Mel Gibson Didnt Say Hollywood is an Institutionalized Pedophile Ring

In 2017 a network of hoax websites published a series of false claims that still get shared today. Actor Mel Gibson said Hollywood is an institutionalized pedophile ring. In April 2022 an old fake quote ostensibly uttered by actor Mel Gibson about how Hollywood is an institutionalized pedophile ring was recirculated on social media Mel Gibson fake quote Hollywood is an institutionalized pedophile ring.
This is not a genuine quote from Gibson.

The idea that Hollywood elites are engaged in a mass pedophile ring is one that has been pushed by conspiracy theorists for years. This claims which are baked into the Qanon conspiracy theory have falsely accused everyone from Tom Hanks to Oprah Winfrey of being involved in child sex trafficking. We looked into the origins of these rumors back in 2018 writing The current crop of pedophile ring rumors at least took root with what became known as Pizzagate. Promoters of that conspiracy theory in 2016 used social media platforms to make unfounded but viral allegations that Hillary Clinton and other prominent Democrats were running a pedophile ring out of the basement of a Washington D.C. pizzeria — even though that restaurant had no basement.

Since then the dark theme of Pizzagate has found new life with permutations forming part of the Qanon conspiracy theory incorporated under the umbrella term pedogate. The gist of the pedogate conspiracy theory is that global elites — politicians celebrities and wealthy businesspersons — are covertly involved in a farreaching ring that trafficks young children for sexual purposes. While these rumors often come in the form of accusations we have also seen several confessions similar to the fake Gibson post above in which Hollywood stars supposedly admit to having knowledge of these crimes. A quote from actor Brad Pitt about elite Hollywood pedophiles controling America originated with a network of hoax websites as did similar fake quotes from Justin Bieber and Katy Perry.

These hoax websites were also responsible for spreading the fake Gibson quote above. On Nov. 30 2017 News punch.com a website notorious for spreading sensational and entirely fabricated stories published a story claiming that Gibson made these remarks on The Graham Norton Show. While Gibson has appeared on Nortons show he never made these remarks. A spokesperson for Gibson told Reuters that this quote was 100% fake. Fact checkers at AFP Check Your Fact and Lead Stories all came to the same conclusion. This is not a genuine quote from Gibson.
