It seems Mel Gibson just doesn't knowÂ when to shut up. In 2006 he was pulled over by police for DUI and blamed all wars on Jews while he was in a drunken stupor. That episode tainted his image and caused him to lose some fans. Now, while he is in the middle of a nasty custody battle with his ex-girlfriend, Oksana Grigorieva, he was caught on tape dropping the N-bomb.
While fighting with Grigorieva, he said, "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." TMZ reported the existence of the tape and say that Grigorieva has already submitted the tape to the judge as evidence. Good luck explaining that one, Mel. Ask Michael Richards what using the N-word does for your career.
There were reports that Gibson had filed a restraining order against GrigorievaÂ that prevented her from talking about their relationship. If his vocabulary included regular use of the N-word, he wouldn't want that getting out, costing him more fans and possibly more money to his baby mama if she can prove he was violent during their relationship.
