When Mel Gibson announced that he was producing a movie about legendary Jewish warrior Judah Maccabee, anybody whose brain hasn’t been logged with jacuzzi water could clearly see that he was only doing this to make people forget that he spends his off hours punching yarmulkes while sticking his nasty peen in a fleshlight modeled after Eva Braun’s pussy. Well, Joe Eszterhas, the screenwriter Mad Mel hired to work with him on the script, just learned this BRAND NEW information and let that ho have it in a 9 page letter.
Clueless Joe from Hannibal, DUH should’ve kept it simple by simple writing, “Dear Mel, you’re a glum cunt. Fuck off. I hate you.,” but instead he detailed the reasons why working with Mel was the worst professional experience of his career. Warner Bros. rejected Joe’s script and he blames it all on Mel. In the letter magically obtained by The Wrap, Joe writes that instead of focusing on the script, Mad Mel raged about murdering Oksana Gregorieva during ass sex (Side Note: Strangely enough, that sounds like a scene Joe Eszterhas would write.) and constantly referred to Jews as “oven dodgers.” So yeah, it’s just Mel being Mel!
Here’s a few choice quotes, but click here if you need to say DUH on a loop while reading a 9 page letter:
On Mel’s love of slurs: “You continually called Jews ‘Hebes’ and ‘oven-dodgers’ and ‘Jewboys.’ It seemed that most times when we discussed someone, you asked ‘He’s a Hebe, isn’t he?’ You said most ‘gatekeepers’ of American companies were ‘Hebes’ who ‘controlled their bosses.'”
On how Mel thinks the Holocaust is basically a work of fiction: “You said the Holocaust was ‘mostly a lot of horseshit.’ You said the Torah made reference to the sacrifice of Christian babies and infants. When I told you that you were confusing the Torah with The Protocols of the Elders of Zion, … you insisted ‘it’s in the Torah — it’s in there!’ (It isn’t).”
On how Mel is always just being Mel: “I’ve come to the conclusion that the reason you won’t make ‘The Maccabees’ is the ugliest possible one. You hate Jews.”
On how Mel threatened to put a hit out on Oksana: “You were raving at Oksana even after you’d reached a custody agreement over Luci…. And then you were even more explicit about your threat: ‘I’m going to kill her! I’m going to have her killed!’ You said you’d become friends with two FBI agents (or former FBI agents) and they were going to help you to kill her.”
On how Mel is still as romantic as ever: “You said, ‘I want to fuck her in the ass and stab her to death while I’m doing it.'”
Mel, his publicist and three bottles of Valium all got into a room together and wrote a calm open response to Joe and released it to Deadline. Mel says that Joe made a lot of that shit up, but he also apologizes for using “colorful” words.
I will acknowledge like most creative people I am passionate and intense. I was very frustrated that when you arrived at my home at the expense of both Warner Brothers and myself you hadn’t written a single word of a script or even an outline after 15 months of research, meetings, discussions and the outpouring of my heartfelt vision for this story. I did react more strongly than I should have. I promptly sent you a written apology, the colorful words of which you apparently now find offensive. Let me now clearly apologize to you and your family in the simplest of terms.
Contrary to your assertion that I was only developing Maccabees to burnish my tarnished reputation, I have been working on this project for over 10 years and it was publicly announced 8 years ago. I absolutely want to make this movie; it’s just that neither Warner Brothers nor I want to make this movie based on your script.
Honestly, Joe, not only was the script delivered later than you promised, both Warner Brothers and I were extraordinarily disappointed with the draft. In 25 years of script development I have never seen a more substandard first draft or a more significant waste of time. The decision not to proceed with you was based on the quality of your script, not on any other factor.
If Mel’s “colorful” words were a Crayon color, it’s name would be, Anti-Semite Sepia or Razzle Dazzle IHATEFUCKINGJEWS Rose.
What can you really say? I’d be more shocked if Mel Gibson didn’t say crap like this. If you put a grey wig on top of Hilter’s anus and asked it to frown, it would look like Mad Mel so none of this is surprising at all. I’ve heard that Joe isn’t exactly as innocent and pure as a newly grown hair on a virgin angel’s taint, but there’s one small fact that leads me to his side…. THE DUDE WROTE SHOWGIRLS, all other arguments are invalid.
