This is something that irritated me when he was pulled over by the cops and went off on the Jews. Everyone excused him because he was drunk. I'm sorry, but I have been slobbering drunk more than once in my life (but not for many years now ) and I have NEVER started ranting about Jews, blacks, Scottish, Catholics, or any other group of people. I've never seen anyone else do it when they got drunk, either. Unless that weird anger and intolerance is in you to begin with, its not going to come spewing out just because you're drunk. The alcohol didn't make him say anything. It just acted as a truth serum so he could say the things he believes anyway. The man is an incurable bigot and now we discover he's also an abuser. It wouldn't surprise me if his first wife and all his children were abused. I can't imagine that hitting a woman in the face while holding a child is such a big leap from hitting the child instead. I think he'd benefit from a nice long stay in jail for this mess. I'll never be able to see him the same way in a movie.Originally Posted by Kao;3972794;
That being said, I listened to a few minutes of the tapes. I absolutely think she said something to get him ranting because her whole demeanor seems suspicious to me. Still, I don't even care. If that wasn't in him to begin with, she wouldn't be able to provoke it out of him. She'd obviously been a victim to his nasty side in the past and knew that no one would believe that a beloved actor would do such a thing. So what if she set him up to get some proof on her side? I say good for her that she's showing the world who he really is.
