Mel Gibson Opens Up About Tapes Of His Tirades!

mel gibson talks tirade tapes

Last we heard about Mel Gibson, The Beaver director Jodie Foster was continuing to defend the man.

Now, Mel is coming to his own defense with regards to the tapes of his offensive rants towards Oksana Grigorieva.

Here's what he had to say about the tapes:

"Who anticipates being recorded? Who anticipates that? Who could anticipate such a personal betrayal?"

"I’ve never treated anyone badly or in a discriminatory way based on their gender, race, religion or sexuality — period. I don’t blame some people for thinking that though, from the garbage they heard on those leaked tapes, which have been edited.”

“[The tapes represent] one terribly, awful moment in time, said to one person, in the span of one day and [not] what I truly believe, or how I’ve treated people my entire life.”

More from Mel on the tapes:

"The main thing [about the tape scandal] is that it was terribly humiliating and painful for my family [and] all my kids."

We're certainly sorry for the kids, but then again, all of this could have been avoided if Mel hadn't said such awful things in the first place.

What do U think about Mel's comments regarding his tirade tapes?

    Lies, the man is obviously delusional. Sad.



  2. 2

    They were said during a heated arguement in PRIVATE that someone he TRUSTED enough to marry taped. Many who have known Mel vouch for his character. Personally it is bs that it is even an issue. He is an actor, let him act.



  3. 3

    ONE TIME!!!! What ever.. He has said horrible rasist anti-semtic things multiple times!!!! This isnt a one time deal this has been over a span of years. He can whine and cry that he is not racist all he wants to but everyone knows the truth.



  4. 4

    he was a jerk and i don't like him at all in fact he probably is a little crazy maybe strung out who knows, but he was neg and nasty to an adult in what he thought to be a private converstation. however oksana took that private convo tape it (first act showing her true intentions) and then release as legal extortion for her own personal gain not caring who it effected kids included. thats just as bad if not worse. gold diggers are so blinded by the cash they act as sociopaths in that they have no care or remorse at who they hurt or how and have no shame, dignity and grace. both fail



  5. 5

    He is sorry about getting aught, nothing else

    Spoken like a true racist! Quick, someone get him a white hood stat!

    Re: OneLove5 – What he did when he didn't think he was being recorded, speaks louder than his explanation.. and his past outbursts as well. he didn't think he was being recorded.. he could be himself. On the other hand, I can totally hear how overwhelmed he is with her.. I don't doubt for a second she brings the absolute worst out of a man with money. That said.. I agree with your last bit.. I don't give a shit what he does in his life.. I don't know him personally and I won't judge because we don't have the whole story.. I will always watch his movies. To us, that's all he is. I really hope the actor Mel can come back from this at some point. If Chris brown can,….

    Because calling a female officer of the law "Sugar Tits" is not discriminatory in the least, right Mel?



  9. 9

    I think he's a lying sack of sick trying very hard to save his sorry ass.

    I wouldn't pay one damn dime to see anything he's in now. And the rest of the world should follow. His behavior is unacceptable.

    Regarding the bimbo, she's a raging gold digger and is responsible for a lot of what she gets too. I bet she has a hard time now finding anyone to date her sorry ass.

    I hope his little escapade with her was worth all the trouble. Men need to learn the difference between a golddigger and a real woman. Until then this nonsense will continue.

    Think with the right head! Don't be stupid. Mel had a quality wife and he blew that off for this bimbo? Pathetic.



  10. 10

    He's obviously a liar as this isn't the only time that things like this have come out.
    I certainly wouldn't pay to see anything he's associated with, so that I'm sure that none of my money goes to someone like him.

    Re: Novel1 – LOL THANK YOU!!!



  12. 12

    What about the horrible things YOU say, Mario? Hopefully another ass-kicking Will.I.Am-style is headed your way very soon.

    Being an abuse survivor as a child and then as a wife, it is just sooo easy for people to deflect and blame. Mom beat the crap out of me "because I was independent and made her feel unneeded" being that it started as a toddler, you can see how people can make excuses for themselves!! The ex isn't even worth mentioning. The point is, I find this man reprehensible. Just because he can act and has money does not mean he get a get out of jail free. I don't even want to see him let alone support his career. "moment in time" You deserve to lose everything. Your excuses are shit and apparently the court kinda felt that way too. And OneLove5, everybody thought my crackhead wife-beating husband was a great guy too. You don't know what happens behind closed doors. I should have taped everyday!!! Mel… GO AWAY.



  14. 14

    If he was a liberal you would be making up excuses for him and forgiven him a long time ago…see Alec Baldwin.



  15. 15

    I forgive him.. His explanation makes sense. I've said stupid things out of anger or when drunk amongst close friends or a partner and had it been taped I would have been screwed.. and had I know it was being taped or would go public I would have been much more careful of my words because they don't represent what I want to put out in the world. I may not have said racist things like Mel, but I have said stupid shit and I think that we all have… He's asked for forgiveness and he says he's not a racist person.. It would be a different story if he stood by his racist comments. People need to learn how to be forgiving and not acting so F@*King perfect..

    Here are a few memorable quotes from Mel "I'm not discriminatory" Gibson.

    "The Jews are responsible for all the wars in the world" -Berating his arresting officer, DUI in 2006.

    "They take it up the ass. This is only for taking a shit…" -Discussing homosexuals El Pais magazine, December 1991

    "What do you think you're looking at, sugar tits?"

    "Feminists don't like me, and I don't like them." Mel Gibson talking about feminism

    | "A woman should be home with the children, building that home and making sure there's a secure family atmosphere." Mel Gibson on where he thinks women belong

    "I own Malibu… I am going to fuck you." — during 2006 DUI

    "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?" —from the El Pais interview

    "I'll apologize when hell freezes over. They can fuck off." —to Playboy in 1995

    I probably could have found more, but I think you get my point now!

