Bullying is never a good thing and radio host, Howard Stern not only slammed the 22-year-old’s looks but also his sexual orientation. But Sam’s response was priceless.
Howard Stern, 62, is known to make some incredibly jerky comments but when he dissed Sam Smith, 22, for being “ugly” and “gay”, even Sam was caught off guard. But it takes rising above in situations like these to prevail and that’s exactly what Sam did. When he heard the news he immediately took to Twitter.
Howard Stern Brutally Insults Sam Smith: ‘He’s An Ugly Motherf-cker’
Howard actually made fun of Sam for being gay!
“Do you know what I love about that guy?” Howard said. “He’s an ugly motherf–ker. He’s fat. And I love it. You know what, he looks gay to me. Not that anybody looks gay but he does seem effeminate.”
Below is how Sam responded to the outrageously mean comments:
But that’s not all Howard said, he also slammed his musical ability: “I feel like that [“Stay With Me”] will be his only hit song. I’d like to get him in here and congratulate him on beating the odds.”
Maybe Howard would like to eat his words because Sam was nominated for not one, not two, not three, but SIX Grammy Awards this year. So take that, Howard.
We are impressed that Sam, who is almost 40 years younger than Howard, didn’t retaliate.
HollywoodLifers, what do you think of Howard’s comments?
