We all know that Howard Stern is a shock jock but he really surprised us when he said some harsh things about Sam Smith.
“You know what I like about the guy, he's an ugly mother f*****, he’s fat, and I love it…Is he gay? He looks gay to me, not that anybody looks gay but he does seem a feminine,” Howard said during a radio countdown on Sirius XM.
In a very odd conversation, Howard continued to insult Sam while also complementing him on his voice and music.
“I like that he's chubby and gay, that's why I love him. He's one of those guys, he's really good but I feel like that will be his only hit song,” he said. And speaking about his latest hit, “I Know I’m Not the Only One” Howard added, “that’s how good that song is, he's fat and he's gay and little girls worship him, that's when you know you have a good song and you have a good voice.”
The criticism must have gotten back to the British crooner because he reacted with two posts on Twitter.

And re-tweeted a message from Bonnie Hunt, who, like many of his fans, came to his support.
@samsmithworld Sam, you never let all the amazing reviews go to your head, Pls never let negative remarks go to your heart. You are loved— Bonnie Hunt (@BonnieHunt_real) January 25, 2015
On Monday, Sam posted a suggestive selfie with a message for all the haters.
