It is noted that Howard Stern said the critics calling him “woke” are actually paying him a compliment via Media Ite.
Stern recently talked about the matter on the Monday edition of The Howard Stern Show. Stern played a clip from a fan’s YouTube video in which the fan stated that he’s a big fan of Stern but said the radio host had gone “woke.”
“I hear that a lot that I’m not good anymore because I’m woke,” Stern said.
“By the way, I kind of take that as a compliment, that I’m woke. I’ll tell you how I feel about it. To me the opposite of woke, is being asleep. And if woke means I can’t get behind Trump, which is what I think it means, or that I support people who want to be transgender or I’m for the vaccine, dude call me woke as you fucking want,” Stern declared.
“I’m not for stupidity, you know. I ran out Friday morning. I was over at CVS. Thank you, CVS. I went over there 9 a.m. and got myself that new vaccine for Covid. Fucking science. This fucking country is so great,” Stern celebrated.
In addition to his, Stern stated that he loves being woke.
“I am woke, motherfucker, and I love it. I want to be awake. I want to read legitimate news sources. Here’s how woke I am. I believe the election was not rigged,” Stern said of the 2020 election. “I am woke. I think that’s a compliment.”
