Richard Simmons

RUN OVER

Richard Simmons
got flat-footed by a driver who, well, let's just say propagated an age-old stereotype.

Richard was outside his Hollywood Hills home Thursday -- chatting with passengers from a tour bus -- when a passing motorist squarely ran over his foot.

The driver -- ok, we'll say it -- an Asian man -- stops his car, walks over to the pained weight loss guru, and apologizes.

Check out what Richard does when the driver leaves.  Hilarious.

11:45 AM PT -- Apparently it was more serious than we thought. Richard's rep tells TMZ, the home fitness icon is currently at the hospital getting his injuries checked out. But the rep adds, "He will be fine."

Obviously, Richard Simmons' feet point 180 degrees different than everyone else.

Totally racist post! Harvey, can't you school the younger ones on humor writing that's a bit more sophisticated than "asians can't drive"?
