SiriusXM radio host and former America’s Got Talent judge (2012-2015) Howard Stern has weighted in on the Gabrielle Union/Simon Cowell/AGT controversy.
“How is it that Simon Cowell has orchestrated this? He has set it up that the men stay, no matter how ugly they are, no matter how old they are, no matter how fat they are, no matter how talentless they are. What he manages to do on all his shows is he constantly replace the hot chicks with hotter chicks and younger chicks, which is so obvious. “Simon (and) Howie get to stay, but the three women had to go: Tyra Banks, Mel B., Heidi Klum, and they find two younger, hotter women.”
Questioned why judge Howie Mandel is still on the show.
“It’s one thing if you fire everyone, but why is it always the women on that show that constantly go into rotation? I like Howie, he’s doing a fine, serviceable job, but why don’t they change him? And why don’t they change Simon?”
and also weighed in on Leno’s alleged comments and Union’s reaction to them.
“Let’s go on record as telling people that one million dogs are still eaten annually in South Korea, and if Gabrielle Union wants to effect positive change, maybe focus on the horrors of Korean dog farms and let the old irrelevant comic live in peace. She wants Jay beaten in the streets. I think maybe Jay makes a point.”
