TheDailyBeast: Banned Talk Show Guests

Gilbert Gottfried

When Gilbert Gottfried made an appearance on a rival radio show, Howard Stern banned the comedian from his program—by inviting him on to talk about it. At length. “Oh OK,” Gottfried laughed when told he was banned, “I won’t come on.” But years later, when Gottfried was fired for tweeting jokes about the Japanese tsunami, Stern came to his defense. “When the Aflac people hired him to be the duck, they knew... his humor is offensive,” Stern said on his show. “There’s no reason for him to be fired. But to be fired for offensiveness... he should never have been hired then.”
