According to fashion policer Joan Rivers, clothing might have something to do with Mel Gibson’s dislike of Jewish people. Rivers recalls a red carpet event where she was talking to Gibson while wearing a navy dress with pink ruffles on top (pictured). The dress, admittedly a sartorial misstep, might have scarred Gibson so deeply that it caused him to hate Rivers and, subsequently, all Jewish people. “It’s because of the dress!” Rivers told E! Online. “The navy and pink ruffle dress turned Mel Gibson into a Jew-hater!”

You know, it’s as good a theory as any other I’ve heard for why Mel Gibson is a big ol’ anti-Semite.
