Well, that's not true. Even Mel would probably be appalled at Richards' racist tirade from the other night at the Laugh Factory comedy club. But perhaps a small part of Gibson was pulling for something like this... just so he could shed the label of Biggest Bigot in Hollywood.
And perhaps a small part of the former Seinfeld star, who showed off a disturbing inner hatred, was inspired by Mel's antics earlier this summer, when the Passion of the Christ director was pulled over for speeding and launched into a shockingly memorable drunken, anti-Semetic rant at the Malibu police station.
Now maybe Kramer will send flowers to "Sugar Tits," the female cop that Gibson accosted on that fateful night, as well, Of course, she was not the only person who needed an apology after Gibson's behavior. And Richards owes the tens of millions of African-Americans in the U.S. a lot more than a bouquet and some random remarks to David Letterman.
