(Newser) – If the latest Mel Gibson tirade, reported this morning (Oksana Grigorieva “f***ing deserved” to get punched…twice), isn’t enough to kill his career…this one should do it. Gibson, of course already famous for his anti-Semitic remarks and another tape in which he uses the N-word, completed the trifecta by insulting Mexicans in Radar’s latest tape.

Gibson can reportedly be heard telling Grigorieva, in reference to one of his staffers he wants to turn in to immigration authorities, “I will report her to the f**king people that take f**king money from the wetbacks.” Note to Mel: it’s probably time to just stop talking.
