If Joe Eszterhas couldn't write the script for The Maccabees, maybe he didn't want anyone else to have it either!
Because that disturbing nine-page letter he wrote about Mel Gibson was definitely a catalyst for Jewish groups to protest its development!
In a statement by El Lay's Simon Wiesenthal Center, the human rights organization calls for Warner Bros to end development immediately:

WHAT… a shizstorm!!
We are still BAFFLED by everything we've learned today regarding Mel Gibson. Not surprised. Just IN SHOCK at how disturbing some of the allegations are!!
If you're caught up, then you already know all about Joe Eszterhas accusing Mel of everything from murder plans to shaming the Holocaust!
And before anyone can call BS on his claims, he's come forward to reveal his son caught most of the rants on his iPhone!!!
No word yet on when he plans on releasing the goods… but he does comment on that Maccabees script Warner Bros rejected:
Tags: antisemitic, holocaust, joe eszterhas, john lennon, maccabees, mel gibson, murder, oksana, rants, warner bros
Yep!! There's more!!
Now that we've learned Mel Gibson (allegedly) celebrates the death of John Lennon and (allegedly) fantasizes about offing his ex, more info reveals DETAILED anti-Semitic claims!
You see, Joe Eszterhas was working on a script for Mels' The Maccabees. And when that was rejected, we guess he figured no use in keeping secrets anymore (that, or he devised an insane revenge plot)! So he wrote a massive letter exposing even more of Mel's alleged hate.
He comes to the conclusion that Mel only wanted The Maccabees made to cover up his past… while spreading even more anti-Semitic hate.
To back this up, he writes:

Ricky Gervais is foreshadowing a bit to his next Golden Globes gig.
After the news broke that he would be hosting the Golden Globes again (news that most of Hollywood did NOT like), he tweeted about asking Oscar-host Billy Crystal to not use any of his holocaust or pedophile material.
Piers Morgan also got in on the fun, asking if he could have the honor of having his first post-GG interview, to which Ricky obliged.

Remember that guy who said he understood Adolf Hitler and sympathized with him? Lars Von Trier?
If not, let's recap. During the Cannes Film Festival last May, director Lars Von Trier taught everyone a huge lesson in having a social filter.
You can watch what happened right here if you'd like to refresh your memory. If only for the priceless look on Kirsten Dunst's face…
