Mel Gibson celebrates John Lennon's death, claiming he deserved to die ... this according to the screenwriter of the failed "Maccabee" project, Joe Eszterhas.

In a scathing 9-page letter, obtained by The Wrap, Eszterhas claims Mel once ranted about the departed Beatle, "I'm glad he's dead. He deserved to be shot. He was f**king messianic. Listen to his songs! Imagine. I hate that f**king song. I'm glad he's dead."

According to Eszterhas, Mel saved his true fury for Oksana Grigorieva, saying, "I want to f**k her in the ass and stab her while I'm doing it."

And on the business side, Eszterhas claims Mel said this of Ari Emanuel, the head of the William Morris Endeavor Agency: "He's a c*nt Jewboy."

Mel has fired back at Joe, claiming the letter is a pack of lies.

Accusations against Gibson pop up with faithful regularity. Someone has an agenda, perhaps?

some of it may actually be true, though. i knew someone like that who would switch into rages for no good reason and yell or text the worst, meanest things he could think of. if i had kept the voice mails and texts, he would have been charged. if you asked him about it, he would lie.

If Eszterhas is lying Mel will sue him for defamation. You don't sue if the accusations are true because it will be proven in court and remove all doubt. If you don't sue the claims are never proven, just keep saying they are lies and hope people believe you.

people need to leave Mel alone already. There are two celebrated Hollywood directors who are child Molestors (well one accused who fled the country, one convicted), yet they're still going after Mel.

Mel Gibson is a man of his words... and his words are hateful, disgusting and racist. Not just to Jews. He hates and has used racial slurs against African Americans, Latinos, Asians and women. These rants have been RECORDED. So who do you want to believe? Even worse... he may make a sequel to The Beaver! The hate filled man must be STOPPED!!

Did anyone actually see The Beaver? I remember seeing the preview and thinking it was a joke.

I didn't see The Beaver but he saws off his own hand and arm in order to "kill" the Beaver. Now you know why the movie failed. Oh and it starred Mel Gibson.

I thought it was generally acknowledged that Mel G is a crazy f__k, like the characters he plays already; that we the public have tired of Mel-bashing, he got the point and we're all bat sh_t crazy ourselves; and that this Esterhazy guy is loony.

Still love ya Mel! This guy obviously is out to smear you... he makes his intentions to ruin you too obvious to take seriously.
