Gene Wilder's

'Seinfeld' Connection

3/16/2007 12:41 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

"Young Frankenstein" funnyman Gene Wilder appeared at a book signing in NYC for his new novella, "My French Whore," looking something like "Seinfeld's" Mrs. Costanza, actress Estelle Harris.

Not that there's anything wrong with that.

He had freakin' cancer you ruthless blood sucker! Can you sleep well at night knowing your meal ticket comes from putting other people down who don't deserve it?

He's also in his 70's and has a fair complexion that comes with being a redhead and the pic of him that you posted doesn't show him smiling & laughing as he usually is.

Nice try at a putdown TMZ...you're just jealous that he got a book published titled "My French Whore"

What is wrong with you, TMZ? What would possess you to be so downright rude? Id like to see Harvey Levin get on LARRY KING or any of his other beloved shows and defend THAT. SHAME ON TMZ. YOU SUCK

JJ: Thanks for saying exactly what I was thinking. Gene Wilder did a rare interview with Larry King a couple of years ago. He was completely depleted of every fluid in his body while it was being zapped for cancer and recirculated into him. I think it took 10-12 months of hospitalized isolation so as not to get an infection. He was terribly close to death. I don't care what he looks like. He's ALIVE! This is a totally, totally disgusting 'subject'.

Cancer did this, you idiot. Spew your venom elsewhere.

That's pretty mean, TMZ. Isn't the guy pushing 80? Let's see how YOU look when you're his age.

Usually I turn to your site as the only SFW site with celebrity news, but today I am ashamed. Making fun of Britney's meltdown is one thing, she is a twenty something tartlet that has no real musical ability. However, mocking a Hollywood icon who has been battling cancer for almost a decade crosses a line. Cancer jokes are funny, but mocking someone with cancer is not.

Shame on you TMZ, shame on you.

P.S. Harvey "The Hammer" Levin rocks!

Whoever wrote, authorized, posted this, beware. Karma is a bitch. Remember this when you're going in for chemo.

Seriously -- TMZ... do you think you are being clever?
This is disgraceful - Gene is a legend and a cancer survivor who is absolutely fabulous - you should be ashamed of this
