Don Rickles -- Watch Out for Egyptians!

2/26/2009 1:20 PM PST BY TMZ STAFF

He's the King of Insults, but last night, did Don Rickles cross a line by telling an Egyptian autograph hunter "Don't make trouble!" after the guy said where he was from?

Don you are awesome! And no, he did not go too far. People need to lighten up. The political correctness in this country has gotten out of hand.

Leave the old Heeb alone...he's been doing it since the 50's and if you've seen his show, you know it's an act. He's not a racist douchebag like Day-O Harry...

The reason why true great comedians of his ilk are few and far between, is that they honed their craft in burlesque houses, strip clubs (a tough act), the Catskills and pavillions. Why are the new generation of comedians (Will Ferrell, Jack Black, Rainn Wilson etc.) exceedingly not funny? They never put their time before the mast to develop material and a true sense of humor that spans generations, race and sex. Just watch an interview with Leno or Letterman where these new comedians should shine but fail miserably. Crickets

This guy has NEVER been funny. In all the years I have seen him on TV , I don't think I have ever laughed. This guy is Gran Torino without a lesson learned.

Come on! Don Rickles? It's like Joan RIvers making fun of jews. He can say anything b/c he's old school and a little off in the head. "IN" people are the ones that have to watch it. Can we all stop being so politically correct? A little Egyptian humor is funny!

God love him; at his age he's still quick on the draw.

Look at the typical white folks coming to Rickle's rescue. They are basically saying, "only white people should be able to determine when other ethnic groups should be offended." If whites are not offended by racist jokes, you shouldnt be either. So typical!
