Mel Gibson has wandered towards the edge of darkness again by calling a Chicago TV reporter a seven-letter word on the air.
The once-and-apparently-future Mad Mel employed an epithet that rhymes with “crass bowl,” after WGN-TV entertainment reporter Dean Richards kept pressing him on the fallout of his 2006 drunk-driving arrest, during which the actor shouted anti-Semitic and sexist insults at a female police officer.
Not particularly interested in revisiting that chapter, Gibson remarks, “That’s almost four years ago, dude. I’ve moved on, I guess you haven’t… I’ve done all the necessary mea culpas, so let’s move on, dude. Come on.”
Richards wraps up the interview by reminding viewers to check out Edge of Darkness, Gibson’s highly touted return to movie acting that’s proven to be, shall we say, less than a box-office smash.
Gibson says his goodbyes, takes a gulp of coffee, and, apparently believing he’s off the air, calls Edwards a crass bowl. The fun can be found here.
