The anti-semitic, revisionist filmaker did it again while making a speaking appearance at a film class at California State University, Northridge (CSUN) yesterday evening. As reported by TMZ.com and others, Mel had a meltdown when confronted by an assistant professor of Central American studies about the accuracry of his depiction of the Mayan culture. As the assistant professor, Alicia Estrada continued to press Gibson, he exploded and told Estrada,
“Lady, F*** off!”
While Gibson has apologized for his outburst, he stresses that he still stands by his research and his film’s accuracy, saying, “What do these nitpicking bitches want? I saw From Dusk Till Dawn seven f***ing times before Apocalypto began shooting.”
We at BFD don’t quite understand that last statement as From Dusk Till Dawn was clearly a fictional work, specifically devised to be a horror film, by director Robert Rodriguez, with no pretense of being factual or based upon any true story, was Gibson saying his research for Apocalypto was the screening of From Dusk Till Dawn? Maybe Gibson is not simply a bigoted demagogue, maybe all he is just a misinformed, ignorant, uneducated, boorish fool, the product of his bigoted upbringing and his addiction to alcohol.
Mel, calm down, clean-up your life, get honest with yourself, get appropriate medical and psychiatric counseling, your self-destruction of your brain cells is already quite apparent, you are not going to get any new cells, so for your own good, fix the ones you have left, otherwise you will end up talking only to yourself:
The meltdown at CSUN.
