Kramer goes berserk! Richards who is only known for playing the eccentric neighbor Cosmo Kramer on the sitcom Seinfeld was performing at the Laugh Factory in West Hollywood on Friday night when he was heckled by an audience group that included two black men. Richards' went into a verbal rampage, unleashing a string of racial slurs and profanities.
Patron "That was uncalled for!"
Richards "Well that's what you get for interrupting a white man!
Richards apologized and said it was anger not hatred that was behind his tirade.
Nope, not buying that one for a second.
But, for more than the obvious reasons, he makes me sick. I enjoyed watching Seinfeld. Now there is a taint to it that I don't think I can get over.
You know, like seeing the chef in your favorite restaraunt poking around in his nose or leaving the restroom without washing his hands. UGH! Just ruins it forever.
No matter what, now whenever Richards comes sliiiding in Jerry's door I won't laugh, I'll wince.
Bad timing too, since another Seinfeld DVD installment was set to be released. It is unfortunate for Jerry and Larry David and Julia Louis Dryfus and Jason Alexander and the rest, that the legacy that was Seinfeld the sitcom, will be tarnished because Richards has a screw loose. And assuming they aren't all closet racist, they should all sue him.
