Mel Gibson Condemned By NAACP & Anti-Defamation LeagueS

  • In response to Mel Gibson's disgusting, N-word laced rant, both the Anti-Defamation League and the NAACP have already denounced him, with the latter saying, "An apology is insufficient given his history of racism, sexism and anti-Semitism.

The statement continues, "It is unfortunate that a man of his statue and admiration, who has made his millions off of women, African-Americans and Jews harbor such racist, sexist, and anti-Semitic feeling against people who have admired and respected him for decades... He has set one of the worse examples for our young children and adults at a time when this country is making significant progress in moving toward a color-blind society. No amount of words will change his image as an out of date and out of control racist. Only a sustained period of positive acts can his legacy be redeemed." [Radar]
