Garrett's Racist Taunts: 'Wear the Turban!'

4/15/2009 4:15 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Brad Garrett ignited a new racial firestorm yesterday when the giant actor dropped some serious slurs at a paparazzo during a heated argument in the middle of the street.


We don't know what set off the scuffle, but Garrett can be clearly heard saying, "Wear the turban! Wear the turban!" People had to restrain both Garrett and the photog from attacking each other, but eventually Brad got into his car and drove off.

A rep for Garrett was not immediately available for comment.

TMZ must think Garrett's a Republican, because when the V-I-C-E P-R-E-S-I-D-E-N-T said essentially the same thing it was all good!! Way to show your true colors yet again TMZ

My wife "wears the turban" but only during role-play when we convert the living room into a Moroccan harem. When she "wears the turban", it makes me happy :-)

What do you expect when you follow people around shoving cameras in their faces and asking about their personal lives? Paps should be able to take it if they're going to dish it out.
