Mel Gibson Loses a Job Over Anti-Semitism Accusations

Braveheart star Mel Gibson has been accused of racist, sexist, and anti-Semitic outbursts many times in the past. In general, he denies responsibility for them, even though some of them have been caught on tape. He's denying the latest one, too, an accusation that he used an anti-Jewish slur in conversation with Winona Ryder back in 1995. At least one of his potential current employers is not buying the denial. Read on for details.

Mad Max got the ax.

Mel Gibson won’t be reprising his role in Netflix’s highly anticipated “Chicken Run” sequel, sources with knowledge of the production told TheWrap. The decision comes after Winona Ryder accused the 64-year-old “Braveheart” star Sunday of leveling anti-Semitic remarks at her during a 1995 Hollywood soiree — and subsequent calls for his cancellation on social media.

The Oscar-winning director’s reps have since denied Ryder’s allegations in an emailed statement to The Post. “This is 100% untrue,” they said, claiming also that the “Stranger Things” star lied in the 2010 GQ article in which she first mentioned the alleged incident.

Ryder claims that when the topic of Jewish faith came up in conversation, the “Mad Max” actor said, “You’re not an oven dodger, are you?” — apparently meaning a Jewish prisoner nearly incinerated in a Nazi death camp.

In the original “Chicken Run” from 2000, Gibson played “Rocky,” a plucky clucker who helped his fine-feathered friends fly the coop before it could be turned into a chicken pot pie factory.

The “chick”-flick became the highest-grossing stop-motion-animation film of all time when it came out, and secured BAFTA and Golden Globe nominations.
