Hangover 2 star Zach Galifianakis Pulls A Mel!

| Filed under: Film FlickersOops!AwardzMel GibsonEvents

zach galifianakis pulls a mel against hangover 2 director

We understand he was joking around when he did this, but given his feelings toward Mel, this MAY not have been the best joke choice ever.

During the 14th Annual Hollywood Awards Gala yesterday, Zach Galifianakis called Hangover 2 director Todd Phillips "the worst Jew in Hollywood." He then said "That's an inside joke."

The joke is obviously referring to the drama surrounding Mel Gibson, who is notoriously known for his comment "Jews are responsible for all the wars in the world," and who was fired from The Hangover 2 because the cast and crew didn't want him there.

What do U think of Galifianakis' joke? Completely innocent? Or does it hit too close to home because of Mel controversy?

    I think Zach would be wise to shut up about this whole mess

  3. 3

    I'm a MOT and I have no problem with this at all

  4. 4

    If I was Jewish, I'd laugh?

  5. 5

    I love it, well deserved!

  6. 6

    he's just joking around, and it's pretty funny. people are going to get so worked up over this when its clearly something him and the director have a joke about. calm down people

    HIGHLARIOUS… KEEP IT UP Galifianakis… Who gives a shit about "hitting to

    close to home" I say hit the home, slam into the home. Carma is a bitch and

    he is getting what he deserves. Don't forgive and forget that easily PEREz!

  9. 9

    I think he probably should shut up except when he's with his friends privately…hypocrite.

  10. 10

    Completely innocent and devoid of hate or malace. He and Phillips are great friends. Todd Phillips was presenting him the award and refered to him as his muse.

    Mel Gibson is a hateful bigot. People don't want to work with him right now. Boo fucking hoo!

    Can we all just move on?

    He's an idiot that needs to shut up. What else has he been in besides the hang over? He sure didn't have a problem with a convicted rapist and drug addict being in the last movie. Oh, and didn't Mike Tyson bite part of the ear off of Holyfield? So, this Zach person also doesn't have a problem with a person that permanently physically maime someone. I will not be seeing this next movie just because he is an idiot. Mel Gibson would have made this movie a bigger hit than the last one.

  13. 13

    Considering the scoop he was the biggest objector to Mel being in the movie; as a half jew, I'm NOT offended at all.

    The difference…Zach is a comedian…Mel is an anti-Semite!

  14. 14

    It is not only about the anti Jewish sentiments of Mel Gibson or what a Jewish director thinks of that, it is about a man who hates and abuses women and then tries to frame a poor girl, the mother of his child, with fake extortion. He is a sicko and not just a Jewish sicko but a very sick man at all levels.

  15. 15

    ok, why is ok for people belonging to a minority group to use offensive language or make racist comments? If a comment is deemed offensive, then surely its offensive no matter who sais it? I think the use of the "N" word in songs and raps is disgusting. Can you imagaine if a non jewish person had made this comment? Unlike you - I don't understand he was joking. Its horrible.

  16. 16

    Re: Shewolf – So its ok to make a racist or offensive comment if your a commedian? Wake up America - racism is offensive no matter who its coming from or who its pointed at!

  17. 17

    I think Zach is an ass. Why is it ok to have a convicted rapist in their first movie and not Mel. Has Mel been formally convicted of anything? Give Mel a break, that Oksana chick played him and used him and then sold him out when he had a burn out over it. Just wrong. He should be in the movie. I know I will not go see Hangover 2 because of Zach and the way they treated Mel.

  18. 18

    The thing about 'inside jokes' is, a lot of people don't get it. So, keep it on the inside buddy.

  19. 19

    Re: jackalexandria – then you don't get out much and live in the real world huh? because comedians poke fun at races and religions all the time.. i mean ALL the time.. and if you can't laugh it off well then your going to be angry a lot..

  20. 20

    and get over the whole tyson thing shit.. the thing is the whole thing with Mel is that it's going on right NOW.. tysons was forever ago not many people think about it as much as their thinking about all the things Mel has done and still doing.. that's why it might hurt the movie.. stop whining..

