Remember how we said we missed slutty Lindsay Lohan in the news?
You should. That was yesterday.
Well, The Hollywood Gossip staff has also missed the unqualified rage of Mel Gibson. But we can finally relax. The Jew-hating drunk is back … and Mayan experts are his next target!
According to TMZ.com, the Michael Richards sympathizer was at Cal State University at Northridge in the San Fernando Valley last night. Gibson was speaking to a film class about his movies and several members of the Mayan community came to hear the famous director.
After Gibson’s presentation, the crowd was allowed to ask questions. Which is a recipe for disaster akin to asking Nicole Richie to move for more than five consecutive minutes.
Alicia Estrada, an Assistant Professor of Central American Studies at CSUN, challenged Gibson, asking him if he had read about the Mayan culture before shooting the controversial film. Mel said he had.
Estrada persisted, stating that representations in the movie that the Mayans engaged in sacrificial ceremonies and had bloodthirsty tendencies were both wrong and racist. Estrada and others tell TMZ that Gibson exploded in anger, responding, “Lady, F**k off.”
Even his publicist, Howard Rubenstein – who’s job seems more difficult than Sanjaya Malakar vocal coach – said: “He needs more anger management training. It’s time to be cool.”
We still have faith in you, Mel. If Heather Mills can dance and dig gold on one leg, anything is possible.
