Billionaire Howard Stern (Racism-Past)


https://pagesix.com/2020/06/12/howard-stern-under-fire-for-past-use-of-blackface-skit-with-n-word/

Billionaire Howard Stern has become the latest in a long list of celebrities and power players to be forced to confront their use of blackface.

On Thursday a video appeared online showing Stern in minstrel-style makeup, liberally using the N-word.

It was cut together with a recent appearance on "The View" during which he claimed he'd never used that word.

Sources tell Page Six that the clip

— a skit that seems to take aim at Ted Danson's infamous 1993 blackface performance with then-girlfriend Whoopi Goldberg

— was part of Stern's "New Year's Rotten Eve Pageant," which aired on pay-per-view on December 31 that year.

In the video he plays Danson, and addresses his long-time black sidekick Robin Quivers, making corny and highly racist jokes, such as,

"What do you call a black rocket scientist?," the punchline to which is the N-word.

When his audience seems shocked by the language, Stern defends himself by saying, "

WHOOPY WROTE IT !" "Whoopi wrote it!"

Then he calls Quivers a "smelly" N-word, and again excuses himself by saying, "Whoopi wrote that."

The point of the skit seems to be that Danson used Goldberg's apparent blessing of his behavior as LICENSE TO BE A FREELY RACIST. license to be freely racist.
