MICHAEL RICHARDS STILL TROUBLED OVER N WORD

Michael Richards said Sunday he did not consider himself a racist, and said he was "shattered" by the comments he made to two young black men during a tirade at a Los Angeles comedy club. Richards appeared on the Rev. Jesse Jackson's nationally syndicated radio program, Keep Hope Alive, as a part of a series of apologies for the incident. He said he knew his comments hurt the black community, and hoped to meet with the two men. He told Jackson that he had not used the language before. "That's why I'm shattered by it. The way this came through me was like a freight train. After it was over, when I went to look for them, they had gone. And I've tried to meet them, to talk to them, to get some healing," he said. Richards, who played Jerry Seinfeld's neighbor Kramer on the TV show Seinfeld, was performing at Hollywood's Laugh Factory when he lashed out at hecklers and used the N----- word. Richards told Jackson the tirade was fueled by anger, not bigotry. He said, "I was in a place of humiliation." Richards' publicist, Howard Rubenstein, said Saturday that Richards has begun psychiatric counseling in Los Angeles to learn how to manage his anger and understand why he made the racist remarks.

MORE TROUBLE FOR RICHARDS FOR N-WORD

Two men who say they were insulted by actor-comedian Michael Richards during his racist rant at a comedy club want a personal apology and maybe some money, one of the men and their lawyer said Friday. Frank McBride and Kyle Doss said they were part of a group of about 20 people who had gathered at West Hollywood's Laugh Factory to celebrate a friend's birthday. According to their attorney, Gloria Allred, they were ordering drinks when Richards berated them for interrupting his act. When one of their group replied that he wasn't funny, Richards launched into a string of obscenities and repeatedly used the n-word. A video cell phone captured the outburst. Richards, who played Jerry Seinfeld's wacky neighbor Kramer on the TV sitcom "Seinfeld," made a nationally televised apology on the "Late Show with David Letterman" earlier this week. He has since apologized to the Revs. Jesse Jackson and Al Sharpton, both civil rights leaders. But Doss, 26, said Friday he wanted a "face-to-face apology." "To have him do what he did to me ... I can't even explain it," Doss said. "I was humiliated, even scared at one point." Richards' publicist said his client wants to apologize to both men, who are black, but hasn't been able to locate them.

MICHAEL RICHARDS HIRES PUBLICIST FOR DAMAGE CONTROL

Michael Richards is doing damage control. In the aftermath of his racist tirade against two black hecklers during a stand up comedy routine, Richards on Wednesday hired a publicist with strong ties to the black community who set up calls to the Revs. Jesse Jackson and Al Sharpton. New York publicist Howard Rubenstein (Left) took on Richards as a client, then arranged for the actor to call the black leaders. "Michael apologized profusely," Rubenstein said. "He wants to heal the tremendous wound that he's inflicted on the American public, and on the African-American community. ... I think it was a positive discussion." Jackson said Richards called "expressing his remorse and his confusion." "He's embarrassed. He got caught on tape. That's a big part of his anxiety now," said Jackson. "Clearly he needs some race sensibility training, and some psychiatric help. His anger is volatile and dangerous to himself and others," Jackson said. "I hope he gets the help he needs. But the culture that's producing this kind of animosity toward blacks must be addressed. ... We're increasingly facing cultural isolation in Hollywood, in the movies and in TV."

Celebrity-news website TMZ.com released Richards' video on Friday showing his performance.The tirade apparently began after two black audience members started shouting at him that he wasn't funny."He made a comment that 50 years ago African-Americans would have been hanging from a tree with a fork stuck up their rear end," said Najee Ali, executive director of Project Islamic, a civil-rights group."Fifty years later, we're saying to Mr Richards that that's unacceptable hate speech and that that type of rhetoric which caused many blacks to be hanged and lynched, because of intolerance," added Ali. He said the group would be expecting an apology or they would hold public demonstrations against Richards.
