Actor/director Mel Gibson has been accused of reneging on his promise to meet Jewish leaders as part of his "path to healing" after making anti-Semitic remarks during an arrest for drunk driving.
The current President of the Zionist Organization Of America, Morton Klein, attempted to meet the star after he pledged that he would love to meet Jewish leaders to talk about the July incident.
However, Klein was told the tough guy actor had changed his mind.
"I called his publicist, told him I would be in Los Angeles for 10 days and would be willing to meet with Gibson privately, off the record. The publicist called back and said Gibson doesn't want to meet Jewish leaders after all. We've told our people not to support any of his projects."
Yikes. Maybe Mel isn't as repentant as he claims to be. In his defense, he has laid relatively low since his arrest (even with his new film, Apocalypto, garnering wide praise) and did appear apologetic. And he is certainly rising in the court of public opinion now that Michael Richards has been exposed as an insane racist as well.
