More on Mel Gibson

Bad Max is getting a taste of his own medicine. The anti-Semetic actor who unleashed a tirade of hate directed at Jews when he was arrested Friday morning in Malibu for drunk driving has already lost one major gig.

Get this: ABC, which had had plans to co-produce a TV miniseries about the Holocaust with Mel Gibson, cancelled the collaboration, due to the actor's comments. A Holocaust miniseries? You've got to be kidding! This sounds more like a late-night Jay Leno joke.

But the joke's on Gibson, who upon being arrested, asked the officer if he was Jewish and then inexplicably remarked, "Fucking Jews. Jews are responsible for all the wars in the world."

“I don’t think he should be doing a film on the Holocaust,” stated Rabbi Marvin Hier, founder of the Simon Wiesenthal Center. “It would be like asking someone associated with the KKK to do a movie on the African-American experience.”

Check out TMZ.com, who broke this story, and today's report in the Wall Street Journal.


Hmmmm, I never would've pegged Bad Max as anti-semitic or a raving drunk driver for that matter. (Word on the street is that he was swilling tequila.)
