Posted on 07/09/2010 5:37:19 PM PDT by NohSpinZone
And last Friday, WME board member Ari Emanuel "woke up at 3 AM and emailed his partner Patrick Whitesell that 'we can't represent a guy who said the N-word'." So the agency dumped Mel Gibson on July 2nd, and the next day, on July 3rd, his agent Limato died.

I'm not excusing Mel's behavior. But spare me the moral outrage WME, you filthy whores.
What about the racial slurs the New Black Panthers were publicly yelling at whites, racial attacks this Administration is supporting?
As a Jew, I had to laugh when I read this. His anti-semetic rant didn’t throw them over the edge. His purported spousal abuse didn’t do it...what gets these Hollywood liberal Jews all hot and crazy??? THE N WORD. The word that’s used in almost all the popular movies and rap these days. I have to pray for Hollywood Jews..they know not what they do.
Ari is also Rahm’s brother. Tell you a lot about the type of family.
Uttering a racial slur: damned in the currrent sick, racist culture of ONE WAY political correctness as the unspeakably worst thing ever.
Openly advocating the murder of white infants: tacitly supported by an American Presidential Administration.
Ratcheting closer to American Civil War II.....
Incredibly enough, Mel still has an active career going.
Mel was cursing out his manipulative “girlfriend” who seduced him and ruined his family. Now she is planning to ruin his life with this tape.
Both need our prayers.
hehehehehehehehe! If WME start dumping people because of words uttered in private conversations, they will have no clients. That is if they plan to be consistent. What hypocrits!
Love the quote!
I did not know that! That tells me all I ever need to know about Ari...
The speech and thought police need get a new life, or dry up and blow away.
The blacks get to use every racist word in the book for themselves and us whites, but Oo, let a white use the “N” word and we might as well be stoned to death.
We can not even use “negro” anymore. We have to call them “African American”, a term that I will never use.
Actually, when THE PASSION came out, they did not know what to do with themselves about Mel’s politics/religion becuz there was a particularly revealing article about Mel’s father’s antiSemitism that had everyone in Hollywood seething. Hollywood at large really hated it that the film made so much money; it seemed like an anti Semitic screed. All told, Mel did pick a strangely metaphysical Catholic screenwriter for THE PASSION, he had done a similarly creepy job on a John Huston’s WISE BLOOD.
If he REALLY wanted to insult someone he should have called them “Hollywood WME types”...
If all our conversations that we thought were private were all made public, I think we’d all be screwed.
Very true. Nonetheless, it's been difficult to stick up for Mel these last couple of years. He seems to have really gone off the deep end. It's a shame. I rented Edge of Darkness from a redbox the other night and it was just an outstanding film! One of Gibson's best performances! It was great to see him in front of the camera again and in top form.
Unfortunately, Mel's personal life has overshadowed the fact that he's still a first-rate talent who has made and continues to make some incredible films. I believe this is going to hurt him in the box office, causing excellent movies like this one to disappear under the shadow of his increasingly erratic behavior.
His problem is that he's been avoiding medical care for years and sticking to the tried and true self-medication of strong drink!
No sane person holds anyone who's bipolar accountable for cussing ~
I do not care anymore, bring the N word back and what the hell is that anyway???
WME’s clients list includes: Sean Combs (P Diddy or whatever he is calling himself these days), Eminem, Lil’ Wayne, 50 Cent, Snoop Dogg, and Kayne West... So I guess if saying “the N-word” is such a big deal, WME should probably drop these guys too........
More PC Hollywood garbage against a good man, think I’ll watch Passion again.
No way, right? It’s because these poor boys all came from deprived socio-economic backgrounds and don’t know any better. Pure tripe and typical political correct nonsense.
Wasn’t the “ex girlfriend” first impregnated by Timothy Dalton? Guess that kid is growing up so she needed another 18 year infusion of child support and Mel got played for a dummie. This is the ex girlfriend’s career...have a baby and get a payoff. John Edwards is in the same kind of honey trap...the dope. Mel should pay the Russkie off and be done with her. The only hope for Mel if is his exwife Robyn, and his 7 kids, take pity on him and take him back. He needs counseling and comforting more than he needs a trophy wife or girl friend.
That’ll score ya some points with shabazz...
