Stranger Things Star Winona Ryder Accuse Mel Gibson For Anti-Semitism Comments

American actor Winona Ryder has accused actor, filmmaker Mel Gibson of making anti-semitic and anti-gay comments in an interview. Reportedly, the Stranger Things star was asked by a reporter if she had experienced anti-semitism in the industry and she responded with several examples. The ‘Destination Wedding’ star recounted a disturbing run-in with Mel Gibson at a party in 1995, she said, “We were at a crowded party with one of my good friends. And Gibson was smoking a cigar, and we’re all talking and he said to my friend, who’s gay, ‘Oh wait, am I gonna get AIDS?’ And then something came up about Jews, and he said, ‘You’re not an oven dodger, are you?'” Ryder said that Gibson tried to apologise later on. A spokesman for Gibson did not immediately respond to request for comment. Gibson had another notable anti-semitic outburst, when a police report revealed that he said “The Jews are responsible for all the wars in the world!” during a July 2006 DUI arrest. Ryder said in the interview that he is “not religious, but I do identify. It’s a hard thing for me to talk about because I had family who died in the camps, so I’ve always been fascinated with that time.”
