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:

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.
