New Racist Rant From Gibson
Mel Gibson’s career is going Apocalypto as another tape of him allegedly using racist language has surfaced online. The latest recording sees Gibson argue over a woman that cleans their home, before launching into a racist rant at the Hispanic housekeeper he and ex-girlfriend Oksana Grigorieva employ.
“I will fire [the cleaning lady] if she’s at your house. I will make it known and fire her. I’ll report her to the f***ing people that take f***ing money from the wetbacks, OK?” The term ‘wetback’ is a racial slur and slang term for illegal immigrants who swim across the Rio Grande river, part of the border between Mexico and the United States. It is unclear whether Gibson was threatening to call immigration authorities or people who blackmail immigrants.
He also accused the mother of his eight-month-old daughter of cheating on him: “You’re a f***ing mentally deprived idiot. You’re a f***ing using whore I own you.” Whoopi Goldberg yesterday spoke out in defence of Gibson on TV show The View (the American equivalent of Loose Women): “I don’t like what he did here but I know Mel, and I know he’s not racist.”
