Another day and another racial and abusive tirade from Mel Gibson. In case you are keeping score at home, today's tape is the one where he calls someone a wetback who works for Oksana and he also spends some time verbally abusing Oksana. Actually a great deal of time. Oh, he also mentions he is having financial problems. Well, they will only get worse after all of this. I see no income in his future and that Beaver movie was shelved.

Meanwhile, Mel has finally started to get some support and it has come from a very unlikely source. Yesterday on The View Whoopi said that Mel Gibson is a friend of hers and that he is not a racist. She said he has a drinking problem and that people who drink say things they don't mean. I was shocked. This is not just some drunken rant, this is day after day of this abusive behavior. As many of you have said, can you imagine what his wife went through for 30 years? What about his kids? Whoopi says she is not defending him, but she is. She is making excuses for his behavior. There are none.
Taking advantage of the Whoopi positives, Mel's people rushed out a story to Kneepads where they said that Mel tried to go to therapy for his problems to deal with this unhealthy relationship and get this, they blame Oksana. “He realized how unhealthy the relationship was and recognized that they were in a bad place and he was getting his buttons pushed.”
Seriously? Did they just blame her? They did. Wait, it gets way worse. Do you want to know why Oksana got punched in the face? “the actor only tried to stop [Oskana] from shaking their baby like a ragdoll.”
In my headline I said that People have taken Mel's side. They have. They did not need to print this garbage. It is not about being balanced. It is about giving an excuse to a guy who beat a woman with a child in her arms. You cannot defend that and People should know better. They do a lot of sucking up. Tons of it. Their whole offices must be a deep shade of brown. That being said, why would you even bother to suck up to this guy? An exclusive? Some kind of payback when he makes Lethal Weapon 6 or something? It is not going to happen. His career is over. For once People should take the right side and not the celebrity side. They even used a happy picture of the couple.
