Because Gary Oldman’s got a movie to whore out hard and Jews, The Fifth Element fans (yes, he threw shade at The Fifth Element, sharpen your shanks) and black people buy a lot of movie tickets, he started off his inevitable apology tour last night by releasing a statement to the Anti-Defamation League where he apologized for the Jewish stereotypes his mouth hole farted up during his ranting interview with Playboy. Gary (or whoever wrote that apology) laid it on extra, extra thick and that statement read like it was dripping in condescending sarcasm. One of the last lines in his statement was, “The Jewish People, persecuted thorough the ages, are the first to hear God’s voice, and surely are the chosen people.” I’m surprised he didn’t end that statement with, “Viva Matzah Balls!” The Anti-Defamation League didn’t buy Gary’s apology, which is kind of surprising, because some charity organization (see: PETA) would take Gary’s fake apology, get him to star in an ad campaign and milk the shit out of him. But the ADL told Gary to try again. via Yahoo
The Anti-Defamation League was unimpressed by Oldman’s apology for defending Mel Gibson’s past anti-Semitic comments.
“We have just begun a conversation with his managing producer,” said Abraham H. Foxman, national director of the ADL. “At this point, we are not satisfied with what we have received. His apology is insufficient and not satisfactory.”
Since Gary’s first apology was wrapped in lukewarm sarcasm, I fully expect him to apologize again by dressing up as an Orthodox rabbi and going to the ADL’s offices to sing every song from Fiddler on the Roof while clutching an autographed picture of Barbra Streisand.
Gary’s entire Playboy interview, where he gets into EVERYTHING, is here if your eyes need it. While reading that interview I came across this dingle that told me everything I need to know about Gary Oldman:
PLAYBOY: What’s your take on legalizing marijuana?
OLDMAN: It’s silly to me. I’m not for it.
Bitch should be for it, because bitch sounds like he needs some. Good day, Sirius Black.
