MALCOLM IN THE MIDDLE star Jane Kaczmarek has slammed Mel Gibson for making controversial film THE PASSION OF THE CHRIST - accusing him of inciting hatred.

The movie about the final days of Jesus Christ's life, which will be released in America tomorrow (24FEB04), has sparked a flurry of controversy from groups who fear it will spark anti-Semitism - and Kaczmarek is far from impressed.

She booms, "Shame on him! Anyone who uses (Jesus') name to incite hatred should be ashamed of themselves.

"The story of Christ is a wonderful story to tell, but if you incite hatred because of the beautiful story of Christ, you're not doing a service to anybody."
