Howard Stern Responds to Elle MacPherson’s Anti-Semitic Remark — “It Was Weird”

Written by , Posted in General

Howard Stern responded to Elle MacPherson’s anti-Semitic comment today, saying, “It did strike me as odd. I didn’t get offended by it. But it did take me aback.” Stern said that he “felt like [he] was back in high school and one of the popular girls was making fun of [him].” Robin Quivers then chimed in, saying, “Yes, she was very mean-girlish.” Though I appreciate Stern’s effort to be kind to MacPherson by downplaying the issue, I still maintain that it was an anti-Semitic remark. When you talk about cultural stereotypes with a negative undertone, you tread on thin ice, especially when it’s not your religion your discussing. And furthermore, she mentioned his religion one too many times for it to be ignored. I’m not suggesting she’s a bigot. But she needs to be more responsible.

    Dear Dishmaster,
    Why in the world would you NOT say that MacPherson is a bigot???  I listened to Stern’s interview in realtime, and I was shocked at how focused she was on his religion.  She just was not able to see beyond the fact that he is Jewish.  It’s as if she walked into Stern’s studio completely and only focused on the fact that he is a Jew.  This is not a coincidence.  This MacPherson character is obviously an ignorant moron.  I mean, this is a person who has traveled the world as a model.  Correct???  You would assume that she encountered many different types of cultures (including religions), and she probably has.  Unfortunately, she has been unable to learn from other cultures, and as a result, has failed to learn how to respect other cultures (meaning others in general).  This washed-up piece of garbage Jew-hater whose only claim to fame is being one of the wives of a man who was once married to another woman who appeared on The Real Housewives of New York is a pathetic excuse for a human being and is the prime example of the definition of unintelligent.
