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."

funny how all the times my car and cars in the past that have been hit by another were always people of other races other than Asians.

Did you notice Richard backed into the car. This was Richards fault. Richard was standing in the middle of the street talking to the people in the bus. He should have looked before he stepped back. Richard is the one who should be apologizing to the driver of the car.

I thought it was awesome of him to invite the folks off the bus to take pictures at his home for their memories. How many of today's so-called stars would even look at these folks. Here he is talking with them and inviting them for photos. What a cool guy.

It was the Asian guys fault. He didn't swerve like a non-Asian would have when someone unexpectedly backs into the side of their car without looking.

White people need to understand that Asian is not a race. Japanese people and Iraqi people have nothing in common. we get it, you think slanted eyed people can't drive. no need to lump an entire continent of people together to make your point. It's like if the world woke up and starred calling all North Americans Mexican. at least call them oriental or east Asian. No point in being wilfully ignorant.
