Seinfeld on "Kramer" Tirade: "I Am Sick"

11/20/2006 10:30 AM PST BY TMZ STAFF

Jerry Seinfeld and Michael RichardsThe jerk store called. They ran out of Michael Richards.

Just hours after TMZ exposed "Kramer's" vile and racially-charged diatribe at a Hollywood comedy club, the actor's former "Seinfeld" co-stars are weighing in.

In a statement released by Jerry Seinfeld, the comedian said, "I am sick over this. I'm sure Michael is also sick over this horrible, horrible mistake. It is so extremely offensive. I feel terrible for all the people who have been hurt."

No matter how offensive or rude Kramer was at the comedy club, he had every right to say it. Every person in our nation has the right to their opinions and to the free expression of those opinions, no matter how repulsive those opinions may be. I think the real scandal here is that TMZ were able to record inside a club. I have never been successful in recording or photographing comics or bands because of strict door policy. Although I like the website, I think that TMZ are the real bad guys here. Lets use this forum to discuss recording devices inside enterainment venues, that is the most disturbing thing about this entire episode.

This comment is for everyone who thinks he is right in what was said. you all would be considerd as niggers; which means ignorant. look that shit up please. yes he was wrong. i was told growing up if you cant stand the heat get the hell out the kitchen. this is what is wrong with the world today. white people dont have manners. if they did it would not be a problem. Just like in a class that i have the teacher said that white people dont know what to say and when to say it. So whenever they decide to get off of their high horse which aint shit and realize that they are not shit then the world would be a better place. dude need to give it up. he fired get off my clock!!! and that is for whom ever agrees. thanks

I can't believe what I'm reading. Are you people serious? After reading all of this racist nonsense, I think I just realized there is an new race being built that dosen't have anything to do with color of skin, but the same small minded thinking. Do all you haters work off of the same clogged brain cell.


Has anyone realized there are innocent children that will have to deal with all of this nonsense when all you clueless lamebrains are dead and gone.

I think Michael Richards and anyone who agrees that his behavior should be overlooked should really take a good look at them selves. Who made people of color? Why aren't we accepted?

As a black man and an entertainer my own self I is ashamed that a black brother would pay to get into a comedy club, make comments at the comedian up on stage doin his thing and not expect a come back -- any kind of come back.. Man its a comedy club! Get real! Its all good!
Now if a white man walked into an all black comedy club in harlem for example, and a black comedian was up on stage doin his thing and the white man said, "you ain't funny" -- though the white man might be right the black comedian may not be funny -- the white man would most likely be taking his life into his own hands. He might even be seriously killed. And don't you believe for one minute that black folk would be gettin up and walking out the club cus the the black comedian came back with -- Well, thats the same thing your momma said, you ain't funny, when your momma and I brought you home from the hospital when you was born. And now you show up here to prove she was right. An you don't even look black.
As for somebody suing somebody and apologizing, I believe the black borthers should be apologizing and payin this fella "Kramer" some money just for acting a fool and being ignorant in the first place.
Otherwise they could all just sit down shake, bake and break some bread together, laugh, have a good time and forget about it. Its all good -- its a comedy club.
Bottom line -- we all need a little more laughter and a whole lot more love in this world.

I'm a Kramer fan, so is everyone else, I know people say things stupid time to time, but he went to far, but he could be forgiven like everyone else could be forgiven in life, who are we to punish kramer, that is God's job to do, not us, we are hurted for his race statement, but lets be realistic here, how many racists we have in this world that we live in, he's just the tip of the ice birg, believe me, kramer will survive this and move on with his live like everyone else. God bless him and to everyone. Thank you.

As unfortunate as the nights events became for the men that left the club, they did the right thing; they left. So did others in the audience. This leaves Kramer, who obviously needs help the most. How any talk of "compensation" will ever promote healing is beyond me but obviously not beyond the clutches of america's vultures,(lawyers of course). Fishing for money resolves nothing, enhances the wrong stereotype that victims can only heal with cash. Time for those two black americans to challenge themselves, perhaps find the courage to take the higher road and reach out to Richard in manner that shows a commitment to building tolerance, not hatred. Kramer has torpedoed his career. the two men as"victims" had a lousy night out.

