As you may have heard, Mel Gibson was all set to make a cameo appearance in The Hangover 2 as a tattooist. However, almost immediately, protests from cast and crew meant that Gibson was dumped in favour of Liam Neeson.
Now, Gibson is obviously notorious now for being both allegedly abusive to his girlfriend and for being generally racist. But The Hangover was notorious for including a cameo by Mike Tyson, who actually was convicted and sentenced to jail for three years for raping Desiree Washington.
So slightly serious question of the week:
Was it right or hypocritical (or both) for The Hangover 2 to cancel Mel Gibson’s cameo? Or does being a racist trump being a rapist?
