Shock jock Anthony Cumia, co-host of “Opie and Anthony” on SiriusXM, has been fired for a controversial Twitter rant, according to a tweet he posted earlier this morning.

Earlier this week, Cumia claimed he had been punched by a woman in Times Square. The woman allegedly objected to being photographed by Cumia. After the incident, Cumia posted a number of angry, profane tweets, which were highlighted by Gawker and other prominent news outlets. A sampling:

In December 2012, Cumia tweeted about breaking gymnast McKayla Maroney’s hymen. She had just turned 17 years old at the time. When we reported on his tweets, he told Twitchy to “f*ck themselves.”
