Oliver Stone is in hot water again. Not for his politics this time, but for anti-Semitic remarks he made to the Sunday Times in the UK, according to The Hollywood Reporter.

When asked in a Sunday Times of London interview why there was "such a focus on the Holocaust," Stone replied: "The Jewish domination of the media." He added: "They stay on top of every comment, the most powerful lobby in Washington. Israel has f***** up United States foreign policy for years." Oliver Stone is in hot water again.

The Anti-Defamation League on Monday harshly criticized Stone's comments, saying: "Oliver Stone has once again shown his conspiratorial colors with his comments about 'Jewish domination of the media' and control over U.S. foreign policy. His words conjure up some of the most stereotypical and conspiratorial notions of undue Jewish power and influence."

Stone issued an apology Monday afternoon. "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," Stone said in a statement.
