You know, child abuse allegations are serious business, and naturally, child abuse itself is even worse. As you’ve all heard, Mel Gibson and Oksana Grigorieva’s child, Lucia (a baby, for fuck’s sake), was supposed to have been in Oksana’s arms when Mel allegedly went out on one of his rages, and the child was said to be hit in my mouth by Mel himself.
RadarOnline, a normally reputable site, claims to have “exclusive” photos of the child (the baby; a tiny little baby) after she was hit in the mouth, and Radar just went ahead and published them. I did not look at these photos, I do not want to see them, and sorry, guys, but I won’t even link in this post to where you can find them. I think releasing photos of an infant with what’s said to be facial abrasions is the height of reprehension and find anyone who’d peddle the photos (parent, photo agency, magazine, whatever) to be a fucking parasite on the dirty underbelly of the dredges of humanity.
Whether or not Mel and Oksana have gone through what is said to have happened is aside from the fact — a child was involved in one way or another and that child should be protected. From an abusive parent, curious onlookers and worse — gossip magazines and websites.
This has really got me upset.
