Letter from Steven Spielberg to Mel Gibson?-Fiction!

Letter from Steven Spielberg to Mel Gibson-Fiction!


Summary of eRumor:

An open letter to Mel Gibson said to be from Steven Spielberg.  It is a follow-up to Mel Gibson’s much publicized arrest for driving under the influence of alcohol in California on July 28, 2006, and event that Los Angeles County Sheriff’s deputies say also included anti-Semitic comments by Gibson.

The Truth:

There is no evidence that this letter was written by Steven Spielberg.

Most of the places where the letter appears on the web attribute it to someone named Steven Silberberg, not Steven Spielberg.  Also, the writer of the article claims to be from New Rochelle, New York, and there is no record of Steven Spielberg living there.  He does have homes on Long Island, New York, and in California.
