Do you think he’s sorry?
Kramer hit the road and a dive coffee shop in the last episode of Seinfeld’s usually funny series, “Comedians In Cars Getting Coffee.”…Richards broke down at one point in the interview and expressed his ‘regret’ and opened up about his crazy attack on a heckler during his stand-up appearance at the Laugh Factory six years ago.
In case you forgot, Michael’s azz got caught on video yelling “Throw his ass out…He’s a n*****! Look there’s a n*****!”…since then, he was seen apologizing but for the last few years, he’s been laying low.
Snippets from the interview tell us just how remorseful Kramer’s felt. All of this makes us wonder…is he sorry for being racist or is he sorry that he got caught and the shady outburst ruined his career…
On the subject of being a “selfless” performer, he says: “That’s a lesson I learned…when I blew it in the comedy club. I lost my temper ‘cause somebody interrupted my act and said some things that hurt me and I lashed out in anger.
“I should have been working selflessly that evening…”It was a selfish response. I took it too personally and I should have just said: ‘Yeah, you’re absolutely right. I’m not funny. I think I’ll go home and work on my material and I’ll see you tomorrow night…
“But – you know – it was just one of those nights.”
He added: “I busted up after that event…It broke me down.”
Richards goes on to thank Seinfeld for publicly supporting, him, saying: “And thanks for sticking by me. It meant a lot to me…”But inside it still kicks me around…”
At one point during their meeting – as the two friends drive from Richards’ home to a Malibu coffee shop – the comedian suggests Seinfeld stop to drop in on his “friend” African-American boxer Sugar Ray Leonard.
But instead they go to the house of Ghost Whisperer actor Jay Mohr. At first Richards claims he made a “mistake,” before admitting to Seinfeld that he really doesn’t know Leonard at all.
We’re glad the man is still feeling apologetic and all…but we’re taking his ‘confessions of regret’ with a grain of salt.
