Mel Gibson added insult to injury in an interview which was published today, August 13th. Like many sociopaths, Mel blamed others for his predicament, implying that he since he has done nothing wrong there is no reason for Hollywood to forgive him. Mel said that he since he really did nothing wrong Hollywood should simply forget that they hate him and move on. “They have to forget. I don’t even think they’re vindictive. I don’t think they think there’s reason to forgive,” Mel told Comingsoon.net.
Well bad luck for Mel, Hollywood, and the entertainment industry in general, have many Jewish people involved. It is hard to forget Mel’s well publicized anti-Semitic rants – even for non-Jews. Not only has Mel proven himself to be a hard-core anti-Semite on several occasions but in his recorded attacks on Oksana Grigorieva he displays a nasty racist tone.
Mel, 56, has had a rocky few years — he was caught in an expletive and racist tirade against his baby mama Oksana Grigorieva in audio tapes released to the public exclusively by RadarOnline.com, he was again caught on tape playing into Maccabees screenwriter Joe Eszterhaus calling him a “f**king c**t” among other things, and then just last month his step-mother filed for a restraining order against the actor citing he spit in her face.
“So it’s kind of hard to pinpoint exactly what needs to be forgiven and I don’t consider that anything does because I didn’t hurt anyone,” Mel continued. “But you know, hey that’s life. It ain’t easy and it’s not fair. You’ve just got to slip the old water off the back and move on.”
The Maccabees was touted to be Mel’s big comeback to Hollywood, but he and the screenwriter got into it when Joe accused him of making anti-Semitic remarks, calling the Holocaust “horsesh*t.”
Mel makes great films and he sure can act – you can’t take that away from him. But the guy is pretty much of a crazy nut which shows, once again, that talent and genius don’t necessarily correlate with good character.
