Artie Lange

Suspended by DirecTV

for Pissing Incident

7/30/2012 4:10 PM PDT UPDATED: 7/31/2012 8:13 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
Exclusive Details

0730_artie_lange_tmzMt. Artie Lange finally erupted -- the former "Howard Stern Show" comedian has been suspended from his new radio gig for pissing on the studio floor ... and demanding 2 PAs clean it up.

Artie just tweeted "Direct Tv has suspended me from the N&A show for the next 2 nights. They won't tell me fully why. Can't continue w them. Sorry guys. Luv u."

Odd that Artie claims to not know why he was benched. Sources connected to the "Nick and Artie Show" tell TMZ the suspension came down because Artie urinated on the studio floor -- while on the air Friday.

As if that wasn't enough, he asked "Twinsanity" ... the show's 2 female PAs to clean it up. When they refused, some other poor schmuck got stuck with cleanup duty (below).

0730_artie_pissWe're told when Artie was informed of the 2 day suspension -- he threatened to leave the show for good.

Artie also tweeted ... "Direct Tv are good ppl. I apologize to them for doing an offensive show."

Our sources made it clear ... Artie has NOT been fired -- and honchos at DirecTV think he just needs a couple of days to reevaluate.

Artie's agent tells TMZ, "As Artie stated, he is sorry for the events that transpired on the show last Friday.  He is fully committed to working with DirecTV and looking forward to his return."

4:25PM PT  Artie has deleted his 2 tweets about DirecTV and his suspension. As for why? Still waiting to hear from his reps.

I just called direct tv. I'm not under contract and if isn't fired, I'll terminate my account.

This fat slob deserves nothing good in his life. What a waste of air.

He should be videotaped cleaning up others fresh piss off the floor.

Loser.

That is a sex offender offense in some states. Watch your children and playgrounds and schools and day cares. Artie is still free. As was Sandusky.

Doctors are always telling people to quit drinking and abusing their bodies the way this a-hole does. And yet, he keeps living no matter what he does!!!
Why doesn't he just explode and get it over with, we'd all be happier that way!

I say let this fat talentless loser piss on the floor again on the show. (He didnt even try to clean it himself)

Then once he's fully soaked the floor, let Stacey Lange come on in and clean up the mess.

See if he likes the feeling then!

Artie, how many chances do you think you get? You used up yours a couple of years ago. Start the dead pool, this guy doesn't have long.
