Mel Gibson :(

I have always been a big fan of Mel Gibson. I sincerely hope that he is not prejudiced or cruel to women. I just don't know what to think. His relationship with Danny Glover makes me think it's not true. I know people use slurs towards others when they are angy, slurs they don't mean. I'm hoping that's the case.

Whoopi Goldberg is a friend of Gibson, and says it's absolutely untrue, that he is definitely not a racist. I think she should know.

I don't know what to make of these accusations, but it saddens me.

I'm on Mel's side. The more that's coming out about his octomom-lookalike skanky ex, the more I feel he was set up. We've all said horrible things in the heat of an argument. I personally am glad I was never recorded in those moments. The last straw for me was the tooth thing. Even her dentist says it couldn't have happened like she said, she was NOT hit in the mouth, that's not how her teeth were broken.

I think it's likely that both of them are somewhat to blame for the situation. On the one hand it does seem suspicious that his ex just keeps tossing out new recordings; however, the things he says on them are horrific even if they are in the heat of the moment. My father gets like that, verbally abusive when he's angry and my mother usually just takes it, exactly like Mel's ex. Not something you want to hear, trust me

He's an anti-semite. I have no sympathy.

Yep. He has shown himself to be an unpleasant individual in the past. He gets no sympathy from me.

I used to like Mel, but part of that included admiration for his long marriage in an industry where that wasn't common.
I don't like the ugly side that is coming out, but i also think she is a major *****. i am not fond of women who chase married men anymore than i like married people who cheat on their spouses.
I think she is releasing the tapes.

I dont know when he was married but I do know he had a secret fling with a chick called Jannike Björling, ex girlfriend of Björn Borg at a nightclub in stockholm around 1999-2000

Edit: he was married at the time according to wiki

Not one ounce of sympathy from me. Even if you consider her a golddigging manipulator, there's just no excuse for the venom that came out of him. Well, the excuse is being drunk most likely, which doesn't exactly make him sympathetic either. I think he's really troubled and I hope this woman walks away with a big chunk of his money.

Marie -- "octomom-looking" is exactly right! I was trying to figure out who she looked like.

Such usually seems to be the case when a superstar "falls from grace" and loses their popularity. And when a person gets snockered, their lips do tend to be loose and they spout off about things they generally tend to keep to themselves such as his anti-semitic remarks. His last movie, Edge Of Darkness, was just plain bad. It did not do the original any justice and the late Bob Peck is probably doing twisting backflips in his grave. So I guess it is finally hitting home to Mel Gibson that he is a has-been. But regardless, that will never excuse his behavior at all.
