Yeeeaaah, so about that ABC mini series on the Holocaust that Mel Gibson was working on....now might not be the best idea to go forward with that project. Somehow after the whole "Fucking Jews... The Jews are responsible for all the wars in the world" part of his arrest tirade, Mel should probably back away from that touchy subject for a bit. Of course by "back away" I mean "get his ass kicked off of." Hollywood.com has the story:
Mel Gibson's planned mini-series about the Holocaust may be axed by TV network ABC after his alleged drunken anti-Semitic outburst at a Los Angeles police officer...
Now his nonfiction TV movie Flory, charting the true story of a Dutch Jew named Flory Van Beek and her non-Jewish boyfriend who sheltered her from the Nazis, is in jeopardy.
Rabbi Abraham Cooper is urging The Passion of the Christ producer to drop the "inappropriate" TV program and it is believed some Jewish film executives have pledged never to work with the actor again.
An ABC spokeswoman says only, "It's in development, but not very far in. It's not at the point where you would make those determinations."
Sounds like this is just the beginning of the Mel Gibson backlash in Hollywood. Evening "owning Malibu" won't be enough to save him now.
I think Mel Gibson is an amazing person...and love all his movies.
