Mel Gibson was being interviewed by WGN’s
Dean Richards when the reporter asked him if the public would accept him after Mel’s famous drunken anti-Semitic rant. Mel didn’t like that comment and is like I did all these mea culpas and tell the reporter to move on because it has been four years. So the reporter does so by plugging the movie and Mel signs off by saying, “bye bye”. Thinking that the camera was off and the station was no longer on him the Mad Max star adds the word’ “asshole.” Great mea culpa there Mel. Good thing the reporter wasn’t a female or he might’ve called her sugar t!ts on the air.
I don’t blame Dean Richards for him asking the question, Mel hasn’t been in front of the camera since the incident and it is a fair question. 10 years from now they will still be asking him the question, same way they will still ask Christian Bale about his rant and Hugh Grant about his backseat blow job. If you can’t handle the press then don’t do it Mel, I know I won’t miss you and your balding head if you went away.
Do you think the Edge of Darkness star went over the edge by calling the WGN reporter an a$$hole?
