What do they know, anyway?



Tbdmel032607 Now that Oscar season is over, it occurs to us we havn’t heard from Mel Gibson lately. That’s okay, because TMZ provides. It seems the Apocalypto director was speaking to a film class at Cal State University at Northridge in the San Fernando Valley on Thursday when Alicia Estrada, an assistant professor of Central American Studies at CSUN, began badgering Gibson about his knowledge of Mayan culture. Estrada allegedly said Gibson’s portrayal of the Mayans wrong and racist, prompting Mel to eventually say, “Lady, f--- off.” And after audience members of Mayan heritage began to protest and were escorted out of the room, Gibson shouted after them, “Make your own movie!” Good to see the Lethal Weapon star’s inner insanity hasn’t completely died out.
