NEW YORK (CBSNewYork) – Andy Dick used to be famous for being funny, but now he mostly just offends people and gets arrested.
He stayed true to this form on a recent appearance on the Greg Fitzsimmons’s radio show earlier this week, when he went on an anti-Semitic tirade about New York’s very own shock jock, Howard Stern.
According to RadarOnline.com, Dick said of Stern, “I have no problem with his big fat hook nose…and his money-grubbing, miserly Jewishness.”
Apparently the two used to be friends, but Andy is seriously peeved at Howard for hanging up on him during a call with Charlie Sheen last year, and later making fun of him with his co-host, Robin.
Stern, never one to turn the other cheek responded to Dick’s comment on-air.
“Yeah, well that’s where people like to go,” Stern said. “It kind of points out where people’s heads really are… And let me point this out there isn’t a moment in my life I don’t know that, that is what is in people’s heads…It always comes down to the Jew. And scumbags like Andy Dick, and I hadn’t heard this yet, but I know what’s in their heads anyway.”
His rebuttal continued, “I guess Andy’s downward spiral continues, and now he’s blaming me for all his problems … Stop looking for handouts you [expletive] wacko, stop waiting for the Jew to give you a job!”
Well, someone’s got to give the guy a job, maybe then he’ll stop finding himself in mug shots or removing his foot from his mouth.
Last year, Dick was arrested for sexual assault when he groped a bouncer’s genitals and kissed a male club-goer without consent. His most recent arrest, in May of this year, was for disorderly conduct fueled by drug consumption.
I guess his stint on ‘Celebrity Rehab’ didn’t work out so well. Dr. Drew, you’re losing your touch.
