More Mel Madness

Looking undeniably smarmy, LA County Sheriff’s spokesman Steve Whitmore gave a press conference today denying a coverup of Mel Gibson’s anti-Semitic slurs.

Nikki Finke has an interview with Rabbi Hier of the Simon Wiesenthal Center, decrying Gibson’s slurs and saying he needs help — not just for the drinking problem, but for, you know, hating Jews.

In other news, TMZ.com is running a fantastic PSA Gibson shot for the Sheriff’s office in 2002. Delicious irony and Scott Baio! Who could ask for more?
