I am glad he was fired.
So glad people are calling this racism. As much as what he said was horrible, and ditto for Charlie Sheen's Anti-Semitic RACIST comments they are not Mel Gibson.
Mel Gibson would have rushed to Nazi Germany to help Hitler unlike the courageous Marlene Dietrich and Eric Von Stroheim (as well as others) who said no and left Germany.

She surprised me because in person she doesn't give off a vibe of caring about fellow humanity.
The East Village has it's share of racists and I have quite a story about that.
