Radar has just released a third audio clip of Mel Gibson screaming at his ex (this is the “wetback” clip. Another highlight: “You’re a f*cking mentally deprived idiot. You’re a f*cking using whore…I own you. You don’t count.”) but at least now one of his Hollywood friends is saying something in his defense.
Similar to what producer Dean Devlin said after Mels DUI and anti-Semitic comments in 2006, yesterday on ‘the View’ Whoopi Goldberg said she is friends with Mel and does not believe he’s racist.
“I don’t like what he did here, but I know Mel and I know he’s not a racist … I have had a long friendship with Mel, I just wanna make this really clear … You can say he’s being a bonehead but I can’t sit and say that he’s a racist having spent time with him in my house with my kids, I can’t say it.”
Whoopi deserves a lot of credit for being fair enough to balance her emotions with what she knows to be true. Unfortunately Joy Behar and Sherri Shepherd are still a racists dream come true, someone for them to point at and say “see?”. Seriously, do white supremacists produce this show, what in the hell are those dummies doing on TV?
