A person that simply cannot be happy for another person's success. So rather than be happy they make a point of exposing a flaw in that person.Howard Stern, a popular radio host, whose show was dropped from Clear Channel radio in 2004 due to its explicit nature, recently decided to "hate" on Actress & Oscar Nominee Gabourey Sidibe. He and his other cast mates joked about her appearance as well as her inexperience as an actress, and dubbed these as reason as to why she will never be successful in Hollywood. Here is an excerpt from his show.....
"There's the most enormous, fat black chick I've ever seen. 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. "She should have gotten the Best Actress award because she's never going to have another shot. What movie is she gonna be in?"He also continued to say that, she was on of the reasons why currently successful actors/actresses are not getting work and/or new movie roles. Sidibe, skipped school one day to audition for this role, she made each cut until she was finally offered the part. She now will forever be addressed as an Oscar Nominee (until she in fact wins an Oscar, which could happen). Stern, played Oprah's entire Oscar introduction of Sidibe, and critized every attempt Oprah made, to describe Sidibe as the new face of Hollywood.
You can hear the entire radio footage on my girl's website http://www.divadishtalk.com/ , just click the link and search for the story (as well as other current entertainment news).
Now if Howard Stern doesn't deserve the award for "Hater of the Year" so far, then I don't know who does. It's one thing to think that Sidibe did not deserve to be nominated, but its another thing to suggest she completely lacks talent due to her appearance and her inexperience. How many movie roles did Jennifer Hudson play before she won her Oscar? NONE & she was only a former American Idol winner, before she began acting.
Don't get me wrong, everyone is entitled to their opinions, however the attempt to expose what you believe a person's flaws to be, in the midst of stating your opinion is just HATEFUL. I wonder what "hate" Stern possess with himself that makes him so compelled to state the obvious in such a hurtful manner.
On the other hand, I believe Stern just opened the door for Sidibe to prove him wrong. All of his listeners (who probably did not see "Precious", just to keep it real), may just go out and buy/rent the movie to see if his claims are relevant. Heck, they as well as Sidibe's current fans, will be eager to see her next piece of work, to see if she truly has that STAR potential. And when she wins that Oscar, I hope she adds Howard Stern to her acceptance speech!!!!
