It’s shocking to me that the world is OBSESSED with Mel’s career!
Is Mel Gibson toast in Hollywood, now that his outrageous rants against his former lover have been outed?
He threatened to “bury her in the rose garden,” hit her with a baseball bat on the side of the head, “burn the f***king house down,” he called her a “whore,” “prostitute” and “c**t” repeatedly, told her she was an “idiot,” “worthless,” that she “deserved” to have had her teeth knocked out,” that she looked “like a f**cking pig in heat.” He even screamed at her that “if you get raped by a pack of n*****s, it will be your fault!”
The viciousness of the verbal abuse is beyond disgusting and should offend ANY person — male or female ,who is NOT a misogynist themselves.
So then why is there utter silence from women’s groups, the Anti-Defamation League, even the White House? Hey, President Obama had a few words to say about Tiger Woods, why not about a national celebrity who’s insulted African Americans, Latinos, Jews and WOMEN?
Why has Mel not been called out for domestic abuse? Chris Brown was. Is it because Oksana made the mistake of NOT going to the police after Mel knocked out her two front teeth? Instead she went to her dentist and begged him not to report her injury to the authorities, EVEN though it was his medical duty to do so.
Now before you condemn Oksana for NOT going to the police immediately, remember that Rihanna didn’t want to press charges against Chris Brown either. It’s a typical reaction from a woman who’s been abused — their lover makes them feel so worthless that they actually believe the abuse is their fault!
Now Oksana is being scrutinized and criticized because she taped Mel’s calls and clearly had professional help in doing so.
But honestly, whatever her motives — self-protection or a settlement — it doesn’t lessen the fact that Mel is panting that she’s a “psycho c**t,” and that she needs a “f***king brain transplant!” etc., etc.
He’s a batterer! And domestic abuse experts agree! “Threatening to hurt her, kill her, demanding sex that he’s ‘entitled’ to, making derogatory remarks about her body, saying she doesn’t have any friends in order to isolate her — these are all typical of the kinds of things that abusers say, and Mel says them,” points out Susan Cayouette, co-director of Emerge, a counseling program for abusers, in Cambridge, Mass.
“It’s classic of abusers to call the woman a whore or prostitute, because it’s part of trying to bring the woman down. It’s attacking their self-esteem,” points out Nathalie Favre-Lilly, co-executive director of Casa Myrna Vasquez, a program in Boston for battered young women, to which Mel actually made a $25,000 donation in September 2008.
Judge Jeanine Pirro, star of the syndicated legal show of the same name, is unmincing in her words (see clip below): “This guy is a batterer — he is a psychological, emotional and financial abuser,” and she believes Oksana made the recordings because she’s “trying to get evidence of crime!” Well thank you Jeanine for saying it like it is!
Now, where are the other voices willing to say it in plain old English — Mel Gibson may be a movie star but so what — HE’S A BATTERER! And he deserves to be shunned and punished with the full force of the law!
