Gary Oldman Responds To Accusations Of Anti-Semitism For Remarks He Made In His Playboy Interview! Prepare To Be Shocked!

gary oldman anti semitic remark respond playboy

These are not the comments that Gotham deserves, Gary Oldman!

One of our favorite character actors ever, Gary recently took on the role of "Guy with foot inside mouth," in his recent interview with Playboy magazine, which contains remarks of his that many understandably believe to be anti-Semitic!

Here's Gary's controversial statement about Mel Gibson that goes from bad to worse, and will definitely shock you:

"I don't know about Mel. He got drunk and said a few things, but we've all said those things. We're all f*cking hypocrites. That's what I think about it. The policeman who arrested him has never used the word n*gger or that f*cking Jew? I'm being brutally honest here. It's the hypocrisy of it that drives me crazy. Or maybe I should strike that and say 'the N word" and "the F word,' though there are two F words now…Alec calling someone an F-A-G in the street while he's pissed off coming out of his building because they won't leave him alone. I don't blame him. So they persecute. 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—and doesn't need to feed him anymore because he's got enough dough. He's like an outcast, a leper, you know? But some Jewish guy in his office somewhere hasn't turned and said, 'That fu*king kraut' or 'F*ck those Germans,' whatever it is? We all hide and try to be so politically correct. That's what gets me. It's just the sheer hypocrisy of everyone, that we all stand on this thing going, 'Isn't that shocking?' [smiles wryly] All right. Shall I stop talking now?"

No, you should have stopped talking in your first sentence, Gary!

Appropriating Mel's anti-Semitic slurs by saying that everyone possesses some form of hypocritical racism, anti-Semitism, or xenophobia is just not true!

Yeah, the cop who arrested Mel? He says he has never called anyone the N-word or a "f*cking Jew."

Meanwhile, after the backlash Gary has received, we're not surprised he was quick to give his own apology to the Anti-Defamation League:

Dear Gentlemen of the ADL:

I am deeply remorseful that comments I recently made in the Playboy Interview were offensive to many Jewish people. Upon reading my comments in print—I see how insensitive they may be, and how they may indeed contribute to the furtherance of a false stereotype. Anything that contributes to this stereotype is unacceptable, including my own words on the matter. If, during the interview, I had been asked to elaborate on this point I would have pointed out that I had just finished reading Neal Gabler’s superb book about the Jews and Hollywood, An Empire of Their Own: How the Jews invented Hollywood. The fact is that our business, and my own career specifically, owes an enormous debt to that contribution.

I hope you will know that this apology is heartfelt, genuine, and that I have an enormous personal affinity for the Jewish people in general, and those specifically in my life. The Jewish People, persecuted thorough the ages, are the first to hear God’s voice, and surely are the chosen people.

I would like to sign off with 'Shalom Aleichem'—but under the circumstances, perhaps today I lose the right to use that phrase, so I will wish you all peace–Gary Oldman.

While a pretty decent apology, the excerpts of his Playboy interview attempt to excuse some pretty terrible remarks that no one really should ever by trying to excuse in the first place. We hope he learns from this offensive faux pas.

    His words may sound harsh but he speaks the truth. Hollywood is not real life - in real life people say things like that all the time - the only difference is that everyday people dont have their words recorded and their picture taken all the time. I can guarantee you if you had hidden camera's on 1000 people and listened to their conversation, almost all of those people would say something offensive in one way or another. Not saying its right but its the truth!

    Well said RMS. unfortunately, we live in a media-frenzied society that capitalizes on any and every opportunity to debilitize a celebrity or public figures reputation. Having said that, I feel like Gibson, Baldwin and this fellow have been in the industry long enough to know that although it is bullshit, this is the world we live in and their lives will undoubtedly be more scrutinized then the regular average joe. Hopefully his remarks won't suffer the same extreme alienation and outcasting as Gibsons.

    I agree with RMS. Is it nice? No. But is it true? Yes.

    Of course the homo writer would conveniently not even read the entire Playboy article to arrive at context. Gary Oldman's comments were not at all controversial. However, the very existence of this Perez Hilton article is controversial. Oldman's comments were 100% on the money, while this article denies reality and attempts to stir a pot that doesn't need stirring. If you can't even write responsibly, don't write at all. Look at your headline. And apologize to Oldman while you are at it … he absolutely deserves it after this hit piece.

    In my experience, most people do not talk this way. Thankfully. I couldn't take it. I'm sure that lots of people do, but not most. And I am sooo glad that my parents did not teach me, by example, to use this sort of language. One day, we'll evolve beyond calling each other offensive names. I hope to live to see it.

    As for the talented Mr. Oldman, I am no longer a fan.

    Perez, it is hard to take you seriously since your rise to fame was based on bullying, and particularly oppressive towards women. Rumour being referred to as a Potato Head or terrible references to Gwenyth's outfit related to her smelly body parts all come to mind. Just saying!

    Gary's right, stop trying to be so perfect Perez, no body is. And it doesn't necessarily make you a bad person either! If youre saying it all the time and being a jackass then thats not ok

    Gary let it out of the bag in a very honest way. What the super jews in hollywood try to do in a lawyer like way is combat you in your honesty regardless of how you spill it. They won't accept anything less. His comments are not about being brave, defiant, or angry or a hero….
    Gary put it out there cut and dry and is fed up with the political correctness in this country and the world over. Gary is representative of what everyone thinks, with the exception of those in industry who suck the taint of the body that feeds them financially which includes Perez Hilton by the way. Perez you are a blogger yes, but if you didn’t have Hollywood BS content to write about you would be working at Ralph’s or Von’s.

    Freedom is flapping your lips, he didnt say anything wrong, people who are persecuting him say same stuff at home… Perez will be in hot water one day for what he really says.. just wait and see.

    Re: daphneduke – Good and bad words are all part of speech and language, like a saw you cant cut tings without the high and low teeth, the space that separates them… he is not a bad person, he was simply stating how people are… and I'm sure he coudlnt care less if you're a fan or not, he has his own life to live.

    Too bad you fall into the same game that Gary is speaking of. Taking some sentences out of the complete interview to get a fire storm started. Pick and choose instead of posting about his point, Hippocrates in Hollywood. Head to the top of list!

  15. Paul says – reply to this


    15

    Gary was right on the money. He only faulted himself in actually using the words that were said by others; which is what you, Perez, and the ADL latched on to. He is a very smart, honest to a fault, human being who happens to be an actor. He's given very few interviews over the years and probably that is the reason. He speaks his mind and the truth and gets stomped on it by low lifes like you. The ADL? It has outlived it's usefulness, 99.9% of the old Nazi's are dead.

    Anyone who has access to Xbox Live has either been called or has called someone those words. I'm sorry, when did celebrities stop being real people? Did that happen when the media and we put them on a pedestal because they were good at something? It's all fun and games until one of the "high and mighty" acts human. Forgive, forget and move the fuck on.

    Re: Paul – It is important to note that ADL was created by Jacob Schiff working under Kuhn Loeb in 1913. The Schiff family are Class A Shareholding owners of the Federal Reserve bank, one of 8-10 families at the time and remain intact to this day.

    The false story about the creation of the ADL is that it happened because of a lynching of a Jew outside of B’nai B’rith temple in Los Angeles 1913.

    The TRUE story is that the ADL was created in 1913 by the Schiff Family by proxy of the Federal Reserve Bank of NY, which also created the Federal Income Tax act of 1913.

    In my estimation this organization was created to protect the identities of the Askenazi German Banking families that own the private Federal Reserve Bank of NY with at the time, JP Morgan Chase, John D. Rockefeller and Andrew Carnegie who persuaded Woodrow Wilson to allow the creation of this bank in the first place, which Wilson later regretted.

    Mr. Abe Foxman has some explaining to do.

    don't apologize for speaking your mind, haters gonna hate you no matter what, you have the right of free speech ,so use it ….and people need to stop accusing people of the worst just because they speak freely and might even have a real point there !!!!!! once again,do not apologize to those hypocrites ,who with the same breath they scream foulplay ,producing and directing hateful movies against other religions !!!!!!!

    You just scored a whole page from Mr. Oldman. If everyone were completely politically correct, what would you write about? You might have to put the elevator music on and stare out the window.

    How Jews became an "F" word???
    Why do you need to tag when it come to something that probably annoys/disturbs you??
    + the fact that people agree is horrible, it means the damage is done, the seed of racism is being watered

    Who in the right mind that's the opinion of this @ss Clown Perez seriously, this excuse of a male is a joke. This crap represents "The LGBT" more like the ring leader of a Circus.

  27. fid says – reply to this


    27

    I don't see why he should need to apologize. He has the right to speak his mind and he didn't say anything rude. He was speaking about the fact that people get into these frenzies of condemnation of others for things they've done/said that may have been coerced or goaded. Especially since those who are condemning usually say/do the same things themselves from time to time. None of us are without fault, yet in this day of online pitchforks, a person can be ruined just by rumours alone, no proof needed.

  28. fid says – reply to this


    28

    Re: daphneduke – Perhaps you should educate yourself and read the whole article/interview on a more respected website. Rather than relying solely on this POS website, that uses misinformation to get more hits. You know, before you condemn someone you apparently liked before.

    Re: Coolio

    I agree with everything daphneduke has said here. I have never used those words, nor would I, because they are not in my vocabulary. swear words, fine. But words like that? No. I think Mr. Oldman had to eat some crow because of the backlash, but his true self came out in the first comments. I too am no longer a fan.

    How interesting that that heartfelt apology didn't include the African American community. Only the Jewish community which controls his ability to work. What an asshole. And I loved him for so long.

    Re: Elizabeth Garcia – Elizabeth you are welcome to sit on a dradle and spinnnnnnnnnnnnnnn. I think he was addressing abe fox man and the ADL. When i see ADL i don't think of all people and races being represented. Its for Jews and their control of the DNC.

    37

    Re: RMS – "In real life people say things like that all the time." Um, that's kind of the point. They shouldn't say things like that in real life. People who decry "PC" are really saying they want social approval for their classless hate. No thanks.

  38. PC ILLIN says – reply to this


    38

    Re: Sharkspeare – Not exactly. That could also mean that those in favor of PC and who enforce it are using those words behind closed doors. DON STERLING the good democrat the latest case in point.

  39. Miriam says – reply to this


    39

    I AM Jewish & I find this whole mess to be totally absurd & juvenile! Gary was simply trying to make a point re: the ridiculousness of PC, & how it can be applied to whatever a person wants to apply it to. Instead of freaking out on the language he chose to use to illustrate his point, just STOP & look at the actual point of his diatribe. People have gotten too g-ddamn oversensitive about bullshit that really doesn't matter in the long run! Some of you may be too young to remember, "sticks & stones……names will never hurt me"? Well it's as true now as it was then. Furthermore, his apology was perfectly adequate &, in all honesty, unnecessary. It says a lot about him that he even went to the trouble to issue an apology! IF it can somehow be proven that he is, in fact, anti-semitic, I'll simply boycott his films, as I do those of Mel Gibson, who actually IS a PROVEN anti-semite, along with the father that raised him to be one! But above all of this is our Constitutional right to FREEDOM OF SPEECH. I don't have to like what anyone says, but I'll damn sure defend their RIGHT to say it! G-D BLESS AMERICA!!

  40. @v@ says – reply to this

    Re: Sharkspeare – I disagree. Instead of 'wanting social approval for their classless hate' I think people want inherent understanding, tolerance and forgiveness for humanity when it makes mistakes and acknowledges the mistake. No human is ever going to get it all right, and even the ADL knows that the Lord's Prayer states 'And forgive us our trespasses, As we forgive them that trespass against us.' I hear the ADL does not forgive. Yet talent agents lower the moral and ethical bar at their behest for more depraved cash almost daily; but I don't even judge them; I just make sure not to support those acts.

