"I'm not a racist. That's what's so insane about this," Richards said, his tone becoming angry and frustrated as he defended himself.
He's got to be kidding, right? How can he expect anyone to believe this after spewing the kind of venom he did?
At one point, however, Richards grew flustered and expressed second thoughts about appearing on the program when his use of the term "Afro-American" caused some audience members to laugh.
"I'm hearing your audience laugh and I'm not even sure that this is where I should be addressing the situation," he said.
Don't waste your breath apologizing pal, you're finished. Whatever comedy career you had left is over and done now.
What an idiot. And a hateful one at that.
