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.

DELETE ME    

he is a washed up has been, take your money and run Mel & keep your mouth shut - then get the mental help u need or join the KKK - either way you're still a **** and I would never watch a movie of yours even if you paid me! The same goes for Tom Cruise! Both major Douche bags - I hope your new agent (if you can find one.....) reads all this BS to you!

OooooNooo!    

Mel goes nuclear and uses bad words in an emotional situation and everyone wants to boycott his movies.
Roman Polanski drugs, anally rapes a underage girl, then flees justice, and everyone wants to forgive and forget because he is a great talent.
Could the difference be Mel is conservative and Roman is a liberal?
Just ask'n.

There are plenty of racists who will go see Mel Gibson's movies and make sure he stays rich. They are his base anyway.

Ari Emanuel sounds like a jerk-off. I bet he hates Gibson for producing "The Passion of the Christ" and Gibson's rant a few years ago is merely Emanuel's public excuse for dropping Gibson.

OK I'll say it - correct answer is: Roman Polanski is Jewish.

My goodness, Mel. What a potty mouth you have!
You have insulted almost every race.
Now beat your girlfriend too.
Your ex-wife was very lucky to get away from you.
What an embarrassment to your children you are.
Much shame.

"Raised in suburban Wilmette, Illinois, outside Chicago, Emanuel is the brother of White House Chief of Staff Rahm Emanuel, NIH bioethicist Ezekiel J. Emanuel, and adopted sister Shoshana Emanuel. His father, the Jerusalem-born.

Dr. Benjamin M. Emanuel is a pediatrician, who was militantly active in the Irgun, a Zionist para military organization. His mother, Martha Emanuel was a civil rights activist, and the one-time owner of a Chicago-area rock and roll club. As a child, Ari was diagnosed as both hyperactive and dyslexic, and his mother spent hours helping him to learn to read. She also took him into anti-war protests. He is a graduate of New Trier West High School and of Macalester College in St. Paul, Minnesota where he was roommates with noted director Peter Berg. He is married to Sarah Addington."

William Morris Endeavor PAY FOR ASSISTANTS
June 19, 2009


" Assistants all over Hollywood work so hard for so little pay. (Which is why there have been so many California government crackdowns on what is tantamount to showbiz slave labor.) Ergo, it's hard to imagine any company trying to get away with paying them less. But tipsters tell me that's what WME is doing. The new agency is "recalculating" the pay for previous WMA assistants (about $13.50 an hour) to be more on a par with former Endeavor assistants (about $9.50 an hour). As one WMA assistant complained to me, "It's depressing to think that my already abysmal pay might go down. That would honestly make the wages unlivable. And infinitely more disgusting knowing the millions of dollars certain agents are making." .."

Good for Ari for kicking his butt to the curb.
