OK, so Mel Gibson's been in the news a lot lately, mostly for the tape that has been released of him chewing out his ex.

Hear it here. (If you are sensitive to hearing swearing or racial slurs, DO NOT listen. Fair warning):


Now, it seems people are much more pissed that he said the n-word than anything else said in the recording.

This is obviously not the first time Gibson's been in the news for racist comments. A few years back he went on an anti-Semitic rant after being pulled over, and now the the Young Turks are claiming he made a comment against Hispanics.


I don't know about the rest of you, but I actually found his rant where he went so far as to say, "If you get raped by a pack of *******, it's your fault!" to be probably the harshest statement of all, and not for the slur, but for implying that as a woman, if she is sexually assaulted, she deserved it. How utterly misogynistic. No one deserves rape.

Gibson is under investigation for domestic violence, as his ex had submitted the tape to police alleging that she felt her life was in danger.


Thoughts?


EDIT: stupid typos... ugh.

Yes, I would have to agree with you, Rogue. It's not that he used the word that bother me so much, but, indeed, the fact that he would not care if she was sexually assaulted by 'a pack' of people. I think people should care more about the fact that he is abusing his wife than the fact that he used the 'n' word. Sure, it is an offensive term, and I understand that, but that is not the problem at hand.

While some of his remarks were racist, I find it wrong that he would say these things to her, simply for the fact that she had implants. He had no problem with her before, it seems. But when he found this out, he completely over reacted and verbally assaulted her for no reason.

I am glad that he is under charges, because he deserves them. I do not know if he physically assaulted her, but either way, no one deserves this kind of treatment.

So far there's supposedly an audio recording of him saying she "fucking deserved it" after he hit her twice while she was holding their child.

Story about it

To be perfectly honest, the man fucking disgusts me and I hope he rots in jail for this. Abuse is not something that should be tolerated and definitely not treated as less important than him saying a racial slur. He was just being a dick to blacks, he was actively threatening his wife.

In my opinion, he probably drops the racial slurs to give things he says extra impact. "If you're raped by a pack of guys" isn't as shocking as throwing the n-word in there.

But still practically every article I've seen or been stuck hearing on the news simply reflects people's concern for the fact that he even said that word, rather than the content of his statement, which simply indicates to me the fact that sexism is more acceptable than racism.

Now what the hell is going on with the men who were considered the sexiest men in America during the '90s? Mel Gibson's become openly racist and apparently abusive. Tom Cruise is a relgious fanatic whom everyone has labeled batshit insane. David Hasselhoff is drunk all the time, video taped eating a hamburger off the floor. Alec Baldwin's verbally abusive to his daughter. People still won't shut up about Brad Pitt being unwashed, hauling kids around with Angelina Jolie while Jennifer Aniston plays victim over it all. Val Kilmer's overweight (not complaining, but the stupid tabloids are tainting the news with it). And Patrick Swayze is dead.

Honestly, Brad Pitt has managed to hang on to some dignity. Oh no, he has a family! How horrible.

I mean yeah, the whole divorce thing was kinda messed up but that happens to people all the time, and we don't know all the details. Besides, from what I have seen Aniston isn't acting like that much of a victim to me.

Val Kilmer fat, who cares? He can loose it easy. I just want to know where his acting career went. And I am sad that Swayze died... why the sane ones?

But yeah, Gibson, Cruise and the Hoff have no dignity at all anymore. It's really sad.

There are two sides to every story. Personally I think that the ex is just as guilty as the Mel Gibson for leaving. You're going to get that anger when people break apart abruptly.

I'm fairly certain his ex is not as guilty as him. No ones deserves that kind of anger for breaking up with someone, that's just immature and frankly disgusting.

Yeah, his ex is not guilty at all, in my eyes.
If you really consider not telling someone you have implants a crime, this world is worse than I thought. She didn't deserve that treatment, and while people do get angry over break ups, that was completely uncalled for. He stepped over the line.

The third and final tape has been posted on RadarOnline.com.

I'm somewhat dismayed by the headline it ran under: "EXCLUSIVE AUDIO: Another Mel Gibson Slur Caught On Tape In Crazed Rage"

While my boyfriend and I couldn't help but laugh at how ridiculous many of the things Mel said in the recordings were, at the time I'm sure Oksana was fearful of her life.

I guess it's funny now. It's on tape. He's pretty screwed.

A lot of this is already on the radio. I heard a few talk shows making fun of it this morning, and I couldn't help but chuckle.

While some of what he says is downright insane and could be taken with a smile, a lot of it would terrify her when it was being said. He was acting like a complete nutcase, and he needs to get treatment. I have no idea how that man interacts with people on a day to day basis.

And not only to beat a woman, but to do so while she is holding a child...I can't do anything but shake my head at that

This man needs help, obviously. But people also need to realize that the slurs are not what is important here. While it is wrong, domestic abuse is much worse. I can't believe that people are still considering what the man says to be more important than his actions. While racism should not be tolerated, neither should sexism and physical abuse. They all fall under the same category.

He goes like this.
Mel Gibson walks down the street, his hair waving in the wind. Then suddenly he walks by a group of people gender and race unspecified. *Middle finger raised alone* "I HATE YOU!!!!!! BUY ME A SANDWITCH!!!!!!! RIGHT NOW!!!!" They scurry off to buy a sandwitch.

Haha. I heard something along those lines on the radio. This whole situation is simply ridiculous. Gibson needs to grow up and go to therapy. I don't think I can say anymore without repeating myself, so I'm done. Lol.
