EXCLUSIVE: Rev. Jesse Jackson Says Mel Gibson 'Has Fundamental Character Flaw'

RadarOnline, Thursday, July 1, 2010, 11:39am (PDT)

In an exclusive statement to RadarOnline.com, Reverend Jesse Jackson slammed Mel Gibson's racist rant.

"Mel Gibson's outburst demonstrates once again that we are far from a society that is 'beyond race and racism.' His penchants for anti-Semitic and racist diatribes reveal the actor's fundamental character flaw. He needs help.  But as a society we must redouble our efforts to combat racism and eradicate racial inequalities wherever they may exist," said Reverend Jackson.

RadarOnline.com broke the world exclusive story that Mel Gibson unleashed a racist tirade against Oksana, the mother of his infant daughter Lucia.  "You're an embarrassment to me," Mel tells her in an audio recording. "You look like a f---ing pig in heat, and if you get raped by a pack of n---ers, it will be your fault."

Following his 2006 arrest for suspicion of drunk driving, Mel spewed bizarre anti-Semitic remarks to the cops.

"F----ing Jews... The Jews are responsible for all the wars in the world," Mel said.

He also allegedly told a female officer, "What do you think you're looking at, sugar t*ts?"

Mel apologized after the remarks sparked worldwide outrage for the actor.
