Howard Stern Mocked for Whining that Black NBA Players Don’t Like Him

'I’d like to think it’s a white thing, not my personality. I hope it’s racial...'

(Headline USA) Radio host Howard Stern complained this week that “black players” on the New York Knicks don’t speak to him when he’s sitting courtside, claiming their behavior is offensive.

“The Knicks have been very kind to me,” Stern said on his satellite radio show.

“They put me right in the front row,” he continued. “That’s when I knew I was famous. When I, you know, I have courtside, they put me courtside, and the black players won’t come over and say hello to me, but they go over to Spike Lee.”

Stern went on to say that players will not acknowledge him at all, even when he is sitting next to other celebrities.

“I’ll be sitting next to Tracy Morgan or Chris Rock—you know, they seat you where they seat you,” he said.

“And a lot of times when I’m there, I’m next to Tracy Morgan, who is so funny,” Stern continued. “And he’s sitting there and like, couple of the players will come over. They, like, give him that bro shake and stuff. And I’m like—these guys should hug me, too.” 

Stern went on to add that he “grew up in a black neighborhood,” but still gets “ignored.”

When asked if he believes the Knicks players have “a racial thing” against him, since he is white, Stern suggested that this was the case.

“Maybe they don’t like me. I don’t know,” he said. “I’d like to think it’s a white thing, not my personality. I hope it’s racial. That’s all.”

Stern complained that “fame to me is very important … I like people to recognize me.”

“I want them to talk to me,” he said of the Knicks players. “I want them to come up and go, ‘Hey Howard, fan of the show’ or something. I don’t get that. And, you know who comes up to me sometimes — the referees. White guys and black guys, they’ll come up to me, white referees and black. Like, ‘Hey, Howard, hey.’ But yeah, a lot of the white referees. So I’m like, ‘Oh, is everything racial now? Can I get a shout-out from some of the players?”

Critics blasted Stern, calling him an arrogant “idiot.”
