Howard Stern Calls Jay Leno A ‘Spineless Maggot’, Upsets Fragile NBC

Just like in my dream... 

In a move that must have come as a total shock to the suits at NBC, America’s Got Talent‘s Howard Stern has spoken his mind and called fellow NBC-ian Jay Leno a “spineless maggot,” which is hilarious because it’s just so apt.

Here’s what the King of All Media had to say about the matter:

“I got a threatening kind of comment from one of the executives,” Stern told listeners on Tuesday, Aug. 21. “I was laughing my ass off. I said, ‘Do not tell me to not talk about Jay Leno. I will f—ing talk about Jay Leno for four hours if you tell me not to. I was done with Jay, now I’m all fired up again. F— Jay!”

Yes, yes. Fuck Jay.

It’s beginning to become clear that Anthony Bourdain and Howard Stern are kindred spirits when it comes to biting the hand that feeds them. Also, they kind of look alike. If Howard Stern starts railing on Emeril, though, I’m going to need to see both of them in the same room for confirmation they’re different people.
