Enough Mel Gibson Rants Already!
One editor’s plea to make future news of the angry racist go away.
I’ll admit it — when the audio of Mel Gibson screaming irately at his girlfriend Oksana Grigorieva was first released, I listened with horrified intrigue along with the rest of the world. This was the man who played Hamlet, the man who made women swoon and men want to go to battle and fight for their families like he did in Braveheart.
Alas, those days have long since fizzled from most of our minds as the real Mel Gibson slowly but surely comes to light.
The latest news from RadarOnline.com’s explosive coverage is that a furious Mel said, “I want Jew blood on my hands.” And suddenly, I knew I had heard enough. Every morning I endure a side of superfluous hate with my coffee and it has become ridiculous. There’s so much real hatred and war in the world that goes completely unnoticed—and we are all listening to this schmuck?
I would like nothing more than for all the releases of any further audio that may be in existence to be stopped. Does the public really need to hear more? What will it yield—besides some raunchy Mel Gibson jokes? Now don’t get me wrong, I’ve come up with a few zingers myself about the psychotic Mel.
If I give you one, will you try to stop listening to his rants and move on to read about something, ANYTHING else?
Okay, if Mel really wants Jew blood on his hands he can attend a Weinstein (there’s enough of them in Hollywood) Bris and ask to hold the baby during the snippage. Laughs all around now we’re done.
I know I’ve mocked the human race for our obsession with Lindsay Lohan in the past, but I’ll take the little jailbird over one more piece of news regarding Mel any day.
