Mel Gibson once asked Winona Ryder if she was an "oven dodger"

“We were at a crowded party with one of my good friends,” she said. “And Mel Gibson was smoking a cigar, and we’re all talking and he said to my friend, who’s gay, ‘Oh wait, am I gonna get AIDS?’ And then something came up about Jews, and he said, ‘You’re not an oven dodger, are you?’”

Who says that kind of thing?

He made a joke. It was in bad taste. Life goes on.

Ryder is just looking for attention.

Re: Mel Gibson once asked Winona Ryder if she was an "oven dodger"

It wasn't just a joke. His racism and antisemitism are both well known and established. A normal, decent person doesn't make that kind of joke to begin with.

Re: Mel Gibson once asked Winona Ryder if she was an "oven dodger"

What I don't get it is, if Mel Gibson is anti-Semitic, than why would he make a movie about Jesus Christ and poor so much effort into it?

It just doesn't make sense to me.

Re: Mel Gibson once asked Winona Ryder if she was an "oven dodger"

You've got to be fucking kidding me. Christianity is the SOURCE of anti-antisemitism, so him making a Christian movie about the founder of that religion is perfectly consistent with him being an anti-Jewish bigot.

(Or maybe you were joking. It is hard to tell around here.)

Re: Mel Gibson once asked Winona Ryder if she was an "oven dodger"

For his part, he is denying that this ever happened.

None of us knows if it really did happen.

And in truth, none of us knows if it really did happened.

Unfortunately these days when someone makes an accusation most people automatically believe it. This is counter to one of the main principles of the law: presumption of innocence.

Did he really? We don't know. Winona could be lying through her teeth.
