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 TMZ.com 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.
