Howard Stern Destroys ‘Top Idiot in the Country’ Kyrie Irving Over His Anti Vaccine Stance

Howard Stern is not a fan of Kyrie Irving.

Stern has heard Kyrie Irving’s reason for not getting vaccinated and is not buying it, calling the NBA star “the top idiot in the country.” Irving claims he isn’t getting vaccinated to stand up for those who’ve lost their jobs due to vaccine requirements at their places of employment.

“I’m rocking with all those who have lost their jobs to this mandate and I’m rocking with all those who chose to be vaccinated and are choosing to be safe as well,” Irving told nearly 100,000 Instagram Live viewers last week.

Among those people are New York-based talk show host Howard Stern who went hard after Kyrie on his SiriusXM show.

“Talk about stupid, there’s some people who are willing to walk away from millions of dollars and not get vaccinated. They’re so stupid they’re putting their mouth where their money is,” Stern began his rant.

“He’s my favorite dude who’s putting his money where his mouth is,” added Stern, talking about Irving. “In terms of idiots, he’s got to be the top idiot in the country right now.

“Guy’s got a chance as a young man to make millions of dollars, all he’s got to do is get vaccinated, but he doesn’t want to get vaccinated.”

Stern then brought up Kyrie’s take on the Earth being flat.

“This guy’s got a history of being stupid,” Stern answered. “He’s one of those guys who is a flat-earther too. And he doesn’t know anything, his mind works in a very strange way. He says, ‘I can’t figure out gravity, so it doesn’t exist.’”

“I don’t know who runs the Nets, but I wish they were running the country,” Stern added, talking about the team’s decision to sideline Irving until he gets the shot. “I love this. Basically saying, ‘listen douchebag, you’ve got to do what is right.’”

Irving is set to earn $34 million this season, but  it’s looking like a lost season if he doesn’t get vaccinated.

Hard to imagine he won’t regret all these decisions one day. You never want to be on Howard’s show for the wrong reasons.
