'Siesta Key' Star Alex Kompothecras Fired By MTV After Racist Social Media Posts

“Siesta Key” star Alex Kompothecras got fired on the night of the show’s premiere — and the network apparently cut him from most of the scenes.

via TMZ:

The show’s star, Alex was fired ahead of Tuesday’s season premiere … and our sources say he got canned because of racist social media posts and comments that have only recently come to light.

Fans of the reality show quickly noticed Alex’s air time was significantly reduced during Tuesday’s episode, and his name was scrubbed from the opening credits … and now we know what’s behind the stark change.

Honchos at MTV tell TMZ … “We’ve made the decision to cut ties with Alex and are editing the current season to minimize his presence. He will not be in future seasons of ‘Siesta Key.'”

MTV also scrubbed Alex’s bio from the show’s website, and the season premiere was slashed by over an hour.

Alex is no stranger to controversy … as we reported way back in 2017, Alex was tied to the fishermen responsible for a viral video of a heinous shark incident showing a shark on a fishing line being dragged behind a boat.

The less racists on television, the better. Bye Alex!
