“Fifty years ago, we’d have you upside down with a f–king fork up your ass,

“You can talk, you can talk, you’re brave now, motherf–ker Throw his ass out. He’s a n—-r! He’s a n—-r!”

Fast forward 6 years from the incident and 13 years since Seinfeld, which earned him 3 Emmys, and we prove that America loves a comeback story.
