Brad Garrett Swings at TMZ -- Again!

10/18/2007 12:19 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Brad Garrett bitchslapped a TMZ photog back in August, after taking out some frustration on the wrong guy -- and yesterday went on TV to actually defend his hit.


Garrett was on "Good Day L.A.," where he slammed TMZ by saying, "They're not journalists" -- and that he was "ambushed" while on a date at Nobu. Garrett also said he hit a man wearing a turban. That was not the case. The guy he actually hit was our turban-less cameraman!

What Garrett failed to mention were the alleged racial slurs behind the incident. On the night of the slapping, one of the photogs in front Nobu told Brad that he was offended by remarks Brad made toward black people. Obviously upset by the question, Brad turned and hit our guy -- who hadn't said a word the entire night.

Dorothy Lucey rallied support for Harvey Levin though, and said, "He's an investigative reporter, he's the only one left in television news." Thanks, Dorothy!

I still think that the brass behind TMZ is going to HELL in a handbasket because of the way they are constantly putting ppl down and harming them and their character.

I don't even want to watch his show anymore. (Sorry Joely Fisher, love you) No excuse for his actions. Did the paps hit him? NOT Don't be where the paps are if he can't deal with it. No one sees Joely Fisher with that attitude. You are not all that Brad. Give Brad's job to someone who will appreciate it. "Sticks and stones BRAD! No one physically hurt you!"

Do you think you are an A-list actor or something? You are not worthy of their pic. Maybe they should not give you any more fame? You suck ass!

You don't have to be journalist to have an opinion!

TMZ has the right to allow the people the opportunity to voice their thoughts!

Have we not been force fed information by the powers that be for years now ....

Well, this the very same thing .... but the difference is WE THE PEOPLE get our five seconds of FREE SPEECH!

Hate it or Love it .... okay!

I don't understand why people comment on how TMZ is always in people's faces and how TMZ needs to get a life. Why the heck are you on here then????!!!! If you don't like their tactics then don't come on this site. As for gigantor he should be grateful that anyone wants to take his pic he is such a has been (and never really was that good of an actor to melodramatic for me). We have freedom of speech, Brad says his racial slurs (which I don't agree with but again freedom of speech), TMZ can take pics but by no means should Brad be allowed to hit anyone.
