Mel Gibson, the bug-eyed star of ‘Mad Max’ and ‘Signs’, has landed himself in a bit of trouble with the law. He was caught speeding under the influence last Friday at 87mph in a 45mph zone. It has since emerged that the Lethal Weapon also spluttered racial obscenities to his arresting officer, James Mee. “Are you a Jew?”
Gibson asked stumbling out of the car. “The Jews are responsible for all the wars in the world”
he allegedly ranted.
The revelation came as little shock to Abraham Foxman, national director of the Anti-Defamation league, who once described Gibson’s ‘The Passion of the Christ’ as a “reservoir of hatred”
. He told press: “it is unfortunate that it took an excess of booze and an encounter with a traffic cop to reveal what was really in his heart and mind”.
Mel, who denies he’s Australian despite overwhelming evidence, has since apologised for his outburst saying: “I am deeply ashamed of everything I said”.
I just can’t wait for his next film. Maybe he could team up with the Hoff and make ‘Mad Max 4: Knight Rider edition’. The dynamic duo could don leather jackets and screech round America on a massive booze run… Kit screaming racist abuse and firing rockets at any infidels they chance upon.
