Gotham Gossipist: Howard Stern Brushes Off Andy Dick’s Anti-Semitic Remarks

Shock Jock Not Offended By Being Called 'A Money-Grubbing' Jew

By Kimberly Rae Miller

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, 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.

    is it not a commentary on our current culture and mores that people like these two, along with so many other non-talents, are the raved about celebrities of our times? a view of the faces of so many of those attending the events featuring these 15 minute of fame types is an indication of the vapidness and shallowness that pervades our idea of entertainment.

      Howard Stern’s “15 minutes of fame” have lasted him over 30 years and earned him over half a billion dollars over the span of his career. lol

    US National Slavery Museum can use Charity Search Engines to pay property tax bill.
