*Radio jock Howard Stern and his sidekick Robin Quivers spent a considerable amount of time on Monday’s broadcast criticizing best actress Oscar nominee Gabourey Sidibe.
The two joked about her weight, with Stern referring to her as “the most enormous, fat black chick I’ve ever seen.” They also said Gabby’s supporters, including Oprah Winfrey, are delusional about the prospect that she’ll ever work in Hollywood again because of her size.
“She is enormous. Everyone’s pretending she’s a part of show business and she’s never going to be in another movie,” Stern said on his Sirius satellite show. “She should have gotten the best actress award because she’s never going to have another shot. What movie is she gonna be in?”
“And Oprah’s lying and saying you’re going to have a brilliant career,” said Robin.
“Oprah’s another liar, a filthy liar,” said Stern. “She’s telling an enormous woman the size of a planet that she’s going to have a career.” [Scroll down to listen.]
Stern was apparently unaware that Sidibe has already filmed the Showtime pilot “The C Word,” which stars Laura Linney as a teacher dealing with terminal cancer. Gabby plays one of her students.
The Oscar nominee also stars in the upcoming feature film “Yelling to the Sky” opposite Zoe Kravitz, the daughter of her “Precious” co-star Lenny Kravitz.
