Breaking news! Stop the presses! You’re gonna want to sit down for this….. Howard Stern said something the other day less than flattering about someone on his radio show. GASP! Holy fucking shitballs, the world is spinning backwards.
Of course, this comes as no surprise to anyone who would read a blog named something like “broken filter”. Or anyone on the planet for that matter. Whether you’re a Stern fan or not, or whether you’ve ever heard his show, or basically, as long as you haven’t had your head up a church deacon’s ass for the past 30 years, you know Howard Stern is the very embodiment of controversial and less-than-wholesome material. He’s the grandfather of the genre. He’s built a career – an empire, really – on fart jokes, pissing people off, and lesbians. Seriously folks, we’re talking about a dude here who showed up on a nationally-televised broadcast some years back in an assless spandex costume as “Fart Man”.
“It’s a little fat girl who kind of looks like Jonah Hill and she keeps taking her clothes off and it kind of feels like a rape,” was the comment in question. He said it about a chick named Lena Dunham, who has some show on HBO.
The uptight hag over at TV Guide who “reported” it didn’t write about how being careless with one’s words can have consequences, or about how comments like that can hurt people’s feelings, or that bullying isn’t something to teach the kids, blah blah blah. Her little article had no point whatsoever (like this one), other than to share with you the fact that he said it. This comes as some big shocker to people? I guess she decided that since he’s on that “reality” talent show now that he’s required to be on his best PC behavior at all times. Bullshit. The guy’s not gonna all of a sudden reverse 30 years of a signature style because he’s judging talentless asshats on tv. But she wanted you to know what he said, as a way to tell us just exactly what her opinion of the man is, while cowardly avoiding actually saying anything direct. She doesn’t have the balls to write an article detailing her opinions and backing them up – she’ll just take a veiled swipe and hope that you draw your own conclusions and opinions that she’s obviously hoping to influence. What an integrity-deprived douchenozzle. I don’t know, maybe she’s just pissed that he’s signing $20 million deals to do reality shows on top of his half-billion dollar deals to do a radio show, while she’s stuck writing about how Britney Spears is quitting the X-Factor, or what happened on last night’s episode of The Bachelor….all for 24k per year. If I were her, I guess I’d be a bitter little twit too.
And you know what the worst part about this whole thing is? Stern’s comment was actually right on the mark. The girl in question actually IS a little fat girl who kind of looks like Jonah Hill. But don’t take my word for it – you be the judge:
