Gary Oldman said he was sorry in a statement yesterday. But that’s still not enough for the Anti-Defamation League! The Jewish rights group is blasting the 56-year-old actor for his hurtful words and saying an apology just won’t do it!
National director of the ADL Abraham H. Foxman spoke out today, saying:
"We have just began a conversation with his managing producer. At this point, we are not satisfied with what we received. His apology is insufficient and not satisfactory.”
Gary of course got himself into this mess after calling the Mel Gibson controversy a moment of pure hypocrisy.
He spilled his feelings to Playboy magazine in an interview, saying:
“[Mel] 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.”
Well, that rant is what’s driving L.A. County Sheriff's Deputy James Mee crazy, since he’s the policeman who arrested Gibson for DUI back in 2006!
He called Oldman out for his comments, saying:
"I'm Jewish and why would I say that to discredit my own religious makeup?The N-word is a scary word. I would never even dream of using it. It sickens me that anyone would use that word.”
Of all people to side with, we can’t believe Gary Oldman would back up Mel friggin’ Gibson!
You’ve gotta do more than simply say sorry, dude! Hopefully you can figure out how to fix this and soon!
