Where to begin...Gibson's 2004 film "The Passion of the Christ" got plenty of attention for its deviation from Biblical text and possible anti-Semitic undertones, and he was also accused by GLAAD of being homophobic in 1991.

Tapes of an incensed Gibson spouting racially insensitive insults at Grigorieva surfaced, and the actor is still recovering from a dizzying drop in public esteem.
