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.

You know who he is. If not, you're either living under a rock, stupid, or didn't live through the '90s.

Due to his recent display of 'hateful' douchebaggery at L.A.'s Laugh Factory, he's been branded as a racist prick, Grand Wizard of the KKK, the second coming of Hitler, etc. I don't think he's racist. An insecure loser who deserves public ridicule, yes. He probably just felt trapped at the moment so he came out swinging with whatever he had.

Racial slurs are the lamest kind of insults. They don't attack the guy's personality, looks, or intelligence (all of the easy targets); they just attack his race. If calling a punk heckler the n-word is the only way you can stand up to him, you obviously lack the sharp wit for this line of work.
My friend called Michael Richards a hateful racist, but I knew he was just a has-been actor who couldn't even insult someone correctly.

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.
