Did Mel Gibson cross the line?

Mel Gibson’s career may not survive this latest rant turned scandal.

Years ago Mel Gibson was a top movie star and a family man with a long term marriage. Gibson was admired and well respected all over the world. But in the decade since, he has made a name for himself and not in a good way. Now things are really getting ugly for Mel Gibson.

Mel Gibson is in a media swarm again

You will recall in 1992 Mel Gibson was accused of homophobia. In 2004 he was accused of anti-Semitism. In 2006, Mel Gibson was accused of sexism after he was pulled over for suspicion of DUI. Now it's 2010 and Mel Gibson is accused of racism against his ex-girlfriend, Oksana Grigorieva, the mother of his child.

In the more than a little nasty breakup from his ex-girlfriend, Oksana Grigorieva, she is said to believe Gibson is an "extremely violent" person and poses a threat to their daughter, Lucia. Lucia was born on October 30, 2009. It's too bad there is an innocent child in the mix. Sources say that child services will be investigating.

What a mess Mel! Who haven't you cheesed off?

The movie-going public can be a fickle bunch and this won't sit well with them. Some think this will be the end for Mel Gibson. I think he has shown his true colors once too often and I, for one, have lost respect. The bigger they are, the harder they fall.
