Richards' Rant -- What You Didn't See

11/22/2006 1:55 PM PST BY TMZ STAFF

Laugh Factory patrons Kyle Doss and Frank McBride appeared on the "Today" show this morning, and gave their account of what you didn't see on the now infamous tape of Michael Richards' racist rant.

According to the two men, they were out for a night on the town to celebrate a friend's birthday. They arrived at the Laugh Factory at the beginning of Richards' act. They ordered drinks and acknowledged they probably disrupted Richards' act with their talking. What they got next was outrageous. Doss says Richards made a racial comment and gave him the finger -- and then launched into the tirade caught on tape by TMZ.

The two are now represented by omnipresent publicity hound Gloria Allred, who says a retired judge should decide what monetary compensation these two should receive.

How very "People's Court" of her!

So, these two guys are rude to Kramer by saying something they should not have been saying to him and now Kramer says something back to them he should not be saying. Now the two guys want to sue Kramer. Maybe Kramer should sue them, because think of the damages Kramer will have now due them starting this whole deal. (I almost forgot they called Kramer "a white cracker")

Also, maybe these two guys should sue hollywood because hollywood has the word "nigger" in alot of their movies. Hollywood also has deeper pockets!

There was no camera rolling prior to the racial outburst and therefore no way to verify who started what and what led up to Richard's comments...it is amazing to me that no one came forward prior to this saying that Richards made a racial comment and then gave them the finger prior to the outburst...how much do you want to bet that someone will come forward now just to get their five minutes of fame?!?!

This country is falling to shit and it is people like Gloria Allred who are allowing it to happen. The very same people who want to make money off of their Constitutinal rights are the very same ones who are denying the rest of America theirs. If a group of American hating Baptists can protest at our fallen soldiers funerals spouting words such as "God hates the USA", "God invented IED's", and "God is killing our soldiers for supporting a country that supports homosexuality" and still be protected from prosecution then Michael Richards can sure as hell say the things he says....I will be outraged if he is forced to pay even one cent to these guys.

By law he owes nothing to these guys...on an ethical level he owed them an apology and he has done that. Regardless of whether they choose to accept that apology is up to them. Morally it was uncalled for but there is no law against it...and he is certainly protected under his first amendment rights whether anyone likes it or not.

To everyone on Kramer's side that is what is wrong with America. KRAMER IS RACIST the difference between a black man saying Nigga and a white man saying Nigger is White people say Nigger and mean it with hatred. I can't stand eveyone that sticks up for Kramer... If he thought they were being loud CALL SECURITY!! QUESTION If they got up and punched him in his racist mouth Would Kramer sue them. I'M white and yep let the past be the past.. So why can't WHITE people understand that and just stop using the word??? TO ALL WHITE PEOPLE THE NEXT TIME YOUR FAMILIES ARE TOGETHER AND THE N WORD IS MENTION WERE THEY HAPPY ARE ANGRY WHEN THE WORD "SLIPPED" or in Kramers case slipped over and over and over ASSHOLE!! AMERICA STILL IS STILL RACIST BUT NOT ACCORDING TO WHITE FOKES!!! A Mother of 2 biracial kids IT DOES!!

Hmmmmm Dave, why was it okay for black people to be enslaved and treated inhumanely like they were in the past... Once you can answer that question, maybe you will figure out the answer to the one regarding the movie titles...

WELL, HERE WE HAVE BLACKS DOING WHAT THEY KNOW BEST......................."GETTIN' OVER".

WHAT THESE TWO LITTLE BOYS ARE DOING CLEARLY INDICATES THEY'RE IN FINANCIAL TROUBLE AND NEED SOME CASH.

POOR LITTLE BOYS. I WONDER IF MOMMIE HAD TO CHANGE THEIR DIAPERS AFTER THE SHOW.

REMEMBER, THESE TWO BLACKS "LIT THE FUSE" OF THE PROCESS SUBSEQUENT TO THEIR DISRUPTIVE BEHAVIOR AND LOUD TALK ENTERING LATE.

THESE TWO BLACKS CAME IN LATE, DISRESPECTED THE OTHERS IN THE PLACE BY TALKING LOUD, DISRESECTED KRAMER'S ACT, AND THEREFORE, PRIMARILY ARE AT FAULT.

I WISH KRAMER WOULD COUNTERSUE AND CAUSE THE $$$$ THING TO NEUTRALIZE.

AGAIN, BLACKS ARE THE RACE WHICH COINED THE PHRASE====================>"GETTIN' OVER".

THEY DO IT EVERDAY OF THEIR LIVES WHEN THEY YELL RACISM, AFFIRMATIVE ACTION, FOOD STAMPS, COMMODITIES, PUBLIC ASSISTANCE, HOLD YOU UP WHILE CROSSING THE ROAD, AND ON.

Wow,...funny how all the caucasian posts actually agree w/ Richard's over-reaction to simply being interupted. I find this appauling, but in this racist-ass world we live in, I am not at all surprised. Just goes to show the state of race relations in "great ol' U.S. of A."...a majority of white people are underground racist until some high profile caucasian gives them somebody to agree with. Richard's SUCKS..if u agree w/ him or his tirade u SUCK too. Word's are powerful, but it's the actions, and feeling behind them that make them that way. F**K Richard's and all you biggots that sided w/ him in your bullsh*t post's. I hope he does get sued, maybe it'll teach his dumb ass to keep his racism underground like the cowering white man he and many of the biggots in amercica really are under all that money. ...PEACE!!

You've got your PhD, yeah and I'm boinking Kramer. Do you really think because you TYPED I've got my PhD that anyone believes it.? That's the funniest thing I've heard all day. But hey, since you know ALL about the innermost workings of the mind perhaps you could determine what makes you so bitter about anyone whose opinion differs from yours. I'll refrain from calling you a name, as you did me, because we educated don't need to resort to such things.

Are you flipping serious........... this guys are a joke. Suing over the N-Word, i am one of few women (Black) in the Boxing biz i hear crap all the time if its that easy we'd all be running in and out of court day in day out.

What that idiot bigot said was very very wrong and he should be banned from live performing and TV for life. But these two players are looking to cash in i am disgusted and shocked.

Brothas enjoy your 15 mins and get back to real life.

The word CRACKER doesn't have the same negative connotation as the word NIGGER, This is the legacy that your racist forefathers have left us. So when some negro gets paid off of a cracker saying this sort of thing justice is served No amount of money will make right the damage that your ancestors have done to blacks,indians, and Asians in America and in the world.

This is the possibly the most racist site next to a KKK website that is on the internet as far as comment boards go, it is sickening. Good for them trying to get money, as I'm sure any of you racist fuckers would the second a famous person did something to you that you could sue for, except in this case they definitely have good reason. Racism is bullshit and the ignorance of most people on these boards in fucking disgusting. Nothing pisses me off more than racist bastards like you. Honestly, I would be happy if every last one of you was shot in the head.

As a black person I have to say ARE YOU KIDDING ME??? Gloria Alred is pissed off cause the OJ thing is over and fat ass needs to be back in the spotlight. These dudes are off the charts. If thats the case imma sue Akon, 50Cent and Snoop for using the N word AND degrading women. Michael Richards was VERY VERY VERY wrong but that is soooooo out there. God help them.
