Michael Richards rants against Black Friday; retailers call for apology.

"I'm fried!"
Michael Richards, famously known as Cosmo Kramer on the popular sitcom Seinfeld, apologised Saturday for spewing hateful epithets during a stand-up comedy act against various big name chains during Black Friday, the busiest shopping day of the year.

"For me to be at a comedy club and flip out and say this crap, I'm deeply, deeply sorry," Richards said. "I don't hate shopping. That's what's so insane about this."

Richards had apparently been in a dispute with WAL*MART and Target over his coffee table book about coffee tables coffee table, which prompted him to yell, "Shut up! Fifty years ago we'd have you upside down with a f------ fork up your a--!"
"Keep that AIDS ribbon away from me!"
Richards also ranted against McDonald's, which refused to sell his ketchup and mustard bottle, Calvin Klein for stealing his beach-smelling cologne idea and the New York Metropolitan Transportation Authority for rejecting his suggestion that the homeless pull rickshaws to cut down on air pollution.
