Radio host Howard Stern tore into NBA superstar Kyrie Irving over the guard’s refusal to receive a coronavirus vaccination, calling him “the biggest idiot in the country right now.” “Talk about stupid, there’s some people who are willing to walk away from millions of dollars and not get vaccinated,” Stern said on his nationally syndicated radio program on Tuesday. “They’re so stupid they’re putting their mouth where their money is.” “In terms of idiots, he’s got to be the top idiot in the country right now,” Stern said of Irving. “Guy’s got a chance as a young man to make millions of dollars, all he’s got to do is get vaccinated, but he doesn’t want to get vaccinated.”
