"I lashed out in anger," Michael Richards admits to his former "Seinfeld" costar of infamous 2006 incident
Michael Richards reunites with his "Seinfeld" costar Jerry Seinfeld in the season finale of Seinfeld's web-video series "Comedians in Cars Getting Coffee." A lot of wacky hijinks ensue — including a botched effort to visit the home of boxing great Sugar Ray Leonard — but the episode takes a serious turn when the duo discusses Richards' 2006 onstage meltdown at Los Angeles' Laugh Factory, during which the actor tossed off N-bombs like the grand wizard at a Klan rally.
“I blew it in the comedy club," Richards admits to Seinfeld during the sit-down. "I lashed out in anger.”
Richards goes on to admit that he's been wary of taking to the stage ever since the incident.
"I busted up after that event," Richards says. "It broke me down."
Watch Seinfeld and Richards get together and discuss good times and bad times in the video.
