Mel Gibson

One Word Tirade

2/2/2010 7:00 PM PST BY TMZ STAFF

A frustrated Mel Gibson was pitching his new movie to a Chicago TV reporter today, only to be repeatedly blocked by questions about his infamous anti-Semitic rant -- it resulted in an A-bomb explosion.

Mel Gibson One World Tirade Screen Shot
After an uncomfortable first few minutes during the satellite interview, the WGN-TV reporter gave his obligatory "go see the movie" -- and kissed Mel off.

Mel, apparently thinking the interview was over, took a swig of his coffee drink ... and called the guy an "asshole."

So we ask ...

The reporter is a total Douche Bag. Just another pretentious hack trying to make himself the story. How is this any different than the paps slobs on the street trying to incite celebs for a reaction. Total Douche Bag.

I WONDERED WHY MEL GIBSON GETS A PASS ON ALL HIS OUTRAGEOUS BEHAVIOR. anti-semitic rant now a bastard baby with his mistress. It's about time someone called him out on it.

Mel is an anti-semetic pig. And he's gotten so ugly, and you can tell the alcohol has caused him some serious brain damage. His behaviour shows he has absolutely no remorse about what he did. He drinks and drives and puts kids at risk, all cause he's an arrogant idiot. I wouldn't see his movie for anything. Bye bye Mel. a-hole.

Oh, so I am sure that all of your heroes are perfect? Please find another avenue for your frustration. Perhaps you should think about therapy?

"Mel got drunk...Mel did/said stupid things...we have all been there in some form or fashion."

WE ALL HAVE COUNTLESS DUIs? that's absurd and ridiculously false. Mel Gibson's behavior over the years has been beyond outrageous and its about time he was called on it. One DUI is too many but one is more understandable as we all make mistakes. but to keep doing the same thing over and over again and putting innocent people's lives at risk is unacceptable. why fools like you defend and make excuses for him is beyond me.

Dean Richards was doing his job. He is a class act. Mel Gibson has made the news in the past few years as a result of anti-semitic rants, driving under the influence, relationship problems, and other craziness. His career is in a tail-span. Whose the _ _ _ hole? I think it's clear.

yessir...I totally agree.

Looks like the film is bombing anyhow...mel's movie star days are well behind him now. His looks are gone. And he's dumb as a doorknob. He should be ashamed of how he behaved, instead he appears nutty & defiant. He is a fruit loop now, and a very ugly and bitter one. Karma.

C'mon not asking about that would be BAD journalism. Every time they interview Alec Baldwin they bring up his one angry phone call with his daughter. The fact is this jerk said anti-semitic things to the police.

Mel FORCED Dean to be more specific so he did. It's time for Mel to retire. He is not interesting and a has been of the highest order. (and a nutbag too)

Like someone else mentioned, everyone is willing to shove Mel Gibson off a cliff for a drunken comment he made forever ago... but they're willing to give Roman Polansky a pass on HAVING SEX WITH A MINOR!! Yeah, we have our priorities set.

I am a Chicago resident and watch this new channel every morning. Dean Richards (the reporter) even said a day prior, that Mel's people asked that no one ask about the prior inncodent ( as he should, hell it was 4 years ago!!!)Mel agrees to the interview to promote his new film and well, A-hole , trying to get a rise and publicity, Dean Richards did anyway. Seriously. I see his interviews daily. He has always been partial to certain celebs, and rips on those he has some "issues" with after interviewing. Not one ounce professional. Maybe Dean Richards should resort to being a National Enquirer editor instead. Idiot!!

"People act like that one instance is the end all and be all of who Mel Gibson is"


If it was just one instance than your position might make sense. But he has a PATTERN of hateful and intolerant remarks and a slew of DUIs one in which he CRASHED INTO SOMEONE.

AWESOME GREAT FILM I RECOMMEND...FABULOUS the new movie of his we just saw today! Another of the best of the rest .. a film that can't only be damned by those who want to bash Mel. Hey, I was a reporter once adn I'd never ask such dumb questions.. not ever. He did an a amazing job without a minute wasted of suspense not captured. Edge of Darkenss .. go see it .. just the best of all !!!
