Howard Stern v. Jamie Foxx

http://www.jewishjournal.com/blog/item/howard_stern_v_jamie_foxx_20100405/

One thing Howard Stern understands about radio is that it is a macho medium. It’s a man’s world.  My friend Teresa Strasser, who used to co-host the Adam Carolla Show on 97.1, pointed out to me that a woman DJ doesn’t stand a chance in drive time.  It’s cultural, but it’s also aural—the timbre of a woman’s voice is difficult for people to listen to for four or five hours at a time. A quick glance of who’s who in radio bears that out—Rush, Howard, Sean Hannity.  With one exception—Laura Ingraham, the Top Fifteen radio talk show hosts are men.

Stern understands that in a man’s world, macho rules.  That’s why he has perfected the art of the radio battle—he knows how high the stakes are in the schoolyard brawl of radio. His current comer is the actor and singer Jamie Foxx.

Some crew on Foxx’s Sirius show attacked Howard for comments he made about ‘Precious’ actress, Gabourey Sidibe. Stern said Hollywood didn’t have many opportunities for grossly obese women, and that the press and others would do her a favor by pointing out to her and those who look up to her that Sidibe’s weight problem will cripple and kill her.
VJs at Jamie Foxx’s ‘Foxxhole’ station on Sirius/XM radio bashed Stern for his comments, then Foxx himself defended his VJs. Foxx attacked Stern as irrelevant.

That set Stern off—he had to fight back—and it was on.

What’s fascinating is how quickly it gets ugly on radio.  Foxx called Robin Quivers a “house nigger”—about as low a name as one could use to describe a woman who has pioneered a path in prime time radio.  (Seriously, Robin Quivers is the Hattie McDaniels of radio, period.  It’s an achievement she gets no credit for, because in a race-obsessed society people—like Foxx—can only see her in relation to Stern).

“The crew started in with me and I’m not some pussy who’s gonna sit here and take it and listen to some bullshit.” He said. “And quite frankly, I’m mad now because, you know, I got a shitload of stuff on Jamie Foxx, which isn’t a lot of fun and if he wants to start in with me….I don’t really care about Jamie Foxx. He says we’re friends but we’re not friends. He’s been on my show a couple of times. I don’t consider him a friend anymore.”

That opened up the floodgates—Stern kept pushing further and further.  He knows fights are a way to establish radio pecking order, and he has 30 years more experience with it than Foxx.  Stern knows how to go for the jugular and hang on until the floor is bloody. He started by hinting that Foxx himself is in the closet. ( In Stern’s universe the greatest crime is inauthenticity. He’s a champion of gay rights, but quick to attack those who pretend to be something they’re not, like straight.).  And that’s likely just the beginning….

Meanwhile, reading the comments on the sites covering the fight, it’s pretty shocking how many people go to the Jew thing.  Take a peek at some of the comments:

  Foxx is getting what he deserve. How could he go along with that hook nose jew putting down a black woman and compared Sidibe to late rapper The Notorious B.I.G. Worst Stern outed him for what he is an under cover fag and no friend of his. I will never understand why every time some black men get a chance to put down a black woman they jump on it. I will never support anything he does again.

  lots of black folk on this board defending Howard Stern, wtf? why nimrods? When will black folk ever learn that united we stand and divided we fall. Get out of that slave mentality of defending the white man. Stop blowing Howard Stern, what has he done for black folks or for you lately? You all need to back the brother (Jamie Foxx that is), because he does not have to stick his neck out for black folks, he’s already paid. We are a pathetic race of people. Howard Stern is Jewish and you best believe, Jews will have no problem coming to his defense whether he’s right or wrong, that’s why he gets away with so much bulshet. But that’s how the Jews get down. We need to take a page out of that book and stop believing the white man has the coldest ice.

  Howard is an extremely powerful Jewish man…He hasn’t done what he has done all these years without some serious protection from the hierarchy…You will all know how powerful Howard is by how Jamie response to him…Howard basically blew Jamie’s cover about being gay…

  But you are a Jew!!!! Wwhy you f**king Jews always playing the victim card.F**K YOU Howard Jew Stern.

  AND THIS IS ANOTHER EXAMPLE RIGHT HERE!
  How is it that a smelly looking dried up Jew man can degrade, disrespect and try to belittle a positive educated black woman and be allowed to get away with it with no consequences? Let a black man say “jew b*tch” and the curtains will close on his black azz! Career finished!!!!
  yes jamie said Gabby looks like Notorious BIG. She sort of does.lol I love BIG! Im brooklyn born and raised…BK all day! A joke? Yes, no disrespect. But noooooo some of us black people wanna come down on Jamie, some even saying he’s no better than this Jew trash. WAKE THE FCK UP!
  …and for the record, Howard said much more then this “Gaby Sidibe is the most enormous black chick he’s ever seen, how she’s not really going to get anymore roles, and how everyone’s just being nice to her because she’s the fat chick” I would tell you to google it but do you really want to?


  because just about all the producers and casting agents are…And Hollywood no longer hires hetro humans that aren’t Jewish.

  EVERYBODY KNOW JAMIE IS A BOULE f*g. HOWARD A JEW SO HE KNOW FIRST HAND. PROB f***ED JAMIEWITH THE REST OF THEM RICH WHITE BOYS WILL SMITH *COUGHS*

Three thoughts:  Howard seems to represent “Jew” in the popular conscience more than any other celebrity, maybe save Steven Spielberg.

Some people out there have some pretty conflicted feelings about Jews.

Advice to Jaime:  Go into the Stern studio and make nice.  You don’t need this.  Ask Les Moonves.
