Debate of the Day: Mel Gibson?

Alright, so I’m curious to hear your take on this. It’s now a news story that Mel Gibson was up for a cameo in The Hangover 2, much like Mike Tyson in the first film, but Zack Galifianakis protested so much, that the idea was eventually scrapped.

Mel has said and done some pretty horrible shit over the past few months and years, offending, Jews, blacks, women and regular people who aren’t misogynists or racists. But that being said, does Mel’s public persona affect the way you see him as an actor in movies? As in, can you watch a Mel Gibson movie now without thinking about all that stuff? And even if so, would you want to support him by attending one of his new films?

I’ve long held the belief that you should separate actors’ characters from their real life selves. All the Xenu nonsense and couch jumping isn’t going to make me enjoy Tom Cruise in Mission Impossible 4 any less. But is Mel a different case because his offenses were worse? I’m not sure, and I’m wondering what your guys’ opinion is on this. Let me know below.
