Howard Stern Called Out For Prior Use Of N/Word & Blackface
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.
Additionally, Sunny shares, “I was in college in the ‘80s, and I found your show so offensive. You were a shock jock, you used the n-word a lot.” Denying the claim, he retorts, “We had a guy on from the Ku Klux Klan who very freely used the n-word, and my belief was hey, say it out in the open, I didn’t use the n-word. Let’s be very clear.”
Though he explains himself in that case, many people recall ‘Howard Stern’s New Year’s Rotten Eve 1994‘ special, where he wore blackface, during a sketch with a stand-in Whoopi Goldberg, and used the uncensored n-word six times in less than two minutes.
