Mel Gibson, no stranger to public meltdowns, has recently come under fire (again). Screenwriter Joe Eszterhas’ private letter to Gibson, which accused the actor of “hating Jews,” hit the Internet and the media went wild. Gibson denied the claims, prompting Eszterhas to release a tape, recorded by his 15-year-old son, of Mel screaming racist and sexist expletives in a maniacal voice during a dinner in Costa Rica. Mel was heard blasting the writer for failing to produce a script, "Why don't I have a first draft of 'The Maccabees?' What the [expletive] have you been doing?" He then turned his attention to his ex Oksana Grigorieva, screaming "I am earning money for a filthy little [expletive] who takes advantage of me."
This isn’t the first time Mel has been caught freaking out about Grigorieva. Following their 2010 split, volatile telephone recordings between the two were released. The recordings, which were used against the movie star during a custody battle, feature Gibson screaming racist, sexist, and other horrible things.
And don’t forget Mel’s 2006 DUI arrest. Police reported that Gibson was irate, screaming anti-semitic and sexist remarks at the officers. —XFINITY Entertainment Staff
