He already made his public apology, subject closed.

He apologized for being a racist. Nice way to stop being a racist. :oldlol:

He apologized for what he said. What he said he meant every word of it or he wouldn't have said it at all. The apology makes him stop being a racist. Instantly.

eh, we all say things. Sure what he said was bad but i've moved on, He's still Funny as Hell in Seinfeld and Trial and Error. If he wasn't being heckled he wouldn't have done anything.

he shouldnt have been up there if he couldnt handle some hecklers..every comedian deals with hecklers... Richards let some hecklers throw him off his game......he had a meltdown on stage and showed his true self....It still makes me laugh how some local yocal hecklers made this guy meltdown and ruin his career and his name... WOW!

of course hes still a racist its just he made an outburst and wasnt expecting a backlash and he can make excuses about shock comedy but you cant consciously say that without feeling guilty so rightly he should be called a racist or as southpark put it N***** guy

Yes he would, and did. If you watch the full set which was rarely shown for lack of time, he started with all the "dumb ****** and *****" stuff when they first came in. They came in during the middle of his set up in the balcony and he noticed it and was mad it was kind of an interruption and he started.


But I still watch Seinfeld. Michael Richards's career wasn't/isn't going anywhere anyways

We're a forgiving society. This will be old news in a matter of time, if not already. People have done far worse things and have been able to rebuild their image.

Everybody makes mistakes. I'm sure every white guy has had a moment in their life where they thought of a black person as a dumb ******. Some guys have actually said it publically, but it's generally done out of anger, not because they truly hate blacks.
