The Breakfast Club star Anthony Michael Hall has become the latest star caught up in a race row after hurling abuse at a Hispanic fan on Wednesday night (10JAN07).
The former Brat Pack star was caught on video using the 'N' word while greeting fans outside Los Angeles' Laugh Factory, where Seinfeld star Michael Richards hit the headlines for repeating the word during a race rant aimed at two African-American hecklers last year (NOV06).
Laid-back Hall just thought he was blending in as the Hispanic fan asked to have his photo taken with the star.
He joked, "I am scared of this n**ger right here," adding, "What up n**ger?" to another fan seconds later.
The video was later sold to website TMZ.com.
One fan at the scene says, "There was no malice involved. The guy was just trying to be cool."
