Yet another Mel Gibson rant has gone viral.

This time, it’s Mel Gibson screaming at screenwriter Joe Eszterhas. The recording was via the screenwriter’s 15-year-old son who was staying with the two in December.

Back in December, the family of Eszterhas was staying at the Oscar-winner’s home in Costa Rica when he went into a violent rant, after allegedly looking at a photo of himself and child Lucia.

The rant that allegedly features Gibson was later obtained by TheWrap and has since been released to the public.

The recording is a little over two minutes long and is full of profanity directed at the screenwriter and reportedly Gibson’s ex-girlfriend Oksana Grigorieva. TheWrap also provided a transcript of the rant .

“Why don’t I have a first draft of “The Maccabees?” he reportedly screams,”What the f*** have you been doing?”

“I am earning money for a filthy little c********* who takes advantage of me!” a man believed to be Gibson is heard screaming. “Just like every m***********!”

“So hurry the f*** up!”

During his rant Gibson reportedly throws things around and screams in the face of his guests, “Who wants to eat? Who the f*** wants to eat? Go have something to eat, hurrayyyyy…” before running toward the driveway and driving off.

Gibson’s rep declined to comment on the recording but may be facing legal action. Celebrity gossip site TMZ noted that the actor is looking into whether or not the recording violated any laws in Costa Rica of recording without knowing.

Eszterahas told TheWrap that he released the recording after Gibson called him a liar followed a letter published on TheWrap accusing Gibson of hating Jews, threatening violence against his ex and using him to deflect Gibson’s anti-Semetic reputation, reported ABC.

In 2006 during a DUI incident, Gibson, who was behind biblically-based movie “The Passion of the Christ” made anti-Semetic statements. He later apologized and planned to create a film based on Jewish heroism called “The Maccabees.”

Check out what Eszterahas has to say about the incident.
