Susan Olsen, a former child star who played Cindy Brady on "The Brady Bunch," was fired from her hosting job on LA Talk Radio in Los Angeles on Friday.

Olsen, one of the hosts of "Two Chicks Talkin' Politics," was criticized by Leon Acord-Whiting, an openly gay actor and creator of the TV show "Old Dogs & New Tricks." The two argued on-air after Acord-Whiting criticized Olsen for supporting Donald Trump. Olsen later posted a profane Facebook status, followed up with a direct message to Acord-Whiting that used a gay slur. 

Here's the public Facebook post.

According to a screenshot posted by The AV Club, Olsen went on to further insult Acord-Whiting in a direct message, ending with, "I hope you meet your karma SLOWLY AND PAINFULLY." 

LA Talk Radio announced Olsen's firing on Friday.

Whiting continued to criticize Olsen after the firing.
