It seems that Michael Richards is going on the any publicity is good publicity rule. What an idiot. Maybe he and Mel Gibson can start a USO show or something… I found this on the Web (apparently he was being heckled)…
“Shut up! Fifty years ago we’d have you upside down with a f**king fork up you’re a**,” Richards, 57, screamed.
But the verbal assault didn’t end there. Witnesses said the comic then demanded the patron be removed from the club. “Throw his ass out. He’s a nigger! He’s a nigger! He’s a nigger! A nigger! Look, there’s a nigger!
As the audience gasped, Richards said: “You see? This shocks you. It shocks you to see what’s buried beneath you stupid motherf**kers.”
As audience members started to walk out, the black male chastised Richards for using the n-word and called him a “cracker-a**,” prompting the comic to shoot back: “Cracker-a**? You calling me cracker-a** nigger?
“Are you threatening me? Oh, it’s a big threat. That’s how you get back at the man.”
I just like that his comments make little or no sense. I had no idea he did standup. Of course he’s still not as annoying as Dianne Sawyer…
