The great Mel Gibson Image Rehab Tour of 2016 continued on The Late Show Tuesday night, when Gibson did a segment asking "big questions" with Stephen Colbert in which he said that he would tell his younger self to "shut the fuck up." Though there may be many instances when Gibson believes he should have zipped his lips, the obvious reference here is to the anti-Semitic hate speech Gibson infamously spewed in 2006 after he was arrested for drunk driving. Recently, Gibson has also referred to that incident as "a dim thing in the past" and said that it was "annoying" that people continue to bring it up. A bare minimum of self-awareness makes up for everything, right?
