HOWARD STERNS responds to BLACKFACE controversy

Howard Stern responded to the controversy over a clip from a 1993 television special where he appeared in blackface and made racist remarks. The sketch was part of a New Year’s Eve special where Stern and his co-host Robin Quivers were making fun of Ted Danson who appeared at a Friar’s Club Roast for his girlfriend at the time, Whoopi Goldberg in blackface. “The sh*t I did was f***ing crazy,” Stern said on his SiriusXM radio show. “I’ll be the first to admit. I won’t go back and watch those old shows; it’s like, who is that guy? But that was my shtick, that’s what I did and I own it.” Stern also added that if he had to do it over again he wouldn’t have worn blackface. 

Liza Minnelli denied a report that she was helping Prince Harry “find his feet in Los Angeles. The British tabloid The Sun published a story that the Broadway legend had formed a friendship with the former royals after their move to California. Minnelli shared a link to the article on her Facebook page and wrote, “While I wish them well, I have never met Prince Harry and Meghan. Any statement to the contrary is a complete fabrication.”
