Tom Cruise's lawyers compare Jewish and gay journalists to cotton-picking slaves

Washington, Nov 15 : Tom Cruise's legal team has compared Jewish and gay journalists to cotton-picking slaves working on a plantation.

The statement was made following a deposition by the Editor-in-Chief of In Touch and Life and Style, Dan Wakeford, who had said that claims by the 51-year-old actor that Bauer has an anti-Semitic and Nazist corporate culture were ludicrous as several staff members were Jewish and/or gay.

Cruise's attorneys responded to his position by likening it to a plantation owner claiming that he was not racist even though everyone picking his cotton was black, Radar Online reported.

Lawyers for the German-based publisher cited the quote in a November 12 filing as an alleged example of 'Top Gun' star's inability to perceive any boundaries to logic or taste.
