In case you don’t already know, Mel Gibson is a terrible human being. Here’s some coverage from around the web that will hopefully convince you to never watch another of his films (at the very least, pledge not to watch them in theatres!).
So last week’s news about Mel Gibson’s horrifyingly offensive comments, to the mother of his child, who he is currently in a custody battle with, gave us a glimpse of just how sick and twisted he is. In response to the “way she dresses,” he said, “You look like a fucking pig in heat, and if you get raped by a pack of n***ers, it will be your fault.” As a friend said to me, if he had an assignment for finding the worst way to use the n-word, he wouldn’t be able to think that up.
As if that wasn’t bad enough, in another section of the tape, he admits to hitting Oksana Grigorieva as well claiming she “fucking deserved it.”
Mel Gibson is an abusive asshole and we shouldn’t support any of his movies. He has a history of violent, misogynist, anti-Semitic and racist behavior and that is good enough for me to never patronize a movie of his again. Not that I really watched them anyway.
From his anti-Semitic attacks during his 2006 DUI arrest, his homophobic and sexist remarks in interviews, to his racist films, Mel Gibson has long deserved the honor of the Douchebag Decree. The latest allegations against Mel Gibson, though, just might push this super-douche into the hall of shame.
Last week, Radaronline.com reported on audio they had obtained exclusively of fights and voicemails between Mel Gibson and his ex-girlfriend Oksana Grigorieva. The audio was laced with racist and sexist epithets, threats of rape and assault and justification for a previous violent attack. Radaronline.com’s source noted that Girgorieva recorded Gibson “to show Mel how mean he was, and because she feared for her life” and “She wanted to get evidence that he was dangerous and violent.” This time, his latest in his seemingly never-ending trail of douchery has landed him a police investigation into his “alleged” domestic violence.
