Protesters Tear Down Statue of Michael Richards Outside Hollywood Laugh Factory

“What’s the deal with all these protesters knocking down statues?”

LOS ANGELES — Minutes before sunset on Friday evening, a crowd of protesters outside the Hollywood Laugh Factory cheered as a statue of comedian Michael Richards (of Seinfeld fame) was torn to the ground. The statue was built to commemorate Richards’ infamous n-word-riddled tirade at that same Laugh Factory in 2006.
