Howard Stern has slammed Simon Cowell and America’s Got Talent by giving his thoughts on the NBC talent show.
He gave his opinion during his Sirius XM radio show on Monday, claiming that Cowell “orchestrated” the situation in an attempt to refresh the judging panel.
Since the firing of Gabrielle Union, controversy has struck that has led to many speaking out about the mistreating of the female cast members. Stern gave his verdict, saying, “He sets 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,”
He furthered, “What he manages to do on all his shows is he constantly replaces the hot chicks with hotter chicks and younger chicks … Howie [Mandel]’s doing a fine, serviceable job. Why don’t they change him? And why don’t they change Simon?” The 65-year-old went on to say the production of the show is “the ultimate example of a boys’ club.”
Last week, Union was let go from AGT after just 1 season, with rumours that she was “difficult” to work with appearing on social media. She raised concerns over an alleged racist joke made by former talk show host Jay Leno, which she was supposedly met with criticism by the producers of the talent show.
