Skip to comments.Mel Gibson caught using racist, sexist slurs on tape, reports say
Posted on 07/02/2010 8:02:02 AM PDT by pissant
In an audio tape apparently recorded by the mother of his infant daughter, Mel Gibson is heard using racist and misogynistic language, reportedly calling ex-girlfriend Oksana Grigorieva an embarrassment and telling her, You look like a fking pig in heat, and if you get raped by a pack of ners, it will be your fault.
The tape's contents were first reported by RadarOnline, which also claimed to have heard it. According to the site, Grigorieva made the recordings "during a series of explosive arguments" between the couple, who split in April and who are currently in a financially tinged custody battle involving their 8-month-old daughter, Lucia. Records in the case are sealed -- at least, they're supposed to be.

_take _a _pill.
Put a fork in him... he’s done.
Watch how fast State Media tries to tie Mel to the TEA Party.
He was ‘done’ for me when he made that third, unwatchable Mad Max movie.
I’m starting to think that perhaps one should be able to counter sue someone who publicizes something they recorded that was said in private. This is getting crazy. Where do we draw the line?
Why is this insipid bullshit of interest to anyone?
Not sure. But thanks for taking enough interest to comment.
Braveheart and The Patriot were pretty good movies.
Who does he think he is? A senator from West Virginia?
I bet Mel didn’t say anything any more racist than Obama’s “minister” says every Sunday in his “church”.
I am interested to know why you are interested.
Actually, I am far more concerned with him being so stupid as to have an affair with this woman (with a history of taking men) than I am about some rant said in public. A shame how this highly talented man has made a mess of his private life.
My interest is solely to piss people off who pretend they have no interest.
There is always Nick Nolte...
Maybe he’s emulating Martin Luther King-his FBI tapes (ordered by Jack and Bobby Kennedy) are currently sealed for several more years for the same reason.....
MSM liberals are looking over every TEA Party leader with a fine toothed comb...
And, like you're saying TexasCajun, they'll try to tie anyone unpopular to the movement. Liberals : SS thugs of our time...
Now Obama, the boy child, can do and say whatever he wants as he destroys our country.
What happened to his face?
He also looks cross eyed.
Well, one thing for sure is that Mel Gibson is naive, clueless, drunk, or drugged out.
Doesn’t he know how famous he is & that this woman might record him?
He should have stayed with his wife who put up with his rants & didn’t record it.
Time hasn’t been kind to poor Nick either, lol. Still, back in the day, he was a hunk!
Good Lord! Is that Glen Campbell? When was that taken?
I hope he didn’t really say some of those things. Maybe it’s really just another tape of Alec Baldwin talking to his daughter. ;^)
How did Nicks eyes get so close together? Photoshop? Or some hideous disease?
I do agree he’s become (or maybe always was) an idiot. I suspect years of substance abuse. His wife probably held him together as long as she could. And he is very talented, combined with rugged good looks, a winning combo. But this business of recording private moments and then using them to ruin people is just crazy. We all say things, that if recorded would look very bad. It says as much about the recorder as about the recorded.
This is a big story.
We are watching the self-destruction of a Hollywood superstar Christian family man,who was married for 30 years, with 8 children.
The next story will be about rehab.
Agree 100%. Private moments should be private. Sort of reminds me of the old Soviet Russia where family members were told to spy on the others.
Do you have an opinion as to that which may have precipitated the transformation?
..but don't you think Mel is not the exception in Hollywoodland when it comes to graphic language, sick ideas and shenanigans.
I bet most of the directors, actors, producers....yes, even little Opie.... can curse worse than a sailor (all due respect to sailors)...
..and have gone through women (as objects) like kleenex!
You know, you’re right. I hadn’t thought of that, but that may be why it bothers me so. And people have no honor. It’s all about what others can do for them, or what they can squeeze out of someone even if it means destroying that person.
The idyllic life is taken away, usually by a villainous army that destroys his family. Of course, in the movies, that idyllic life is pretty boring. Anyone watching the movies goes, "Yeah, yeah. Let the English guy kill his wife and he can get to kicking some @ss." It's obvious Braveheart was having a lot more fun beheading Englishmen and sacking villages than he would have had living in mud and herding pigs. The character NEEDED the atrocity to become self-fulfilled and provide a reason for the serious Englishman beheading that was to follow, but even if the atrocity hadn't occurred, he would have rather been out there with half his face painted blue, acting crazy.
I think these movies are a depiction of Gibson's inner mental state. Less than ten years ago, Gibson was noted as being a devout and strict Catholic. He commented on occasion about his early years in Hollywood and the depravity of his conduct, then. He flipped from being the wild playboy to being the super devout Catholic. Still, he wrestled with his inner demons, and finally, it looks like the demons have won out. Without a physical enemy to commit the atrocities and for him to vent his frustrations on, he mentally broke on his own, and the wife and then his girlfriend were the recipients of the rage, instead of Longshanks.
Yeah, I’m with you on this. Just replace Glenn with Mel’s picture and I am THERE!
Of course like the other poster, I am just sad that he was fool enough to do the typical ‘run off with the younger woman’.
That picture is SO photoshopped. LOL
Of course they didn’t have to do much to it.
We do not draw the line anywhere--we treasure our 1st Amendment rights while we still have them.
“Sort of reminds me of the old Soviet Russia where family members were told to spy on the others.”
Kind of an ironic statement considering this whore he left his wife for is Russian.
You know, as much money as this chick is set to get from having custody of their daughter, how hard would it be to get an audio together of him saying something like this? Just curious. I mean he has said so much stuff on film and hey, he may be a drunken racist (ok, he has issues with jews apparently and obviously drinks to excess) but I also have become skeptical lately when there is a ton of money involved.
Of course he could have avoided this altogether if he kept his vows to his wife...
You clicked on it too. We knew it wasn’t about the budget.
That woman is supposed to be FORTY YEARS OLD? I see why he called her synthetic. Wow.
First ammendment right to invade privacy and broadcast what someone says in private to the world? Yeah.....right....
It is possible you are right, but it is also likely that those are typical themes for good movies. I am loathe to psychoanaylse someone I’ve never met.
YOu’re right of course. He got himself into this pickle.
Invade privacy? If the person is repeating what is said to them, they have not "invaded privacy". Betrayed a trust, maybe--but you cannot lock up (or pillage the belongings of) anyone who betrays a trust.
As soon as you start distinguishing between "acceptable" speech and "not covered" speech, you have already tossed out the 1st amendment--the only question left is how strict a censor you are.
You can call Oksana Grigorieva a lot of things, but a pig isn’t one of them.
Recording someone? I think you are mistaken about what free speech is.
