Mel Gibson also hates John Lennon -- according to Joe Esterhazy, the screenwriter whom Mel hired -- then fired -- to work on his latest movie (about the Jewish Maccabees).

In the snippet you provided, Mel doesn't mention John Lennon.

Mel is quoted as saying "I will say that the great majority of the facts as well as the statements and  actions attributed to me in your letter are utter fabrications." which would cover the John comments. Now the key words are "great majority" so its left up in the air as to what parts fall into the small minority of being true.

All i am saying is the guy who got fired by his boss has made a statement saying his boss made certain rants of which the boss denies most of (the statement doesnt go into details) - its a question of who do you believe. It happens all the time with disgruntled staff where some are true and some are not, those who are famous get more attention over what was said to have happened. I wasnt there so air on the side of 'dont know, dont care, move on'.

I don't believe Esterhazy bothered to mention, in his letter, Mel's alleged statement about Lennon.  It would be silly to mention that, as it has no bearing on his (Esterhazy's) claim of being cheated in his contract and of Mel abusing his (Esterhazy's) 15-year-old son with grotesque statements about how he (Mel) wanted to "fuck his (Mel's) ex-gf in the ass while stabbing her to death" -- something you don't tell a 15-year-old boy.

Anyway, what I know is that Esterhazy mentioned the Lennon allegation (among many other lurid weird shit about Mel) in an interview with Howard Stern.  To my ears, Esterhazy in that interview sounded quite grounded and rational.

From the NY Daily News website, dated 12 April 2012, under the headline, "Mel Gibson thinks John Lennon deserved to be shot, says 'Maccabees' screenwriter Joe Eszterhas":

     In an angry nine-page letter addressed to the hot-tempered actor, which was obtained by TheWrap, Eszterhas alleges Gibson once said he thought Beatles legend John Lennon deserved to die.

     "I'm glad he's dead. He deserved to be shot. He was a f--king messianic," Gibson allegedly ranted about the musician. "Listen to his songs! 'Imagine.' I hate that f--king song. I'm glad he's dead."

Hope this helps.
