A stunned Hollywood debated the future of one of its biggest stars Sunday as a sheriff's watchdog launched an investigation into a possible cover up of a leaked report that quoted Mel Gibson unleashing a tirade of anti-Semitic remarks during a drunken driving arrest.

One media expert said Gibson irreparably damaged his career with his "crazy" behavior following his arrest by Los Angeles County Sheriff's deputies in Malibu early Friday. Charges of anti-Semitism were also leveled against the actor-director with the release of his 2004 blockbuster "The Passion of the Christ."

"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."

The entertainment Web site TMZ posted what it said were four pages from the original arrest report, which quoted Gibson as launching an expletive-laden "barrage of anti-Semitic remarks" after he was stopped on Pacific Coast Highway.

According to the report, in addition to threatening the arresting deputy and trying to escape, Gibson said, "The Jews are responsible for all the wars in the world," and asked the officer, James Mee, "Are you a Jew?"

The report has not been made public, but the Los Angeles Times reported Sunday that it had independently verified its authenticity.

I thought Mel went way overboard and let it slip just how important he believes he is and how little he cares about Jews.

I also posted these at Drunkenpuppies. I thought he bore a remarkable resemblance to another well know Jew hater :wink::

I think that he lost his Jewish audience and he lost me. I abhor racism and I regret every time I defended Gibson's preceived anti-Semitism as a failure by his accusers to understand his 'true intent'. After all, how could such a devout Catholic harbor such bigotry.

I was a fool not to see that his critics were right. Gibson is a racist, hateful, drunk (by his own admission....)


The report says Gibson then launched into a barrage of anti-Semitic statements: "F***ing Jews… The Jews are responsible for all the wars in the world." Gibson then asked the deputy, "Are you a Jew?"
