I'm not condoning his actions. It's obvious he was on edge and should have just walked away but instead, took the low road.
See above. He's not Mel Gibson. He hasn't had multiple instances of public or overt racism. He had a bad day and made a bad choice.
Again, not condoning, just recognizing the facts.
I don't think that's "okay" on CP. As a matter of fact, I think it's a bannable offense, as it should be.
You lost me here. What exactly are you referencing?
Yeah, it just bothers me that the tirade wasnt in joke form at all. it looked and sounded very real, which is scary considering hate crimes and the mob mentality that some people have.
Just arguing about Kramers legacy.
I could be wrong but I dont see him getting another shot on a major network. I dont think advertisers will risk a boycott or really low ratings by backing this guy. Those are the cosequences i was referring to. I know its not tolerated on CP either but you can say racist things and the world will never know. But in real life, depending on your industry, there could be repercussions for what you say.
