Howard Stern Fires Back At Andy Dick For Anti-Semitic Remarks

Howardstern

 

Radio host Howard Stern has never held back when it comes to saying what he feels, and this time it's with good cause.

Stern fired back at troubled comedian Andy Dick, who went on an anti-Semtic rant on the Greg Fitzsimmons show on Tuesday, calling Stern "a shallow, money-grubbing Jew," reports Radar.

Dick also reportedly said of Stern, "I have no problem with his big fat hook nose ... and his money-grubbing, miserly Jewishness."

Dick told Fitzsimmons that Stern "used to be a really great friend" but is furious with the self-proclaimed "King of All Media" after he hung up on him during a call-in appearance with Charlie Sheen earlier this year, and took shots at him with co-host Robin Quivers afterwards.

Stern was told about Dick's comments by one of his listeners while on air, but wasn't surprised Dick would sink so low.

"Yeah, well that's where people like to go," Stern said. "It kind of points out where people's heads really are ... And let me point this out there isn't a moment in my life I don't know that, that is what is in people's heads ... It always comes down to the Jew. And scumbags like Andy Dick, and I hadn't heard this yet, but I know what's in their heads anyway."

Stern continued telling Dick to get his act together, telling his listeners, "I guess Andy's downward spiral continues, and now he's blaming me for all his problems ... Stop looking for handouts you f**king wacko, stop waiting for the Jew to give you a job!"

This isn't the first time Dick has resorted to racist words, in 2006 he eventually apologized for going on a racist rant using the N-word at a Los Angeles comedy club.

Dick, who has been in and out of rehab for drug and alcohol problems and even appeared on "Celebrity Rehab" with Dr. Drew Pinsky in 2008, was arrested in 2010 after being accused of grabbing a bouncer's crotch, as well as groping and kissing a male club goer. The comic was ordered by a West Virginia judge to stand trial beginning January 17, 2012, for the two felony counts of sexual abuse in the first degree.

As of late, Dick's legal problems have made far more headlines than his career, he was most recently arrested in May at a restaurant in Temecula, CA for disorderly conduct while allegedly under the influence of drugs or alcohol.

Oh good grief. Since when does being called a miserly Jew constitute anti-semite. I know several who pride themselves in that fact. Was this the only card Stern could play?

BTW I detest Andy Dick but seriously...

Wow, where does Howard Stern get off whining about being offended? His entire career is built on not caring if what he says offends people - in fact deliberately trying to offend people - and karma bites him hard in the ass. Good. Suck it up, Howard, what is good for the goose is good for the gander .

Btw, j think Andy Dick lives up to his last name and his comments were disgusting. I just also think Howie boy is a massive hypocrite for calling anyone out over making offensive comments.

So you don't think calling someone a "shallow, money-grubbing Jew" is anti-Semitic?

I'm a little dumbfounded here.

Howard Stern is offensive but I'm trying to recall where he was smearing entire groups of people with hate speech and am failing to remember it.  If Andy Dick wanted to call out Howard Stern and tell him what a creep he is, I wouldn't have a problem, but to attack him for being Jewish is a whole 'nother thing.

No I don't. They used to be friends and had a falling out he is not being anti-semitic he is just lashing out at Stern and Stern saw the oppertunity to get sympathy and publicity.  Stern is a Jew and all he did was say that. Those are all things that he used to describe Stern as a person not Jews in general. That would be the difference I see.

Everyone is a genius. But, if you judge a fish by its ability to climb a tree it will think it is stupid.

Sorry but I don't agree. If you make a living deliberately being offensive you have no room to complain about being offended.

Then I'm very dumbfounded.  Yes, Stern is a Jew, but it is being used as a slam here.  If he was saying this was about Stern only and not Jews in general, why bring "Jew" into it at all? 

I'm Jewish and I'm telling you this is highly offensive.  I'm quite disturbed that you would think it isn't.
