The video is split between 2 scenes and the 1 big roar of laughter heard is from, what I think, is a joke that got cut off so all you heard was the laughter. Not that I'm defending him but I doubt people are laughing THAT much when he's tossing around slurs like that. The guy got lucky no one shot him!

The way it was presented in the news, you figure he made a couple of off-color jokes or something. Man he completely lost it. It was uncomfortable to watch, as it was like witnessing somebody lose it and snap and lash out. There was no joke or anything funny in that.

I truly wonder now if he was on some kind of drug, because that is just not normal behavior.

One of the blogs under the video said that wasn't Kramer...one of the guys just thought it was him...I don't know, but it didn't sound like him to me.

EDIT: I guess it really was him...a$$wipe:

That was really quite a disturbing tirade.

Let me guess, he'll confess that he has a problem and go into rehab within a week.

Yep, apparently he is on Letterman tonight. Wonder if he'll get boo'ed? I don't think I'll last that long tonight...

Seemed really pathetic on Letterman. He's lucky Jerry hooked it up. However you don't just randomly say things without merit. He thinks less of black people, it came out, now he's acting like he's super sorry when in reality he's sorry his career is ruined.

Another Hollywood chump.

He can apologize and say anything he wants but what he said was racist and mean. He can hide under the comedian umbrella and claim he was only joking but it was clear that he was saying what he felt at the time. I hope is career is over.

That apology came out for one reason only: Seinfeld and Larry David must have torn him a new one about pulling this stunt right before the Season 7 DVD was released.

The way I look at it is this: it's one thing to drop an n-bomb accidentally if you're worked up. Not acceptable, but forgiveable, just like dropping an f-bomb in front of your mom. But he went KKK. You don't pull out that kind of filth accidentally. The hatred he spouted reflects an embarassment of the causcasian race: intolerance to the point of violence. He embarassed white people everywhere by bringing this biggotry back up.

The lynching days are a part of history that I (as a white man) find offensive and embarassing. They shaped views about our kind that have been hard to over come.

So I think that the hate is in him, but Jerry must have really laid into him about the financial repercussions. You could tell that Jerry would have wiped his hands clean of Kramer had all the DVDs already been released.
