Mel Gibson: I feel sorry for Tiger Woods

Hollywood leading man
and tabloid lightning rod Mel Gibson told Britian's The Daily Mail that the Tiger Woods scandal has been overblown and has diverted attention from more
important news events.'I feel sorry for Tiger Woods,' he
says. 'Why are we talking about this when we're sending 30,000 more
troops to Afghanistan? You've got this history-changing event going on
and we're talking about Tiger's private life and golf injuries. He's
being used as a diversion and it just drives me crazy. You come out
savaged. I just think, 'Who cares?' 
Gibson speaks from experience. The
Australian actor is a gossip-column mainstay and became the first of
TMZ's celebrity scalps when the upstart entertainment news organization
reported that Gibson made anti-Semetic remarks after being arrested for
suspected drunk driving in California in 2006. Gibson later apologized
for his comments, and he has some advice for weathering difficult times which might apply to Woods as well."Nobody is without sin. You have to
try to make amends if you can. You have to shut up and move on and not
whine about it. And you have to deal with it like a man."
"And that's it," Mel Gibson says.
"Whatever fallout comes from it, be it fair or unfair, you've just got
to accept your own culpability. The minute you start whining, it's
ridiculous."
