Actor Oldman comes to Gibson and Baldwin’s defense

Gary Oldman is defending fellow actors Mel Gibson and Alec Baldwin from critics of their comments on Jews and homosexuals, saying people need to take a joke. In an expletive-laced interview with Playboy, Oldman decried the “political correctness” that ensnared the two actors. Gibson delivered an anti-Semitic rant in 2006 while being arrested for drunk driving, and he later apologized. Baldwin last year used an anti-gay slur in a New York City street confrontation. “Is Oldham saying if you speak ‘the truth,’ you cannot be a bigot, no matter the manner in which you say it? Well, we doubt he would be okay with someone calling him a limey cokehead. Mr. Oldman and his statements are great lessons for PR students.” Read the full article here: http://www.salon.com/2014/06/24/actor_oldman_comes_to_gibson_and_baldwins_defense/
