We haven’t really been covering the Mel Gibson audiotapes that have been leaking every day, and I’m not sure why because they are AWESOME. Awesomely scary, awesomely revealing and you know, kind of awesomely hilarious on a very superficial level.
Today tape number five was released and while there’s no, “I’m going to burn the house down, but first you’re going to blow me”, it’s full of seriously degrading and insane soundbites just like the rest of them. Here’s a taste if you can’t click on the video above (which I unfortunately had to embed from the worst site ever. I apologize.):
“F*ckin’ user! You f*ckin’ used me! I will never forgive you!”
“Yeah, you know what mean is now, don’t you? So don’t call me mean when I’m nice to you. Because I’d like to show you what mean really is. B*tch, c*nt, wh*re, gold digger! All true! You f*cking proved it to me! If you’re ever interested in proving otherwise, let me know. If you don’t care, I know you know what you are too. Look at yourself. And look what you’ve done. Look what you’ve f*cking done! Look at your son. He’s a f*cking mess. You f*cking excuse for a mother . You’re a f*cking bitch!”
“I don’t have any f*cking money! I have to support you and everybody else! I have to sell paintings. I have to sell my box at the Lakers game.”
“You ruined MY life first! I ruined your life? How did I ruin your life? I gave you sh*t! You gave me nothing but f*cking grief! Alright? And bad publicity, you c*nt! How did I ruin your life?”
And yo! Let’s not forget that there are children involved here, as well.
Although I’ve found myself wondering if it’s fair or appropriate for Oksana to make money off of these tapes, the bottom line is that Mel Gibson’s a shithead and you should never, ever speak to another human like he did. He’s power tripping off his ability to dangle money over her head, and that’s just sick and abusive. If bringing his true character to light is what will make Mel get serious, serious help, or even just make him disappear, then I think releasing these tapes was the right thing to do.
