Gary Oldman assumed the officer who arrested Mel Gibson during his infamous DUI rant is one of many “f–king hypocrites” polluting the world, and most likely said racial or Jewish slurs in his lifetime, but now that officer is defending himself.
“I’m Jewish and why would I say that to discredit my own religious makeup?” former L.A. County Sheriff’s Deputy James Mee told TMZ. “The N-word is a scary word. I would never even dream of using it. It sickens me that anyone would use that word.”
Oldman let loose on Hollywood — and the state of the world, in general (we’re doomed, by the way) — during a Playboy interview in which he was asked about Mel Gibson‘s fall from grace after the 2006 arrest.
“He got drunk and said a few things, but we’ve all said those things. We’re all f–king hypocrites. That’s what I think about it. The policeman who arrested him has never used the word n–ger or that f–king Jew?” the “Dawn of the Planet of the Apes” star said. “I’m being brutally honest here. It’s the hypocrisy of it that drives me crazy. Or maybe I should strike that and say ‘the N word’ and ‘the F word,’ though there are two F words now.”
Mee added: “I feel sorry for people that need to say things about other people in order to justify themselves.”
