NBC Threatens Howard Stern After Jay Leno Remark

Posted Tuesday August 28, 2012 9:01 AM GMT

He has never been one to hold back and last week Howard Stern continued to let his audience know he was still not a fan of late night talk show host Jay Leno.

While doing his infamous radio show, the outspoken 58-year-old called Leno a "spineless maggot," which apparently led to harsh criticism from an NBC executive.

After the lecture, Howard spread the news saying, “I was laughing my a** off. I said, ‘Do not tell me to not talk about Jay Leno. I will f**king talk about Jay Leno for four hours if you tell me not to. I was done with Jay, now I’m all fired up again. F**k Jay!”

The "America's Got Talent" judge who now works for the same network as the 62-year-old "Tonight Show" host continued, "Take my job away from me. Who cares? Don’t f**kin’ threaten me, I don’t answer to anybody.”

Stern continued to slam Jay for the recent news about his pay cut for the good of his employees, saying, "Jay Leno is the biggest wuss on the planet… He’s a back-stabbing c*mbag.”
