While Howard Stern has a history as a shock jock, he is making an awful lot of sense when it comes to COVID-19. The Sirius radio host was a frequent critic of Donald Trump and how he handled the pandemic. Stern has also mocked the large number of anti-vax Conservative radio hosts who have succumbed to the illness.
And on Tuesday, the legendary broadcaster took aim at NBA star Kyrie Irving. Irving, a member of the Brooklyn Nets, has been sent home until he gets vaccinated.
“Talk about stupid, there’s some people who are willing to walk away from millions of dollars and not get vaccinated,” Stern began. “They’re so stupid they’re putting their mouth where their money is. He’s my favorite dude who’s putting his money where his mouths is,” Stern added of Irving. “In terms of idiots, he’s gotta be the top idiot in the country right now. Guys got a chance as a young man to make millions of dollars, all he’s gotta do is get vaccinated.”
The radio host continued, “This guy’s got a history of being stupid. He’s one of those guys who is a flat-earther too. And he doesn’t know anything, his mind works in a very strange way. He says, ‘I can’t figure out gravity, so it doesn’t exist.'”
Stern closed his rant, “I don’t know who runs the Nets, but I wish they were running the country. love this. Basically saying, ‘listen douchebag, you’ve got to do what is right.’”
