So, Kramer goes on racist tirade at comedy show

Kind of disappointing, but then again I never really knew the character of the guy (Michael Richards) anyway.

LOL, I'm sure he'll say he was intoxicated or something, that he didn't really mean it, and he'll check into rehab. That seems to be the excuse these days w/celebrities.

But seriously, this surprised me. He's going to have to work really hard to salvage what was left of his career.

Nope, he was sober. Richards is fucked. Even his buddy Seinfeld can't help him.

He tried to last night on Letterman. It seemed a bit set up.

Kind of disappointing, yes, but we didnt exactly hear what all was said to him first to get him so upset. No excuse for calling the N word and all that but I dont hate the guy because of this.

No, he definitely wasn't sober. As Rick James says, "cocaine's a hell of a drug".

I watched the apology, and the thing that struck me most was that people in the Letterman crowd were laughing during it. Not just one guy, either - it sounded like an entire section of people randomly found something funny about it that I didn't see.

I'd post the video, but it seems Youtube has taken them all down thanks to CBS.

I hear ya Sicy. I don't hate the guy, but he made a dreadful career move. Did you check out what he said at youtube yet? The hecklers didn't say much, but Richards isn't really used to heckling, so he overreacted.

I think people were laughing because they thought it was a bit. Letterman tapes late in the afternoon and it's likely that most of the audience had no idea what happened since this video only came out yesterday. If you had no idea what was going on, then you assume that hey it's Letterman with Seinfeld and Kramer - it's got to be a bit.

Wow, I'm glad you were able to see he was on coke from that guy's camera phone? I bow to your talents.

The audience at Letterman were laughing when he used the term afro-american.

They're both still up at tmz.com

I can't believe that some people are shrugging this off! Heckling is part of the stand-up comedy scene, and if you can't handle it, you're in the wrong business. Comics that handle it with razor-sharp wit and sarcasm to bring the heckler down a peg or two are one thing, but this is unreal!

Richard's words are every bit as ugly and despicable as Gibson's anti-Semetic tirade a while back. Thank goodness society doesn't accept this white supremacy bullshit anymore. I hope what little is left of his career implodes on him.

I agree. And he didn't just use the n word, he also made that reference to lynching. Maybe he was so angry he wanted to lynch them too - or merely hate and humiliate them with such a horrific reference.
