Oliver Stone & Mel Gibson Should Hang Out

Oliver Stone stepped in shit over the weekend when he blurted out the infamous “The Jews control everything” line during an interview with the London’s Sunday Times. The director also backed up his favorite pet theory that poor “Hitler was a scapegoat.” Via The Huffington Post:

“Hitler was a Frankenstein but there was also a Dr Frankenstein,” Stone said (via The Telegraph). “German industrialists, the Americans and the British. He had a lot of support…
“Hitler did far more damage to the Russians than [to] the Jewish people, 25 or 30 [million killed].”
The reason few people know this, according to Stone?
“The Jewish domination of the media,” he said. “There’s a major lobby in the United States. They are hard workers. They stay on top of every comment, the most powerful lobby in Washington. Israel has f***** up United States foreign policy for years.”

Not wanting to join everyone’s favorite fiery fellatio demander in Hollywood Jail, Oliver Stone has since walked back his remarks:

“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. Jews obviously do not control media or any other industry. The fact that the Holocaust is still a very important, vivid and current matter today is, in fact, a great credit to the very hard work of a broad coalition of people committed to the remembrance of this atrocity – and it was an atrocity.”

Of course, it should be noted Oliver Stone was under direct pressure from the Anti-Defamation League which kind of proves his point doesn’t it? because they deserved an apology please don’t make me go back to Applebee’s. I’ll be good.
