Howard Stern may be able to keep his comments on "America's Got Talent" tame enough for a family show, but he still hasn't mastered a skill to talk to a kid. In a Monday, May 21 episode of the talent show, the new judge made a 7-year-old boy cry when criticizing his performance.
The little rapper named Mir Money took the stage to audition, but Stern quickly hit the buzz. The shock jock had just started with his comment when tears began to run down the boy's cheeks. Realizing he had gone too far, the 58-year-old came onto the stage to console the boy and apologize.
"I'll fix everything," so Stern said while the crowd booed him. He then hugged the weeping boy and told him, "Mir Money, I'm sorry...You're a terrific young man. You are so brave." The radio personality later admitted, "This job is too rough for me, I don't really wanna do it anymore...I'm not cut out for this, man. I'm not cut out for it. I'm shaking man, I'm shaking. I can't do it, man. I can't do it."