    Why are so many Americans so concerned with political correctness?? There's racism, reverse-racism, you name it and the Yanks will get worked up about it!! Hey I've even seen America get worked up at so called racism in other countries, like when you dragged Australia through the mud not too long ago over a KFC advertisement. Just a heads up a black man being offered fried chicken is only a racist thing in America not Australia but it didn't stop you!! This may be hard for some of you to believe but in Australia that situation has no racial connotations whatsoever, in Australia it's simply one human giving another human chicken, so basically you took a situation that meant nothing to anybody in Australia (both black and white) and made it something cause you expect us to live by your standards (or lack thereof)!! Don't try bringing your standards to the rest of the world cause we're doing fine on our own!! I've had my daily rant, bye for now!!

    Mel should never been replaced in the first place.

    A joke is a joke, and it's never over the line… no one should care…

  23. 23

    This quote was probably taken way out of context.

  24. 24

    hmmm… Zach you should just leave this alone.

  25. 25

    Re: jennycakes – thanks for your advice but I think you missed the point. One day hopefully you'll understand what I mean when I say racism is not ok, from anyone.

  26. 26

    It makes him a big ole' hypocrite puss!

  27. 27

    obnoxious asshole. one hit wonder

  28. 28

    the joke is in reference to his stand up act, not Mel. In his act he calls his agents and his manager his "jews". I guess because many of them are jewish?? It really has nothing to do with Mel Gibson. Watch some of his stuff, he even reference's it on some of his between two ferns skits…

  29. 29

    Not a great joke…

  30. 30

    Completely Innocent!!!
    I have great comical respect for the cast and crew of The Hangover, but now I see they are due for some business respect as well - they knew the right thing to do, and they did it without giving a $%#@ about what other people have to say - Bravo to them for getting rid of the asshole, his part (which I could only assume would have been a one liner) would've undoubtedly ruined the whole movie.

  31. 31

    shouldda kept Mel and not caved.

  32. 32

    Re: evie1205 – Shut up.

  33. 33

    Zach is a damned hypocrite who should get a vasectomy so he doesn't pollute the gene pool with his spawn.

  34. 34

    Nothing to worry about. Your panties - untwist them.

  35. 35

    Oh SHUT UP, Zach Whogivesashitwhatyouthink-kis!!!

    You're the worst part of "Bored To Death". You're lucky to be working at all, let alone in movies.

    Hypocritical jerkoff!!

  36. 36

    Mario, You're an idiot!

  37. 37

    He means no harm. People should drop it and move on to more important things. He is one funny man

  38. Gigi7 says – reply to this


    There was something over Zach's picture that said "Get the Look". LOL
    Most people are trying to avoid that look.

  39. 39

    He has the right to free speech and if the media wants to read between the lines and try to stir up more controversy then there is nothing he can do about it. I'm sure there are plenty of Mel Gibson jokes floating around Hollywood right now, most just don't have the balls to say them in public.

  40. @v@ says – reply to this


    If Mel can say what he said, then this is a bedtime story comparatively, just saying.

  41. 41

    This guy is letting his fame get to his head a little much… One day soon Mel is gonna ram his little poufy haired head right up his own ass!!! I swear he goes on as if he were the person being abused or like anyone cared about his oppinion on Mel… Surprised he hasn't commented on any other people out there that have issues he has no knowledge about in thier family lives… Everytime he talks now I am getting less and less likely to want to watch this guy again…

  42. 42

    Since when did newbies get to decide when real actors can be involved in a film? I'm sick to death over this!!!! I REALLY wanted to see Hangover 2, but now, not a chance. What Mel said was disgusting to be sure, but doesn't he deserve the same 2nd chance everyone else gets?

    Why do the Jews always have to band together on everything? Can't anyone have their own opinion without it always coming back Judaism all the time? I'm tired of it. Give it a rest! I dont care about your religion. SHUT UP because you sound stupid!
