Opie and Anthony, whose full names are Anthony Cumia and Greg “Opie” Hughes, apologized to listeners on Friday’s show, according to news reports.
“We apologize to the public officials for comments that we made on our XM show on May 9th. We take very seriously the responsibility that comes with our creative freedom and regret any offense that this segment has caused,” they said.
And from the suits:
“We deplore the comments made on Wednesday’s ‘Opie & Anthony Show,”‘ XM spokesman Nathaniel Brown told The Associated Press on Friday. He would not say whether XM planned to take disciplinary action.
I still don’t get it. An apology to “public officials”? Tell you what, forget the apologies for now and look into why you, Opie and Anthony, are so interested in negative attention.
Hey! Opie, Anthony, and listeners…isn’t it time for a new tune?
