Mel in a World Gone Mad

TMZ scored big time when they published Mel's anti-Semitic rants over the weekend. Now he is supposedly in rehab and profusely apologizing for his nasty remarks. TMZ has a new statement from Mel asking the Jews for forgiveness. Here's more:

There is no excuse, nor should there be any tolerance, for anyone who thinks or expresses any kind of Anti-Semitic remark. I want to apologize specifically to everyone in the Jewish community for the vitriolic and harmful words that I said to a law enforcement officer the night I was arrested on a DUI charge.

I’m not just asking for forgiveness. I would like to take it one step further, and meet with leaders in the Jewish community, with whom I can have a one on one discussion to discern the appropriate path for healing.

I have begun an ongoing program of recovery and what I am now realizing is that I cannot do it alone. I am in the process of understanding where those vicious words came from during that drunken display, and I am asking the Jewish community, whom I have personally offended, to help me on my journey through recovery. Again, I am reaching out to the Jewish community for its help. I know there will be many in that community who will want nothing to do with me, and that would be understandable. But I pray that that door is not forever closed.

This is not about a film. Nor is it about artistic license. This is about real life and recognizing the consequences hurtful words can have. It’s about existing in harmony in a world that seems to have gone mad.

UPDATED with lots more pictures of drunk Mel partying with the ladies...

okay, I'm gonna risk sounding like a complete nerd......haha, not real hard for me actually.......I use to like mel gibson alot, his acting and stuff like that, but he is getting real strange...making all the Jesus movies and this and that yet going around acting like a total drunk all the time....I know we all got some hypocrisy in us but this dude is carrying it a bit too far*

does anyone else find it odd that he only blew a .12 yet was blazing down a small 2 lane freeway (45mph speed limit) going almost 90!!! i just don't get it. .12 isn't THAT drunk to be saying such idiotic things and driving like a numb nuts. though he does look pretty tanked in these pics. i dunno...his career is pretty much over. hollywood is a solid 50% jewish and people are already calling for him to be blacklisted. he may as well be a communist in the 60's.

haha i wish i lived there too...i watch cnn as well but as soon as you turn the channel its like the war isnt going on. too many ppl dont know the facts but im soooo saddened to see on news channels that tinkerbell was missing or other celebrity gossip like brit spears mama drama. i mean i love this site for celeb gossip but i dont like celeb gossip when i turn on the news...i like the news to report important things on the world and unfortunately we dont go into depth quite enough on world events. instead we focus on the dateline interview with matt lauer and brit's multitude of mistakes or anna nicole wants dead hubby's money. i come here for an escape from what is really going on in the world, but i dont try to educate myself more on the war or gas wars or the launched missiles just to be told five seconds of coverage and then some celeb gossip. sorry i get infuriated by the news coverage not doing its job. i see where you are coming from mom2 but i have also seen friends and my family struggle with what they were taught their entire lives and how much it messes with their heads because their grandparents or uncles or parents that they adored had spoken of such hatred. that would explain how mel is so messed up. its unfortunate and i hope he feels sorry because the words that he spewed so viciously were violent and vulgar. i hope that it is not his personal views and that he changes any ways of thinking that involve such negativity. but much kisses to you mom2 for helping me see where you are coming from...

hey pink :) i can see what you mean - i just can't believe he's not an antisemite so i have trouble seeing it from your eyes- but of course everyone has their own views! :) do you guys really think its getting more press than the war? i don't know???? i watch CNN, fox news every night they have continiuous coverage of the war - i havent seen them mention mel once. but maybe im just watching the wrong channels ;) yeah, i do think that mel should just crawl back in his hole and enough with the coverage - but in a way - i'm glad they are covering it a little to make people see how he is. i mean, obviously he is only one person and unfortunately many people probably share his beliefs - but i just think it's great people see who he really is...loser.... 100% agree the war should be getting more coverage - i guess one thing doesnt have to do with the other though - it just happened this week - it'll be old news by next

I LOVE YOU TOX!!! you are so my girl and i am glad that someone is just as annoyed by this as me...the war should be getting so much more play and talk then this...jenn-very true and thank you for pointing that out love!

