Mel Gibson

First the corrupt Jews, then "sugar tits"...now gang rape by "niggers."

I grew up watching Mel Gibson movies. The Lethal Weapon and Mad Max movies appealed to the "guy" in me. Action, suspense, sex, explosions...you know, guy shit. Fun stuff! And I'd see him in interviews and stuff and he always looked like a funny, fun-loving guy with a great sense of humor that people genuinely seemed to love.

Then, there came the story of his DUI stop, and his belligerent and disrespectful rantings at the cops who stopped and arrested him. We've all heard the story about his slanderous remarks about Jews, his ignorant "I pay your salaries" comments to the officers, and his misogynistic "sugar tits" comment to one of the female officers. I don't know about you, but that was a little surprising to me. This coming from the guy who made "Passion of the Christ", the true testament to his faith-- financed with his own money, even. But he blamed the bottle, went to therapy, and worked on reviving his career. And he wasn't really succeeding at that--  his last film, Edge of Darkness, came and went without any fan-fare whatsoever.

And now...we find out that there has been a lot of trouble with his current girlfriend Oksana Grigorieva, and the mother of his new child. There have been stories that she claims that he was abusive-- he had apparently punched her in the face, breaking her tooth (or teeth, not sure). She filed a restraining order against him, for her own safety. And then, the phone calls...which she recorded for proof that he was a crazy, raging nut-case.

Apparently, she captured one of his rants on an audio tape. And what did he allegedly say:
"You're an embarrassment to me. You look like a f***ing pig in heat, and if you get raped by a pack of n***ers, it will be your fault."
"How dare you act like such a bitch when I have been so f**king nice."
"I am going to come and burn the f**king house down... but you will blow me first."

I'll get to the "niggers" and rape comments in a moment-- what baffles me is the blow job that she is supposed to give him before he burns the house down. Now look, we've all been angry and have had our share of fits, and said some stupid and even crazy things. I don't get the nob-job/arson thing. Maybe this statement, more than the others, proves that he truly is insane.

I can only imagine what Danny Glover might be thinking upon hearing about this. I mean look-- I'm not surprised at the racism and the misogyny, but to say these things to the mother of your child...I am speechless. I think a lot of people will just say things like "Mel Gibson needs help", or "He just needs anger management". But he's already had these things after his first public incident. I don't think there's any amount of "help" that will do anything for Mel Gibson. His career was in trouble before...and now, I believe it's over.

I have been angry with people in the past-- friends, girlfriends, ex-girlfriends, strangers on the street, etc. But when you say to someone-- to someone you've been intimate with, and have a child with, that you wouldn't blame a gang of "nigger" for raping them...not only is that beyond over-the-top...it's just fucking disgusting. Now, this alleged tape is supposedly under lock-and-key, and has not been released...yet. This tape will get leaked. And we will all hear it. We have our opinions at this point, but what will we think when we hear these words come out of his mouth? What will we think when people take the Braveheart speech and over-dub this rant over it, and put it up on YouTube? That may honestly be the only work that this man will get for a very long time, if at all.

Oh well. Celebrities acting like idiots is nothing new. But this...well, I guess I'll always have Road Warrior...and Signs-- I liked that movie too. And the first two Lethal Weapons. Never saw Passion of the Christ or Braveheart. And don't want to. To support this prick is not in anyone's best interest.

UPDATE: Here's the audio.
