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.

First Kramer, now Robert Barone! Remember all prejudice is wrong, so don't assume that all tall dorky guys with goose-honk voices are racists. That wouldn't be right!!!

Man, I wish this bear of a man would get his hands on one of these papclowns. Was that brother the one that Woody H. had whinning like a little Btch? He kept referring to his size which SURE as HELL didn't faze W.H. ANY man, that lets another man punk him the way W.H. did and whinned worse than Rihanna, DESERVES to get his ass kick, just like Sam Jackson said.

Is that an Obama sticker on his car? He's not only more stupid for that but he's going against B.O.'s change for America.
And making fun of a turban isn't racist it's anti culutural.

So this is considered racist? But calling someone "Little White Bitch" isn't?? Hmmm. Double standard. I still don't understand it. Guess I never will.

Brads the man!! He's still got it!!! Funny as hell! Beat the jerks ass next time! Shows how stupid the paparazzi are. Chasing around "c-List" celebrities. All of a sudden theres a law stating you must love everyone. I call BS. There's a lot of people I love but theres a lot of people that are worthless crap. A lot. By the way, Kramer is hysterical. You dummies that think we all should just love everyone no matter what they are should move to Fantasy Island!!! Jerks!!! HaHaha!!!! Brad is awesome!!

This is DOWNRIGHT RACIST! NO Different than Michael Richards Racist "N" word rant at two innocent African Americans.
Obviously, the gentlemen being verbally ASSAULTED by Garret is a member of a Middle Eastern, presumably Muslim, faith. The Turban remark is the SAME AS THE " N " WORD!
THis Garret fellow should be taken of of TV immediately... SUED.... and spend some time in COMMUNITY SERVICE helping MUSLIM children... maybe then he would learn how hurtful his words are.

Brad Garett is a washed up has been idiot. Why give him any more attention. Seinfeld is over...he can live off the cash forever and never have to be seen again. Except of course during pilot season when his new show every year only last 2 episodes before its cancelled!! This guy is garbage!!!
