Mel Gibson -- Helping Poor Guatemalan Kids

6/8/2011 8:49 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Mel Gibson has touched down in Guatemala -- where he's  doing work for a kids charity -- the same kids charity he did work for to complete his court-ordered community service.

Mel completed his 16 hours of community service several months ago with Mending Kids. The community service was part of  the plea deal he struck for allegedly striking ex-girlfriend Oksana Grigorieva.

Mending Kids International provides medical care to underprivileged children. Robyn Gibson is a former President of the Malibu chapter.  Mel and Robyn have been doing work with the charity for years.

Though his rants showed an amazingly ugly side to him, I think this is good of him to do.

Gibson is working with a children's charity. He's not impregnating his live in housekeeper and hiding it from his wife Arnie-style, he's not sexting pics of his boner and saggy pecs to women Weiner-style, he's not a child rapist Polanski-style. He said some bad words to his extortionist and when he was bombed during his DUI. WOW he's a real monster. I'd like to see Arnie, Weiner and Polanski do as much for charity as Gibson has throughout his life.

People are too hard on Gibson. He's positively mild compared to the rest of the freaks in Hollywood.

Doesn't get much faker than this. Wonder what names he'll call them? He'll probably try to get them to be extras in his next gorefest movie for a bowl of rice while he yucks it up in Malibu.

FN - when TMZ 1st posted this, the article read (paraphrasing) that MG was in Guatemala to do his 16 hours of service (it went on to say he had until tomorrow to complete it). I believe TMZ went back and corrected the mistake to what it reads now (we know TMZ does not have any Nobel Prize winning "journalists" and accuracy isnt their forte)

Re the haters: I don't see much differenc e in the Haters and the Nazi's!

Because they refuse to read anthing except the yellow media they know vey little, because they don't know how to think for themsleves they can't make any sense out of the inconsistancies and many versions told so they don't even TRY, because they ACT n their hate and spew their hate in all directions THEY ARE JUST LIKE THEM!

Confused    

TMZ is obviously hurting for comments (hits). Note the the last
story with the most comments was on Mel. How many people that are Mel bashers do any charity work whatsoever. YOU GO MEL!!!!
