After the murder of George Floyd, which led to massive protests against racism in the US, stars started to share memories about how they themselves had experienced discrimination in one form or another. So, in a new interview with The Sunday Times Winona Ryder remembered how at a party in 1996, Mel Gibson cracked a joke to her Jewish origin.
“You’re not one of those who escaped from the oven, right?” — asked the actor.
At the same party Gibson did not miss the opportunity to comment on the orientation of the other Actresses Kevin Aucoin, who was openly gay. Talking to the man, he suddenly said, “Wait, am I infected with AIDS?”
The actor himself has denied all charges, claiming that Ryder is lying, and not for the first time. According to the official representative of the actor, many years ago, he tried to talk to Winona about why she is spreading false information in the press, but she refused.
