I don't follow the tabloid press....so I don' t know if the audio clips were from a cell phone voice mail, or stiched together. Also, I don't know if there were allegations of physical/emotional abuse with this woman.
However, much as I despise some of the stuff Gibson has done over the years...his anti-Semitism, his homophobia and more....I think what we hear here is not worthy of much comment.
That's because, I am willing to bet, some of us in anger have used profanities, or really hateful speech, to a boyfriend, girlfriend or loved one. That in itself doesn't mean much.
In fact, some couples have knock down, dragged out verbal fights in which strong language like this means absolutely nothing, but a catharsis.
Haven't any of you who are upset by this (unless you know that there was actual abuse) ever gotten so fed up with someone that you shouted, or screamed, "Shut the fuck up!!"?