GOTAN,

IT IS VERY OBVIOUS THAT YOU ARE TRAILER PARK TRASH. TO SAY SOMETHING LIKE "GO HOME SPOOK" REALLY SHOWS YOUR STUPIDITY. DID YOU KNOW WHITE PEOPLE ALSO ARE BORN AND LIVE IN AFRICA.

THIS WORLD IS EVERYONES AND THE SOONER YOU KKK. RACIST, MENTALLY UNDER DEVELOPED, ASSHOLES REALIZE THIS THE BETTER OFF YOU ALL WILL BE.

FOR YOUR INFORMATION IT'S TO LATE TO GO HOME. YOU BASTARDS CAME AND GOT US NOW DEAL WITH THE OUTCOME OF YOUR ACTIONS. THIS IS WHAT HAPPENS WHEN ONE RACE HAS AN INFERIORITY COMPLEX TOWARDS ALL OTHER RACES. THE WHITE IN WHITE AMERICA DOESN'T MEAN PURE YOU ALL ARE TAINTED. YOU WILL NEVER LIVE DOWN ALL THE SHIT THAT YOU TRY TO PUT PEOPLE OF COLOR THROUGH. OF COURSE WHITE AMERICANS ARE TIRED OF HEARING ABOUT ALL OF THERE PAST TRANSGRESSIONS, BUT AGAIN DEAL WITH IT YOU AND YOUR ANCESTORS KILLED HUNDREDS AND THOUSANDS OF MEN, WOMEN, AND CHILDREN (BABIES), YOU'VE STOLEN LAND AND THIS BULLSHIT STILL EXIST TODAY. SO YEAH BLACKS ARE ALWAYS POINTING THE FINGER AT WHITE AMERICA. YOU TELL BLACKS TO GO HOME, BUT IT'S YOUR FAULT WE'RE HERE, YOU COMPLAIN ABOUT HOW UNEDUCATED WE ARE, BUT YOU TRIED TO STOP US FROM LEARNING, YOU COMPLAIN ABOUT HOW ROWDY WE ARE, BUT YOU TRIED TO CAGE US FOR BEING HUMAN, SO YOU SEE THIS IS HOW YOU TRIED TO TRAIN US TO BE, BUT IT DID'T WORK. YOU COULDN'T KEEP US CAGED, YOU COULDN'T KEEP US UNEDUCATED, AND YOU WILL NEVER CONTAIN US. WE'VE COME ALONG WAY AND WE'RE NOT DONE YET, SO GET OVER YOURSELF BECAUSE YOU ARE NOT GOING TO WIN OVER US WE ARE A FORCE TO BE RECKON WITH.

Jake,

I don't see what your saying. In my opinion it's not ok to call anyone anything other then the name they were given at birth.

White people have been calling us niggers since they made the word for us so many years ago. When a white person says "nigger" to a person of color it's like saying we deserved what happened to our people, that's some pretty deep shit. Society can try and say that the new meaning is an ignorant person, but bottom line is when a white person says that they mean for it to hurt in the worst possible way. I don't think what one black person calls another has anything to do with anything.

Let someone come and still all the white people and change there culture and language, beat them for the color of there skin, rape there women, humiliate and degrade there men, hurt there children, use them, abuse them, then when there done with that kill them in some of the worst ways known to man, and then have the same people tell them to get over it. Would you get over it white people? Even though centuries has passed the ancestors of these people and there hate for there fellow men is alive and well.

Dude, you said "imugnment" (in your earlier post about bad spellers) and that's not a word. That's what they meant.

Someone else said:
"Well now, hmm let me see.....I guess that I know now that nearly 90 percent of the people are still racist. Thats not much of a surprise."

If you're basing that calculation on message boards and comments like these, you will be way off. Racists and haters and lots of ignorant people tend to come on and comment. It's not an indication of the general population's average opinion.

What kind of mind would pay good money to see a smut peddler like Richards?
And then complain when they get what they wasted their money for. If something in your chemistry needs to hear foul language., why not pay some homeless person to swear for you. I suspect that he would be happy to bathe you in profanity for five bucks an hour. The money would go to someone who really could use it instead of a person that is "filthy" rich.
