There’ at Least One Person Out There Still Not Convinced Mel Gibson Is Racist


And it's Whoopi Goldberg! Mel Gibson received an unexpected show of support Monday from the View co-host, who defended the actor after the release of the Tapes Heard 'Round the World.

“I don’t like what he did here,” Goldberg said, “But I know Mel and I know he’s not a racist.” When fellow co-host Joy Behar countered, “Well, that language certainly sounds racist to me,” Goldberg did not back down: “I can't sit and say that he's a racist, having spent time with him in my house with my kids … I can't say it."
