Surpris

Former Seinfeld star Michael Richards left comedy fans stunned during a Friday night performance at Los Angeles' Laugh Factory when he blasted a pair of African-American hecklers with a racist rant. The funnyman, who played quirky Cosmo Kramer in the beloved sitcom, lost his cool during a stand-up routine at the comedy club when two black audience members challenged him - and his comments were caught on camera. News website TMZ.com, which obtained the footage, reports the comedy show turned ugly when Richards realized his hecklers were black. He screamed at one of the men, "Fifty years ago we'd have you upside down with a f**king fork up your ass." And then, when the playful heckling continued, Richards objected further, ranting, "You can talk... you're brave now motherf**ker. Throw his ass out. He's a n**ger! He's a n**ger...! Look, there's a n**ger!" One of the hecklers then turned on Richards, shouting, "That's un-f**king called for, ain't necessary." Responding to the crowd's shock, Richards responded, "They're going to arrest me for calling a black man a n**ger." Many audience members then left the venue. One African-American audience member, Darryl Pitts, feels Richards should be reprimanded for his racist comments. He tells CNN, "I feel like something has to be done about. He threw those words around very cavalierly, he mentioned hanging upside down from a tree... It's very upsetting."

Ironically, Seinfeld season seven came out on DVD yesterday. Maybe Jerry can say to Michael, "No royalties this time, try again next season."

People can ticked off of something really quick from a bad day. It looked like Richards had a bad day. Hopefully he can get some anger management.

What terminology did the hecklers use on Richards? If it was out of line, they might have started the whole thing.

It's hard to say. According to reports the African Americans came in at the table in front of him and wouldn't shut-up.Now when you're trying to put on a show it is very irritating when people, given white or black, are disrupting your show.
