Howard Stern has things to say.
Howard Stern takes no pity on his peers.
The iconic shock jock has typically strong opinions about the swelling list of outspoken anti-vaxxer media personalities — including several US radio hosts — who’ve died of COVID-19 after waging high-profile campaigns about their “freedom” being impinged upon.
“When are we going to stop putting up with the idiots in this country and just say, you know, it’s mandatory to get vaccinated?” Stern ranted in Tuesday’s episode of “The Howard Stern Show” on Sirius XM. “F–k them, f–k their freedom. I want my freedom to live. I want to get out of the house already. I want to go next door and play chess. I want to go take some pictures.”
The 67-year-old “King of All Media” continued to mock the deceased right-wing radio hosts, taking particular pleasure in pointing out how many of the dead — at first proudly defiant — changed their tunes on their death beds.
“It’s really funny when these radio, the radio guys are the best, they’re like four of them died, four of them were like ranting on the air. They will not get vaccinated,” Stern said amid laughter during Tuesday’s show. “They were on fire, these guys. It was like day after day, they were all dying and then their dying words are ‘I wish I had been more into the vaccine. I wish I had taken it.’
