    Kramer's a racist

    Michael Richards, who played the character of Kramer on Seinfield, was caught on camera going on a racial tirade after being interupted during his act. Bit awkward to be honest.

    Wow. Completely unnecessary over-reaction.

    That's just crazy. It's not uncommon for some people to exhibit latent racist tendencies when they're under stress, but this seems to run a lot deeper than that. The reference to lynching is particularly disturbing. I'm a big fan of his character on Seinfeld so it's quite sad really.

    Here's his apology for what it's worth, but I can't really see him living this down.

    Pretty shocking. It was just so weird watching "Kramer" go in a racist rage. Sad really.

    Wow, he just totally lost it. Something snapped.

    That's really disappointing.

    What a shocker. Seems like at the end he was looking for some way to salvage it, by ruminating on the power of "those words", but a few seconds later, I think he realised how bad it had gotten and just left the stage.

    Hearing the woman close to the camera say "Oh my god" at one stage really drives home how much Richards had lost it. In some ways it's a shame that losing it in that way will probably haunt his career forever, but what he said simply can't be defended.

    Lets be honest, the guy's done nothing since Seinfeld. He doesn't have a "career" to ruin.

    Sad but true. Heard his recent stand-up acts have been woeful, with very few laughs.

    He did make this movie though, which was sort of funny.

    doesn't make any difference whether he was on alcohol or drugs or whatever, what he said was indefensible and any number of public apologies for the sake of salvaging his bloody image doesn't really mean anything, his remarks showed deep-seated racism and i don't think at this age it would be easy to just change that kind of mental makeup....

    He was apologizing earlier today (11pm over there) with Jerry Seinfield on the Letterman show. Video might be up on youtube soon.
