Michael Richards and Kramer are two different people, don't slander the one when you mean the other. :tears:
This is no big deal.
Here is the video.
Holy....wow.....I'm damn near speechless. He's totally out of line in that video. I'm amazed he didn't get his ass beat. Severely. He probably will now that it's leaked out to the 'net. And he'd deserve it, too.
Was he drunk?
Drunk with powah!!!!!!
I really hope that he doesn't get shot.
Okay so I don't get it...what did he do wrong?
He used the N-word.
He cheated the people who paid good money to see his comedy routine by diverting from it to go off on some BS rant and personal vendetta. Poor showmanship. He needs to die.
I believe Lackey was doing a racist skit. Keep up, people
Sarah Silverman uses the N-word and it's cute
I just watched the video "that was uncalled for" ...what a big ***** that guy was.
Revenge is given in the market place by people not hiring him to do another comedy routine.
Also, he's hardly the first comedian to get upset at the audience and go off on a tangent.
no, the heckler cheated the people who paid good money to see his comedy routine. How would you like it if someone went down to where you work and taunted you? No one goes to where you work and slaps the d*ck out of your mouth.
OH. MY. GOD.
I kind of agree. The heckler should have been able to take his own medicine.
I dunno if this means he's racist. Jerry Seinfeld is Jewish, after all. I think he lost all good judgement, though. The guy who heckled him was black and he probably had a bad day and wanted to really insult the guy back. Does it make it right? No. But I certainly don't think this makes him 100% racist, especially not since we all are racist to certain degrees. Everyone is, in every race, we all have reservations about other races.
Which is sad, because his career will really be over now. One bad day and a loss of judgement will ruin his life. All people will see is that he's racist. Being racist and saying racist things are two different things. Racist means you act on it constantly, and if he was racist, he wouldn't have worked with Jerry Seinfeld for nine years and be friends with him.
Now, the "This is what happens when you inturrupt the white man" comment does indicate he probably doesn't think much of Blacks, though. Unless he was being sarcastic, but who knows? If your sarcasm isn't obvious, you shouldn't use it.
The news is failing to report that the following night at the Laugh Factory, he apoligized and claims to have made reparations. I hope he did, and at the very least, I hope he learns a lesson from his poor decision.
As for the guy being able to 'take his own medicine,' first off, he didn't make a racist comment at Richards. Second of all, Richards' initial "50 years ago, you'd have been" bit should have been as far as he went if at all. That wasn't racist so much as it was, unfortunately, true. He could have salvaged himself from just that. If you want to heckle back a heckler, you don't resort to race, though. That's contrary to the point and a recipie for disaster.
People are allowed to hate black people and not hate Jews.
They're also allowed to pretend to like Jews if they want to be an actor. it's kind of encouraged.
They're also inclined to supress any Jew haitng tendencies if they're getting paid millions of dolalrs.
Hey, YOU are the one who's always complaining about sore knees but no one MAKES you pick up extra shifts in the glory hole, muthaf**ka!
Well, assuming doesn't make it true. Yes, we can assume that he dealt with working with Seinfeld just to get money, but for nine years? And why would he bother to still be friends with him? That doesn't earn him any money.
You can assume all you like, but until he goes off on an anti-semetic tirade, there's nothing to say that he's racist toward Jews.
What a great plot this would be for a two-hour Seinfeld special.
Those are just flaws in your post, not things I believe.
