Actor Mel Gibson, 65, was spotted violating California’s strict coronavirus protocols. The actor was photographed outside at a playground in Malibu without wearing a mask. The controversial actor was accused of entitlement by flouting California’s regulations when he was babysitting his youngest children and speaking to other mask-less parents at the elite playground.
Gibson did not seem to care that he was violating the state’s coronavirus precautions. Instead, he spent his time relaxing and chatting with other parents while ignoring social distancing guidelines. In the photographs from his outing to the Malibu playground, Gibson was wearing sweat pants and a flannel shirt under a navy blue jacket. He also wore a baseball hat to keep his head warm.
In addition to his casual clothing, Gibson also wore an unkempt salt-and-pepper beard. He also kept his mouth open – showing off his white teeth – while speaking to the other Malibu parents and networking with other elites in the area.
Gibson is a prolific father with nine children from three different women. His children include, according to Daily Mail, Hannah Gibson, 41, Christian Gibson & Edward Gibson, 38, William Gibson, 36, Louis Gibson, 33, Milo Gibson, 31, Thomas Gibson, 22, Lucia Gibson, 11, and Lars Gibson, four.
The playground was near the location where Mel Gibson went on his infamous 2006 anti-Semitic tirade. He was arrested for driving while under the influence when he attacked Jewish people with harsh words and criticisms.
Gibson, originally from Australia, has been able to navigate the coronavirus pandemic with relative ease, given his access and wealth. Although California had a stay-at-home order in place until two days before the Malibu playground incident, it is unclear if Gibson was flouting those rules as well.
Although California is trying to reopen its economy, residents are supposed to continue social distancing and wearing masks to help slow the spread of the deadly virus.
Not only was Mel Gibson mask-less at the playground, he flagrantly ignored social distancing guidance. Because the other parents were interacting with a famous movie star, they were probably more likely to risk their health and wellness for a chance to chat it up with Gibson. However, all parties were put at increased risk of spreading the coronavirus because they did not remain far enough from each other to prevent the spread of droplets that could contain tiny virus particles.
Although Gibson was hospitalized for COVID-19 in 2020, he does not seem to be taking the threat that seriously. Gibson was among some of the first victims of COVID-19 in America when he contracted it back in April 2020. Gibson spent an entire week in the hospital and was treated with anti-viral medication.
Despite rumors, it is possible to become reinfected with COVID-19, according to the latest data from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention. Additionally, there are new variants that originated in the United Kingdom, South Africa, and Brazil that are more contagious than the original coronavirus.
