Raves, Rants and Lumps of Coal

I liken the release of each Mel Gibson tape to Christmas morning. The tabloids receive the defaming recordings with the same joy they exude while opening presents under a beautifully decorated tree. For the perpetrator, though, I imagine the release of the tapes is much like waking up to a lump of coal in your stocking. And Mel, you've been a naughty boy.

It's no secret that Mel Gibson is an anti-Semite, a racist and an all-around bad man. Sure, his ex-wife may have defended him, but have you heard the incriminating tapes? Directed to baby-mama Oksana Grigorieva, the tapes are frightening to listen to. Using profanities to make his point, Mel continuously screams at Oksana and continuously berates her for a variety of non-issues. I already hated the Passion of the Christ actor after his 2006 anti-Semitic rant, but by hatred has now escalated.

Some advice: if you lead a public life, you don't have the luxury of acting in this manner. Don't ever think a conversation is private, because it is not. Word will get out, tapes will be released and you will be the one picking up the pieces of your shattered image. Better luck keeping your trap closed next time, Mel.

  1. You think he would have learned his lesson the other times he got himself in hot water. I guess he has no ability or interest in reforming--or shutting his trap.
