ADL to Gary Oldman: 'He should know better,' than to make anti-Semitic remarks
The Anti-Defamation League (ADL) responded in a press release Wednesday to comments by actor Gary Oldman defending anti-Semitic remarks made by Mel Gibson in 2006.
"Mel Gibson is in a town that's run by Jews and he said the wrong thing because he's actually bitten the hand that I guess has fed him," said Oldman in an interview with Playboy.
"He (Oldman) should know better than to repeat and give credence to tired anti-Semitic tropes," said the ADL. "Mel Gibson's ostracization in Hollywood was not a matter of being 'politically incorrect,' as Mr. Oldman suggest, but of paying the consequences for outing himself as a bigot and a hater."
"It is disturbing that Mr. Oldman appears to have bout into Mr. Gibson's warped and prejudiced world view." (Ynetnews)
