Temple Hits Up Mel Gibson for Money, Cites Anti-Semitism Allegations

Jan 27, 2012  •  Post A Comment

A California temple is trying to get Mel Gibson to help it out with financial problems, sending a provocative letter to the actor that appears to try to shame him into making a large donation, TMZ.com reports.

The website quotes a letter from Congregation Beth Shalom in Corona saying: "Our proposal to you, Mr. Gibson, is since you have been cited as an Anti-Semitic, and have denied those allegations, what better way to prove to all your fans and the nay Sayers — than to endorse and help raise funds for our cause — SOS, Save Our Synagogue."

The temple is having trouble repaying a loan on its synagogue and is trying to head off foreclosure, the story reports. Gibson has reportedly made big contributions to charities in the past, including $5 million to Cedars-Sinai Medical Center.

A rep for Gibson said he did not know about the request, according to TMZ.

  2. This tribe has no shame.

  3. i am shocked, shocked to find that a alcoholic, while drunk, said nasty things and insulted people !!
