In the November 2006 incident, which was caught on camera, Richards screamed at a heckler in his audience and referred to the critic as a “n****r.” The video was filmed at the Laugh Factory in West Hollywood, where Richards had been invited to perform a standup comedy routine. Since the career-ending incident, Richards has largely remained in hiding since he has found it practically impossible to land a job.

In the alarming footage, Michael Richards hurls racial slurs and abuse at the critic, demanding that security at the comedy club do his bidding and “Throw his ass out… He’s a n*****! Look there’s a n*****!”

When speaking to Seinfeld about being a “selfless” comedy performer during the pity interview, Richards said, “That’s a lesson I learned… when I blew it in the comedy club. I lost my temper because somebody interrupted my act and said some things that hurt me, and I lashed out in anger.”

He added, “I should have been working selflessly that evening. It was a selfish response. I took it too personally, and I should have just said: ‘Yeah, you’re absolutely right. I’m not funny. I think I’ll go home and work on my material, and I’ll see you tomorrow night.’ But – you know – it was just one of those nights.”

Richards admitted, “I busted up after that event… It broke me down.”

Seinfeld publicly supported Richards following his racist outburst. During the 2012 appearance on the interview format show, he thanked the billionaire, saying: “And thanks for sticking by me. It meant a lot to me. ‘But inside, it still kicks me around.”
