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.
