Mel Gibson Appears To Salute Donald Trump At UFC Fight, Gets KO’d On Twitter
Actor Mel Gibson stoked controversy after he appeared to salute ex-President Donald Trump during a UFC fight over the weekend.
Video going viral appears to show the Oscar-winning Hollywood star making a military-style gesture toward Trump as the former president entered the T-Mobile Arena in Las Vegas to a mix of cheers and boos before Conor McGregor’s loss to Dustin Poirier.
It’s unclear if Trump saw Gibson in the crowd, or whether Gibson was saluting Trump or responding to something else.
And this video of Gibson wanting a rematch:

Mel Gibson liking Trump is about as surprising as David Duke liking fabric softener.

Of course Mel Gibson would stand and salute Donald Trump as he entered a UFC competition in Las Vegas. That’s what one racist, misogynistic, homophobic, fascist does to another. Scum of the earth salutes scum of the earth. pic.twitter.com/g8s0ToVetw

Mel Gibson’s dishonorable salute just got him demoted to the D-List with Qevin Sorbo, Scott Baio, and Dean Cain.
