Susan Olsen, the former child star of "The Brady Bunch," lost her radio talk show gig in Los Angeles last week after getting into a social media dispute with gay actor and calling him a "little piece of human waste," among other things.

Olsen, 55, who played Cindy Brady, the youngest of girls in "The Brady Bunch" clan from 1969 to 1974, was co-host of the LA Talk Radio's program "Two Chicks Talkin' Politics."

Actor Leon Acord-Whiting took exception to some of the actress' comments while he was a guest on her show and posted a message about her on his Facebook page Wednesday.

 

 

Olsen reportedly responded to Acord-Whiting in what Fox News described as "an expletive-laden post" and where she used an offensive term for gay men. The response has now been deleted.

In a post that is still up on Olsen's Facebook page, the actress complained that Acord-Whiting blocked her from responding before she had a chance.

 

 

She also appeared to threaten the actor in another post on her Facebook page.

 

 

LA Talk Radio stated on Facebook that it had "cut ties" with a radio host Friday, with Fox News stating the message referred to Olsen.

 

 

Publicist Marky Hutt has started a petition on Change.org to get Olsen back on the LA Talk Radio airwaves.

"As a friend of Susan & openly proud/gay Trump supporter, I know that many of us still stand by Susan's side," said the online petition. "I've never heard Susan say anything remotely homophobic in my life. Just remember, there are three sides to every story, his side, her side, & the truth."

Social media continued to weigh on Olsen this week.
