Targets of Kramer's Abuse Speak Out!

Hear what the tape missed. They have Gloria Allred on the case and they are planning to sue.

Re: Targets of Kramer's Abuse Speak Out!

i really wish gloria had stayed out of it. she knows she has no legal merit for a case, but still wants to make money of this, and those young people seem telly intellegent but look like they are just pissed and dont know what to do next and there comes gloria,

WOW! Michael Richards is really an asshole. Wonder what the people that have been sticking up for him have to say now. There is no way that it can be said that Kramer is not racist.

Gloria Allred is a real shark. The only good thing about it is without her they probably wouldn't have been able to get on the Today show to tell their side. Before hearing them, it seemed like they were taunting Richards. It proves what George Lopez said in an interview that the tirate by Richards was uncalled for.

He's a racist and got busted.

Re: Targets of Kramer's Abuse Speak Out!

The fact that they are trying to get money out of Richard's isn't as absurd as the tirade, but it isn't far off.

I love how the last image shows Gloria grinning. As if it was to say, man we will be getting a lot of money thanks to this.

The tirade was completely inexcusable. Period.

However, Gloria knows this claim has no legal merit. None. That is why she is proposing to throw a "retired judge" into the mix. She is hoping Kramer tosses some cash her way in order to try and gain something in the court of public opinion. Which, he may, I suppose. It still won't even come close to making me a fan of his again.

Re: Targets of Kramer's Abuse Speak Out!

I kinda feel bad for him...you could tell he was mad, but at first it seemed he was doing it in a joking way. Even the crowd laughed the first few times he said the (N) word. He let his emotion get to him.

Unfortunately now he will not be working, in the USA at least, again.

Re: Targets of Kramer's Abuse Speak Out!

Haven't read what was especifically said, but no one deserves to be judged solely on one isolated event--especially during an outburst, during which emotions may overcome your actual thoughts to such a degree that you may even misrepresent them.

If he is a closeted racist, this allegation should be assessed based on a holistic approach, not a single moment of irrationality. If people who know him and have worked with him over the years indeed manifest that he has clearly shown racist inclinations, then I'll be convinced.

Failing that, he said some really stupid shit, apologized and will (probably unfairly) be more than victimized by the faux-politically-correct US media.

Cheers,

Now that he's getting sued, this whole thing has the potential to tear race relations in America apart [once again...a la the OJ Trial].
This thing needs to die quickly, IMHO.
I hope they change their minds and drop the charges. Richards isn't worth the trouble.
