An actor who unfortunately made racist rants at a comedy club, and now has to suffer rehab and all those stupid things. The things he said were morally wrong, but it was obvious that he was simply angry at those men, and when we are angry we say the things that we think will hurt them the most. He clearly has anger management problems, but it's unfair for men like Al Sharpton to be trying to completely destroy him for it.
Wow that was stupid of Michael Richard to say the things he said. Now Michael Richards can't convince anyone that he may not be a racist.

a stellar comic who was the real star of the TV show Seinfeld. After the 1995 - 1996 season producers de-emphasized his character Cosmo Kramer and the show began its decline to Suck City. He now gives comedy gigs but recently made unfunny, racist jokes and hurled a racist epithet at a black audience member. He shit his pants and maybe destroyed his career that night, in Mel Gibson fashion. It's a shame this happened because Richards was such a trip on TV. Now he's revealed his true colors. Really sad.
Michael Richards fucked up big time that night in the Las Vegas casino. What he said was extremely stupid.
