America's Got Talent: Howard Stern Makes 7-Year-Old Kid Rapper Cry
One week into his stint as America's Got Talent's newest judge, radio shock jock Howard Stern is already making waves.
Bringing the show's audition tour to New York City Monday, Stern -- alongside seasoned judges Sharon Osbourne and Howie Mandel -- were treated to the vocal stylings of Philadelphia-based rapper Mir Money, 7.
Showing off his skills four years in the making, the pint-sized rapper had host Nick Cannon bopping along backstage to his rhymes, but Stern wasn't as into the performance. He quickly sounded his buzzer to signal his dissatisfaction, and Osbourne followed suit.
"You're a very nice young man -- you are very brave to get up there. No one likes hitting the 'X' on a 7-year-old," Stern, 58, reasoned as the contestant broke down in tears, prompting Cannon to declare the shock jock a "mean man."
Realizing how his actions hurt the contestant, Stern rushed on stage to apologize and give the child a hug. "You know what, Mir Money? I've met a lot of rappers -- I'm on the radio, I've interviewed them -- and none of them are as quite as good as you," Stern said as a consolation.
As the panel voted on whether to send Mir Money to the next round -- watch the clip above to see if he made it -- Stern questioned his role on America's Got Talent.
"This job is too rough for me, I don't really wanna do it anymore," he admitted. "I'm not cut out for this, man….I can't do it, man. I can't do it. Radio is for me, I made a mistake."
