as she frequently appears on LA DJ Sheena Metal’s weekly talk show Two Chicks Talking Politics. Olsen’s views have been pretty controversial and, in March, she praised Trump in an interview. However this week, things took a turn for the worst when Olsen attacked actor Leon Acord-Whiting after he slammed her for “spreading outrageous information.” Olsen lashed back at the actor on social media, threatening him and using inappropriate language.
Olsen has since been fired from her LA radio show due to the outburst. The radio station released a statement on its Facebook page, addressing the incident by saying: “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. Thank you for your loyalty and continued support. LA Talk Radio stands for love and community, and we will always support all of our friends around the world.”