Isnt it great when u can debate with out it turning nasty.
pinkangelmonkey pinkangelmonkey 9 years
thanks mom2 for your opinion as you stated clearly what you think. im not trying to force what i feel on any poster here bc i respect what everyone thinks on here. i just appreciate when ppl give me insight into their views as opposed to just name calling and random unorganized thoughts that dont really make any sense. i appreciate your view so again thanks...i hope you can see what i mean and why i think the way i do.
t0xxic t0xxic 9 years
Ok so heres what I dont get now. Its been almost a week its still important news and getting more coverage then some of the news on the actual war going on over there!! Thats wat erks me. I mean ok he said it its done he tried his damage control. Whether its believed or not oh well bOycott his movies or dont. I hate that this takes presecdent(sp) over the real issue KWIM? Can we agree on that lol jk

I disagree. What about people like TJ Leyden and Tim Zaal who are former skinheads that have come around and now speak out against racism? I absolutely think that people can learn.
mom2 mom2 9 years
well, when i say money i mean his image..his career.... i just really dont think he "truly" is sorry - i think he's "truly" sorry he got caught. i dont care how drunk he was - i think he is a true anti- semite and he just let his feelings out. and you know what - with everything that is going on in the world, for him to act in this way is even more disturbing. he knows that is famous and things he says are going to get out to the media. i think he's just a jerk. if he could say those things in the first place, he's not truly sorry - no way.
pinkangelmonkey pinkangelmonkey 9 years
but he has enough money that he doesnt need to do this for money or work, i truly feel that he feels sorry. i would love to hear your point of view because im open to discussion on this...i dont want anyone to think im one sided and i dont want anyone to think i agree at all with what he said...
mom2 mom2 9 years
and pink, i do think he's only apologizing bc he's sad he got caught. why??? for $$$ reasons
mom2 mom2 9 years
well said fiona. how anyone can say they dont think he is anti semitic is beyond me

you know alcoholism is a disease right? it is hard to overcome and some say it is never something you are completely over...that is why so many ppl have relapses. i believe that why would he care so much on what ppl thought of him if he didnt honestly truly feel bad. there will still be ppl that will back him or hire him because he is mel gibson...its sad that he said such hateful words and all of us are entitled to our own opinions, but if he truly goes out of his way i will believe he is showing remorse. come on now, he isnt apologizing because he is only sad he got caught. he has been raised with such ideas that his father drilled into his head. im sure it wasnt only his father it was others too...but alot of his choices were made for him and im sure he has some hateful feelings but do you really believe he is soooo hateful he is only apologizing for his critics? no i have had friends in the past whose families were extremely hateful and they had been caught spewing racist comments, some of them had extremely important jobs where this actually had an effect and not a single one apologized for what they said when they were caught. truly racist and bigoted ppl dont care whose feelings they hurt so i dont believe he is just trying to get in ppl's good graces all over again!

there was a piece in the press over here at the weekend saying the mel is moving house because Britney has moved near and he is sick of the social services that keep calling on her..

I think this was the turning point of Mel to realize he needed help. I don't think he is really anti-semetic. I think it was upbringing and being smashed. Still no excuse. He will never have the same rep, that will never be repaired. I always knew he was a drunk though. Like 20 years ago the National Inquirer had pictures of him absolutley smashed at a party, making out with three differnt girls (caught cheating on wife) and drinking alcohol out of a girls shoe. Pretty bad when the National Enquirer actually nails you. They are only right like 3% of the time. Oouch.

the hatred in his heart is why he is so messed up. It is hard to find someone sincere that is about to lose thier crediblity, he is desperate, HOWEVER-if he really puts forth the efforts to understand the Jewish community and be pro active whwn it comes to trying to ease some of the tension that he , himself even helped create with his Passions movie, I am willing to forgive him.
