Controversial radio show host Howard Stern is the latest celebrity on the cancel culture’s radar.

The host of “The Howard Stern Show” is under fire for a recently resurfaced video clip that shows him using blackface in a skit from the 1990s. The video, apparently from a skit with late actor Sherman Hemsley, aired in 1993 and apparently was aimed at mocking a performance that year involving actors Ted Danson and Whoopi Goldberg.

**Warning: Video contains graphic language and offensive material**

Stern became the target of outrage as the video clip began to circulate this week showing him playing the part of Danson, who sparked controversy at the time when he donned blackface at a 1993 Friars Club Comedy Roast. The actor, who had an affair with Goldberg, shocked many at the time with the offensive routine which used the N-word multiple times. It was revealed later that much of the racist material was written by Goldberg herself.

Stern’s skit, in which he made several racist jokes and repeatedly used the N-word with Hemsley playing the part of Goldberg, also included the voice of Stern’s longtime co-host, Robin Quivers, who asked at one point, “don’t you think you’re going to ruin your career this way?”

Stern called Quivers a “smelly” N-word in the clip and excused himself several times by joking, “Whoopi wrote that.”

Controversial filmmaker Tariq Nasheed shared the clip in a tweet which also included Stern’s recent appearance on “The View” when he claimed he had never used the offensive word.

The clip was retweeted and spread on social media where even Donald Trump Jr. weighed in:

Stern, who has been a vocal critic of President Donald Trump, recently attacked him for remarks about the coronavirus pandemic and announced that the president’s supporters should just take disinfectants “and drop dead.”

The controversial video of the 66-year-old shock jock was not the only time he donned blackface, as more shocking videos emerged. One showed Stern mocking Supreme Court Justice Clarence Thomas.

**Warning: Video contains graphic language and offensive material**

The liberal mob has been quick to pounce on those whose past reveals questionable and offensive choices, with more attention being given to racism in the wake of the death of George Floyd in Minneapolis. Last week Jimmy Fallon apologized on the air during “The Tonight Show” episode coming from his New York home, addressing a clip circulating online of him wearing blackface in an old “Saturday Night Live” sketch.

Late-night TV host Jimmy Kimmel also wore blackface on his Comedy Central series “The Man Show” in 2000 when he did an impersonation of basketball player Karl Malone.

With Stern becoming the latest celebrity to be called out on the issue, Twitter users noted that he would probably get a pass as others wondered “where is the outrage?”