Groundbreaking environmental-espionage shocker Edge of Darkness (1985) begins routinely enough but then ratchets the suspense to levels that would have turned Hitchcock himself green with envy. Emma Craven (Joanne Whalley in her first staring role) is a young environmental activist killed in mysterious circumstances. Emma's father Ron Craven (Bob Peck in a star-making performance) will not be silenced and, as a police detective, is uniquely positioned to pursue his own unofficial investigation. He moves from grief to a determination to find the truth, all the while advised and/or comforted by Emma, but is she a ghost or a manifestation of his haunted psyche? Craven digs deeper, uncovering labyrinthine conspiracy in the nuclear industry and, as the body count rises, encounters the garrulous CIA agent Darius Jedburgh (a superb Joe Don Baker) with a mysterious agenda of his own. Accompanied by a haunting musical score by Michael Kamen and Eric Clapton, Edge of Darkness builds on the legacy of Tinker Tailor, Soldier, Spy and Smiley’s People to become quite simply the best television thriller ever. —Gary S. Dalkin
Mel has a right to be a racist. If I only watched movies or listened to music made completely by angels, I’d be very bored.
I listened to a portion of that tape. Nobody deserves to be be spoken to that way.
Truer words were never spoken. In fact, each of us has a constitutional right to be a racist — as most blacks I’ve ever known proudly are — and it’s time that each of us reasserts that right.
If the president of the United States can openly and viciously discriminate against whites at will (see his response to the 2008 NAACP questionnaire, see his Hate Crimes bill, read his own books, listen to his own “reconciliation” speech), then the rest of us ought to be able to us the “N” word any damn time we please.
I moved to Hollywood 6 years ago and honestly, I have less and less interest in seeing a movie every year I live here. I think I get to the theater about once a year. And I have no TV. These people are all about the scuzziest creatures imaginable.
Backlash is a VERY ugly thing.
The new N word, Nobama.
An actor without a script is a disaster waiting to happen.
So, tell all of us ...what is your opinion ....???
“I’m not excusing Mel’s behavior”
Nor do I...
just a regular woman here....
Gibson has said and done some REAL Stupid stuff....
the worst of which is being an old man..smitten with a ... well..a gold-digging bitch...
My X and I ...both of us said dumb things at the end of the relationship...BUT...neither one of us taped the conversations and used it for personal gain...
Ouch....he left the mother of his 8 kids for this horror of a woman...
I’m thinking “Karma”
This is apparently the sort of outfit that Mel objected to in his rant.
OK, let's hear the Not Guilty Chorus.
Here’s a few more they have no problem with:
50 Cent - Former drug dealer
Alex Rodriguez - cheated by using banned drugs
Eminem - Pistol whipped a man
Larry King - Convicted of passing bad checks
Snoop Dogg - Drug and illegal gun crimes
Whoopi Goldberg - “Not rape rape”
Winona Ryder - Convicted thief
Apparently saying the wrong word is worse than gun crimes and assault.
Double standard, anyone?
This Wm MNorris agency is really a nazi outfit.
They promoted a conceert in Illegally occupied ethnically cleansed northern Cyrprus put on by the Muzxie turks-—with pressure from the victims and their allies J-LO cancelled the concert. YESSS!!
Mel: Get another agent or be your own agent-—you should not be represented by these nazi scum.
Whitey gittin’ uppity. Anything disgusting but that. /s/
HE/MEL RUINED his family...and his life!!!!!!! Period!!!!!!
There are actors who have gone and given aid and comfort to the enemies of the US, and that is OK with Hollywood. Same deal with molesting and raping children. Anything is OK except for being a “racist,” the definition it appears today, is meaningless. It used to mean something horrible. Now, it’s just a white guy who says things which upset some people. Note that Robert Byrd would have been A-OK in Hollywood and he was a KKK member. One must be a lib and they can do or say anything.
Well, it might have something to do with reports of him hitting his ex girlfriend as well and knocking out some teeth. I don’t know the facts but police are investigating.
Oh, I agree...Mel is an alcoholic and probably manic depressive, and is out of control.
Can you say “midlife crisis”?
But after the adultery, she is the one who released this tape to ruin his life, where she could have just taken the money and run.
Can you say: Revenge?
I don’t think the New Black Panthers are William Morris Agency clients.
Me: Opinions differ.
Thinkin: So, tell all of us ...what is your opinion ....???
Me: OK. My opinion is: THEY KNOW EXACTLY WHAT THEY ARE DOING. And I would not limit this to "Hollywood Jews" but the entire Hollywood / Liberal establishment. They are actively trying to deconstruct our culture, elevate everything immoral, dennigrate our religion, hold up the worst as the best, support some freakish vision of our future that is all about a homosexual, transgendered, post-moral freakshow.
Anyone who stands against them while trying to work in their industry is crushed, exiled, excluded and rejected. You have to be on the team (call it Team Sodomy) to get anywhere.
