Schwarzenegger compares Mel Gibson to oil leak
SACRAMENTO, Calif. — The Terminator is taking a few shots at the Road Warrior.
Gov. Arnold Schwarzenegger wise-cracked about Mel Gibson on Wednesday, comparing him to the Gulf of Mexico oil leak.
Schwarzenegger told a group of utility commissioners in Sacramento that while BP appears to have contained its well, “no one has figured out how to contain Mel Gibson.”
A celebrity website has posted audio recordings of what it says are Gibson’s profanity-laced tirades against his ex-girlfriend.
Schwarzenegger also told participants to turn off their cell phones “because we are expecting a call from him.”
Gibson spokesman Alan Nierob says he is happy to hear that Schwarzenegger is maintaining a sense of humor, adding, “He’s obviously paving the way for a return to showbiz.”
