(Los Angeles:California) - Laugh Factory of Los Angeles California, produced no laughing matter with the recent follow up persecution of the two hecklers who threw forth derogatory racially charged insults to Michael Richards (formerly known as Cosmo Kramer of the Seinfeld series) while on stage.
Richards public persecution for the on stage rant and his public apology has preceded public outcry for equal opportunity apologies and an investigation by the EEOC in Washington for possible infractions of Title VII (Richards was legally employed by the club).
In depth analysis of an exclusive secret video, shot by one of the audience members, showed that Michaels erupted in anger after being called by an audience member a lowlife "cracker" and returned an equally racially charged comment elaborating on the same subject matter using the "N" word, even though such referenced events took place many years ago, that neither the heckler or comedian Richards were party to.
Spokesperson from the association of afro American slang states that the term "cracker" has dual meaning, including a saltine useful for dipping in the soup, and a slang term common to 19th Century African Americans who referred to slavemasters as "crackers" due to the sound of whip and therefore this term has extremely negative connotation.
Likewise the "N word" began life as just a color, but is also an equally derogatory racially charged word used to describe African Americans and African Americans their peers. EEOC correspondent says both words are politically incorrect and federal laws, not enforced by EEOC, also prohibit discrimination or use of the "C" or "N" word by US citizens and individuals who use such words both should be equally persecuted.
Gloria Allred, the attorney who represents the five comedy club patrons, after learning about the true origin of the word "cracker" is now demanding an apology by her clients to Richards and is returning the retainer and hourly fees earned from the hecklers based on her impeccable moral character.
Laugh factor Comedy club owner is on the other hand laughing all the way to the bank and stated, that "reaction by Michaels was surprising but the publicity has been great and we need to have more scapegoats for issues that we have, because clearly it is much too much pain for the millions of us to face our own inner sins and personal prejudices".
Comedy club marketing executive stated "future sales are dependent upon our ability to find other scapegoats for key critical political issues. Future plans include finding suitable axis of evil comedians who can take the blame for world hunger, war, third world poverty and other world problems" To which nearby audio recipient of referenced conversation responds "comedy is no longer funny".
