PIZZA FEARS NO ONE ... especially not a group of angry Howard Stern-hating parents -- which is why Pizza Hut is refusing to pull its advertisements from the controversial new season of "America's Got Talent."

A rep for the Pizza company tells TMZ, Pizza Hut has no plans to remove its ads from the show -- despite the Parents Television Council clamoring for sponsors to yank their support over the show's new judge ... shock jock Howard Stern.

The rep tells us, "Pizza Hut strives to maintain the highest standards of quality and excellence in our communications to the public. Our advertisements are no exception, and are designed to draw attention to our products and appeal to a broad audience."

The rep adds, "Unfortunately, we may not always success in generating a positive impact on every guest, and we apologize if our methods offend some."

Pizza power.

Stern is desperate to be talked about again, he virtually fell of the map and became yesterdays news so he will just about say anything negative and awful to ruffle up feathers and get his phony schtick back on the map, He is a big fake and a money whore and the block face submissive fool he is married to is in no way a stunning model type

It makes sense Pizza Hut would support Stern. They're both oily, fake, and nasty.

How long are we supposed to believe celebrities' turn 50 but their hair stays 20? Stern, Robert Plant, etc., aren't they all in wigs? Ridiculous looking, imho. Who wears their hair the same way for 30 years? I can't help wondering what they'll look like in 30 more years, old men sporting a fro.

Someone should go on Stern's Show and confront him about his claim that he does not dye his hair - Ask him to take a few follicles so they can be tested in a lab. I'll guarantee that he is colouring his hair.

The PTC are out of there minds I never once saw them get this up set when Jerry Springer was the host of America's Got Talent and he had Shock TV with the Jerry Springer Show, Howard Stern already said that he will be good and will not do anything like he does on his talk radio show, So the PCT should watch the show and give it a try and while there at it order a Larger Pizza from Pizza may I suggest the 10 dollar box meal.

I think it makes for a great trio; Howard Stern stinks, Pizza Hut stinks, and America's Got Talent stinks. So if you don't like it don't watch. Thats why we have that wonderful little gadget called the remote.
