In a post by celebrity agent Ari Emmanuel (Ari Gold), he calls for Hollywood to stop working with Mel Gibson in any professional way.
Now we know the truth. And no amount of publicist-approved contrition can paper it over. People in the entertainment community, whether Jew or gentile, need to demonstrate that they understand how much is at stake in this by professionally shunning Mel Gibson and refusing to work with him, even if it means a sacrifice to their bottom line.
If that wasn’t enough, ABC has pulled Mel Gibson’s Holocaust series after 2 years of development. The studio says they didn’t even get a script yet. This would probably be good for Gibson’s father since he denies the Holocaust happened.
On top of that, a source tells LA Weekly that Mel Gibson was suicidal. The post is now dead, but it was up there.
This is such a bigger issue than ‘Will he work again?’ This is about his not wanting to live anymore. I’ve seen what he’s gone through and what he’s going through. You have to understand the disease of alcoholism. He was back in it. There’s no doubt in my mind he was trying to kill himself that night.”
All this is taking a lot of heat off Tom Cruise. If I was Tom, I’d go as crazy I could right now because there’s no way he’ll ever get a chance like this again and next time he does something crazy, it will just seem normal.
Update: ABC put up some pictures of Mel in Malibu partying before his little incident.
