Gary Oldman Apologized to the Anti-Defamation League

Gary Oldman’s people are doing damage control after his interview with Playboy came out. If you’ll remember, he defended Mel Gibson and Alec Baldwin and believed that Gibson was being railroaded because the Jews control Hollywood. The Anti-Defamation League called him out on his old man rambling accusing him of propagating anti-Semetic stereotypes. The ADL rightfully called Oldman out on his idiocy saying Gibson wasn’t ostracized by Hollywood because he was “biting the hand that fed him” but because he exposed his bigotry and hatred. In response, Oldman sent out an explanation.

Dear Gentlemen of the ADL:

I am deeply remorseful that comments I recently made in the Playboy Interview were offensive to many Jewish people. Upon reading my comments in print—I see how insensitive they may be, and how they may indeed contribute to the furtherance of a false stereotype. Anything that contributes to this stereotype is unacceptable, including my own words on the matter. If, during the interview, I had been asked to elaborate on this point I would have pointed out that I had just finished reading Neal Gabler’s superb book about the Jews and Hollywood, An Empire of Their Own: How the Jews invented Hollywood. The fact is that our business, and my own career specifically, owes an enormous debt to that contribution.

I hope you will know that this apology is heartfelt, genuine, and that I have an enormous personal affinity for the Jewish people in general, and those specifically in my life. The Jewish People, persecuted thorough the ages, are the first to hear God’s voice, and surely are the chosen people.

I would like to sign off with “Shalom Aleichem”—but under the circumstances, perhaps today I lose the right to use that phrase, so I will wish you all peace–Gary Oldman.

Did he just kiss some Jewish ass in that letter? Yup. For the record, I agree with the gist of what Oldman has to say about the world becoming too politically correct but the examples he uses to illustrate his point are absolutely retarded. Whoops, I’m sorry. What I meant to say was “fucking retarded.”
