Mel Gibson Feels Sorry For Tiger Woods

by at . Comments

Mel Gibson is upset about the Tiger Woods scandal. Not because Woods cheated on his wife - adulterers gotta stick together! - but with the extensive coverage.

"I feel sorry for Tiger Woods," Mel told the Daily Mail (UK).

"Why are we talking about this when we're sending 30,000 troops to Afghanistan? You have this history-changing event going on and we're talking about Tiger's private life? He's being used as a diversion and it drives me crazy. I just think, 'Who cares?'"

EDITOR'S NOTE: Mel, you're an idiot. This asinine argument would only make sense if ABC World News led with Tiger's mistresses and not war. It does not.

Like the movies that made Mel a vast fortune, celebrity gossip is an entertainment form with a wide audience. Can people only talk about war at all times?

Of course not. People like to read gossip, and sorry, but the world's most famous athlete being involved in an enormous sex scandal does constitute news.

So does a jackass actor getting arrested for DUI, calling a female cop "sugar t!ts" and blaming all the world's problems on Jews. But that's beside the point.

Mel Gibson's got your back, Tiger.

Perhaps Mel just sympathizes with Tiger's marital drama after he split with his wife of 28 years, Robyn, last year. And knocked up mistress Oksana Grigorieva.

"When all's said and done, I did a pretty good hatchet job on my marriage," the Edge of Darkness star does admit. "I'm to blame, if you're inclined to judge."

He adds, "Nobody is without sin. You have to try to make amends. You have to shut up, move on and not whine about it. You have to deal with it like a man.

"Whatever fallout comes from it, be it fair or unfair, you've just got to accept your own culpability," he says. "The minute you start whining, it's ridiculous."

That's good advice, and at least it's an honest assessment of the situation. Just don't expect websites not to call you out on your boorish behavior, M-dog.


No Editor, you're the idiot. Mel's exactly right. Who gives a poop about what TW or anybody else (including you!) does in their private life. Well...of do! You celebrity gossip parasites make a living off of the human misfortunes of the rich and famous. We all suffer private and sometimes public tragedies in our lives in one form or another...divorce, suicide, drug or alcohol abuse, tragic accidents. I'm absolutely confident that if someone provided me with a little budget, I could find some garbage in your family too (any takers? if so, please email me). Get a life Editor... By the way, that ex Russian girlfriend of Mel Gibson's is obviously a total scam artist. It happens all the time...Mel was just careless to let that happen...


Note the news reporters leads into this story,, they all stick together,,They are Happy as can be about tiger,, it made headlines, and made the Reporters and their papers money,,They
are probably overjoyed that they trapped Mel lthe way they did,, the mike was left on on purpose. When you read the papers and listen to the news,, we all should be aware that, News in Americas is made up of smut, sensationalism,half-truths, and terrible bias, and sometimes just plain false, or mistaken information. And we should not,, under any circumstances believe everything we read, or hear on the Boob Tube.


Hey, the mistresses didn't owe this dirtbag anything: it was, as he wanted, a simple business transaction. He wanted sex; they provided; they wanted fame; he provided. Is he being treated worse than some other athletes? Sure -- then again, he marketed an image of himself as Mr. Family Man, and failed to live up to that image, disappointing his family, sponsors, and the public along the way. Now each is responding to his failure. And is it enough? The public has a funny way of deciding that for themselves.


I agree with Mel, enough is enough! Time to move on!!!!!!!!!!


reki martin, the thing that I agree with you is about the mistresses, that is the worst part of all of this, they came out on top of this mess. They somehow are looking like vicitms, they were all made "famous" off of this situation, some even spilling their intimate moments with him on the air or magazines. Yes, he didn't have to do it but they are as much to blame.


While I agree that the Tiger coverage was just too much over the top, I mean, give us info but blow by blow coverage on a weekly basis is just too much.....Mel G is the last person who should be defending Tiger. That I agree with.


I am sick of this Tiger mess. He is being treated worse than Michael Phelps who actually did something illegal. Here you have Charlie Sheen who's chasing his wife around with a knife and its looked at as minor. Attempted murder is way worse than adultery. The so called mistresses just want to be seen and the way its all happening seems like he may have been set up from the start. He and his wife should be left alone to deal with what should be a private matter. But I guess the media has to remind Tiger that no matter what he's achieved he's still black. Sad sad sad


He's right about the fruitless war, people are dying there for nothing.
American's like to poke their fingers at people like Mel and Tiger with a false sense of moral superiority. You people have less money than them, focus on improving your lives and mind your business...what's the use no one listens...


His point is that the Tiger buzz overkill was too much...after it broke, for the 11th was more than irrelevant. Just like the Jon Gosselin overkill....he is saying move on to more relevant and pertinent news, gossip is not news...
