Howard Stern claimed that President Trump actually “despises” his biggest supporters and the radio talk show host said he “hates” the people who voted for the commander-in-chief.
Hi did label a lot of people as racist for some strange reasons.
But one video that re-surfaced lately portrays a different Howard Stern.
He has become the latest in a long list of celebrities and power players to be forced to confront their use of blackface.
On Thursday a video appeared online showing Stern in minstrel-style makeup, liberally using the N-word. It was cut together with a recent appearance on “The View” during which he claimed he’d never used that word.
The clip seems to take aim at Ted Danson’s infamous 1993 blackface performance with then-girlfriend Whoopi Goldberg — was part of Stern’s “New Year’s Rotten Eve Pageant,” which aired on pay-per-view on December 31 that year.
In the video he plays Danson, and addresses his long-time black sidekick Robin Quivers, making corny and highly racist jokes, such as, “What do you call a black rocket scientist?,” the punchline to which is the N-word.
When his audience seems shocked by the language, Stern defends himself by saying, “Whoopi wrote it!” Then he calls Quivers a “smelly” N-word, and again excuses himself by saying, “Whoopi wrote that.”
While appearing on The View, famed radio personality Howard Stern was called out by the show’s co-host Sunny Hostin, who says his prior use of the n-word was highly offensive. He denied ever using the word, but evidence suggests otherwise, especially a visual with him in blackface. Another compilation of him using the N word.
The clip was first posted by controversial filmmaker Tariq Nasheed and bubbled up among Trump’s supporters — possibly because Stern recently came out against President Trump — and was eventually retweeted by Donald Trump Jr.
I wonder if Howard Stern’s career is over?
