Gibson admits to punching Oksana Grigorieva

The bitter public feud between Mel Gibson and Oksana Grigorieva has gotten even more salacious and repugnant, as the much maligned actor has been caught on tape admitting to physically abusing his former girlfriend- while she was holding their 8-month-old child.

Gibson has been in the news lately for his racist rants aimed at Grigorieva, and a taped message from Gibson to the woman was released where he said:

“You’re an embarrassment to me.

“You look like a f***ing pig in heat, and if you get raped by a pack of n***ers, it will be your fault.”

And added:

“How dare you act like such a b***h when I have been so f***ing nice.

“I am going to come and burn the f***ing house down… but you will blow me first.”

Not surprisingly, the tirades didn’t do much to rehabilitate Gibson’s already tarnished image, and a newly released rant is not going to do the actor any favors. According to RadarOnline, on the recording, Gibson unabashedly admits to striking Grigorieva while she held their infant daughter Lucia:

On tape, a teary Oksana is heard asking Mel, “What kind of a man is that who would hit a woman when she is holding a child in her hands, hitting her twice in the face?

“What kind of a man is that?” the Russian musician repeats.

The Braveheart star responds: “You know what — you f**cking deserved it.”

Gibson’s recent rants are not the only instances of racist, sexist or otherwise-ist behavior the star has exhibited in recent years. He railed against Jews at a 2006 traffic stop for a DUI, and called a female officer “sugartits.”
