Women, Jews, African-Americans, now Latinos. Can we finally just agree that Mel Gibson is a serial, equal-opportunity bigot?
Mel Gibson is back on another racist rampage — and yet again, it’s apparently been caught on tape.
RadarOnline.com reports Mel called one of his staffers, who is of Latino descent, a “wetback” during an argument taped by Oksana Grigorieva, the mother of his 9-month-old daughter Lucia.
Here’s the exact quote: “I will report her to the f**king people that take f**king money from the wetbacks.”
Radar claims the quote refers to reporting the Latino worker to authorities, even though that’s not entirely clear from context.
In any case, “wetbacks” would enter the unfortunate pantheon of racist slurs that Mel has spewed — the ones he’s been caught spewing, in any case. There was the anti-Semitic rant he went on after being arrested for DUI in 2006, then the “sugart*ts” comment he made to a female officer, and most recently the N-word he dropped in an argument with Oksana, which she taped.
These tapes are all being used in Oksana’s battle with Mel over custody of their child.
