15 Celebs With The Baddest Reputation

1. Mel Gibson

Mel Gibson, the star of Braveheart and The Passion of the Christ, has sometimes failed to exhibit much Christian charity in the things he’s reported as saying.

The most notorious charge against him is that of anti-Semitism.

He has also been reported as making remarks insulting to homosexual people, to people of color and to Mexicans, who he is said to have referred to as ‘wetbacks’.

These lapses often happen when the actor has had a lot to drink.

Gibson’s ex-colleague, the script writer, Joe Esterhazy was recently involved in a project with the actor to create a film about the Maccabee revolt in ancient Judea.

The script written by Esterhazy has now been rejected as unusable by Gibson, resulting in a furious public row. Esterhazy has claimed that the project was sabotaged by the actor because of his hostility to Jewish people.

There are documented instances of this prejudice, most famously when the drunken actor was stopped by a traffic policeman, only to accuse the law officer of being a Jew, and informing him that the Jews had caused all the wars in history.

He later apologized. Apologies are all very well, but Gibson is unlikely to be forgiven while his ugly speeches continue.

    Kristen Stewart’s career is not ruined! She’s young, made a mistake, apologized publicly, been single ever since, and has been more private about her home life. She’s still got a whole lifetime to go yet. The people who are still ruining her reputation is the gossip magazines, who will not let this old news die. My opinion, Kristen should date other men. She might find that perfect one, you never know.

    Our adoring, cozy, nurturing, fake Mommy figures are the new preacher’s of the last 50 years. The preacher’s used to give so many people a sense of hope and permanence that seemed to be lacking, so long as they were provided a substantial, undeclared, tax-free donation that was than used by the Holy men of God , for drugs, women/men/boys/little girls. I’ll take the fake Mom’s at least they can still provide some really wonderful, tasty, comfort-food recipes. If we can’t be delivered to our God through cash donations by human men who sin like they were professionals at it we can at least enjoy some Cuban shredded beef, fried plantains, black beans and white rice,,,,,[email protected]

    Sometime hurt from your parents goes deep and that anger never goes away no matter how old you get. Letting himself vent through his music doesn’t make him bad it makes him a true artist that lets himself bleed into his art. I honestly didn’t like the type of music when he first came out but I heard my son listening to it and I felt some of the same feelings. Now am a fan and always will be. Shit happens, this is how he lets it out. Deal with it.
