Williams Urges Calm Over Richards Rant

Movie funnyman ROBIN WILLIAMS has offered his support to SEINFELD star MICHAEL RICHARDS, after his racist tirade against two audience members at a comedy club. Richards outraged the crowd at Hollywood's Laugh Factory and then the showbiz world when he shouted down two black hecklers on 17 November (06), calling them "n**gers". He has apologised on live TV and radio but it has done little to calm the anger towards his actions. But Williams urges critics to go easy on the 57-year-old. He says, "I just hope everything will be okay. He said stupid stuff and he's apologised for it. I don't think he is that way."
