Busting A Myth - Steven Spielberg Did Not Write The Letter To Mel Gibson
Summary: The letter may make you feel good, but it is not real. Please be sure of the facts before you forward emails.
   Many people are forwarding an email that was supposedly written by Steven Spielberg to Mel Gibson. While many of the readers of the letter would have liked the letter to be true because, as one person who we informed the letter was false stated, "According to a fellow email contact (Boycott Watch) the letter is a hoax, however much I agreed with the content."

   This comment only proves how much people want to believe such letters and will forward them on without knowing if the content of the email is factual or not. We view this as an opportunity to stress the need to be sure of the facts at hand before spreading rumors.

Subject: Fw: Written by Steven Spielberg

Dear Mr. Gibson,

I am one Jew who doesn't accept your apology today. I don't accept it, because you have spit on the graves of the Goldwyns, the Warners, the Mayers, the Cohns, the Foxes, the Thalbergs, the Selznicks, the Zukors and the thousands of other Jews both living and dead who have made your questionable career possible.

When you do get out of "rehab" and recount your millions, please consider how much of your fortune you would have if you had made your true feelings known, when you were starting out in the film industry.

You are a despicable human being, one that doesn't even have the sense to realize that he has repeatedly bitten the hand that fed him. Whatever you (or your publicity agents) say today, does not even begin to redress your long standing theories about the Jewish people. Apparently the apple does not fall far from the tree. If you haven't yet distanced yourself from your father's views of the Holocaust, why should the Jewish community meet with you, or believe anything you have to say now.

Your words are a thinly veiled attempt to admit that you really messed up this time, and you want to cover yourself, so that you can continue to be adored and further your revenue stream.

The truth is, you are an unreformed, unrepentant anti semite of the worst kind, and your hollow outreach is worth less than the price of your next drink, which will surely find itself in your hands before long. I'm buying.

Of course, if I am wrong, you could start by donating $1,000,000 today to the State of Israel in her time of need.

Surely that is a small public relations price to pay for a man of your stature who "honors all of God's children".
