Anthony Cumia should not have lost his job as a radio personality for remarks, electronic or otherwise, that he made in his personal life, on his personal Twitter account. If SiriusXM had taken offense to remarks he had made on the air, or on a company social media account, that's their right, but the remarks that led to Mr. Cumia being terminated were a series of tweets accredited to Mr. Cumia's personal Twitter account. Americans should be allowed to lead their personal lives how they see fit, without having to worry about repercussions from their employer. Mr. Cumia is afforded the same freedom of speech as every other American, even if you find his views disgusting or in bad taste.

Reinstate Anthony Cumia

Dear SiriusXM,

We are hereby pledging to boycott your service until you reinstate Anthony Cumia. A member of your staff should not lose their job for exercising their first amendment right to free speech. You should be ashamed of your actions.

Sincerely,
[Your name]

      Thank you all for taking the time to show Anthony your support. We have reached a milestone, at 2000 supporters. We can not all be silenced. Continue to boycott SiriusXM until they realize that as an American, there is nothing more important than the first amendment. As far as people are concerned, it doesn't get anymore blatantly honest than one Anthony Cumia. SiriusXM knew exactly who they were getting when they signed his contract, and you can not fire an individual for being the same person they have always been.

      Please please please continue to get the word out, and share the petition as often as you possibly can, including the following hashtags: #TeamCumia #StandWithAnt and #Justice4Anthony

      I liked listening to O&A and it just not the same. I didn't renew as I listened mostly to that show.

      Opie and Anthony are comic gold. They work really well off of each other and bring a lot of energy and entertainment to radio. The only way I will renew my subscription to XM Sirius Radio is if Anthony returns. Since his departure, I have cancelled my subscription. Although Opie does entertain well, the show is lacking the extra character brought to the table by Anthony. BRING ANTHONY BACK!!!!

      You signed the guys up based on the talent and fan support. And you let them go based on a comment? In fact your other radio shows have said worse things than Anthony has said. You should fire about 50% of radio personalities based on what they said, Put the show back together.
