Rob Schneider's Attempt to Be A Part of Melgate

Rob Schneider's Attempt to Be A Part of Melgate

Rob Schneider wants to be a part of all the craziness so he took out a full page ad in Variety saying he would never work for Mel. Of course this is really just a clever way for him to promote his upcoming projects.

Regardless of whether he was drunk or not, these aren't statements that came out of nowhere. Gibson's father is notoriously known for denying that the Holocaust happened. Rob Schneider might not be the most famous actor, but he's entitled to an opinion and I think what he's doing is right. I've known people who swore off Mel Gibson movies many years ago when it first surfaced he was anti-semitic. Now it's just more plain to see.

He was JOKING! I don't think anyone who has commented can see that he was being ironic. He was basically making fun of the whole situation, more specifically people in the hollywood communtity who have tried to rally people into never seeing any of Mel Gibson's projects. For example, that producer Bernie B. who has written a letter, probably in that same magazine asking everyone to give Mel hell. Where was everyone when Mel had rather rude comments about gays, and now they get mad because he dissed the Jewish faith? How transparent are people in hollywood and the rest who are mad at Mel. I think this is the only time someone is going to get more flack for saying a racist remark, while drunk, than actually driving under the influence! Open up your eyes people on Popsugar and see how funny Rob was. Even near the last sentence " I don't get to call all the shots!" Shots people! He would kill to work with Mel, because the man is almost worth 1 billion. And money always trumps.

I found it interesting that Rob had no problem doing a Disney flick though. I wonder if he drives a Ford?

This dude is such a loser.. geezus. And this whole Mel Gibson ordeal is ridiculous. Yes he made some screwed up comments and offended a whole lot of money in Hollywood, but he said it to a few cops in private while he was WASTED.. it's not like he held a press conference to voice his opinions?! He apologized so I say LET IT GO. Beyond that I don't watch movies because of the producer, director, or actors fuzzy feelings about Jews or anything else.. It shouldn't have anything to do with his career, celebrity or not!!

I think this is so dumb. Who cares about what Rob Schneider thinks? What a waste of money and a bad attempt at publicity for his new, guaranteed dumb, moive, IMHO. I am sick of the Mel story! ~D

Rob Schneider has a bad rap in Hollywood. I read that Tom Hanks and a lot of big time A listers did not want him to have a SAG card , since his materual has been not SAG worthy.

Oh my GOD! This is horrible! Atrocious! How will Mel ever again function normally after reading this truly devastating announcement. They're gonna put him on a suicide watch, I know it! Moron.

Im not agreeing with what Mel said, but I think that Rob Schneider only wrote this letter for his own publicity. If he's going to write public letters it should be an apology for making The Animal.

Sorry about all the quotes, but it bothers me because the whole Jewish race thing was started by the Nazis and I hate to see it perpetuated.
jennifer76 jennifer76 10 years
And, according to, Being Jewish is not a race because Jews do not share one common ancestry or biological distinction. People of many different races have become Jewish people over the years. But this, I think, is what you're thinking of: A Jewish identity is automatically bestowed on the babies of Jewish mothers (according to Orthodox and Conservative Judaism) and of Jewish mothers or fathers (according to Reform Judaism). This Jewish identity stays with them throughout life even if they don't actively practice Judaism.

No, Mal, I looked it up this morning just to be certain.
jennifer76 jennifer76 10 years
And actually, a lot of Sugars have been thinking that Jews were a race, too. And calling Mel racist when he's actually anti-semitic. Just as bad, but goes by a different name. FYI, according to the Anti Defamation League: The opponents of Jews argued that Jewishness was not a religion but a racial category, and that the Jewish "race" was biologically inferior. The belief in a Jewish race would later become Germany's justification for seeking to kill every Jewish person in lands Germany occupied during World War II, whether the person practiced Judaism or not.

isn't it both an ethnicity and a race? you can be a jewish atheist, i think...
jennifer76 jennifer76 10 years
Although, I assume Rob Schneider's being funny with that. But Kate Hudson was saying that the other day too.

I know lillagrys! That's what I said too. I don't get the whole I'm half a Jew thing either. It's not a race!

Good point. I always thought that Jews were a race. Course I was sheltered.

How can you be "50%" of a religion? I understand he means that one of his parents is Jewish, but surely you're either a Jew or you're not? Just a thought...

.."Hey Mel you know what, you said you don't like me so I dont like you either.. so there..and and guess what else? I'm not gonna play with you anymore so just to make a point I wrote you this big letter to tell you that ok. So don't bother calling me or anything. And and guess what else? I'll tell all the kids at school that your mom is fat, so there! You Jew hater! Rob Schneider (50% Jew)

well i guess the lesson celebs will get out of this is use your money to buy your way out because taking responsibility and trying to do something about the problem is obviously not the way to go!
