Mel Gibson's Mouth: A Lethal Weapon

Mel Gibson is at it again -- this time hurling the n-word at his baby's mother on tape.


It seems that America's former favorite heartthrob and actor just can't keep his demons to himself. You may remember when he got pulled over for drunk driving some years back, he made anti-Semitic remarks to the highway patrol officer. It seems this time, the mother of his eighth child, Oksana Grigorieva, is the object of his disaffection. He is currently embroiled in a bitter custody battle with Grigorieva, who taped one of Gibson's rants in which he stated, ""You look like a f*king pig in heat, and if you get raped by a pack of ni**ers, it will be your fault." Ouch. It actually gets worse, and somehow, we're not surprised.
