Getting Mel Gibson’s back is no simple task. But, what the fuck, Gary Oldman went for it on the radio. Oldman thinks it’s bullshit that James Mee, the deputy sheriff who arrested Gibson for a DUI, included four pages of Gibson’s anti-Semitic rants in the police report. Without any particular evidence, Oldman plainly suggested that the arresting officer is likely every bit the racist spouting Jew-hater as Mel Gibson.
“The policeman who arrested him has never used the word nigger or that fucking Jew?”
Oldman obviously didn’t recall that Gibson was arrested by the lone Jewish deputy in the sheriff’s department, which was why he went on the I Hate Jews tirade in the first place. It was a natural conversation segue. James Mee is angrily refuting Oldman’s claim, since, you know, there’s not a shred of evidence and it’s fucking stupid. I would expect Oldman to offer an out of touch apology soon. In the future he might want to stay away from defending Gibson and stick to Euro-celebrity sensibilities such as rooting for Palestine, opposing free trade, and lauding obscure movies about incest.
