On the Monday, November 28, episode of SiriusXM's The Howard Stern Show, the radio personality, 68, blatantly bashed Winfrey, 68, for appearing to flaunt her wealth across social media.
“Oprah’s not embarrassed by her wealth at all. She loves showing it off on Instagram," Stern claimed. "It’s f**king mind blowing when you follow her on Instagram, you see her estates, her gardens, the people who service her and you know…”
Cohost Robin Quivers, 70, quickly cut Stern off and quipped, “service her? She’s not a car."
"[She] kind of is," the America's Got Talent judge snubbed.
“She’s got servants and people cooking and it’s f**king wild. She knows how to be rich… She kind of likes to show it off, which is something I’m not comfortable with," Stern continued of the point he was trying to make. "I don’t think that people should show off their wealth."
Quivers continued to counter the Private Parts actor's jarring opinions, stating, “let’s put it this way, Oprah’s just showing you her life. She’s not showing off.”
Stern didn't seem persuaded in the slightest, as he continued, “well you gotta be a little self-aware and know that there are people struggling out there, Robin. You got to. You gotta kind of think about people who don’t have — to eat. You know what I’m saying? I mean, come on. You gotta be a little bit aware of this sh*t.”
“Well, if you don’t show your wealth, are they getting fed?” Quivers challenged in regards to the lack of correlation in Stern's claims.
“No, they are not,” the father-of-three admitted. “But you know, I make a good living and I’m having trouble watching Oprah. I go, wow. She’s got, she’s got — wow. Look what’s going on over there? Her estate is unbelievable. So like, when she goes shopping, she goes shopping in her backyard cause everything is growing back there. Like, there’s a farm back there.”
Despite slamming Winfrey's lavish lifestyle, Stern applauded the philanthropist's charity work, deeming her South African school — The Oprah Winfrey Leadership Academy For Girls — "impressive" and even complimented The Oprah Winfrey Show star's stunning features.
