Former Seinfeld star appears to be very racist.

A couple A-listers demonstrated the art of the apology this week.

First, Justin Bieber was caught on tape telling a racist joke (when he was 15 years old) - but the singer quickly released a lengthy, heartfelt apology, dismissing his latest scandal far more easily than other recent slip-ups.

Jonah Hill then used an anti-gay insult to slam a cameraman, yet he also jumped on the issue and admitted his word choice was disgusting.

How do these mea culpas compare to past instances of regret exhibited by actors, artists and athletes?

Michael Richards is known for the iconic role of Kramer on Seinfeld. Unfortunately, he's been in the news for some very unfunny reasons in recent years.

There was the infamous n-word rant in 2006. Now the actor is accused, via a lawsuit, of unleashing a serious beating on a photographer in L.A. last month.

Brendon O'Neal claims Richards approached him on the street August 25 in a "menacing manner, with closed fists," then proceeded to beat him up badly.

Bad Cosmo. Very bad Cosmo.

O'Neal claims Richards punched him in the face, knocked him to the ground, and then went on to kick repeatedly at O'Neal's arms, hands, and camera.

O'Neal claims he suffered "great mental, physical, and nervous pain and suffering" - and is suing for unspecified damages, medical expenses, and more.

The lawsuit gives no explanation as to what triggered the alleged beating. It's a depressing story in any case ... but these Seinfeld quotes are hilarious!

Look, we're not on the side of Michael Richards.

The guy obviously has some anger and tolerance issues.

He makes Tom Cruise seem somewhat calm and normal.

But to the two men Richards offended during his racist rant last month at the Laugh Factory: get over yourselves.

You're not the first people to ever be insulted, you won't be the last. What, exactly, did you have to gain by appearing on national talk shows?

Oh, right, this heartfelt apology from the former Seinfeld star and your lawyer, Gloria Allred:

Michael Richards would like to apologize in person to the gentleman with whom he had the exchange in the club.

After discussions with Gloria Allred, an attorney who represents the man and three others who were with him that night, Michael has agreed that they will all meet in the presence of a retired judge who will facilitate the meeting and help the parties resolve this matter. All concerned are hopeful that a face-to-face meeting will be constructive and begin the necessary process of healing and closure.

Isn't that sweet? The chances that these fools aren't actually after Richards' money instead of this prepared statement are about as strong as the Kevin Federline reality show taking off.

We're guessing Mel Gibson was trying to help a fellow entertainer out. You know, one raving lunatic to another.

"I feel really badly for the guy. He was obviously in a state of stress," Gibson said about Michael Richards. "You don't need to be inebriated to be bent out of shape. But my heart went out to the guy."

He Looks So Normal Here

That's sweet. Jamie Foxx, meanwhile, wants his fists to go out to him.

For those living under a rock for the past few weeks: The former Seinfeld star was captured on a videocam spewing racial epithets after losing his temper during an appearance onstage at the Laugh Factory comedy club in Los Angeles.

He quickly followed up with an apology on the David Letterman Late Show, as well as with meetings with Rev. Al Sharpton and the Rev. Jesse Jackson, on whose syndicated radio program Richards appeared.

Gibson, of course, hates Jewish people. The two make a nice pair.

He told Entertainment Weekly, though, that people in Hollywood are not refusing to work with him.

"No, people aren't like that," he says. "Those are just the headlines: 'Mel ostracized by Hollywood! Hollywood is what you make it.' There is no great pooh-bah up there saying, 'Go! You are condemned!'"

Fortunately for Mel, recent nude Britney Spears pictures will help take attention away from his hateful ways. And probably everything else in the world.

He may have to get in line, however.

At some point, though, Jamie Foxx, the man who co-starred in Ali, would like to steal a pugilistic page from the most famous boxer of all-time.

The Foxx

At the American Music Awards last week, the actor was asked about former Seinfeld star and current racist, Michael Richards. He responded with:

"He would've had to put his dukes up, ... [Michael] probably should go get a private island somewhere, 'cause if I see him...!"

Foxx didn't finish that statement. We assume he's threatening to show Richards the director's cut of Stealth.

Meanwhile, the supposed comedian appeared on Jesse Jackson's radio show Sunday night.

As he tried to come across as less shady than Wilmer Valderrama, Richards expressed fears about today's youth and the impresion he may have left on them.

The good buddy of Jerry Seinfeld said "young whites will think it's cool" to use such hateful slurs because they see "very cool people in the show business" using the word freely.

Presumably, Richards wasn't referring to himself. We're pretty sure Isla Fisher is cooler these days.

The comparisons to Mel Gibson were inevitable.

