Mel Gibson Says It’s Annoying When People Bring Up The “Sugar Tits” Time In His Life

October 28, 2016 / Posted by:

Mel Gibson is out promoting Hacksaw Ridge, the first film he’s directed since 2006’s Apocalypto. 2006 was also the same year Mel was arrested in L.A. for going full-Mad Mel on a police officer who pulled him over for drunk driving. Ten years later, and there’s probably not many people who scratch their head and go “Hmmm…” when asked if they remember what Mel said the night of his DUI. Mel has since apologized a bunch of times for everything Drunk Mel said back in 2006, but he was recently asked about it again. Mel said two years ago that he was done apologizing, and he really meant it. Mel didn’t have another sorry in his pocket. Instead he made it clear that he’d really appreciate it if we all stopped bringing up the time he hated on the Jews.

During an interview with Variety’s Playback podcast, Mel was asked for his feelings about people boycotting Hacksaw Ridge because they don’t want to support that guy who blamed the Jews for all the wars. Mel has long been over what he calls his pressure-triggered “nervous breakdown,” and he thinks we should be too.

“It’s pretty old stuff. It’s ten years old. It’s an unfortunate incident, I was loaded and angry, and arrested, so, you know, these things happen. I was recorded – illegally – by an unscrupulous police officer who was never prosecuted for that crime, and then it was made public by him for profit. So – not fair.

Ten years have gone by. I’m feeling good. I’m sober, all of that kind of stuff, and for me it’s a dim thing in the past. But others bring it up, which kind of I find annoying, because I don’t understand why after 10 years it’s any kind of issue. Surely if I was really what they say I was, some kind of hater, there’d be evidence of actions somewhere. There never has been. I’ve never discriminated against anyone or done anything that sort of supports that reputation. And for one episode in the back of a police car on eight double tequilas to sort of dictate all the work, life’s work and beliefs and everything else that I have and maintain for my life is really unfair.”

Hey, don’t drag us into this” said double shots of tequila. Mel’s explanation happens around the 41:18 mark.

So Mel wants us to “dim” the memory of him ranting about Jews and sweet sugary tits. Okay, so should we also be installing a dimmer switch on that recording of him going off on Oksana Grigorieva in 2010? Or that other recording? Or that other, other recording? Or when Mel referred to one of his employees as a “wetback“? Or raging out on a screenwriter? Or going Mad Mel at a DUI checkpoint in 2013? Let me know if you have a Costco membership card I can borrow, because it looks like I’m going to have to buy my dimmer switches in bulk.
