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."

I'm Black, and really like Kramer. I hope he did not mean what he said. I forgive him.

Regardless of what others say to us, we have a responsibility to act a certain way. As much as we may think we have the right to be angry, the anger does not solve any problems. It is very sad that people say such hurtful things, as he did, but people from all races know in themselves what type of people they are despite what someone else says. There are many unfair things about this world, but we cannot look at it that way. We have to concentrate on treating others in a fashion that lets them know we care about our fellow human being, and when someone says something hateful to us, we just look the other way and stop the reaction right there. Imagine how different this situation would be if he had just ignored the comments being made.

Everybody here needs to quit trying so hard to be offended. Have you never heard your friend call somebody a nigger? Have you never heard the word "nigger" spoken in a rap song? Why is it so apalling to hear it now, unless this is the first time you've ever heard it?

1. Somebody said Mike wasn't funny. Is that tantamount to saying I remember when you would've been hanging w/ a fork up your ass? Comedians get heckled that comes with the territory. Mike is sick. His career (or what was left) is done.

2. As far as Seinfeld? The name of the game is CYA. If you didn't get that last part... think about it.

tee baby, quit marginalizing the injustices your ancestors suffered by claiming that you personally suffered them. Not only that, but why are you not equally outraged that the black person in the audience called Richards a "cracker ass motherf***er", and a "f***ing white boy". You are only interested in condemning racism when a white person does it. When a black person is racist, you seem to think it's A-OK, and making such a distinction means you are yourself a racist.

Shut up javier .. Katrina was a hurricane I don't think it is compariable to richardson. matter of fact I was a disaster victim and I don't appreciate your comparison on how its ok to call people names . i don't use the n word when did you become the spokes person for african americans. So you know that all blacks call themselves the n word. Your an idiot. you need to re educate yourselves instead of relying on television and research black history . Your just funny all together with that dumb commet. lol what ignorance that you know every black person on earth. wow you must be god or a mind reader to know all about black people.

Tawny you say someone called you a racist because you asked them for the definition of a word they used depending on the context and tone of your question yes it could be taken as a racist remark but only if said in a sarcastic/superior like manner as if to prove a point or test a person's intellect and if that was the case you must ask yourself would you had said the exact same thing to one of your friends or someone of your ethnic/racial/educational/financial background? Now if you were sincere and were asking the definition for your own personal purposes as to better your vocabulary or knowledge then that's a whole different story.

Michael Richardson just expressed what we as minorities and African Americans have known for a long time that is... what the majority (not all but most) of " White American's" feel deep down that's why he stated "what's buried inside" that was a keen observation. All he did was once again prove our so called "parnoia" about "White America" to be true. The whole "superiority complex" (most again not all) White America/n's have or let me rephrase think they have over other ethnic ,cultural and minority groups in this country. O.K. now you can rant & rave about the truth I have just stated but deep down most of you know what you have said about minorities behind their backs and amongst each other and yes we do do the same as well but the difference being and what most of white america fails to realize is that when you have the power, the control, and have a history of horrific violence perpetrated on certain ethnic and racial groups that most of you have benefitied from directly or indirectly from your ancestors then it causes just that much more pain ,anger and hurt in otherwords if I as an African American said the same thing as Richards about whites it wouldn't have the same effect yes it would be politically incorrect and offensive but white america would be like what we didnt get beat 50 years ago so it would hold untrue and would have no power. That is not the case for us and that is pushing too far it would be the equivalent of someone from the Taliban making insensitive , outrageous and offensive remarks about those killed in the terrible tragedy of 911 which would offend all americans because it hits @ a wound and core of something that actually happened and is still fresh that's the best way I can describe it to those of you who can't relate. Remember when 911 hit it wasn't about black & white & yellow, red etc it was about Americans and others as a whole. When those planes hit they saw no color. So pls watch what you say and how you say it.

Man, I am so tired of people playing the victim card for a simple "N" word. Get over it! Maybe if people didn't act like idiots with their meaningless rap music and vulgar lifestyles people wouldn't say anything. "Thugs" for lack of a better word live hard, talk hard, degrade women. Oh but then you say the "N" word and look at the sensitivity. Its a joke, they're a joke. And I must say that I believe a certain type of person fits the description of that word and that type of person can be black or white.
