MICHAEL RICHARDS: HE'S NO KRAMER
Michael Richards’ tirade at the Laugh factory isn’t the first time he’s LOST IT with minimal provocation. In fact, his nasty temper is legendery. A few years ago he was eating solo at an Italian restaurant on Melrose Avenue when a middle aged couple walked in. The woman spotted “Kramer” and excitedly asked the host if they could be seated at the next table. As they were seating themselves, the woman said “I hope you don’t mind if we sit here – we’re big fans of yours!” To everyone’s shock, Richards roared “YES, I MIND IF YOU SIT THERE! I’m not some animal in the zoo to be stared at!” The scared woman assured him “We’ll sit somewhere else.” He yelled “I don’t give a F— WHERE you go!” She put her hand his shoulder to calm him and he shouted “Don’t touch me!” The terrified couple backed off to a corner and the restaurant paid for their dinner. Everyone was frozen in their seats, terrifed to look, when Michael finished and stood up to leave. But he walked out smiling and said goodbye to the cook. We think it’s time for anger management counseling.
