George Wallace and Arsenio Hall Defend Jerry Seinfeld's Comedy Diversity Comments


Last night on The Arsenio Hall Show, Hall and guest George Wallace took a few moments to defend Jerry Seinfeld a month after he made some headline-grabbing comments on diversity in comedy. Wallace talked about how far back his friendship goes with Seinfeld, who he's known longer than his own mother: "You can't have a better friend than Jerry Seinfeld, let me tell you that right now." Hall also mentioned that focusing on Seinfeld "muddies the water of where there are true issues that need to be dealt with." Instead of discussing some of those issues further, Wallace went on to tell a story about the time Seinfeld convinced him to buy an expensive NYC apartment. Case closed?
