    Let’s also not forget how his show and it’s callers contributed to Dana Plato’s suicide.

    I remember hearing him on air back in the late 90’s. He was mocking a call in who had cervical cancer. I figured he was an asshole and never gave him much thought. This in my head really cements him as one.

    This isn’t as bad as other things he’s done. He is unfunny and mean. His guests are not in on his jokes. Humiliating people for no reason on a live set does not make for good entertainment. What I’ve seen on his show is him ridicule a naked woman and ridicule that handicapped guy Beetlejuice. It’s so weird and uncomfortable to watch.

    I’ve loved adult sitcoms, cartoons, and standup for as long as I can remember, no matter how profane or taboo, but I’ve never seen a single redeeming quality throughout Stern’s work. I feel like his show only offers shock value. It’s for edgy teenagers that giggle about swastikas and rape. Nothing about it is cool, interesting, or humorous. I swear his fans are a different species.
