Letter from Steven
Spielberg to Mel Gibson-Fiction!
Summary of the eRumor: An open letter to Mel Gibson
said to be from Steven Spielberg. It is a follow-up to Mel
Gibson's much publicized arrest for driving under the influence of
alcohol in California on July 28, 2006, and event that Los Angeles
County Sheriff's deputies say also included anti-Semitic comments by
The Truth: There is no evidence that this
letter was written by Steven Spielberg.
Most of the places where the letter appears on the web attribute it to
someone named Steven Silberberg, not Steven Spielberg. Also, the
writer of the article claims to be from New Rochelle, New York, and
there is no record of Steven Spielberg living there. He does have
homes on Long Island, New York, and in California.
A real example of the eRumor as it has
appeared on the Internet:
The following letter was written by Steven Spielberg please forward if
August 10th 2006
Dear Mr. Gibson,
I am one Jew who doesn't accept your apology today. I don't
because you have spit on the graves of the Goldwyns, the Warners,
Mayers, the Cohns, the Foxes, the Thalbergs, the Selznicks, the
the thousands of other Jews both living and dead who have made
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
known, when you were starting out in the film industry.
You are a despicable human being, one that doesn't even have the
realize that he has repeatedly bitten the hand that fed him.
(or your publicity agents) say today, does not even begin to
long standing theories about the Jewish people. Apparently the
not fall far from the tree. If you haven't yet distanced yourself
father's views of the Holocaust, why should the Jewish community
you, or believe anything you have to say now.
Your words are a thinly veiled attempt to admit that you really
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
kind, and your hollow outreach is worth less than the price of
drink, which will surely find itself in your hands before long.
Of course, if I am wrong, you could start by donating $1,000,000
the State of Israel in her time of need.
Surely that is a small public relations price to pay for a man of
stature who "honors all of God's children".
