It’s been known for a long time in Hollywood that Mel Gibson is potentially a hater of the Jewish community. Back in 2006, when he was arrested for a DUI, he asked the arresting officer if he was a Jew, and then said, “The Jews are responsible for all the wars in the world.”
His career took a hit after that, but he’s still around and still making movies. That might be changing soon though, because Winona Ryder just called him out again.
In a recent interview with the Sunday Times, Ryder claimed Gibson made anti-Semitic and anti-gay comments at a party several years ago.
We were at a crowded party with one of my good friends. And Mel Gibson was smoking a cigar, and we’re all talking and he said to my friend, who’s gay, ‘Oh wait, am I gonna get AIDS?’ And then something came up about Jews, and he said, ‘You’re not an oven dodger, are you?’
She claims that Gibson tried to apologize to her later.
Of course, Gibson and his team are denying the whole thing. A rep for the actor sent out the following statement:
This is 100% untrue. She lied about it over a decade ago, when she talked to the press, and she’s lying about it now. She lied about him trying to apologize to her back then. He did reach out to her, many years ago, to confront her about her lies and she refused to address it with him.
I don’t know, man. It doesn’t seem like that much of a stretch, considering he was saying sh*t like that to the police.
Why should we believe him now?
