Very sad

Michael Richards, aka Kramer, went nuts on stage the other night. In response to some hecklers, he started dropping the n-word left and right (and made a few other awful racist comments). Here is the video of this sad episode. I imagine he will be checking into rehab in the next few days, and we will certainly be getting some form of apology shortly.

His career hasn't done much since Seinfeld, and while he should he have nothing to worry about financially the rest of his life, this may have ended any chance he had of getting some other big role in the future. At least we'll always have Kramer to laugh with.

Update: Michael Richards appeared on Letterman last night to apologize for his tirade. You can view it here. He is very disturbed by what occurred in this somewhat rambling albeit seemingly sincere apology. I hope he gets the help he needs.
