Mel Gibson

Mel Gibson

After his racist and misogynistic rants, you’d think Mel Gibson wouldn’t have too many friends left in Hollywood.  However, Whoopi Goldberg came to the defense of her former co-star, saying that she knows him personally, and that, while he is a bonehead, he’s not racist.  Discussing that time in 2006 when Mel went off on a police officer during a DUI arrest, Whoopi said, “Drunks say stupid stuff to people all the time because they’re drunk.  They’re out of control.  They are not thinking they are idiotic.  That’s why I don’t like alcohol…” [Celebitchy]
