Looks like Mel Gibson’s drunken rant about Jews and how he owns Malibu is already having an impact. ABC just announced they’re canceling a planned miniseries about the Holocaust Mel’s production company was supposed to make for them:
The incident has raised questions about the future of projects Gibson and his Icon Productions company are working on, like the ABC television miniseries based on a memoir about a Dutch Jew during World War II, the newspaper said.
An ABC representative told the paper, without elaborating, it has been two years and the network still has not seen a script, so the project is being pulled.
Well, that was very politic of them. They’re not canceling it because Mel has revealed his bigotry towards Jews, but because they’ve not seen a script. Very nicely played, Sugartits.
