  • Twitter users defended Stern from Trump Jr.

Howard Stern fired back at Donald Trump Jr. after the latter retweeted his 1993 blackface video.

On June 11, Trump Jr. shared an article of Stern parodying Ted Danson’s infamous blackface performance on Twitter. In the caption, he wrote, “Howard Stern says N-word too many times during awful blackface impressions that should have Libs yelling ‘CANCEL!’”

The radio personality has been involved in a public spat after he criticized President Donald Trump for mishandling the coronavirus pandemic and the Black Lives Matter protests.

On Monday (June 15), Stern acknowledged the video on his SeriusXM program “The Howard Stern Show.” He pointed out that he had evolved beyond the controversial material that happened almost three decades ago.

“The s— I did was [explicit] crazy,” Stern said per Variety.

“I’ll be the first to admit. I won’t go back and watch those old shows; it’s like, ‘Who is that guy?’ But that was my shtick, that’s what I did and I own it. I don’t think I got embraced by Nazi groups and hate groups. They seem to think I was against them, too. Everybody had a bone to pick with me.”

He added that he is now a changed man. He has changed his approach, life and the way he communicates, so he would not go about it the same way. Stern continued and attacked the POTUS’ son for picking on him.

“At the same point, I will say, it [explicit] distresses me that Donald Trump Jr. and Donald themselves won’t go into psychotherapy and change,” he said.

“Why not change the way you’re approaching things? Because wearing a mask is not a bad thing. Telling people the actual size of the crowd at your inauguration is okay. Attacking me during the coronavirus and Black Lives Matter is absolutely [explicit] crazy — concentrating on me. You want to concentrate on me and bully me and expose me, with all the TV shows I’ve done? They’re all out there.”

Stern stressed that there was nothing new about those issues against him and added that “there will never be another show crazier than mine.”

Meanwhile, several Twitter users also called out Trump Jr. because his dad appeared on Stern’s show several times in the past.

“C’mon Jr Trump I’ve heard your dad on the Stern show to many times. I don’t think you want to bring up some of the things he’s said,” one commented.

Another netizen also questioned Trump Jr. for bringing up the issue that happened almost 30 years ago.
