The former shock jock radio host turned “woke” sheep Howard Stern spoke out on his show on Tuesday to blast NBA star Kyrie Irving for refusing to get vaccinated against COVID-19.

“In terms of idiots, he’s gotta be the top idiot in the country right now,” Stern said, according to Yahoo News. “Guy’s got a chance as a young man to make millions of dollars, all he’s got to do is get vaccinated, but he doesn’t want to get vaccinated.”


This came after Irving was banned from participating in any team activities until he gets vaccinated against the coronavirus. Though he’ll lose around half of his $35 million salary for not getting the vaccine, he said last week that this is not about the money.

“I am doing what’s best for me,” he said, according to the Associated Press.

When Stern’s co-host Robin Quivers asked if he knows why Irving isn’t getting vaccinated, the radio host replied, “He doesn’t need a reason, just that he’s stupid. Because this guy’s got a history of being stupid, he’s one of these guys. He’s a flat-earther, too.”

Not stopping there, Stern proceeded to praise Irving’s team.

“I don’t know who runs the Brooklyn Nets, but I wish they were running the country,” Stern said. “I love this. Basically saying, ‘Listen, douchebag. You’ve got to do what is right, that’s it.'”

Stern regularly rants against the unvaccinated on his show, calling them “imbeciles” for “clogging” hospitals after refusing the shot and getting sick.

“Stay home. Die there with your COVID,” Stern recently said. “Don’t take the cure, but don’t clog up our hospitals with your COVID when you finally get it. Don’t bother with science. It’s too late. Go fuck yourself ― we just don’t have time for you.”

Stern can bash Irving all he wants to, but it doesn’t seem like the NBA star will be backing down anytime soon.

“The financial consequences, I know I do not want to even do that,” Irving said last week, according to ESPN. “But it is reality that in order to be in New York City, in order to be on a team, I have to be vaccinated. I chose to be unvaccinated, and that was my choice, and I would ask you all to just respect that choice.”


“I am going to just continue to stay in shape, be ready to play, be ready to rock out with my teammates, and just be part of this whole thing,” he added. “This is not a political thing; this is not about the NBA, not about any organization. This is about my life and what I am choosing to do.”

God bless you, Kyrie Irving.
