The Controversy Surrounding Howie Mandel’s Joke

Howie Mandel, one of the beloved judges on America’s Got Talent, is facing criticism for making a joke about Sofia Vergara’s single status. This comment has drawn backlash from fans and critics alike, particularly because it comes just weeks after he made a similar remark.
