Howard Stern Says NBC Threatened Him For Calling Leno 'Spineless Maggot'

Howard Stern says he was threatened by an NBC executive after he called Jay Leno a 'spineless maggot' over the 'Tonight Show' paycuts on his Sirius XM radio show.

"I got a threatening kind of comment from one of the executives," says Stern, who is also a judge on 'America's Got Talent'. "I was laughing my ass off."

"I said: 'Do not tell me to not talk about Jay Leno. I will f--king talk about Jay Leno for four hours if you tell me not to. I was done with Jay, now I'm all fired up again. F--k Jay!"

"I love my job on AGT. I love working for the people at NBC, they've been nothing but wonderful. But I don't answer to anybody."

"Everybody knows that. That's part of the game. And that's why I'm a great f--king judge. I will tell people if they suck."

Stern called Leno a 'spineless maggot' after he mocked NBC and its parent company over the cuts once they became public, including the fact that Leno had taken a paycut to save the jobs of other 'Tonight Show' staffers.

"Dude, just keep it to your f--king self," said Stern.
