Talent agency William Morris has dropped Mel Gibson from its roster after his racist rant toward ex-girlfriend Oksana Grigorieva was leaked. Gibson’s agent, Ed Limato, actually passed away last week, and William Morris’ head honcho, Ari Emmanuel (the inspiration behind Entourage‘s Ari Gold, just so you know what we’re dealing with here) decided that that, coupled with Gibson’s racist rants, was more than enough to give Gibson the boot. Emmanuel has long held a grudge against Gibson, ever since his anti-Semitic tirade from days of yore.
We’re certain that now that the vitriolic tapes have been released to the public (you can listen to all the racist evilness and the screaming, wheezing threats at RadarOnline if you can stomach it), pretty much everyone is going to turn their back on Mel. Gibson is also being investigated by the L.A. District Attorney’s office as a result of the abuse claims by Grigorieva who, we have to admit, in spite of everything (including being on the other end of the famous phone calls) has appeared calm throughout this ordeal.
