Earlier this year we saw Ellen Degeneres being called out for not treating her employees with dignity. It came as a shock to many of her fans and her reputation worsened a lot as well. The same has happened to Howard Stern as well. In fact the first accusation that made the spotlight was “worse than Ellen DeGeneres,” as reported by the New York Post.

What made all his staff come out?

One of the lead engineers on Howard Stern’s show, Scott Salem, revealed that he wanted to open a go fund me page to raise money for his wife’s treatment as they found it hard to make the ends meet while battling with her NHL (non-Hodgkin’s lymphoma). When he asked for permission to his head, they said that they can only allow him to open the page if he agrees to not bring up the show’s name. 

Though he ended up raising enough money at the end, it was a tough process that could have been made smoother with Howard’s help. Aside from not donating a single penny for his own employee, Howard claimed that he was disappointed by the whole act. This just added salt to the wound and made his workers revolt.

“For the record, Scott never bad mouthed Howard to me. Prob cuz he’s afraid & classy. But I’m Unafraid & classless So I say. Shame on u Howard,” Stern’s longtime former sidekick Artie Lange tweeted in 2018. “Ask yourself why all of ur ex loyal servants hate u! Just sad.”

It has been claimed that Howard Stern has a whopping networth of over 500 million USD making it way easier for him to help people out financially without compromising his comfort. Let’s hope that such revolts make him a better person.
