Mel Gibson already has a history of using anti-Semitic language. There was a scandal that occurred back in the year 2006 that made people learn more about his views. He was arrested for DUI back then, and he stated, “Jews are responsible for all the wars in the world.” People’s view of him has changed drastically since then.
There are also instances when he would do things that would make people remember this incident. Recently, he was cast as the patriarch of a Jewish family, and people cannot help but wonder how and why this has occurred. The show is supposed to be a comedy, but people are not laughing right now.
To be anti-semitic means to be or say derogatory things about Jewish people. Mel Gibson is a Catholic who strongly believes in Christianity. He has made movies and is a devout Christian. However, Gibson has had a drinking problem and has for many years. In 2006, Gibson was pulled over for driving under the influence of alcohol. He was arrested for DUI, but before he was taken to jail, Gibson began yelling and talking about how horrible the Jewish people are.
Since his arresting office was Jewish, Gibson began making claims that the Jewish people were responsible for all of the wars. It is true that everyone is entitled to make mistakes and people will say things while they are drunk, but to be as specific as Gibson was during that tirade is hard to believe that he is not anti-semitic.
