Two years after Mel Gibson angered Jewish leaders with The Passion of the Christ, the actor/director has again incensed the Jewish community by reportedly spouting a drunken anti-Semitic diatribe upon his arrest in California.
Gibson, who was booked July 28 for driving under the influence of alcohol, “blurted out a barrage of anti-Semitic remarks about ‘[expletive] Jews,’” according to an apparently leaked copy of the sheriff’s department report.
The Hollywood Web site TMZ.com posted four pages of the report online. Gibson, 50, called one officer a “[expletive] Jew” and said “Jews are responsible for all the wars in the world,” according to the report.
Gibson also allegedly asked an arresting officer, “Are you a Jew?” His blood-alcohol level was .12 percent, a spokesperson for the Los Angeles County sheriff’s department told the Associated Press. The legal limit for drivers in California is .08 percent.
