Howard Stern Calls Sam Smith A Ugly Fat, Effeminate One-Hit Wonder—And That's What He Likes About Him

Shock jock Howard Stern hit Sam Smith with some nasty labels on a recent broadcast. "You know what I like about that guy? He's an ugly mutherfucker," said Stern. "He's fat and I love it."

The singer may have caught wind of Stern's comments, as he took to Twitter with a couple of cryptic messages:

More direct was his retweet of a message from actress Bonnie Hunt:

@samsmithworld Sam, you never let all the amazing reviews go to your head, Pls never let negative remarks go to your heart. You are loved — Bonnie Hunt (@BonnieHunt_real) January 25, 2015
