Howard Stern says he is done using anti-Gay language on air

by Shaun Knittel - SGN Associate Editor

Howard Stern, host of the long-running The Howard Stern Show, has said that he intends to curb any anti-Gay remarks on air.

The self-described 'King of All Media' admits he sometimes slips and uses the word 'fag,' but he says he was taken aback by how much outspoken comedian Lisa Lampanelli recently used it on his radio show.

Stern has said he dislikes the word because he thinks Gay people are too often 'bullied' and 'abused.'

'I know Lisa's kidding around and all that, but I've tried to change my thoughts about that word. I've tried to stop using it. & I'd rather not use it,' he said when a caller asked if he was bothered by Lampanelli's excessive use of the word on his Sirius XM radio show.

'I have a tremendous compassion for people that are homosexual. I feel that they are bullied and abused in our society. They take such shit just because they like to be with the same sex, and it's so absurd to me,' he said. 'It must be a terrible thing to be exposed to that kind of hatred and be hated just because of your sexuality.'

Although it has become commonplace for many entertainers to vocalize their support for LGBT equality, it is particularly notable in Stern's case because he maintains an audience of nearly 20 million listeners. In other words, when Stern speaks, millions are listening - literally.
