Mel Gibson - Mel Gibson Said John Lennon Deserved To Be Shot?

Joe Eszter has claimed Mel Gibson is ''glad'' John Lennon is dead.

According to a letter by the screenwriter obtained by The Wrap, it alleges Mel was happy when the Beatles legend was shot and killed in 1980 because he had a messiah complex.

In part of the nine page letter, Joe claims Mel once said: ''He deserved to be shot. He was f***ing messianic. Listen to his songs! 'Imagine.' I hate that f***ing song. I'm glad he's dead.''

Mel has also been accused of ''hating Jews'' by the 'Basic Instinct' writer, who claimed he sabotaged a movie called 'The Maccabees', which they had planned together.

Joe wrote: I've come to the conclusion that you never had, or have, any intention of making a film about the Maccabees.

''I believe you announced the project with great fanfare - 'a Jewish Braveheart' - in an attempt to deflect continuing charges of anti-Semitism which have dogged you.

''I've come to the conclusion that the reason you won't make 'The Maccabees' is the ugliest possible one. You hate Jews.''

I hate men who cheat on their wives with their wives' best friends. If Joe wants to call out Mel, I'm going to call out him.
