Actor Mel Gibson was recently caught saluting former US President Donald Trump during a high-profile UFC match.
Twitter was on fire after cameras caught a clear glimpse of the controversial actor seated next to the nation’s former commander in chief. Therefore, as you can probably expect, the news did not go down too well with liberals as they slammed the actor for his behavior.
Comments such as ‘Nazis salute other Nazis” filled the air as this was definitely not a sight that many expected to witness.
In the past, Mel Gibson was renowned for showing a negative form of behavior against Trump with several prime public incidents known to have taken center stage. This includes how the actor expressed his great dismay when Trump announced his plans to create a wall on the southern border.
In addition, he never took out the time to appreciate Trump during the 2016 elections nor did he back him up by any means, unlike his fellow actor friends.
For this reason, the world was shocked to see him saluting Trump on Saturday where the duo attended a UFC match which was held near Las Vegas.
Gibson, who is renowned for several of his roles in top films such as ‘Braveheart’ and ‘The Patriot,’ appeared to make a military type of gesture towards Trump. And that when the former President passed through the crowd and began waving at the audience.
While the incident may have lasted a few seconds, it was clearly caught on camera and then shared online, leading to a widespread commentary from social media users, right after Conor McGregor’s suffered defeat against Dustin Poirier.
While the 65-year-old actor is yet to explain why he offered such a salute to Donald Trump publicly, he did however go about posting on his Twitter account how he was in attendance at the UFC match with his three sons that include Will, Tommy, and Ed.
