(ANI): Actor Mel Gibson lost his cool on a TV show and called a
journalist an “a**hole" after he was questioned about his drinking
past and infamous anti-Semetic rant. Gibson was with WGN TV's Dean
Richards who asked the Braveheart actor if he was a different
person since the events several years ago.
"You've gone through a lot of ups and downs,"Richards said.
"It's a real rollercoaster ride. You know I think I''m the same
person I always was except for.....time teaches and you learn as
you go," the Courier Mail quoted Gibson, as saying.
When Richards quizzed Gibson on his drinking problems and the
alleged "anti-semetic rant" to a police officer in 2006, Gibson
answered: "That's almost four years ago dude. I've moved on...I
guess you haven't. I've done all the necessary mea culpas....um,
let's move on dude, c'mon"
As the reporter began to wrap up the show, Gibson slug back his
coffee, gave a thumbs up and thinking he was off-air called
Richards an “a**hole".
