Behold Mel Gibson living down to his reputation. Earlier today Rick Sanchez highlighted Gibson in his ‘the list u don’t want 2 be on’ segment for a comment Gibson made to KTLA entertainment reporter Sam Rubin during a press junket for his new movie Edge of Darkness (watch the video…Gibson is not a person you’d want to be stuck in a small room with). In the clip Rubin is trying to edge his way around asking Gibson whether he is worried how he will be received by the public in his first foray back into movies since going on a reported anti-Semitic tirade to cops after being pulled over for drunk driving back in 2006. Here’s the exchange:
Reporter: Some people are going to welcome you back, and some people are going to say you should never come back.
Reporter: Because of what happened before.
MG: What happened before?
Reporter: The remarks that were attributed to you.
MG: That were attributed to me that I didn’t necessarily make.
Reporter: Uh Huh
MG: But and I gather you have a dog in this fight.
Reporter: Pardon me?
MG: You have a dog in this fight? Or are you being impartial?
Reporter: You tell me. I’m trying to be impartial.
MG: Ok. Well I’m back. And I hope it works out. And I hope people will graciously accept me back.
It’s hard to impart the level of crazy sarcasm in that last sentence. And yes! Absolutely. Don’t you feel endeared to Mel Gibson now! Lordy. Who talks like that? Video below.
