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.

82. Keep wishing that way you Jihads. Go home. You'll never take my McD's away. Your right #78. You are like flies. Dirty, nasty, stinking flies.

Flies are highly evolved CLEANERS - they are fast can change directions at will and they eat garbage as we will eat you.
Just wait... one day Macdonald's will be serving real food ... Pitas with falafel, tahini, spicy carrots, goat cheese wrapped in grape leaves and lots of olives ... we will rid this country of your way of life... starting with burgers and fries!
Peace be with you... but no fries for you! ha, ha, ha.......

its disgusting how ignorant most of you guys are.. show some respct.. saying muslims are dirty or terrorists shows how much you actually know about muslims and it proves you dont know sure you guys would be angry if a D-LIST actor like him made slurals about your race or your religion.. if you had some class you would know that SIKHS wear turbans and not muslims and theres nothing wrong with that.. i have muslim friends and they are very respectable and kind..

and anyways what is TMZ doing following a d-list actor like him?

I think he needs a lesson in tolerance and needs to take an anger management control class.

C'mon, we don't know what the paparazzi intentionally did to provoke him into a reaction the guy could then get on film, video or as a digital image.
That's how they get all those unflattering pictures of people.
So telling the guy to "wear the turban" sounds like a not so subtle way to imply he should dress like a terrorist if he's gonna act like one. Especially if he's "English" like the guy then says.
Much ado about nothing.
Not racist.
Not anything.
Not even middle-of-the-road rage.

Rap sucks    

How the hell is that racist? I'm not racist but really it's just like saying to a black guy "hey wear the flat brimmed hats", you know.

based on past stories and replies, i'm not surprised that tmz is plagued with people who harbor racist sentiments and are in denial or too stupid to realize they are racist. if you dont get what was wrong with brad's statements, you probably never will even if we explained it to you.

must be good ole "real" american christian values lol
