SiriusXM DJ Anthony Cumia, host of Opie and Anthony, is making headlines for reasons completely unrelated to his work. On July 2, the radio personality took to Twitter to explain an experience he’d had in Times Square, claiming that a woman came up to him and punched him for trying to take a picture.

According to Cumia, the African-American woman did not want to have her picture taken and proceeded to attack him. Cumia called the woman a “c—” and said “I hope she gets shot,” sparking an immediate reaction from followers, many of whom called Cumia a racist.

From there, Cumia continued to tweet about the incident, even posting pictures of his attacker. And today, he’s still replying to messages about the situation. Check out some of Cumia’s NSFW tweets below:

Sirius did not immediately respond to EW’s request for comment.
