Mel Gibson Is Not Antisemitic

He just wanted to commit suicide, “death by cop” style.

mel gibsonMEL Gibson reportedly attempted to commit suicide by ‘death by cop’ in 2006 after his wife ended their 26 year marriage.

The Braveheart star tried to goad a police officer into drawing his weapon and shooting, by hurling anti-Semitic slurs after he was stopped for drink driving.

The incident four years ago led to the steady decline of Gibson’s once glittering Hollywood career and public shaming.

But a close friend has revealed Gibson wasn’t anti-Jewish but on a mission to die because he felt he had failed after his wife Robyn had left him.

Death by cop is a popular way of suicide in the US where people deliberately provoke police officers into using their weapons.

Gibson, 55, was said to be distraught at the break-up of his marriage when he returned to his Los Angeles home from filming in 2006 and discovered his wife and seven children had moved out.

A friend of the actor told Hollywood author Peter Biskind that Gibson was trying to get the officer, James Mee, to draw his weapon and fire.

“He felt that he had just absolutely failed as a human being,” a friend told Biskin, writing for the Oscars edition of Vanity Fair magazine. “Mel was trying to invite death by cop.”

“I don’t think this was being anti-Semitic. I think he was trying to rile that guy into pulling out a gun and shooting him.”

According to the friend Gibson had said goodbye to everyone in the restaurant before getting in his car.

“I believe what was going on that night was a farewell,” the friend said.

Gibson had been pulled over on the Pacific Coast Highway near Malibu by officer Mee, who is Jewish.

“The arrest report revealed that Gibson asked Mee if he was Jewish, then said: ‘F****** Jews… the Jews are responsible for all the wars in the world.”

He was later said to have called a female officer at the police station “sugartits.”

Meanwhile, here he is trying to commit suicide by “death by interviewer”, and here he is trying to commit suicide by “death by Hollywood actress.”

Poor misunderstood fellow.
