James Mee, the former L.A. County Sheriff's Deputy who arrested Mel Gibson in 2006 and was on the receiving end of a drunken anti-Semetic tirade by the actor, has a message for Gary Oldman:
WTH are you talking about?!?
The veteran actor ranted to Playboy this week about our politically correct society, saying he hates hypocrites and actually citing Mee as an example.
"The policeman who arrested [Gibson] has never used the word nig-er or that f-cking Jew?" Oldman asks in the interview.
To which Mee has now replied: Ummmm.... no. I haven't.
"I'm Jewish and why would I say that to discredit my own religious makeup?" Mee tells TMZ, adding:
"The N-word is a scary word. I would never even dream of using it. It sickens me that anyone would use that word."
Oldman also defended Alec Baldwin, who came under fire earlier this year for hurling a homophobic slur at a cameraman, because the actor "can't bear double standards."
In his view, certain people (e.g. Jon Stewart and Bill Maher) can get away with saying nearly anything... while other celebrities are persecuted for similar actions or words.
But Mee insists he has never uttered the hateful, bigoted terms Oldman uses as an example throughout his Playboy Q&A, concluding that he just pities the former Harry Potter and Dark Knight star:
"I feel sorry for people that need to say things about other people in order to justify themselves."
