JEEZ! Howard Stern apparently has mixed feelings about Sam Smith. The SiriusXM radio host brutally insulted the singer on his show, calling him “fat” and “ugly,” before adding that he “loves” him for being the “male Adele."

It all happened during a countdown of the top songs, during which Stern didn’t hold back when it came to the Grammy winner’s hit “Stay With Me."

"You know what I like about the guy? He's an ugly motherf–ker. He's fat. Is he gay? He looks gay to me, not that anybody looks gay, but he does seem effeminate,” the host abruptly said.

Stern didn’t stop there, either. He went on to compliment him while still seriously insulting the “Latch" singer. 

“I like that he's chubby and gay. That's why I love him. He's one of those guys I feel like, he's really good but I feel like that will be his only hit song — beautiful voice,” he added. “That's how good that song is. He's fat and he's gay and little girls worship him. That's when you know you have a good song and a good voice.”

Despite using the worst words he could ever think of to describe Smith, Stern then admitted he’d “like to get him in here to congratulate him on beating the odds” before calling him the “male Adele.”

Naturally, Smith’s fans took to Twitter and upon hearing the news, Smith tweeted: “Can’t believe what I’ve just read” and later just simply, “Ignore."
