Mel Gibson You Hate Jews

Mel Gibson You Hate Jews, MEL Gibson’s anti-Semitic tirade has come roaring back to life after his planned film about a Jewish uprising by Judah Maccabee was shelved, triggering a nasty war of words between the film-maker and his screenwriter.
Joe Eszterhas, who made his name with scripts for Basic Instinct and Showgirls, claims Gibson never wanted to make the film in the first place because: “You hate Jews.”
In a nine-page letter to Gibson, which was published by The Wrap, Eszterhas accused the film-maker of denying the Holocaust as “‘mostly a lot of horses**t” and continually called Jewish people “Hebes and oven-dodgers and Jewboys”.
He even touches on Gibson’s bust-up with his ex-girlfriend, Oksana Gregorieva, saying Gibson had explicitly threatened to kill her.
The film, which was to tell the story of tell the story of Judaism’s most famous figures and was promoted by Gibson as the Jewish Braveheart, was ditched by Warner Bros after they read a first draft of the script.
In a statement, Warners said the script for The Maccabees lacked “feeling” and a “sense of triumph”.
Smarting from the rejection, Eszterhas laid the blame for the project’s collapse at Gibson’s feet.
“I’ve come to the conclusion that the reason you won’t make ‘The Maccabees’ is the ugliest possible one. You hate Jews,” he said.
He accused Gibson of taking on the project “to deflect continuing charges of anti-Semitism which have dogged you, charges which have crippled your career”, and to “convert the Jews to Christianity”.
He said Gibson was “was wild, crazed, and explosive”.
“You continually called Jews ‘Hebes’ and ‘oven-dodgers’ and ‘Jewboys.’ It seemed that most times when we discussed someone, you asked ‘He’s a Hebe, isn’t he?’ You said most ‘gatekeepers’ of American companies were ‘Hebes’ who ‘controlled their bosses.’
