Howard Stern’s been shocking the world for a living for a long, long time, but on Tuesday, he nearly lost his mind tearing tennis great Novak Djokovic to shreds. The tennis player, he raged, should be banned from, not just the Australian Open but tennis in general, for not being vaccinated.
Ranked No. 1 in the world tennis, Djokovich is currently embroiled in controversy in Australia, where he hopes to compete in the Australian Open without being vaccinated. He’s being investigated by the Australian Border Force.
“That f---nut Djokovic. What a f---ing asshole.
“The first I’ve heard of this guy is that he doesn’t want to get his vaccine. They should throw him right the f--- out of tennis. That’s it. Goodbye.”
Well, guess what, Howard? Djokovic already had COVID-19. How many more times does Stern think he’ll catch it without the vaccine that needs multiple booster shots to actually finish the job and prevent COVID-19 forever?
Wait, there’s more hate in Stern, enough for scores of unvaccinated athletes:
“He could be lying (about having had COVID-19). He’s a douchebag. He’s a f---nut.”
Get the straight jacket out. Stern also demanded Djokovic should stay away from people and be kicked out of professional tennis, too. That’s because he doesn’t supposedly have any concern for anyone else. When it’s his own personal health at stake to the possibility of a bad reaction to the vaccine.
The suggestion that unvaccinated people, like smokers, should avoid people almost squeezed an ounce of common sense out of Stern. But not quite.:
“That’s like saying smoking is a private decision,” Stern said. “Well, that’s true. But don’t smoke in my face, f---nut. What a dummy. Just a big dumb tennis player.
“If you wanna talk tennis, I’ll talk to you. Other than that you should shut your mouth.”
Stern has been just as out of control in discussing two other great unvaccinated athletes. He demanded the NFL boot Green Bay quarterback Aaron Rodgers right out of the league. He demanded the federal government to deal with the Brooklyn Nets' basketball player Kyrie Irving.
