Like Mel Gibson said a handful of offensive WORDS while under the influence of alcohol but they banish him far longer then this sadistic trash who won't make them even half the money Mel could in his entire life.
The same thing happened to a lesser degree with Hasselhoff and Alec Baldwin, but they were forgiven. And this certainly isn't the first time Hollywood has covered things up. The studio system covered up a lot things, from actors being gay to thier drinking and drug habits (like Marilyn Monroe). And hollywood has been unnecessarily banishing people since before McCarthyism, and it exploded during that time because of that fucking bitch Hedda Hopper (and the Red Scare in general), who threatened anyone with that nonscience if they went against her. So, Hollywood has a hair trigger at separating themselves from anything that could affect thier bottom line when it comes to race, but anything about sexual assault (as seen with Bill Cosby and Michael Jackson, which was kept under the rug for 40+ years) that Hollywood could give two fucks about any kind of sexual assault.
And to be fair, Mel saying "sugar tits" isn't really offensive, its actually kind of funny. In addition to that, his comments after being arrested for DUI were blown out of proportion because
he's Mel Gibson. I did a ride along in high school in the middle of the night on a Friday into Saturday hoping to see some shit, and I did, and people getting arrested drunk shout some pretty nasty things, some of which were as offensive, if not worse than what Mel Gibson is reported to have said. The woman that the cop I was with arrested was beating her boyfriend with a pizza box (with the pizza sadly still in it) and a 2 Liter of Sprite, spouting about all sorts of rude and crazy shit. So, what Mel gibson did is no different than the average drunk/alcoholic, just because he was famous did it explode everywhere.
Also, I never really knew about Salva, or his convictions, but looking at a picture of him, he certainly looks like a pedo.
