    [h=1]Sick: Howard Stern prankster ‘Captain Janks’ impersonates police officer, lies about Aurora shootings[/h] Posted at 9:44 am on July 20, 2012 by Twitchy Staff | View Comments

    Just did a prank call to KUSA in Colorado. Anyone got it on tape?

    20 Jul 12


    Longtime Howard Stern fan/sidekick “Captain Janks†called in to KUSA-TV posing as police officer “Chief Oates.†He falsely claimed that a fifteenth victim died as a result of last night’s shootings.
    “He was actually very angry,†Janks said of the purported shooting victim, “because he lost on America’s Got Talent and Howard Stern voted him down.â€
    Howard Stern has long argued that prank calls such as this one serve a social purpose by exposing the media’s lax quality controls.
    A few Stern fans spoke out in support of Janks:

    Most Twitter users, however, felt the prank was in incredibly poor taste:

    Hopefully police will track down idiot who just made prank call about shooting in #aurora and placed on air and mumbled about Howard Stern.

    Captain Janks. Guy is a sociopath. “@The_MDA: Who prank calls a news station during something like this?â€

    Janks’ prank serves as a useful reminder that Stern’s lovable persona on America’s Got Talent is very different from his vulgar persona on radio. Stern can’t be too pleased with such tragedy-exploiting antics, but he can no more disown his entourage than he can disown his own shadow.

    If Howard blames Rush for the massacre then Howard has to take the blame for Janks. :bee:

    That was the pre-America's Judge Howie. Now, we have to respect mainstream TV and not make a mockery of anything.

    It will be another excuse why the ratings are down.

    Why is everyone remotely close to the show a "Howard Stern sidekick"?

    I love when they connect some dirtbag like Janks to Howard.
    I wish they would introduce Howard at the beginning of every AGT show as
    "That dirtbad Capt.Janks's pal HOWARD STERN!" :hhh:

    Howard has always loved it when his name was in the news because of something Janks did, but wimped out when it involved an especially sensitive subject. As soon as he got any criticism Howard would claim he had nothing to do with it and wasn't responsible for things his fans did. Of course, we all know Janks wouldn't pull this crap if Howard didn't encourage it by playing the calls, saying how great they are, and talking to Janks on the air. Hopefully stuff like this will come back to bite him in the ass and remind people he's not the person he's pretending to be on AGT.

    Yeah it really surprised me back when, after a decade or two of disclaiming any thing to do with these "independent" calls by Janks and others ("I don't ask them to do it!"), he ends up hiring two guys to do nothing BUT make prank call on the company dime. Just another fabled Stern "lie" I guess. I hope Janks at least got a few measly bucks along the way...

    Could you imagine the effect of those derisive Selena/Tejano music comments if it was recent and he made them now. No more adoring Pepitos and Joses (or B's) at the AGT stage door.

    This is a heartbreaking tragedy.

    That being said, who better to interject tasteless humor than caprtian janks

    way to go cap.
    The more awful the tragedy, the more innapropriate the call, the more i laugh.

    This is also could be an incedent where the ghost's of pre-evolved Howard's pass come back and haunt him

    I didn't even realize Janks was still doing this shit. I don't recall hearing shit about him for the last 15 years.

    He'll be more mad that Janks mentioned America's Got Talent in the prank call than mentioning howard. Much more to lose and more people to piss off at NBC.
