Mel Gibson Called Winona Ryder An “Oven Dodger”

I really, and I mean really, need a Mel Gibson soundboard. Us Magazine reports:
Back in the 90s, Winona Ryder was a huge star — who had a very unpleasant run-in with another huge star, Mel Gibson, at least a decade before he became notorious for making racist, offensive remarks on record. “I remember, like, fifteen years ago, I was at one of those big Hollywood parties. And [Gibson] was really drunk,” Ryder, 39, tells the January GQ of the controversial actor, 54. “I was with my friend, who’s gay. [Gibson] made a really horrible gay joke. And somehow it came up that I was Jewish. He said something about ‘oven dodgers,’ but I didn’t get it,” Ryder admits of the slur, an ugly reference to the Holocaust. “I’d never heard that before. It was just this weird, weird moment. I was like, ‘He’s anti-Semitic and he’s homophobic.’ No one believed me!”
Mel Gibson is a racist, unhinged lunatic filled with seething hatred and rage, but goddamn if he can’t tell a joke. I wish I could take him to a homeless shelter of Russian women and gay Jews and this site would write itself for a year.
