WARNING: WHAT YOU ARE ABOUT TO SEE IS PROFANE AND RACIAL

Michael Richards exploded in anger as he performed at a famous L.A. comedy club last Friday, hurling racial epithets that left the crowd gasping, and TMZ has obtained exclusive video of the ugly incident.

Richards, who played the wacky Cosmo Kramer on the hit TV show "Seinfeld," appeared onstage at the Laugh Factory in West Hollywood. It appears two guys, both African-American, were in the cheap seats playfully heckling Richards when suddenly, the comedian lost it.

Something snapped. I hope he saved his money, cause he's done.

Wow....talk about career suicide. That was vicious. It's amazing how some people just don't understand how powerful that word is. What did he possibly expect there??? However, racist is racist and if you're going to call out Richards (deservedly so) you gotta call out the guy he was taunting too. He didn't exactly take the high road.

Heckling rules. But didn't the guy call Kramer a cracker or was that him saying it to himself? I think racial comedy is funny personally (don't care if it's Kramer or down the food chain to Simply Marvelous). This wasn't funny though. I couldn't read the captions (poor quality video on my end). :shrug:

I wish they would have shown what those guys were doing/saying...

[not implying that it may have warranted Richard's rant ;) ]

The man was trying to do his act and got rudely interrupted. They had no respect for him, why should he have respect for them? Why is bad behavior accetable for them and unforgiveable for him? They started it.

Richards had a pretty long hiatus between Fridays (anyone remember that show?) and Seinfeld.

He'll do just fine.

From what I saw, it was a deliberate respose, a gut-punch to the hecklers intended to offend them on the deepest level possible as quickly as possible..skip the foreplay.
