While I think that Richards was in the wrong at the time, I've seen and heard far worse at Comedy Clubs.
Wow, youre probably older than me, but ive been to a ton of comedy clubs and never heard anything this bad. Not just because im black, but because this weak minded buffoon completly stopped his comedy routine and got all the way emotional.
Of course ive heard racist and sexist jokes come from comedians of multiple ethnicities, but when you completely breakdown and stop your routine to remind an audience member that "50 years ago you would be hanging from a rope right now" or some stupid shit like that, with all the seriousness and malice he could muster up, well thats some damning shit.
OK for anonymous CP members hiding behind keyboards, but not ok for celebrities in the public eye benefitting from public advertising money.
