Mel Gibson: Spewing Homo-hatred Since 1991

"While the critics are probably right in saying he's going to have a hard time restoring the public's affection after his most recent tirade--shocking recordings of verbal and implied physical abuse against his girlfriend--he's been in similar situations before, many times. A look at his public record isn't pretty."

Ben Widdicombe writes:
As web sites such as have pointed out, his trail of ugly rhetoric stretches back to 1991, when he angered the gay community with remarks made to the Spanish newspaper El Pais and reported in the U.S. by columnist Liz Smith.

"They take it up the a**..this is only for taking a s***," he told the newspaper. "With this look, who's going to think I'm gay? I don't lend myself to that type of confusion. Do I look like a homosexual? Do I talk like them? Do I move like them?"

When asked about the comments by Good Morning America, he replied:

"I don't think there's an apology necessary, and I'm certainly not giving one. [Those remarks were a response] to a direct question. If someone wants my opinion, I'll give it. What, am I supposed to lie to them?"

When asked about the incident again by Playboy in 1995, he responded:

"I'll apologize when hell freezes over. They can f*** off."

(He later agreed to peace talks with the gay group GLAAD, brokered by its then-media director, Chaz Bono.) READ MORE
Mel "the good Catholic" Gibson is a hypocrite and unrepentant sinner. In Hollywood, nobody cares if you hate gays but charges of domestic battery get the suits running scared.

Suit #1: Did you hear about Gibson?
Suit #2: About him hating queers?
Suit #1: Yeah.
Suit #2: Who cares?

Suit #1: Did you hear about Mel Gibson allegedly beating his baby-mama?
Suit #2: Ah, crap! Now we'll NEVER get women to see a Gibson movie ever again!
