This is almost as uncomfortable as a scenario from Curb Your Enthusiasm! TMZ.com has footage of Michael Richards, aka the actor who played Cosmo Kramer, going crazy at two black audience members who were heckling him at a comedy club. From TMZ:
The camera started rolling just as Richards began his attack, screaming at one of the men, "Fifty years ago we'd have you upside down with a f***ing fork up your ass."
Richards continued, "You can talk, you can talk, you're brave now motherf**ker. Throw his ass out. He's a nigger! He's a nigger! He's a nigger! A nigger, look, there's a nigger!"
The crowd is visibly and audibly confused and upset. Richards responds by saying, "They're going to arrest me for calling a black man a nigger."
One of the men who was the object of Richard's tirade was outraged, shouting back "That's un-f***ing called for, ain't necessary."
Most of the audience members reportedly left.
Is this the next stage of the Seinfeld curse? And if so, watch out, Jason Alexander!
