Plus: Columnist wants doctors to refuse to treat Gary Busey
The Doctor is Out
Gary Busey might want to think twice before seeking the services of a Jewish doctor.
The often-troubled actor is starring as a Jewish doctor in a Turkish film some are calling anti-Semitic, and one columnist is urging a boycott of Busey.
“Valley of the Wolves – Iraq” reportedly depicts the slaughter of Turks by U.S. troops and, according to the Associated Press, “vilifies the United States.” Busey plays a Jewish-American doctor in the Abu Ghraib prison who cuts out prisoners’ organs and sells them to wealthy folks in New York, London and Tel Aviv.
Columnist Debbie Schlussel, writing for Front Page Magazine, is calling for a boycott of both Busey and his co-star Billy Zane, and fumes: “We have a suggestion for all Jewish-American doctors: Since Gary Busey defamed you, refuse him as a patient.”
