Oliver Stone Pulls A Mel Gibson, Makes Anti-Semitic Slam

Jul 27, 2010 12:25 PM


Will the hatred never end? You'd think celebs would be more cautious now after the latest Mel Gibson scandal!

Hollywood director Oliver Stone was asked by the Sunday Times in the UK why there was "such a focus on the Holocaust" and this is what he had to say:

    "The Jewish domination of the media. They stay on top of every comment, the most powerful lobby in Washington. Israel has f***ed up United States foreign policy for years."

Ouch! Not as verbally intense as any of Gibson's rants, but still - Stone has always been the king of controversy.

The director did, however, apologize immediately. "In trying to make a broader historical point about the range of atrocities the Germans committed against many people, I made a clumsy association about the Holocaust, for which I am sorry and I regret," Stone said in a statement.

But that didn't stop the criticism from the Anti-Defamation League and the American Jewish Committee, to name a few. In fact, the AJC exec director David Harris called Stone's remark "no different from one of the drunken, Jew-hating rants of his fellow Hollywood celebrity, Mel Gibson."

Lindsay Goes To AA Meeting, Bar

Dec 6, 2006 10:56 AM

Lindsay Lohan LLOHANMEETING120506_1.jpgSo here's the deal: We've been arguing over whether or not to post our video of Lindsay at AA since first thing this morning, and we've ultimately decided not to post it - not that we have a problem showing you Lindsay getting treatment (especially since her publicist saw fit to announce it to the world earlier this week), but we ultimately decided to show a little restraint (for once). However, Lindsay's destination after the meeting is most certainly newsworthy - our intrepid photographer spotted her SUV (the one she's climbing into in front of Stella McCartney's store at the start of the video clip below) outside of Guy's! Call us crazy, but unless the 13th step involves apologizing to your bartender, maybe a bar isn't the best place for someone undergoing treatment to go - maybe someone ought to tell Lindsay's mom!

One For the Road

Britney Spears BSPEARSWINE112806_01.jpg
Britney's post-Kevin celebration is still in full swing! Last night, we caught her toasting her new-found single status at LA eatery Dan Tana's...in fact, she was still toasting all the way to the car, with a glass of wine in one hand and a ciggy in the other! Not sure you can take a glass full o' wine into a Porsche in California, but you can't fault the girl for trying! And yes, it would normally be a little suspect that Brit can't find the ignition, but in a Porsche, it's on the left side instead of the right!

Click through to see the one thing Brit didn't have with her when she left!

Brangelina's Bodyguards Arrested

Nov 17, 2006 09:58 AM


PR Nightmare BPITT111706_2.jpgIt's getting so hard to find good help these days! X17's India correspondent reported that three of Angelina's bodyguards (British nationals Thomas Mcadam, Robert Patrick, and Michael John Brett) were arrested in Mumbai yesterday - the trio were released late in the evening, but our man on the street reports that they're under strict orders to present themselves to the police every night for the next seven days!

"Breaking" News: Lindsay Lohan Hates Flashes

Nov 3, 2006 08:49 AM

PR Nightmare LLOHANLEGGERS102806_1a.jpgWe're not trying to pass this picture off as new, but the photographer who shot it just stopped by the office and filled us in on the violent backstory!
The photographer you see in the picture above (who's not one of ours) had apparently gotten a little too close to Lindsay earlier in the evening, and according to our photogs, Lindsay snapped and reached out for his camera, breaking his flash in the process! What you're looking at, then, is the aftermath - apparently the photographer was hounding Lindsay every step of the way to her car asking "Who's going to fix my flash?"

X17 News Division - Our Souce's Source Tells Story of Nicole's "Collapse"

Oct 30, 2006 02:20 AM

PR Nightmare NRICHIEHYDE101206_1.jpgThe blogs are abuzz with rumors of a fresh-out-of-rehab Nicole Richie "collapsing", at Hyde Saturday night, but we got this text message from the source of a source (yes, this is a sarcastic reference to ours and everyone else's "inside sources"):

"Ok, so I did a little bit of research and spoke to a reliable source who was at Hyde on Sat. night when Nicole was in there and [people] definitely streched the truth a bit. She didn't 'collapse' - that implies that she had some sort of medical issue or something. My source says that she simply had too much to drink and passed out on the couch. There wasn't any ambulance or any hospital run. She used two of them as crutches to help walk/carry her out the back door. I can't understand - what she's doing there to begin with when she's supposed to be in rehab?"

Here's a pre-rehab (if there every really was a rehab) Nicole looking pretty exhausted as she left Hyde a little over two weeks ago - if she didn't "collapse" then, why might she have done so on Saturday night?

Book Thrown At Paris

Sep 26, 2006 12:03 PM

PR Nightmare PHILTONARREST090706_01.jpgParis Hilton may be sticking to her guns about having only imbibed one drink the night she was arrested for driving under the influence earlier this month, but it looks like the law saw things differently - word just came down from the authorities that Paris is set to be charged for her DUI!
Although Paris Hilton facing conviction would be an unlikely scenario even if she didn't have more money than Croesus (first offenders are typically given probation, restrictions on their license, and orders to attend several months' worth of AA meetings), she could face up to six months in jail for her actions.
Anyone else looking forward to seeing how Elliot Mintz spins his way out of this one?
