Where's your messiah now? The man who brought you "The Passion of the Christ" was arrested for drunk driving Friday night. In a report verified by the Los Angeles Times Mel Gibson was pulled over for driving erradically, threatened the arresting officer, and burst into an anti-Semetic tyrade while sitting in the back of the squad car.
"F...ing Jews.." he shouted. "They're the cause of all the wars in the world." Um, you're not going to open with that are you, Mel?
Jewish groups are demanding an apology. Hollywood is split over how this will effect his career.
"It's a nuclear disaster for him," said publicist Michael Levine, who has represented Michael Jackson and Charlton Heston, among others. "I don't see how he can restore himself."
Some see it a different way. "Ever since he made a film about Jesus (himself a Jew) Gibson's biggest fans are Christians who have a history of selective approval and poor discernment," said an entertainment analyst. "I predict all will be forgotten by the paying public by Easter."
Gibson has since issued an apology.
