Last week, late one night, Cumia went to Times Square in New York City and pulled out his camera to start taking pictures of people.
Who does that, outside of a Walmart?
Anyway, a woman did not like him taking pictures of her, although the law does tend to favor his side of it. They got into a tussle, a melee, a fracas, you might say. He took her picture, she didn't like it, words were exchanged. That used to be where it ended.
But this is 2014, so Cumia had to go on Twitter to tell his story and say some really nasty things about the woman, and because his rants were so hate-filled, he was fired by the satellite radio network that people listen to on long car rides.
And then it was really on! Fans of his radio show piled on, erroneously claiming that his First Amendment rights were being infringed upon. The Constitution does not forbid your employer from firing you for making insane statement, however.

And then came the comment I saw:
"When did being obnoxious become acceptable?"
|They pay him millions|
and he still can't be nice
We can do better than that.
