Howard Stern has never backed down from voicing his opinion. On Monday, the outspoken radio host took to ”The Howard Stern Show” to voice his support for Gabrielle Union following her controversial termination from ”America’s Got Talent.”
During Monday’s episode of the SiriusXM show, Stern took aim at AGT’s judge and creator, Simon Cowell, accusing him of being the one to greenlight Union’s firing from the popular competition show. Stern provided insight into how Cowell selects the judges.
“He sets it up that the men stay no matter how ugly [the men] are, no matter how old they are, no matter how fat they are, no matter how talentless they are.” Stern alleged. English television personality, Piers Morgan, was on the show seasons 1 through 6 while David Hasselhoff was there from seasons 1 through 4. Both Cowell and Howie Mandel will return as judges for the upcoming season 15, alongside singer Leona Lewis, who has just been announced as Union’s replacement. This move appears to confirm Stern’s claims that Cowell often “replaces the hot chicks with hotter chicks and younger chicks.”
Stern’s revelations come only a day after Cowell’s company, Syco Entertainment, released a statement in response to Union’s allegations, “We remain committed to ensuring a respectful workplace for all employees and take very seriously any questions about workplace culture.”
Union has heavily criticized NBC, and ”America’s Got Talent” for allegedly terminating her after she was vocal about the toxic workplace, including instances of racism and sexism.
