Then he has a duty to remove it to limit public scandal as a priest who made himself into a public figure.  It is very easy to do so.  Request your password and delete the account.

Look at the films he was making.  Hollywood people are nearly always compromised, because they chase fame and money and hang around with such degenerate scum who seek and can grant favours.

But that's what makes Gibson so bizarre.  He frequently spouts off against homosexuals and Jews, when the industry is run by homosexuals and Jews.  Rather than compromising himself, he makes himself a Hollywood pariah.  He is guilty of acting in popular dreck, but he makes it difficult for himself to get hired by repeatedly coming out with his traditional Catholic ideas in interviews, and looking like a retrograde bigot.  A compromised person would apostatize, or else modify their Christianity to liberal Christian, and see the Jews as "elder brothers in the faith" and conclude that the biblical injunctions against homosexuality are mistranslations, or rhetorical condemnations of Greek pederasty or pagan sex magic, not homosexuality per se.  Whereas Gibson publicly and stubbornly endorses the Church's traditional teachings on everything.  His oddity is that he just doesn't seem to think the sixth commandment applies to him.

Good enough.  Traditionally, the Church forbade acting as a profession for Christians, but that was laxed over time, as were the early strictures against dancing.
If traditional Catholics like to call themselves "trads", in the context of a Catholic forum, that is fine usually.

But it is a matter for Catholics only to discuss.

Unless he converted back in the last week then no.

https://www.dailymail.co.uk/tvshowbiz/article-9963335/Mel-Gibson-snaps-photos-son-Lars-four-family-day-Malibu-Chili-Cook-Off.html

He is still living with Roselind Ross who is younger than his youngest daughter.

And who lets a 4 year old boy have hair that long?

Let's get over this. Mel is a fallen away Catholic. Even his dress in the dailymail tells you in no uncertain terms that he is not following Christ. The man needs tons of prayers.

I would never allow him or his "family" around my family.

With his money and influence I doubt he needs to get "hired".  He buys a script and develops it with his own production company and the resources of investors who don't care what media Jews think.  Jews don't all work together as a cabal to shun his work.  If  Gibson produces a commercially successful movie and they know it will put bums on seats, then in the end they want the money or another theatre will get it.  Jew or Gentile they all love money.


A compromised person would apostatize.  Whereas Gibson publicly and stubbornly endorses the Church's traditional teachings on everything.  His oddity is that he just doesn't seem to think the sixth commandment applies to him.

That is easy enough to explain, he used to be highly attractive and nobody wants to get older and lose the powers they had in their youth.  Worth several hundred million dollars he can get women to hop into his bed who would not otherwise, if he wasn't rich and famous.  If she acts like a quasi "wife" and he does not think about it too much then he only has to trouble his conscience at confession time.  He pays the salary of the priest who hears his confession so that priest is charitable and admonishes him and tells him to do better, repeatedly.

Mel thinks, if Emperor Constantine can do it so can I.  Success does tend to make people think like megalomaniacs.

In short, he very probably regrets leaving his wife and 7 children, I am sure he does, but Robyn is not taking him back and he needs the female company.  That is a story as old as time itself.

So his own physical comfort and pleasure is more important to him than Christ.

Viola, a man on the road to hell.

He has a lot of company on that road.  Some of us are on it too.

And he knows he is on the road I think.  That is a big advantage when it comes to getting off it.

Unless he suddenly dies I would say his chances of a good confession are not that slim.
