Howard Stern Defends Sidibe Remarks by Claiming ‘She’s Going to Kill Herself’

“I kinda don’t see a difference between what our Artie [Lange] did — Artie tried to kill himself — and I feel like this girl, in a slower way, but nevertheless the same outcome will be that she’s going to kill herself.” —Howard Stern on his show today, in reference to Precious’ Gabourey Sidibe. This was his “explanation” for tearing into the Oscar-nominated actress yesterday on his show, when he called her “the most enormous fat black chick I’ve ever seen,” and said she should have won Best Actress “because she's never going to have another shot … what movie is she gonna be in?"
