    Jodie Foster is in good company: according to Lao Tzu (really a pseudonym for a bunch of people who edited the text over many years), “If a man is bad, do not abandon him.”

    Why would anyone want to have you in a movie and kill their box office? I know I wouldn’t pay to see you anymore. Who wants to support someone that’s hated on gays, Jews and blacks? Loved you in The Year of Living Dangerously, What Women Want & Signs, but this is where we part ways.

    GetEQUAL is going to protest Jodie Foster and then the rest of Hollywood. The rumor is we have “friends” in Hollywood” and that is just unacceptable. DONATE to getqual tonight we are about to overcome the oppressors. Radical anger works.

    It’s interesting that a mere quote from a classic of ancient Chinese literature would get a negative rating, which says a lot about QUEERTY’s rating system.

    The cast and crew should be really proud of themselves as they have shown integrity and respect for their own selves and for the rest of the world by refusing to work with this guy. It just comes to show you that if people stick together, bigotry can be easily defeated.

    @Mixner Knows:

    What is with you trolling assholes and your relentless hardon for GetEQUAL?

    It’s not funny, and it’s not outrageous. It’s just boring. Let it go, dipshit.

    @the crustybastard: I think he’s making fun of GetEQUAL supporters.

    @B: I think it says a lot about Queerty’s readers, but agreed.

    Its actually a good bit ‘o karma that Gibson gets jetted from a film called “The Hangover”…….. :p

    It’s true, I wouldn’t go see a Mel Gibson film (or Tom Cruise, etc) but…

    it is interesting that they all appeared in the first version w/ convicted rapist, Mike Tyson.

    So, did the producers think they would earn free publicity with “Mel’s Comeback Appearance”? Otherwise, why wouldn’t they have been the ones to show Mel the door?

    It would obviously be the sentiment behind the quote that is getting the negative reviews. If an ancient quote said “Beat all children with sticks” just because it is from an old text doesn’t protect it from people saying “Thats a terrible thing to say.”

    As for the movie. That was smart, I wouldn’t go see a film that had him in it.

    Yeah, she’ll probably wait till her movie with him bombs, then abandon him.

  • alan brickman

  • alan brickman

    Interesting that you would not use the actual quote, which was from a classic of Chinese literature, the Tao te Ching, that does not condone beating anyone (the example you made up).

    The more likely explanation for a negative reaction on the part of some is that they are jerks: the sentence I quoted in No 1 was, “If a man is bad, do not abandon him.” If (hypothetically) a friend of yours develops a drinking problem and is obnoxious when drunk, should you throw him out the door (i.e., abandon him) or try to get him some help?
