Andy Dick Drops N-Bombs

Andy was heckling comedian Ian Bagg during his routine, when Dick allegedly got out of his seat, jumped onstage and began joking with Bagg. The subject of Michael Richards came up, but the two comics quickly moved past it. As Dick exited the stage, he suddenly grabbed the mic and shouted at the crowd, “You’re all a bunch of niggers!”

There’s no video of this one, so I can only rely on the picture I’ve formed in my head. And I don’t know, maybe I’m a racist, because the picture I’m forming is hilarious. I mean: “You’re all a bunch of niggers”? How stupid is that? So stupid. And how racist? This isn’t like Michael Richards, who was addressing two black men and using the word on them specifically.

On the other hand, Andy Dick is pretty often not funny at all and just outrageous for its own sake. So this probably wasn’t nearly the brilliant, pretense-blowing moment I’m imagining. And of course, a big part of whether an outrageous joke is offensive or not depends on whether it’s funny or not. Which was really Michael Richards’ biggest crime.
