Mel Gibson claims that his rights were seriously violated when he came across a bad critical review of his movie The Passion of the Christ. He claims that as a consequence, he fell off the wagon (of sobriety), was found driving his car in a drunken state on July 28 and arrested by the police for drunken driving. While reporting to Diane Sawyer of Good Morning America, Gibson said that he was angry about being accused for his 2004 movie featuring anti-Semitic imagery. He says that his movie Passion..., released a few years ago, was also blamed by the public for displaying unnecessary violence, without even a frame from the movie being watched by these same persons. Gibson feels that when the movie came to the theatres, these allegations were found baseless, yet he did not receive even a single apology from anyone. Gibson says that his rights were violated in many ways as a Christian, as an artist and also as a human being.
