Michael Richards on 'Late Show With David Letterman' (2006)

During a stand-up set at the Laugh Factory in Hollywood, comedian Michael Richards responded to a couple of hecklers with a barrage of racial slurs. When video of the outburst went viral, Richards made a satellite appearance on "Late Show" during his friend (and former "Seinfeld" co-star) Jerry Seinfeld's guest spot. Richards began to apologize -- "To flip out and say this crap, I'm deeply, deeply sorry" -- but some of the audience was not aware of what had happened and started giggling, assuming the heartfelt apology was another crazy stunt from the kooky comedian. Seinfeld admonished the audience, "It's not funny."
