A taped rant that took place last December by Mel Gibson, which was released after the back and forth between him and “The Maccabees” screenwriter Joe Eszterhas over shutting down the film project, has gone viral.

Eszterhas himself released the tape that once again shows Gibson has no self-control after going on an angry, two and a half minute rant, with the movies two screenwriters Eszterhas and Randall Wallace about delays in having the script done.

The recording was made by Eszterhas’s 15-year-old son who was present at Gibson’s Costa Rica home when he exploded. In it, Gibson is heard yelling, “Why don’t I have a first draft of ‘The Maccabees’? What the [bleep] have you been doing?”

Gibson then turned his anger to his ex-girlfriend and daughters mother, Oksana Grigorieva by saying, “I am earning money for a filthy little [bleep]sucker who takes advantage of me!”

Reportedly, the house staff along with their children, were also witnesses to Gibson’s tirade.

Eszterhas wrote, “I’ve come to the conclusion that the reason you won’t make ‘The Maccabees’ is the ugliest possible one. You hate Jews.”
