Not so Shocking but still Appalling: Mel Gibson is a racist, anti-semitic, misogynist who hits women

Well, Braveheart is completely and irrevocably ruined for me.

[Trigger warning for sexual violence, incredibly offense language, and full-on racism]

According to Radar Online, Mel Gibson’s girlfriend and mother of his youngest child, Oksana Grigorieva, recorded arguments between herself and Gibson “after he made a series of death threats against her”:

On tape, a teary Oksana is heard asking Mel, “What kind of a man is that who would hit a woman when she is holding a child in her hands, hitting her twice in the face?

“What kind of a man is that?” the Russian musician repeats.

The Braveheart star responds: “You know what — you f**cking deserved it.” […]

Mel’s sickening “you f**cking deserved it” admission sheds new light on the he-said, she-said battle that has been raging between Oksana and Mel for the past several weeks.

His legal team has insisted Mel did not hit Oksana and that they had only a loud argument. The disputed event apparently took place January 6 in his Malibu mansion.

But sources close to Oksana claimed she was left bloodied and bruised and had her two front teeth knocked out during the violent confrontation. […]

“You look like a f**cking pig in heat,” Mel spewed in the recording.

“If you get raped by a pack of n****rs, it will be your fault.”

Radar’s previous post about this tape included these other nuggets of hate, threat, and general asshole-ness:

On the recordings , Mel told Oksana he would burn down her home, but not until after she performed oral sex on him. On tape, he says: “I am going to come and burn the f**king house down… but you will blow me first.”

“You’re an embarrassment to me,” Mel says at one point.

The Guardian asks, “Could Mel Gibson’s latest controversy end his career?”  One can only hope the answer is an unequivocal “yes.”  Well, at least it should.  Maybe that should be the question, really.  “Should his career be over?”

If Tom Cruise’s couch jumping and condescending weirdness about post-partum depression remedies have affected his Hollywood cred, one would hope that this would tank Gibson’s.  But then, who knows?  He could just be Charlie Sheen 2.0.
