Ever since his El Pais interview in 1991—which led to him awkwardly addressing nine gay filmmakers (including Bob King, Rob Tate, Ted Sod, Lauran Hoffman, Nicole Conn and Cheryl Dunye) as some kind of pseudopenance—it's been clear Mel Gibson is a raging homophobe. Now, of course, we also all know what a raging anti-Semite, racist, misogynist and all-around lunatic he is.
All the more reason I'm happy that Jodie Foster stupidly decided to stick with her buddy Mel (they made a bad movie called Mavericks together and became pals—imagine what he says about her behind her back) and direct him in her big new movie The Beaver (the jokes write themselves) that now will be impossible to market.
Fuck them both. And fuck you, too, Whoopi Goldberg—I have lost a lot of respect for you in your lame, illogical, biased defense of Gibson. People don't get drunk and spew anti-Semitism unless they're anti-Semitic. And people who aren't drunk, but who tell their GFs they'll get raped "by a pack of niggers", are racist. Period:
Good grief, the rich and famous will stick up for each other over anything!
