Scoop: ‘Brady Bunch’ star fired from radio gig after homophobic rant

Susan Olsen, who played Cindy Brady, the youngest of the Brady children on “The Brady Bunch,” has lost her job as a radio host in Los Angeles after reportedly sending a homophobic rant on Facebook, according to US Weekly.

The former child star, who is now 55, was co-host on LA Talk Radio’s “Two Chicks Talkin’ Politics,” and in an episode on Dec. 7, she spoke with openly gay actor Leon Acord-Whiting, who after the show took to Facebook himself to say Olsen was “spreading misinformation.”

“It is wildly irresponsible for LA Talk Radio to allow a Trump fanatic to co-host one of their programs, where she can spew her idiotic lies unchecked. (Being a liberal and a patriot are mutually exclusive? Hillary is causing the protests & hate crimes? The Koran is a political tract?),” he posted, regarding the topics discussed on the air. “As much as I love [co-host] Sheena Metal, I think LA Talk Radio needs to give ‘Cindy Brady’ her walking papers.”

The next day, Olsen posted on her Facebook, “This is the little piece of human waste. He blocked himself from me before I could even get one hit in. If you can find him, please send him my love.”

Then, according to Acord-Whiting, she took it a step forward, sending Acord-Whiting an expletive-filled private message that he took a screen shot of and shared on Facebook.

“Hey there little p–sy, let me get my big boy pants on and Reallly take you on!!! What a snake in the grass you are you lying piece of s–t too cowardly to confront me in real life so you do it on Facebook. You are the biggest f—-t ass in the world the biggest p–sy! My D–k is bigger than yours Which ain’t sayin much! What a true piece of s–t you are! Lying f—-t! I hope you meet your karma SLOWLY AND PAINFULLY,” the message read.

LA Talk Radio announced Olsen was fired two days later.

STARS OUT FOR ‘LA LA LAND’

Emma Stone and Ryan Gosling showed up 45 minutes late to the red-carpet media meet-and-greet at the Castro on Thursday for the screening of their new movie “La La Land.” The stars, as well as writer-director Damien Chazelle and composer Justin Horwitz, were apparently still on the bridge — which one, it was unclear — at the start time.

And San Francisco director Chris Columbus apparently was the surprise moderator. Stone, thrilled to see him, leapt into his arms and embraced him twice.

Meanwhile, Gosling was a tough read on the red carpet on the Castro’s mezzanine. What was clear was his discomfort (and reliance on Stone) to carry most of the conversations with local reporters.
