1 If his rant didn't cause him to bone than appearing in a sitcom with Kirstie Alley will. -- Submitted By: (Jp) on October 25, 2013, 10:50 am - (0 votes) - Login to Vote
2 Now granted, the hecklers were being d1(k5- but I think any professional comic would tell you that's the chance you take when you're up there, and how you respond to it is very important. But I'm sure Mr. Richards had enough celebrity pull that he could have induced security to throw the bums out. However, MR made his 'World Apology Tour' immediately after the event and all I can say is from one human being to another, good luck. -- Submitted By: (Friedrich_Feuerstein) on August 31, 2011, 10:01 am - (0 votes) - Login to Vote
3 Michael Richards was at his funny best when he was on the early 80's sketch comedy show Fridays (on ABC). 'Spazzy' freakish weirdo characters were his specialty. He was also pretty funny on the Weird Al Yankovich vehicle 'UHF'. On Seinfeld, his Kramer character was- okay (at best). Now, maybe he was having a really bad day on that fateful night and maybe he had had just a little too much to drink before the show at the comedy club, but I lost pretty much any respect I had for him as a performer when I saw the video on that. -- Submitted By: (Friedrich_Feuerstein) on August 31, 2011, 9:53 am - (0 votes) - Login to Vote
4 Michael Richards isn't funny anyway. I could care less about his career. His entrances on Seinfeld alone were highly obnoxious. -- Submitted By: (Jp) on August 29, 2011, 7:41 pm - (-1 votes) - Login to Vote
5 It's one thing to drop one "N" bomb. But to drop tons of "N"-bombs, that was going over the line. The two hecklers involved were no better than this guy's "N"-bomb rampage. As for Michael Richards, good luck to him because he's gonna need the luck he can get now that his actions made his own ship sink even further into the boning fishwaters. -- Submitted By: (markiemark6891) on August 29, 2011, 11:00 am - (0 votes) - Login to Vote
6 What Mr. Richards did was, for lack of a better term, insane. He was way out of line. However, as others have said, the hecklers were out of line as well. Indeed, when you heckle the guy on stage, you not only cause problems for the performer but for everyone else that paid in what I'm sure is probably good money. Mr. Richards use of the n-word was unacceptable. Although again, this is putting it mildly. Having said that, I do think that we need to remember that people make mistakes. As a saying I recall says, "To err is human, to forgive is divine." -- Submitted By: (ExplodingConsole) on October 28, 2010, 11:29 pm - (0 votes) - Login to Vote
7 I forget what show it was, but I remember a talk show had the two hecklers as guests...more or less being portrayed as poor, innocent victims. Innocent, indeed. They baited Michael Richards, and got a reaction. In NO WAY, SHAPE, OR FORM DO I DEFEND MICHAEL RICHARDS' RESPONSE: He could have used thousands of other insults rather than the N-word: Idiot, Moron, Douchebag. He could have dropped F- or S-bombs instead, or used vulgar slang. But instead, he used the N-word and made a reference to lynching. -- Submitted By: (Robert) on October 28, 2010, 7:19 pm - (0 votes) - Login to Vote
8 And yet Mel Gibson is somehow able to get away with rants that would make Richards blush with shame, and nobody says anything about that. Amazingly absurd. -- Submitted By: (DolFan316) on October 28, 2010, 6:28 pm - (0 votes) - Login to Vote
9 Richards ranted some stupid, vile stuff...but anyone who's seen that video can tell he's about a couple of sheets to the wind on drink, drugs or whatever. That's not an exoneration, but I think it ought to be taken into account, as very few people are going to respond sanely in a charged situation when they're not sober. Also, let's be honest about the two guys heckling him--it doesn't make their behavior okay just because Richards used the N-bomb on them. They were grown adult men who weren't being forced to do what they were doing--they pretty clearly came into the place (where other people had paid money to see a performance undisturbed) with something of an agenda to cause a disturbance, and felt apparently that they had every right to do so. And before we all get too righteously 'post-racial, politically-correct smug' around here, let's be honest. There are probably damn few white people who have not dropped the n-word either to themselves, or out loud once or twice in their lives. I don't think that qualifies any of us as putative KKK'ers. And there's no previous history showing that Richards was some off-the-chain ranting racist prior to this incident. I think it can be more properly chalked up to the snap reaction of someone who was not fully under self-command, and who reacted in a way that (unfortunately) a whole lot of us here might also act under similar circumstances. Vile, hateful, and stupid, yes--and also, alas to say, pretty much human. -- Submitted By: (elainewood) on October 28, 2010, 9:29 am - (0 votes) - Login to Vote
10 His reaction WAS way stupid. And so were the actions of the two ***holes who kept heckling him. They could also have been 'big people' and kept their mouths shut, but they chose to attend a show that their fellow audience members had paid to see, and proceeded to **** it up for everyone by behaving like a couple of immature brats; and no, I don't think their race gave them some type of immunity from fallout for making fools of THEMSELVES. I don't like the tone of Richards' remarks, either, but it might not hurt to recall that a couple of cheap morons who couldn't be bothered to behave like grown men in public were the initial cause of the meltdown to begin with. Richards' didn't just start venting spleen on two innocent little boys who were just sitting back and bothering no one. He vented on two idiots who went out of their way to provoke a response, and it sure looks as if they got it. -- Submitted By: (elainewood) on October 28, 2010, 6:57 am - (0 votes) - Login to Vote
11 Hell, there are a few comedians who could be clever about getting back at a heckler, its just Richards chose to drop the n-bomb over and over again. He just snaps back at the heckler, says nothing derogatory, and leave it at that, Michael Richards could probably still scrape shows when he can. Because of it, he is radioactive, no one wants to touch him. -- Submitted By: (PYLrulz) on October 28, 2010, 4:27 am - (0 votes) - Login to Vote
12 He boned when he repeatedly dropped the N-bomb in dealing with a heckler. He could have ignored that heckler and be a better person for it, but nope. -- Submitted By: (BigAl) on October 27, 2010, 8:49 am - (0 votes) - Login to Vote
13 His rant would make a bigot cringe. He lost all of his comedic credibility. -- Submitted By: (Camillaboy) on May 9, 2010, 10:39 am - (0 votes) - Login to Vote
14 Granted, there are some minorities who do push some people to this limit, but Richards should of been the better man. -- Submitted By: (PYLrulz) on February 20, 2010, 11:21 pm - (0 votes) - Login to Vote
15 It's bad enough he dropped ONE N-bomb. But he said it again. And again. And again. And before he said the n-word all those times, he made a lynching reference ("50 years ago, you would have been hung upside down with a fork up your ass!"). It made me sick to watch/listen to his rant. -- Submitted By: (Robert) on February 20, 2010, 2:20 pm - (0 votes) - Login to Vote
16 The fool screwed himself. Nobody wants to touch his ass now. should have kept his racist comments to himself. Nobody cares how he feels in private, but you don't behave like an idiot in public and expect to get too much public support, of course those that feel the way that he does will love him even more for showing his tail like that. I can't even stand to watch him on Seinfeld anymore, knowing how he feels about people like me. He was boned the moment he went on that little rant. -- Submitted By: (fletch000) on February 11, 2010, 10:05 pm - (1 votes) - Login to Vote