    Ashkenazi jews currently have the highest IQ of any social group on earth. I have seen studies that have placed their IQ's above 110. NO COUNTRY on earth is above 110. Their violent crime rate is one of the lowest in the usa. While the media makes a big deal about how women are outperforming men in university.. 50%+ of jewish women have some degree, thus, making mincemeat of the women who are making mincemeat of men. And jewish women can brag "my male children are PAWNING ALL your male and female children in academics. Yours cant even compete with women. Women I make mincemeat of myself.". Oh. sorry. I forgot. We arent allowed to say GOOD things about jews either. I just saw it in the PC manual. I apologize. Jews dont run things. Educated people do. Jews just happen to be highly educated as a group (because of that IQ)

  43. caravaggio truth out says – reply to this


    43

    Re: you am me we see tee – Askenazi Jewish families also own all the central banks out of Europe, the west, and the United States Federal Reserve Bank, protected by the Royal Houses of Europe and Venetian Black Nobility of Rome (The Roman families that own the VATICAN and Jesuit Order). Fuck you and your IQ stats. Let the truth be told! Gary I love you. Miriam, are you single?

  44. @v@ says – reply to this


    44

    Re: @v@ – *At the talent agent's urging, not the ADL's.
    Re: you am me we see tee – Ashkenazim constitute around 36% of Israel's population, (world map of national I.Q. scores by country) but the country doesn't crack the I.Q top ten but lands at 13th, so national I.Q. looks to be more ethnically based rather than doctrine based.

  45. i am me we see er..tee says – reply to this


    45

    Re: caravaggio truth out – Those arent MYYYY IQ stats. Those are the ashkenazi JEW's IQ stats. My IQ is 30 points higher than the average jew (assuming i ignore my lowest IQ scores and only acknowledge my higher ones).. And whats wrong with owning things? If what you said is true …"whew". My money is in good hands. Ironically, his name is "oldman" and he's an old man. Older men are just as hated by society as jews can be. "dirty jew".. "dirty old man". Yup thats a parallel if there ever was one. You "love him" but if he dated a 24 year old…. "you dirty old man!". Love is fickle and two faced. Older men need to wake up and see they are in the same hated boat as jews and gays. Ally up.

    Re: @v@Re: @v@ – whaaaat? When did you convert to "IQ ism?". Why would you bother to research something you consider to be "old fashioned"? anyhooooo.
    I have a theory why the jewish IQ is so high (jewish girls chase nerds not jocks,, culturally. Historically especially). It has nothing to do with religion. Jewish females spent the last 100's of years climbing over hunks to get at doctors. I'd elaborate but I've had enough "STFU" for one day.

  47. Miriam says – reply to this


    47

    Re: caravaggio truth out – I'd have to see proof of what you say about the Ashkenazim before I'd just accept it as absolute truth. Personally, I hope you ARE right! I love Gary, too. And yes, I am. ;-)

  48. Miriam says – reply to this


    48

    Re: i me weeee pee tee see – A major contributing factor to high IQ's among Jewish people is the fact that parents instill in their kids the importance of education & love of learning. Consider the fact that most Jewish parents send the kids to religious school (where they learn a 2nd language & to be proud of their heritage) in addition to regular school. They don't get Sundays off - they're in religious school! And yes, when they grow up, they tend to go for mates with the same level of education. It's not just the IQ you're born with; it's what you DO with it. BTW - mine is 135, so not too bad!

  49. @v@ says – reply to this


    49

    Re: i me weeee pee tee see – I didn't convert to IQism nor am opposed to its one measure. I like actual stats, research, and fact checking over blanket statements like the one you've made proclaiming higher IQ's when the national stats don't appear to bear that out. If it were true, climbing over hunks to get to doctors would be one way, lol; funny visual.

    Re: Miriam – It HAS been proven. The list was seen in the 1930s and 1940s in the Library of Congress. The 1st guy who saw the list, Ezra Pound, talked about it publicly briefly and he was thrown in a prison for years on bullshit crimes. Of course the likes of the ADL and other 'Askenazi groups' deny this and have denied it for years. Particularly the communists in government in the 1940s that were brilliantly pointed out by the John Birch Society in the 1950s. Then of course the Birchers were called racists, etc etc and denounced as a white christian wack job group. You know the drill. Miriam you single?
