The UCLA Bruins opened their brand new Pauley Pavilion with an 86-59 win over Indiana State Saturday night, which means that NCAA Men’s Basketball is underway and people can begin pretending like anything matters before March. But the actual reason that I’m bringing this up is that once-celebrated star of awesome movies like Braveheart, Lethal Weapon 1-3 (4 never happened) and the wildly underrated Payback, Mel Gibson, was in attendance with his son, because what the hell else is a guy who destroyed his career gonna do on a Saturday night?
Of course, because he’s been branded as a psychopathic, woman-beating, anti-Semitic, racist in recent years, people don’t necessarily like Gibson that much. That’s why it shouldn’t surprise anyone that his reception by Bruins fans was less than warm.
During a stoppage in play the Lethal Weapon(s) star was featured on the new HD jumbotrons hanging over center court, in a montage of notable attendees.

He also apparently looked directly at the camera to inform the video crew that the people were booing him by saying, “They’re booing me.” My, how the mighty have fallen. In fact, Gibson has fallen so far that people also just assume that he’s a total creeper perv. For instance, here’s a sentence that Jersey Chaser included about Gibson’s seat location, near the visiting team’s bench and neck deep in angry fan territory.
Some would argue is a fair trade off for being close enough to touch/poke a UCLA cheerleaders cheeks.
You see, Gibson is allegedly a scumbag, so he would probably try to poke a cheerleader’s ass in front of thousands of people. I believe that is the implication there. But let’s take it a step further with our friends from the Daily Mail, who ran this headline about Gibson’s game attendance:
“Keeping his eyes OFF the ball: Mel Gibson can't help himself as he ogles cheerleaders at the basketball”
It’s okay, I always forget to finish
As for the alleged ogling of this UCLA dancer, let’s examine the pictures that the Daily Mail provided as evidence.
This is just blatant. Look at the way he's staring directly at this Bruins dancer's chest from behind her. I mean, he's not even trying to be nonchalant.
What's remarkable about a pervert like Gibson is that he has trained his eyes to appear like they're looking one way while he's actually looking another. In this case, he's pretending to look at the video screen, but his eyes are locked in on her chest yet again. Shameless.
This one is even more remarkable, because Gibson is showing just how incredibly trained his pervert gaze is. His ability to look all the way to his left while actually staring at this girl's ass reveals that he is a black belt ass-watcher.
Mel might as well just shove his face right down this poor girl's shirt at this point. It's insulting how obvious he is.
