UPDATE: CINDY BRADY GOT THE BOOT – Susan Olsen Goes Off On Hate Speech Filled Homophobic Rant On Facebook At Gay Actor

On Monday night openly gay actor, writer, producer Leon Acord-Whiting of  hit web-series Old Dogs & New Tricks  was a guest on the LA Talk Radio show; Two Chicks Talking Politics co-hosted by former child actress Susan Olsen of the the Brady Bunch.  Ms. Olsen a die hard Republican and Trump supporter and Mr. Acord did not exactly see eye to eye on many issues as Olsen spewed right wing lie and propaganda such as that you can’t be a patriot if you’re liberal, that there hasn’t been a surge in anti-gay and racial hate crimes and if there is, its Hillary’s fault. Olson also said that Hillary needs to tell people to stop protesting and on and on.

The next day said Acord “ I posted on my Facebook page that I felt dirty and guilty for normalizing her hateful rhetoric, and that LA Talk Radio should remove her from the air.

Olsen who saw the post then went off on an unhinged hate speech filled rant against Acord   One so profanity laden and filed with anti-gay slurs if Alice was alive today she would have smacked the shit out of her and made her eat a bar of soap.

In 2013 shortly the passage of same sex marriage Olsen posted this latter on her Facebook page where she voices her support for marriage equality and laid homage to her onscreen television father Robert Reed who was gay.
 
 “As a child, I was BLESSED to have another father figure in my life. He did not replace my own beloved, Norwegian version of Jed Clampett, nor would he have wanted to. He simply harmonized with all of my family values and brought his own heart to our table,” the former child star writes of Reed, who died in 1992 after a six-month battle with colon cancer. (The actor was also HIV positive, which his doctor listed as a “significant condition contributing to death.”) Calling him a “true king among men,” Olsen goes on to note the immense impact Reed had on her life. “This tempetuous actor who bottle fed puppies when he wasn’t quarreling with the heads of networks shaped my heart as much as my biological parents did,” she writes. “So I really can honestly say, ‘My dad was gay.'”

That is until Robert Reed said something that she didn’t like. Than Olsen probably called him a “fucking faggot”and stomped off with her Kitty Carryall cursing like a trucker under her breath.

Florence Henderson, "Brady Bunch" Mom, and Outspoken LGBT Ally Passes Away At 82

Florence Henderson, who went from Broadway star to become one of America’s most beloved television moms in “The Brady Bunch,” has died, her manager and her publicist said. She was 82.

Henderson died Thursday night at Cedars-Sinai Medical Center in Los Angeles, after being hospitalized the day before, said her publicist, David Brokaw. Henderson had suffered heart failure, her manager Kayla Pressman said in a statement.

Family and friends had surrounded Henderson’s hospital bedside, Pressman said.

Premiering in 1969, The Brady Bunch was among the first shows to introduce to television the blended family. As its theme song reminded viewers each week, Henderson’s Carol was a single mother raising three daughters when she met her TV husband, Robert Reed’s Mike Brady, a single father who was raising three boys.

The eight of them became “The Brady Bunch,” with a quirky housekeeper, played by Ann B. Davis, thrown into the mix.

Mourners flooded social media with memories of Henderson.

The blonde, ever-smiling Henderson was already a Broadway star when the show began, having originated the title role in the musical “Fanny.” But after “The Brady Bunch,” she would always be known to fans as Carol Brady.

Henderson who was an outpsoken LGBT ally in a 2014 interview said that “If the show (TBB) were on today, I think it would definitely be addressed. After all, their father was gay.’

Not the character of Mike Brady, of course, but the late Robert Reed, the actor who played him.

Reed, who died in 1992, was not out publicly but Henderson always knew he was gay and early in the show’s run defended him to a director who she perceived to be a homophobic bully.

‘I think so many young people have such a difficult time,’ she says. ‘Most of the gay people I know – and I have so many gay and lesbian friends – so many tell me they were disowned and how tough it was for them growing up.

And all of them, they all knew they were gay from the time they were 5 or 6 years old. The kids that have no place to go and the parents don’t get it, don’t understand stand and stop loving them. How can you do that to a child?’

Henderson, also participated in many LGBT benefits and among her last was the Los Angeles LGBT Center’s 45th anniversary gala

‘I do so many benefits for the LGBT community – always have. ‘When AIDS first started, I was one of the first along with Debbie Reynolds to do a benefit – many, many years ago at The Hollywood Bowl. It was not easy to get people.  I just think I love people and have great compassion for human beings. Who are we to judge anyone. It always came natural for me to love people”

We love you Florence.  Rest peacefully Mrs. Brady.
