Mel to Michael: Slurs Happen

11/29/2006 7:49 PM PST BY TMZ STAFF

Michael Richards is getting support from someone who knows exactly what he's going through -- Mel Gibson.
Mel Gibson and Michael Richards
Gibson, infamous for his anti-semitic invective after being pulled over for drunk driving, tells Entertainment Weekly, "I feel really badly for the guy. He was obviously in a state of stress. You don't need to be inebriated to be bent out of shape." Ain't that the truth!

"You don't need to be inebriated to be bent out of shape." --Mel



Regarding Richards' fate in the media, Mel added, "They'll probably torture him for a while and then let him go. I like him." Of course he does.

Looks like Kramer can count on work in a Gibson flick. Perfect pairing.

Between the years Nov '75 until Nov '02 I drove a taxi for 18 years in Philadelphia, Buffalo and Niagara Falls. Fifty percent of the population in the back was black. It took me two years when I first started to figure out that you don't pick up blacks off of the street. You increase the liklihood you going to get beat for the fare. Too many "I have to go get the money from my awnt(sic) stories'. That policy still didn't prevent me from being robbed 5 times, 4 times by blacks with guns, one time two whites beat me up for the money. Fifteen percent of the population causing 90 percent of the problems. Please, believe me, I'm not making this up. Aside from the robberies and walk outs having to listen to the dumbest s*** imaginable is more than one should have to bear. I'm now back in the Philadelphia suburbs and twice a week have to go downtown. That's the extent of my contact anymore. I did two years in Vietnam, I harbor no ill will towards Vietnamese, nor do I harbor any ill will towards blacks. But, if I had to make a choice to go back to having to drive a taxi or go back to Vietnam I'm pretty sure I'd opted out for Ho Chi Minh City. Not really, I'm set for life with money, I don't have to make that choice. But, I will say that I'm very appreciative that I don't have to deal with blacks, anymore. I'm sorry, but not sorry. Jews? A lot of Jews in Philadelphia, never had a problem with a Jew.

Could someone please tell me why the cats in my neighborhood are always trying to cover over the black kids that play in the sandbox out in the backyard of my apartment building but leave the white kids alone that play in it?

go kramer go:

as usual, those that post such comments are full of rage, self-loathing, and inadaquacy issues. your comments are based on zero facts.

WHITES MAKE UP THE VAST MAJORITY OF THE WELFARE ROLES, SO
GO BACK AND REPEAT 2ND GRADE, PLEASE!!!!!!!!!!!!

DO YOURSELF SOME GOOD; GO BACK TO SCHOOL. YOU ARE CLEARLY NOT EDUCATED WHEN YOUR FACTS ARE 100% WRONG!!!!!

How embarrassing is that, however, this is why you will never succeed. Instead of focusing on yourself, your education, and improving your skills, you make false accusations against another group. You shall continue to be a social outcast by your OWN white group, ( who statistically LOVE rap!!! p.s. i do not )

It must be so sad to be you. alone, posting hate, feeling rage, making things up, no friends. It really must be pathetic and cold life. I feel sorry for you that you get so much excitement by your posts. you are outnumbered, though. sorry.

Please do go back and get an education, and try to concentrate this time, and get better grades, make better friends, and then you will not have to feel this much rage.

I have said it before, and I will say it again. BLACKS ARE WELCOME IN MY COUNTRY CLUB!

Man I am really tired of seeing people type FOR CHRIST SAKE THERE IS A WAR GOING ON. Did you just realized this because if I am not mistaken the war has been going on for about five years. The news isn't new. We hear about how we are "progressing" every day on the fight against terrorism. Where were you five years ago when the war started, why all of a sudden these pseudo-liberals/left wing activist give a damn? Stop using, FOR CHRIST SAKE THERE IS A WAR GOING ON to divert the topic. The topic is about Mel f***head Gibson supporting/comforting Michael A**hole Richards for his comments about hanging Black people. The n word doesn't bother me as much as the referencing to how blacks used be lynch in the good ole south. But still his comments were wrong, hurtful and out of place.

Oh wow, right above this story is a real shocker, 50 Cent crackin' on Winfrey, O for acting white! What? A black racist? What is the world coming too? How come a black person can be a racist and it's OK? What a crock of shit. This is the kind of double standard that makes the Mels, Michaels, etc. click.

As for white men and small penises. From what I hear about pornography a lot of white men are big. And also I could have sworn Larry Holmes who was once a famous WHITE porn star was famous for his large penis. So where did that Lie come from. Why are blacks saying that? You may as well give it up because nobody believes it.

I just read the TMZ.com posting of the original 4 page police report about Mel's DUI arrest. It contained three comments referencing Jews. It was not a "four page rant" or "tirade" like these liars in the media keep repeating. Mel commented that the Jews were gonna get him for this; that Jews were responsible for all the wars in the world, and then asked the officer if he were a Jew. Sounds like drunk talk to me. The South Park episode that spewed such vicious hatred against Mel and The Passion of Christ was made by sober people, yet the media thought that was real nice. Such brazen hypocrites!

give me a break, everyone who is TRULY honest will admit to uttering unGodly aspersions, be it anti-race, anti-religion, anti-idiocy!!!! Why do we think that Actors, Singers, Celebrities in general are any less human? Give it a rest already! People are dying in Iraq and Afghanistan and that is alot more important than what these two have to say or feel

I think people are being stupid about the entire comment. Mel never said he sympathsised with the word Richards used but that he knew what he was going through...I swear when the media says hop you faggots hop don't you?
