galliano3924“It’s the worst thing I have said in my life, but I didn’t mean it. . . I have been trying to find out why that anger was directed at this race. I now realize I was so fucking angry and so discontent with myself that I just said the most spiteful thing I could.”

    He was employed as a very visible face of a public company and told women he was arguing with in a restaurant that they looked like Jews and Hitler should have killed them and laughed while he was doing it.

    Now, he was mad at himself and he knows Elton and Anna Wintour. Well, I’m sold.

    BTW, if I remember correctly, the women were Italian Catholics.

    If jewish people didn’t have the financial and social clout to ruin his career, he wouldn’t be at all apologetic. Next.

    Drunk, high people say stupid things. It is a bit of a window into subconscious though. It would not have been a big deal except for who he was. Unfortunately, fame does raise the level of scrutiny. It is the major reason I would wish fame on only my enemies.

    @hamoboy:

    It wasn’t financial or social clout that ruined him. It was publicity. Remember, Mel Gibson continued to be a powerful Hollywood guy after his attack on Jews, still got major funding for Apocolypto, it was when he went after his girlfriend and black people on those messages that really took him down.

    @Cam: I have no idea what you are thinking. Mel Gibson’s career tanked after his drunken rants. He went from hot, hot, hot to a nobody. He’s done nothing since. He’s acted in nothing successful. Apocolyto was not a mainstream success.

    That said, Mel Gibson is a repeat offender with his insulting drunk rants. He believes the stuff he rants about. Which does make a difference.

    @Polaro:

    No, after his FIRST rant, against the police where it was reported he said all the anti-Jewish stuff he continued to function in Hollywood, he made Apocolypto etc…

    It was the last rant, a few years later that his girlfriend taped that did him in.
