Oliver Stone Apologizes for “Jews In the Media” Comments

July 27, 2010

(ChattahBox) – Oliver Stone has apologized for a series of comments he made to the British Times, after being accused to being racist and anti-Semitic.

In the interview, Stone said several things that were taken badly, and some that came off as an unfair strike-out against the Jews, such as his claim that the Jewish people have dominated the media and “f***ked up United States foreign policy”.

He also said that Hitler should be taken in the proper context, and that he is only as prominent in history because Jews have the highest positions in media, and so push the issue.

Stone also said that Iranian President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad is misunderstood, and that while he isn’t one of the “good guys”, we don’t understand the whole story.

He later released a statement through Rubenstein Communications, apologizing for the remarks, the Jerusalem Post reports.

“In trying to make a broader historical point about the range of atrocities the Germans committed against many people, I made a clumsy association about the Holocaust, for which I am sorry and I regret.”
