Michael Richards "Kramer" lashes out at heckler

At the Laugh Factory in Hollywood the other night, Michael Richards, aka "Kramer" as many of you will know him from the hit sitcom "Seinfeld", lashed out at a heckler.

Apparently a group of people came in late, were noisy and disrupted the show. Richards continued his skit until one of them started heckling him.

It was then that things turned nasty as you can see here on the TMZ.Com video of the event.

Richards used the "N" word several time to describe the heckler.

While agree that Richards comments were a overboard, for the life of me I can not understand why there was nothing said about the hecklers?

As you can clearly hear from the video, the hecklers actually used racist remarks toward Richards. What I find amusing is that the hecklers immediately started saying "That's uncalled for, that's uncalled for" and then calling Richards a "F*****g Cracker Ass Mother F*****er" and a "F*****g White Boy."

It looks like the hecklers could dish it out but couldn't take it.

And now it looks like Jamie Foxx has threatened Richards with physical harm should they ever meet in person. Hmmmm.....all this over a racial slant toward a couple hecklers?

I'm not seeing the difference in between what Richards did and what Foxx and the two hecklers have done, yet Richards is the one catching all the heat? Why?

Richards has apologized to Jesse Jackson and Al Sharpton....why? Were they in the audience also? I don't think soooo.

Here's advice for you would-be hecklers.

1. You're not special. You don't have the right to show up late to a show then start heckling. If you were half as good as the guy/girl you're heckling, then you'd be on stage.
2. Once again, you're not special. Just because you're not entertained, doesn't mean you have to ruin it for everyone else. What makes you think you can show up late to a show and disrupt it because you're not having fun? Maybe everyone else is? If you don't like the show, then leave.
3. If you heckle and the entertainer puts you in your place and makes you look like the fool you are, don't be a sissy about it. Take your lumps and sit there and shut up or leave. Remember, you started it!
4. Don't be surprised if the crowd beats the crap out of you. You're the same type of person who shows up late to a moving, come in tripping all over people and spilling your drink on them, then plop down in the middle of the row and start talking!

It's been a few days since Richards has made the remarks and every thing has been pretty quiet on the news front about Richards. I suspect this is going to blow over pretty quickly.
