Dana White storms out of Howie Mandel’s podcast in the first 30 seconds

Dana White storms out of Howie Mandel’s podcast in the first 30 seconds

Howie Mandel was very confused

Dana White apparently isn't a fan of podcasts anymore.

The UFC president recently starred on Howie Mandel's show, Howie Mandel Does Stuff, but his feature was extremely short-lived.

Gushing about his podcast guest, America's Got Talent judge Mandel began: "We can't thank you enough for being here. [...] You are not only an amazing businessman, you are an inspiration. You are a philosopher."

He went on: "The way you do business, the way you conduct your business and your friendships and media is... I'm jealous. But Dana, I can't thank you enough for being here."

Despite being showered with compliments, White didn't stick around for much longer.

"Thank you for the kind words. I appreciate it. I am so f***ing tired of doing podcasts," he replied.

"I'm literally done with them. I'm not doing any more podcasts."

The business man proceeded to take his headphones off and leave the room, leaving Mandel, his other podcast guest Ginger Billy, and his co-host (and daughter) Jackelyn Shultz gobsmacked.

A clip of the surreal moment has since been widely shared online, and people have a lot of questions.

One person asked: "Why did he even show up then?

"That was very awkward," said another.

"Seems like there is more going on than meets the eye."

But others applauded White for walking off and defended his actions.

Someone wrote: "We all have that moment in life where we regret showing up. This could be his moment!"

"He thought he had one more in him but changed his mind last second," another suggested.

A third went on: "If you go on a business road show, you'll find sometimes you're so f**king tired that you just want to go home."

Howie Mandel was gobsmacked.

Different podcast listeners noted that Mandel is a comedian and insisted that White's walkout was a 'bit' between the pair.

"It’s a bit," someone penned to X, while another suggested it was all scripted.

"They probably just finished filming Dana’s Episode and did a little sketch afterwards," a different person wrote.

Neither parties have officially commented on the ordeal but, sharing a snippet of his podcast to his Instagram Story, Mandel tagged White and asked: "Is It something I said? New podcast out now."

Both Mandel and White's representatives have been contacted for comment.
