HOLLYWOOD, CA – Two entertainment heavyweights are not playing nice and the feud is building steam!
Jamie Foxx and Howard Stern are in the midst of a feud that is reaching outside outlets. Stern and his minions have been known to prank call other shows and catch anchors off guard. Well, on Monday, Stern’s minion Captain Janks struck on Fox News and delivered a message regarding Jamie Foxx.
Captain Janks was introduced as “Richard Kendrowski,” a spokesperson for the “energy company” by anchor Shepard Smith. The segment revolved around the West Virginia mining accident.
Janks was able to say, “We’ve learned that Jamie Foxx is a c**t and that Howard Stern rules,” before being cut off. The interruption sparked rage in Smith and called it “unfortunate” and “disgusting.”
The feud goes back a few weeks and was the result of the shock jock’s comments about “Precious” star Gabourey Sidibe. Stern and his co-host Robin Quivers made remarks about her weight and how he would be shocked if she ever worked on another movie.
Foxx defended Sidibe on his radio show “Foxxhole” and his co-host said Quivers “has a lot in common with Precious, she was overweight, she was once black.”
Foxx went on to say, “I hope that this feud gets us hot, because Howard hasn’t really made a big splash in a long time.”
The comments did not sit well with Stern and enraged him. Stern fired back with, “I’m not … gonna sit here and take it and listen to some bull …. I’m going to end it now, because, you know what, I got a load of stuff on Jamie, which isn’t a lot of fun. Jamie’s not a friend of mine. I’ve had him on the show a couple of times. I don’t consider jim a friend anymore … I don’t dislike the guy, he’s a very talented guy.”
Stern has also made remarks to Foxx’s sexual preference. In a recent broadcast, Stern implied that Foxx was a closeted homosexual. “My guess is we’re probably not on the same team. I think he’s playing for a way different team. I don’t know what team he’s on but it ain’t my team.”
A lot of people say that I’m gay and that doesn’t bother me, because I could eat a pizza in a male shower and not feel anything because I’m secure with myself,” Foxx fired back. “And I’m not gonna take that, Coward Stern. I’m not gonna take that from a person who has chronic gonorrhea.”
The feud is slowly building towards a bursting point. Stay tuned to see this feud take its full shape.
