It’s amazing to watch all those self-righteous jerks condemn comedian Michael Richards for exploding at the L.A. Laugh factory. He was taunted by a couple of really rude African American dopes trying to be hurtful. Richards soon dished out a little more than they bargained for in return.
Of all the discussion of this story not even one person offered any sympathy to Richards who was having the worst night of his career.
In this country we used to have thicker skin for name-calling. “Sticks and stones may break my bones but names will never hurt me”, used to be recited by every American child. Richard used that N-word civil people just can’t bring themselves to repeat.
In a different time in this country the hecklers would have been given the bum’s rush out of any nightclub for interrupting someone’s act. The hecklers involved with Richard’s outburst, deserved to be taken out back and bitchslapped silly.
I’m not really condoning Richard’s outburst and slur slinging but I can understand how he felt that the heckling was mean spirited and hurtful. He simply responded to the attack in kind.
As for the two African-American heckling jerks? Why it’s the celebrity victim treatment as they make the circuit of TV’s morning news shows.