    He's said some very unfortunate things. I do feel for his family.



  18. 18

    I LOVE YOU MEL!!!!! for ever



  19. 19

    i'd be pissed too. i have a friend who is so annoying with her phone secretly recording convo's…god i couldnt even imagine half the shit that flies out of my mouth when i'm pissed off..that was personal shit they were arguing about and he trusted her.



  20. 20

    I'd say there is more betrayal in being talked and yelled at in such a disrespectful manner….who anticipates that? Reprehensible.



  21. 21

    Re: Mario_Sucks.com – –EXACTLY!!!!! How quickly he forgets that he called Wil.I.Am a homophobic slur! A fa**ot!!! What about that Perez? Should anybody forgive you? Hypocrite!



  22. 22

    Who anticipates the father of their child to punch them, threaten them, wish they were raped by a pack of Ni**ers (his words not mine) oh and also he is an anti semite homophobic misogynist also documented when he was arrested before any of this happened. Wake up we are not stupid



  23. 23

    Still love him no matter what.



  24. 24

    sounds like he is in utter denial if he doesn't think he's ever "treated anyone badly or in a discriminatory way.." if u listen to the tapes, he is clearly sexist, and in other instances has been quoted saying anti semitic remarks.

    DENIAL.

    This is exactly how my abusive and alcoholic husband justified his abusive behaviour - it was an isolated incident (he conveniently forgot all of the other times), it was because of the alcohol, I exaggerated, I embarrassed him by talking about it (he is too much of a coward to admit what he did) and that he is really nice to other people, which was absolutely true, he did not treat other people the way he treated me.

    Be a man, Mel, and own up to your actions.



  26. 26

    Total piece of shit. I can't even watch any of his old movies on TV, let alone pay to watch him at a theater.

    "who Anticipates being recorder? who anticipates that"? Someone in fear of loosing their Daughter to a Violent, Sexist, Racist.Pig! thats who, Mel.
    And up until she pressed "record" would have had a very hard time getting the American legal System to protect her interests over a big ugly bully like Mel.



  28. 28

    THIS IS SO OLD NEWS LET IT GO ALREADY WHO WRITES THIS CRAP



  29. 29

    Mel Gibson and his father Hutton Gibson have spent a lifetime involved in and promoting a conspiratorial and severe sect of Catholicism which has all of those bigoted concepts built into it. If he wants to pretend he simply 'lost it' once or twice then that's the line he can tow. If anyone believes that then they don't know much about his history. He has built this wall of crap that has fallen on him and he has earned everything that's come his way.

    MESSAGE TO YOU ALL: WOULDN'T YOU WANT TO BE FORGIVEN (NOT NECESSARILY FORGOTTEN)? I DON'T BELIEVE FOR ONE MINUTE THE GUY IS RACIST OR OTHERWISE. I THINK ONE COP BLEW SOMETHING WAY OUT OF PROPORTION WAY BACK AND NOW IT'S RACIST NO MATTER WHAT MEL SAYS. SO SHUT UP ALREADY.
    AND I CAN SEE BY EXAMPLE (HOW YOU TREAT PEREZ) THAT PEOPLE CAN'T CATCH A BREAK FROM YOU INSIGNIFICANT AZZES NO MATTER HOW MUCH THEY HAVE CHANGED (PEREZ) OR HOW MANY TIMES THEY TALK ABOUT INCIDENTS (MEL) TILL THEY'RE BLUE IN THE FACE. WHICH ONE OF YOU HAVE NEVER EVER DID OR SAID SOMETHING HURTFUL OR RACIST FOR THAT MATTER, PLEASE STAND UP. YEP, I THOUGHT SO. KEEP YOUR EFFING PIEHOLES SHUT.

    Re: OneLove5 – Yes! Everyone knows he has dealt with addictions…she KNEW. I consider myself to be an extremely tolerant person…even marched for Civil Rights…but I also know that when I have had a few too many and had my butttons pushed,I have said some very wrong things when I was in a difficult relationship….and I think she KNEW what buttons to push,and when….let him act.

    The tapes were just the latest well-publicized rants, there have been multiple incidents of sexist/anti-semetic behaviour and speech on Mel's part in the past. The man is scum and a liar.



  35. 35

    As much as I believe in privacy, I can't believe him when he says these conversations span one day. Not ONCE in his "explanation" did he ever take responsibility for opening his mouth and spewing such hatred to the MOTHER of his CHILD. He has called her a whore and a slut- if she didn't tape him, no one would have believed her. His verbal abuse is just that- ABUSE.
    His father is a racist and although he can say time and time again that he isn't, he seems to make some horrible racist, sexist, and anti semitic rants- but of course, he was drinking, so couldn't bother to be responsible for opening his mouth and drinking at the time, either. Someone MUST have held a gun to his head and forced him to drink and talk.
    Mel is a victim of only one thing- MEL.



  36. 36

    I see zero personal responsibility taken here by Mel. Oh, poor him. Such the victim. Between his incident in Malibu and these tapes, people are finally seeing the real him. What a monster. Then he says he's never treated anyone badly. Because calling a female cop 'sugartits' and punching the mother of your children is normal behavior. PLEASE. This man's career and live are deservedly destroyed, a rare act of justice in Hollywood.

    He shouldn't have said what he said, period, and he knows better; and no woman with class would have made those personal tapes public. She can say 'she' didn't release them all she wants, but she made the tapes, so handing them off for someone else to do the dirty work (and that's what it was) still doesn't absolve her part in it. Perhaps ugly begets ugly.
