Jalopnik is reporting that comedian and fan of not saying the N-word (good for you, Jerry), Jerry Seinfeld, is in trouble. And unlike most comedians these days, it’s not for saying ragingly offensive nonsense. Jerry is getting sued for allegedly selling a fake Porsche at auction. Girl, don’t you know you need to check the tags before making such a purchase! I had the same issue with a Chanel purse I got at a flea market one time, but in my defence: those two Os looked very convincingly like two Cs!
Here’s Chris Rock Enabling Louis CK And Ricky Gervais To Use The N-Word While Jerry Seinfeld Prays For Death
Making the rounds is an old clip of Chris Rock, human tug-of-war Louis CK, professional irritant Ricky Gervais, and a very uncomfortable-looking Jerry Seinfeld discussing the usage of the n-word in professional comedy and, I guess, personally? ET posted this, and if those edible panties you got in the office’s Yankee Swap haven’t given you enough in the way of cringe fuel this holiday season, this clip should do it.
If you think Kevin Hart is still smarting from his self-dismissal and public flogging after that Oscar hosting debacle, think again. Kevin Hart don’t give a fuck. He’s the second highest-paid comedian in the entire world, according to Forbes, and can afford to buy his own internet that’s just him and Nick Cannon sending cute GIFs back and forth. No, Kevin is not bothered in the least. He’s so rich he’s standing on an apple crate and laughing into a gilded mirror, pointing at himself like “You the man, dog!”, “no YOU the man!”. Yes, Kevin’s laughing all the way to the bank, and jumping up and down so the teller can see he’s there.
Today, if you wanted to watch a TV show about nothing starring a bunch of selfish assholes, you’d probably turn on Keeping Up With The Kardashians. But in the 90s, there’s a 99.999999% chance you’d be watching Seinfeld. Jerry Seinfeld announced that the ninth and final season of Seinfeld would air in 1998. NBC wanted Jerry to stick around, but nothing could have kept him, not even the promise of $5 million an episode.
A month ago, an extremely awkward and random celebrity interaction happened after Kesha tried really hard to give Jerry Seinfeld a hug on the red carpet of the National Night Of Laughter And Song event in DC. Jerry reacted to Kesha like she was the script for Bee Movie 2; he was not having it. Jerry claimed afterwards that he didn’t know who Kesha was and that he doesn’t hug strangers. We’ve now got Kesha’s side of the story.
It’s kind of weird that today’s Comey Hearing wasn’t pushed to a later date so that the Hugs Hearings could go down, because I would think that all branches of government would want to get to the bottom of why Jerry Seinfeld didn’t want to hug Kesha. But my fellow non-hugger Jerry did talk to AJ Calloway from Extra and explained why he didn’t want to touch chests with that strange blond fan.
