Howard Stern….Another Lawsuit

June 21, 2007

Howard Stern has been hit with yet another lawsuit, this time coming from the CEO of JEC Nutrition, a company whose product a member of Howard Stern’s show endorses.

Kelly Lockwood says he’s spent hundreds of thousands of dollars to advertise his weight loss product on Stern’s show, only to have his sales drop by 20 percent when Stern bashed his product on air. Lockwood is suing for $100 million.

The incident stemmed from a show where Crazy Cabbie came on the show to talk about how he’d lost 20 pounds using the project. Lockwood’s account of the on-air conversation between Stern and Crazy Cabbie:

“The first thing out of Howard’s mouth was, ‘Geez, Cabbie, you look fatter than ever,’ �? Lockwood said. “Then, [Stern’s sidekick] Ralph Circella says to Cabbie something like, ‘What the hell are you doing in here promoting a weight-loss product, you fat piece of [bleep]! Why don’t you lose 60 more pounds and then come back?’ This was horrendous for us. Our sales have dropped more than 20 percent. In seven minutes, he undid all the good work we did.�?

Hmmm…I’m not a fan of Howard Stern, but it simply sounds like radio banter to me. I would think anything Howard says wouldn’t be taken TOO seriously.
