No Gibson for Me

By on 8.2.06 | 12:08PM

It may have been easier for me to overlook the anti-Semitic comments Mel Gibson made in his recent drunken tirade had this been an isolated incident, but given that it has been a part of a pattern for him, most glaringly with his failure to distance himself from his father’s hateful comments several years ago, it’s much harder for me to dismiss. Do I claim, based on his drunken antics, to know what Gibson really feels in his heart and soul? No. However, there is enough out there to make me uncomfortable with the idea of helping to further line Gibson’s pockets with money. I’m not going to get too gassed up about the matter, because Gibson is a

Hollywood actor whose words don’t have much of an impact on my life. But I don’t plan on seeing any Gibson films in the future.
