The famous actor and director Mel Gibson is in a leftist backlash, simply because a video surfaced online of the actor attending the UFC ppv over the weekend. Yeah, Mel went to UFC 264 which had Poirier vs. McGregor 3 as the main event. The short video that surfaced the internet showed Donald Trump walking through the crowd with of course, Dana White in front of him. Mel was in the crowd himself, close by to Trump and when it appears that Trump stopped to face Mel, the actor saluted the former president.
That sends the leftist internet in an uproar, sure enough. The internet went crazy about it.
The thing is, Mel being a possible conservative is nothing new. While the actor dropped a few hints of his conservative views here and there over the years, he has never really went public about his political views. I think he just dropped even more hints that he maybe conservative and hiding in the “conservative” closet. Mel just gave even more clues that he maybe a Trump supporter as well.
Of course, Mel is getting attacked for it pretty badly. Believe it or not, there are many more conservative actors out there… they just don’t go public with their conservative views ’cause they’re afraid their acting careers would come to an end ’cause of it. If actors publicly came out as conservative… no agencies would sign them, studios wouldn’t work with them and neither would directors. I remember James Woods saying on twitter that he doesn’t really work in Hollywood anymore ’cause he came out as conservative and all that stuff. The Star Wars, “Mandalorian” actress Gina Carano just got cancelled from that show ’cause of her conservative views.
I find nothing wrong with Mel being conservative and like I repeatedly said there are plenty more out there. I wish they would all speak out more, though ’cause they really need to fight back at leftist Hollywood.
I like Mel Gibson, always been a fan of his work. Sure, he’s done some and said some terrible things in the past but I believe in this thing called “forgive and forget”. Well, not many believes in that anymore. There are too many assholes out there who don’t believe in forgiveness… well I do. We all make mistakes, we’re human.
Anyway, Mel’s a cool cat, I find nothing wrong with him in my eyes and I just love that he’s a big UFC fan too. Mel’s made a mistake in the past, he learned from them and got himself better over the years so get over it y’all but of course, most people never will.
