Mel Gibson

Dropped by Agent

7/9/2010 7:13 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

0708-mel-gibson-bn-getty-01Mel Gibson has been dropped by William Morris Endeavor Entertainment -- his agents.

Gibson had been repped by famed agent Ed Limato, who died a week ago.

Apparently, Ari Emanuel, the main honcho at the agency, has had it out for Mel since TMZ broke the story about the actor's anti-Semitic rant following his DUI arrest in 2006.

According to The Hollywood Reporter, Ari has just been waiting for the moment to strike, and the moment has come.

What a piece of crap Mel Gibson is! Your so washed up as an actor anyway. So you hate black people? You don't like the jews. And now your beating up your baby's mama? Thats what your catholic religion teaches you to be? Your pathetic as a man and as a human being! Do all of us a favor and STFU and move out of our country!!

Ari, you're a grudge-holding person and a sorry excuse for a person. It's sad! People like you definitely give Jews a bad reputation!

Loved all of his movies. This is sad but of his own doing. He's always been extremely self-destructive, and it's finally caught up with him. Too bad for him, too bad for his family.

My two cents ;)    

Publicly Mel Gibson acted like a humanitarian in the movies he made. He is a total hypocrite and it's clear he meant nothing in any project he has done. He fooled movie goers for a long time. Not anymore. Mel is a sociopath who for many years did the nice to our faces with the most evil intentions. Never ever will I ever watch any Mel Gibson projects on the count he is a racist, woman beating, alcoholic disturbed two faced evil waste of space.

He will have boatloads of agents going to the mattresses to rep him.
Not everyone has PC politics.
He can recover if he wants to. And if he doesn't, I don't judge him. His religious beliefs are pretty severe. Most of us don't measure up.

Mel Gibson had alcoholism as an excuse for some of his behavior, what is Ari Emanuel's excuse? http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Ari_Emanuel#cite_note-Cieply-15

It appears Emanuel doesn't care for Black people or thinks it is fine for women to be used and/or beaten.

Was that tape spliced together or was Mel encouraged or even blackmailed? Did Mel's own agency leak the tape to TMZ? you know someone like Ari....he's been waiting so long to "get Mel back", does he know Oksana?

Good, but the sad thing is most of the folks who read these posts about "MOVIE STARS" think they know the person. ITS ALL FAKE FOLKS. Movie Stars are a bunch of FAKE PHONE FRAUDS! This proves it.
