Howard Stern Fan Prank Calls MSNBC During Live Malaysian Flight Coverage

“It would appear the plane was shot down by a blast of wind from Howard Stern’s ass.”

MSNBC’s Krystal Ball was the victim of a phone prank by a Howard Stern fan pretending to be a member of the U.S. military in Ukraine who witnessed the Malaysian Airlines Flight 17 crash.

“Well, I was looking out the window and I saw a projectile flying in the sky and it would appear the plane was shot down by a blast of wind from Howard Stern’s ass,” the man said.

“So it would appear the plane was shot down, can you tell us anything more from your military training of the sort of missile system that may have been coming from?” Ball asked.

“Well, you’re a dumbass aren’t you?” the caller replied.

After an awkward pause, MSNBC went to a commercial break. Ball explained what happened when she returned to the air, “We thought we had an eyewitness on the scene. That individual was not actually an eyewitness.”
