A comedian under fire for hurling racial epithets at blacks once similarly attacked Jews, fans said.
Two comedy fans told the showbiz Web site TMZ.com last week that Michael Richards, who played Kramer on Seinfeld, attacked a man speaking during his performance last April as a "f------ Jew" and said "You people are the cause of Jesus dying."
The two fans wondered at the time if the slurs were part of the act, but came forward after Richards launched a racist attack on two black men who heckled him during his performance last week.
Richards' publicist confirmed the April incident, but said it was indeed part of the act, unlike the more recent attack on blacks.
