'AGT' Comedian Stands By Joke He Told That Offended Judge Heidi Klum

Heidi Klum was not impressed with comedian Usama Siddiquee‘s routine during the live show of America’s Got Talent this week.

However, the comedian is standing by the joke he made.

During his set, Usama made a joke about club music, saying that a long as there’s a good beat and a good drop, the DJ could say anything he wanted, even if it’s “women shouldn’t vote.”

“Beats are just too fun. When that beat drops, so does feminism,” he joked. “Some of you are skeptical, but I’ll prove it. Heidi, if I called you a tramp, you’d be like, ‘How dare you!’”

He argued that if there was a good beat going in between repeating the word “tramp,” she, nor others, would mind it. But she did.

“What did I think? I mean, I don’t know. I guess being called a tramp probably was my least uncomfortable part of the whole thing. But that’s just me,” Heidi said during the show in response to him. “But let’s see what America thinks!”

She added after the show that she did “think he’s a very good comedian. I just didn’t love his material so much today. It was just not for me.”

In a new interview with Entertainment Tonight, Usama is standing by the joke he made.

“All love to Heidi. I mean, she’s a star, she’s worked as a judge,” he shared in a video call. “I mean, you know, comedy creates reactions in people, it’s a very powerful kind of art form where you say something and people have visceral reactions to it.”

He added, “I don’t want to apologize… I stand by the joke.”

The results show for America’s Got Talent airs tonight, August 26 at 8/7c on NBC.