When Michael Richards railed against African-Americans last week, we couldn't help but think of the Braveheart star that showed his disdain for Jewish people months earlier.

Now, it turns out, the derogatory duo may have more in common that we thought.

Two Los Angeles residents have come forward and told that Richards is an equal opportunity hater (no, not like Lindsay Lohan; she's an equal opportunity DATER).

The pair said last spring at L.A. comedy club, The Improv, the former Seinfeld star spewed ugly words in the direction of Moses' heirs.

Carol Oschin and J.P. Fillet say they were at The Improv on April 22 when Richards took the stage. They say that in the middle of Richards' skit, a man in the audience said something to the comedian, when Richards allegedly launched into an anti-Semitic rant.

According to Oschin, Richards screamed at the audience member: "You f***ing Jew. You people are the cause of Jesus dying."

And here other people thought Madonna was to blame for that incident.

Oschin says the rant continued until Richards stormed off the stage. Meanwhole, Richards' publicist, Howard Rubenstein, actually confirmed that his client did make negative comments about Jews, but says it was part of his act.

Right. That whole killing Jesus thing is hilarious. Almost as funny as being called homophobic by Rosie O'Donnell.

Despite an apology on The Late Show with David Letterman, Michael Richards should probably expect the backlash to continue for awhile.

Letterman's rival, Jay Leno, held nothing back in his monologues this week. A sampling of Leno's barbs:

Obama and Leno

I had a horrible gig last night: I had to follow Michael Richards at The Laugh Factory.

As you know, Michael Richards said some very offensive things at a comedy club the other night in Hollywood. People were booing, yelling, some got up and walked out. Of course, people waiting outside for the second show had no idea what was going on. They just assumed Carrot Top was on stage.

Until something such as a Britney Spears sex tape takes over the news, the man known as Kramer can probably expect to dominate headlines for awhile.

His racial slurs have even overshadowed the fact that Santa Claus is having an affair with both Katharine McPhee AND Sienna Miller. That's quite the feat.

If the recent Michael Richards saga has taught us anything... it's that Mel Gibson is probably the happiest person on earth right now.

Well, that's not true. Even Mel would probably be appalled at Richards' racist tirade from the other night at the Laugh Factory comedy club. But perhaps a small part of Gibson was pulling for something like this... just so he could shed the label of Biggest Bigot in Hollywood.

Poor Insane Mel

And perhaps a small part of the former Seinfeld star, who showed off a disturbing inner hatred, was inspired by Mel's antics earlier this summer, when the Passion of the Christ director was pulled over for speeding and launched into a shockingly memorable drunken, anti-Semetic rant at the Malibu police station.

Now maybe Kramer will send flowers to "Sugar Tits," the female cop that Gibson accosted on that fateful night, as well, Of course, she was not the only person who needed an apology after Gibson's behavior. And Richards owes the tens of millions of African-Americans in the U.S. a lot more than a bouquet and some random remarks to David Letterman.

A day after his racist tirade was made public, Michael Richards publicly apologized.

Appearing via satellite (pictured) on The Late Show with David Letterman, the actor made some odd remarks. He acknowledged that such sentiment had the potential to "come[s] through and fire[s] out of me."

Letterman in Action

He then tried to find an awkward parallel between his ugly rant and conflict that has arisen between blacks and whites since Hurricane Katrina.

Jerry Seinfeld was on the program and actually told the audience to stop laughing at his friend. Richards said he lost his temper after some members of the audience interrupted his act and that he "took it badly," unleashing the racist invective that TMZ first aired yesterday morning.

He apologized to the people who took "the brunt" of his abuse, saying he was "really busted up," but then went on a strange tangent on race relations, saying he was "concerned about hate and rage" and about a "great deal of disturbance between blacks and whites" after Hurricane Katrina.

The remarks were random; not as random as things that Stephen Baldwin says. But still pretty darn random.

Richards did not say whether any other factors contributed to his actions, adding only that he would be doing "personal work" in the aftermath of the incident.

Any fan of Seinfeld is dismayed over the news that Michael Richards is a raving racist. Kramer's pratfalls and goofy expressions might never seem as funny as they once were.

So you can imagine how former co-star and sitcom namesake himself, Jerry Seinfeld, feels about the hate-filled diatribe. Actually, you don't have to imagine. Here's his statement:

I am sick over this. I'm sure Michael is also sick over this horrible, horrible mistake. It is so extremely offensive. I feel terrible for all the people who have been hurt.

Even white trash such as Kevin Federline knows not to say - or think - the things Richards spewed. The actor makes our misguided, incessant hatred for Lindsay Lohan seem rational.
