Mel Gibson said John Lennon deserved to die, according to the screenwriter of the failed “Maccabee” project, Joe Eszterhas.
In a scathing 9-page letter, obtained by The Wrap, Joe Eszterhas claims Mel Gibson once ranted about John Lennon: “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 Joe Eszterhas, Mel Gibson 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, Joe Eszterhas claims Mel Gibson said this of Ari Emanuel, the head of the William Morris Endeavor Agency: “He’s a c*nt Jewboy.”
Mel Gibson has fired back at Joe Eszterhas , claiming the letter is a pack of lies.
