Follow up to Mel Gibson's California DUI Arrest

Mel Gibson the Night of his DUIHollywood and movie fans continue to speculate about the fallout from Mel Gibson’s DUI arrest and anti-Semitic and sexist remarks. Headlines from Los Angeles and industry papers point out the difficulties. " ‘Despicable’ words could taint Gibson," said the Hollywood Reporter. "Gibson gaffe could impact career," read Variety. A Los Angeles Times news analysis said, "Crossing this line could cost him deals."

On the other end of the spectrum Rabbi David Baron has extended an offer to Gibson to speak at his Beverly Hills based Temple of the Arts for Yom Kippur. That is the Jewish Day of Atonement and Baron thought it would be a good opportunity for making amends with the Jewish community and to initiate change in anti-semite bias.
