Michael Richards: "You're a f***ing Jew. Your people are the cause of Jesus dying."

michaelrichardsAP_228x606.jpg
Clockwise from bottom right: a Fucking Jew; a Filthy Jewess;
a Christ-Killing Hebe; and beloved comic Michael Richards.

Hmmm...

I don't know. Isn't Michael Richards Jewish?

Either he's

a) crazier than we thought

b) more broadly racist than we thought

or

c) actually doing some kind of Andy Kaufmann-ish edgy schtick that he thought people would get.

You'd think if he really were an anti-semite, some of that would have come out during Seinfeld. I mean -- come on. How much can one man take? It's like Mel Gibson spending nine straight years at Woody Allen's Seder.

I think maybe it's a little of a, b, and c.

Yes, He's Jewish: Last paragraph of this article confirms it.

As that article is about his hiring of a crisis counsellor, I wonder if the first step in fixing the crisis was deliberately leaking the "fucking Jew" quote from Richards' own camp. It does suggest that he sometimes bursts into "racist ravings" in some kind of Andy Kauffman thing.

He was obviously angry during the outburst that started all of this, so it seems hard to believe he was doing schtick during his moment of rage. But it might be that he says things like that in order to do a schtick sometimes, and in his anger, he reverted to old material which might sound funny when it's obvious the comedian is joking, but sounds pretty nasty when he's trying to deliberately denigrate a black man.

I think he's kind of crazy anyway. He's always come across very odd in interviews. So who knows what he actually thinks.

In Related News... Mel Gibson announced he wished to distance himself from "some" of Richards' remarks.
