The passion of the drunken anti-Semite
UPDATE: I’ve added the passion of the Freepi below.
[I was up at 5AM and saw this (don’t ask — the dogs got me up), but was too tired to post.]
TMZ has four pages of the original report prepared by the arresting officer in the case, L.A. County Sheriff’s Deputy James Mee. According to the report, Gibson became agitated after he was stopped on Pacific Coast Highway and told he was to be detained for drunk driving Friday morning in Malibu. The actor began swearing uncontrollably. Gibson repeatedly said, “My life is f****d.”
And then the fun begins, for the misogynist, conservative actor/director.
Once inside the car, a source directly connected with the case says Gibson began banging himself against the seat. The report says Gibson told the deputy, “You mother f****r. I’m going to f*** you.” The report also says “Gibson almost continually [sic] threatened me saying he ‘owns Malibu’ and will spend all of his money to ‘get even’ with me.”
The report says Gibson then launched into a barrage of anti-Semitic statements: “F*****g Jews… The Jews are responsible for all the wars in the world.” Gibson then asked the deputy, “Are you a Jew?“
The deputy became alarmed as Gibson’s tirade escalated, and called ahead for a sergeant to meet them when they arrived at the station. When they arrived, a sergeant began videotaping Gibson, who noticed the camera and then said, “What the f*** do you think you’re doing?”
A law enforcement source says Gibson then noticed another female sergeant and yelled, “What do you think you’re looking at, sugar tits?”
Nice. TMZ has part of the arrest report, lest some PR flak tries to deny the incident occurred.
And here is the Passion of the Freepi for you. It starts off with disbelief, and as the reports come in, they are ready to cut the cord…
What do you mean he’s done? You obviously don’t know or understand Hollywood that well. His stock will just go up! Hollywood REWARDS those who do this type of crap. What I don’t like is, if true, that he went on an anti Semitic tirade let alone berating the cops. Besides, Mel doesnt’ need hollywood to make movies. He proved that with Passion of the Christ. Too bad Marlon Brando isn’t still alive. Both him and mel would have been great together on Larry King blaming everything on the Jews! (that’s sarcasm for some of your humorless conservatives on here).
I hope it’s fake. I like Gibson and most of his movies. I almost never boycott people for their political views. But I won’t give dollar one to an anti semite.
I’m not even a huge fan of the man, but unless they have it on tape, I don’t buy it.
It seems as though ALL those Hollyweird types these days are a collection of weirdo creeps. If this is true, he’s screwed himself and all his films. What a jer@#@#&*$@!!
Assuming this account is true, you can’t just explain his behavior away by saying he’s HUMAN. His remarks are more than just being human. It’s like you saying Terrorists that blow themselves up to kill innocent women and children are just human.
If that was true I’d say he picked a bad time to use hillbilly cocaine, crank, and crystal meth.
True, but I don’t think “Jew comments” show up in your average police report, either. They usually say “the suspect was combative” or “the suspect was verbally abusive.” Seldom do they go into this much detail. My BS beeber is set to stune.
I am telling you i don’t think he’ll be done. Hollywood will shrug it off. He makes people money and they’ll allow him to to get drunk, spew off anti jew speech, or even molest little choir boys. As long as he puts butts in the movie theater seats, he’s Christ and can do no wrong.
For what it’s worth, a local SoCal TV station just went on the air basically confirming this version of the arrest (although not providing quite so much detail). They cited additional sources “at the Sheriff’s department”.
Oh please let it be he was researching another movie? Desperately seeking a better reason for this foolishness.
Possibly true, but also sounds like a hit job manufactured by people who want to get Mel Gibson and pin an anti-semitism label on him. BTW I think Gibson has become pompously in love with himself but I hate to see a guy tarred by a smear.
I have always read that he had a bad drinking problem back in the Mad Max days and had quite a temper (his comments in his biography) but had long ago quit drinking and cleaned himself up what with his large family, building his own Catholic Church on his property, etc.. This is a little shocking, but he has also not looked like himself for a while. Wonder what the backstory on this really is?
.12 doesn’t seem drunk enough to go on a career-ruining tirade.
heard of FOX NEWS??? http://www.foxnews.com/story/0,2933,206152,00.html
It sounds rather scripted, like someone made it up. On the other hand, Gibson’s father has nutty views. Like father, like son? Who knows? If he really did go on an anti-Semitic tirade, then Mel will be a hero to the hard left. All he has to do now is claim to hate America at least as much as he hates Jews, and the “mainstream” left will adore him.
I’ll say. He’s been looking downright crazy — a lot like the booze and drugged out crazies on skid row. Booze and drugs can change behavior. So can some physical problems like brain tumors. Whatever’s going on with Mel, it really does seem like he’s descending into a bad place in his life.
Christians aren’t supposed to be drunk, and there is more in this article than him simply being antiSemitic.
He was booked at 4am and he’s a family man? Wouldn’t a family man be at home asleep in his bed at that time instead of out drinking and driving?
Mel does have some class, though. If this report is true, I expect he will apologize profusely.
Me, I’m not about to cast aspersions on anyone who babbles incoherently after having had one too many. Just about everyone I know — myself included — has been down that route a time or two.
When you’re intoxicated…your true self is revealed….Shame on Mr. Gibson is this is all true…his career is effectively over.
‘F*****g Jews… The Jews are responsible for all the wars in the world… Are you a Jew?’ Are they sure it wasn`t Hillary they arrested?
Shame on Mr. Gibson is this is all true…his career is effectively over. Nah. Hollyweird will embrace him as one of their own and forgive him for “Passion”. 😉
Oh, dear. How can I ever watch “The Passion” again after knowing this about Mel. Is there something in the water out there that makes people crazy?
I think he fell off the wagon big time with all the stress over the Passion. After that movie, he was acting pretty nuts (well even more nuts)and seemed to age about 20 years which I suspect is from the booze. Also, a big side effect from alcoholism is self destruction which may be the reason for his comments. It all becomes about the booze after a while, and if the career or job gets in the way of that, you destroy it, conciously or subconciously, so you will have more time to drink (take it from one who knows). I mean what is
the WORST possible thing he could have said to screw up his career? Mel has a huge booze problem, and to me that is the reason he said “My life is f****d.” Now it probably really is because they taped everything he said.
After hearing this from several sources today, I can believe he let loose with obscenities, and even anti-semitic statements. His dad, after all, is a Holocaust denier, and he grew up around that stuff.
Ahhhh…I see you have finally come to embrace reality. TMZ (Time-Warner/AOL) obviously has a friend inside the LAPD; aside from that, they would never make up a story as radioactive as this one. At first, the cops tried to sanitize the circumstances of the arrest, but the arresting PO was evidently PO’d enough to write everything down very carefully. In my opinion, it went down as the officer wrote it. And, IMO, this episode has tainted the movie that his fans always denied had any Jew-hatred in it. Harder to defend now, eh?
OK, I’ll revise that so people stop writing to me….TO ME, his career is over….added to the list of people I will not give money to anymore. OK? 🙂
Are you kidding? His behavior and words have eliminated all possibilities of his having any class at all. Me, I’m not about to cast aspersions on anyone who babbles incoherently after having had one too many. You could fill me full of Chivas, tequila, beer, heroin, or chocolate and I would never swear at the police. I would never speak ill of any race or religion.
If this is Mel’s excuse, it’s going to take a LOT of work for anyone to listen to him explain this, should he sober up one day and want to apologize.
