Being a celebrity definitely is not the easiest thing in the world. You are constantly stormed by the paparazzi and there are always people trying to take pictures with you and harass you. While most celebrities are able to deal with these problems, some simply can’t and end up snapping.
Here is a list of 13 celebrities known for flipping out and having serious anger management issues.
Mel Gibson is one of those guys that seems like a good person on screen. He has played a lot of roles where he is plenty nice, and that’s probably why a lot of people are surprised by his anger issues. However, the famed actor definitely has anger issues. Not only that, but he’s also been known to be not only extremely racist, but homophobic as well.
One of his darkest moments was when he was arrested for driving under the influence. Instead of just going to the police station and getting bailed out eventually, the situation escalated quickly. When the police officer approached Gibson, he was met with a terrible anti-Semitic rant spilling out of the stars mouth.
He complained that the Jews were responsible for all of the wars in the world, even though we can’t really figure out what that has to do with the fact that he had too much to drink and decided to drive home. Some people who watched The Passion of the Christ might have seen this coming, since this movie, which was directed by Gibson as well, was criticized for the way in which it negatively depicted the Jewish people.
Gibson also has a history of domestic abuse as well. There is that famed tape of Gibson arguing with his ex-wife, calling her a gold digger, whore and many other slurs not fit for print. Oh yeah, he also threatened to burn down her home in that conversation as well. Whatever happened to the good cop from all those Lethal Weapon movies? It seems that Gibson is losing his nerves as much as he’s losing his hair. Too bad, he was quite the likeable character on screen most of the time.
