And doesn’t that happen just about every time that Mel Gibson opens his mouth? This time, the rant that Mel went on not only offended African Americans, but women too. This guy’s such an idiot and I can’t believe that anyone in this day and age still has these kinds of views.
The rant comes apparently from ex-girlfriend’s, and baby mama, Oksana Grigorieva’s answering machine. Reportedly, th two had an argument and Mel called, irate, and left stupid racial slur, insults, and threats on Oksana’s voicemail. Because he doesn’t only want to be an ass, he wants there to be hard-hitting proof that he’s an ass. Seriously, why would any actor, especially one that’s been in the biz as long as Mel Gibson, leave any kind of proof that he really is this shameful excuse of a human being. The original report came from Radar Online, and this comes from Guardian,
“The Hollywood actor and director Mel Gibson is facing renewed criticism from African American leaders after he is alleged to have launched a racist and misogynist rant against his former partner.
The Los Angeles section of America’s largest anti-racist group, the NAACP, denounced Gibson for comments which were reported by the online gossip website Radar Online.
Leon Jinkins, president of the group in LA, told the TMZ website that an apology was not enough. “No amount of words will change his image as an out-of-date and out-of-control racist,” he said. And Jesse Jackson, the black political figurehead, also waded into the controversy, saying Gibson “needs help”.
Gibson himself has so far given no reaction to the report of his alleged diatribe. Radar Online said it had heard a 30-minute recording left on the voicemail of Oksana Grigorieva, Gibson’s former partner, with whom he has an eight-month-old child. During the message, according to the site, the film star makes bizarre threats against her and breaks several verbal taboos.
No other media outlet has yet been able to hear the tape, or confirm its authenticity. It is understood that the recording has been lodged with an LA court as part of a highly acrimonious custody dispute over access to the couple’s child.
The most incendiary comment involves a description of Grigorieva given over the phone. “You look like a fucking pig in heat, and if you get raped by a pack of niggers, it will be your fault.” Radar alleges that Gibson threatened: “I am going to come and burn the fucking house down.”
The acrimonious custody dispute between Gibson and Grigorieva saw lawyers for both parties in court in LA this week attempting to impose restraining orders on each other. Grigorieva’s team managed to prevent Gibson coming near her and their daughter Lucia. She said that he punched her in the face twice and knocked out two of her teeth.
Gibson’s lawyers countered by persuading the court to award him renewed access to the child. He also pressed to stop Grigorieva from disclosing certain information to the media, that is believed to include the voicemail tape. Grigorieva is trying to prove that Gibson is dangerous and should be kept away from the girl. The judge has warned both parties to keep all details of the proceedings private.”
When Mel and Oksana first broke up, it appeared to be an amicable split. But Oksana also promised us that there were “things that were going to come out,” and I guess now we’re seeing just a few of those things. I have no doubt that if the tapes are ever publicly released, that there will be full confirment that it is in fact Mel on those tapes, and that he’s saying exactly what everyone is saying he said. What an idiot!
