Joe Eszterhas to Mel Gibson: You Hate Jews!

by at . Comments

Joe Eszterhas, a screenwriter tasked with penning the since-rejected screenplay for Mel Gibson's latest movie, has accused the actor of anti-Semitism.

"You hate Jews," bluntly says Basic Instinct and Showgirls writer Eszterhas, who was to write Gibson's film about Biblical Jewish hero Judah Maccabee.

In a nine-page letter to Warner Bros., Eszterhas accuses Gibson of solely pitching The Maccabees "to deflect charges of anti-Semitism which have dogged [him]."

Mel then allegedly made anti-Semitic remarks throughout the writing process.

Good Ol Mel Pic

In his letter, Eszterhas (who is Jewish) claimed that Gibson continually referred to Jews in front of him as "Hebes," "oven-dodgers" and "Jewboys."

He also claims Mel called the Holocaust "mostly a lot of horses--t"; and said his intention with The Maccabees was "to convert Jews to Christianity."

Not surprisingly, Gibson fired back just hours later.

Calling Eszterhas' claims "utter fabrications," the oft-troubled star responds, "I will acknowledge that like most creative people I am passionate and intense."

"I was very frustrated that when you arrived at my home at the expense of both Warner Bros. and myself you hadn't written a single word of a script."

"Not even an outline after 15 months of research, meetings, discussions and the outpouring of my heartfelt vision for this story."

"I did react more strongly than I should have. I promptly sent you a written apology, the colorful words of which you apparently now find so offensive. So let me now clearly apologize to you and your family in the simplest of terms."

Gibson, who wrote that he refused to address Eszterhas' missive line-by-line, adds:

"Contrary to your assertion that I was only developing The Maccabees to burnish my tarnished reputation, I have been working on this project for over 10 years."

"That was publicly announced eight years ago."

"I absolutely want to make this movie; it's just that neither Warner Brothers nor I want to make this movie based on your script."

The actor-director maintained that both he was "extremely disappointed" with Eszterhas' draft, which he claims he spent two years researching.

Did you ever ask yourself what are jews good for? for me they are not good for nothing except to destroy families as they did to my family, out of 5 children of my Great Grand Mother (GGM) they destroy my Grand Mother the 1st. born of my GGM which was a girl, really do not know how it happen but she suppose to marry a jew for my Great Grand Father was a Rabbi and his 1st. daughter end up marring an christian orthodox, which is my Grand Father. The other 4 children marry jews and this is what sparkle the fire and the jews keep on destroying on my Grand Mother side which married a christian orthodox. Also put hate between the children and grand children and I am one of them caught up on this crap because of junk judaism.
