First posted to TikTok on Monday, the footage shows Trump as he entered the T-Mobile area near Las Vegas for the UFC 264 event over the weekend, with Gibson briefly seen saluting him in the background.
The crazy thing is, you didn't even need to know why Mel Gibson was trending to know that he probably did something shitty.
Rest in hell to his dead career. pic.twitter.com/H8eMpA99dq

While there was initially some question as to whether it was really the Oscar-winning actor, other footage of the incident has since emerged giving a better view.
Yup it’s Mel Gibson pic.twitter.com/0ELAtdiSbq

Mel Gibson Sends Twitter’s Radical Leftist Right off the Cliff
The liberal Mob was up in arms that Gibson would dare to acknowledge the former commander-in-chief.
Some claimed that his salute came as no surprise given the filmmaker’s previous controversies.
It's a drag that Mel Gibson "saluted" #45, but two things:
1) He's done worse.
2) He outright refused to endorse #45 in 2016 and criticized his attack on POWs. There's still no context for this "salute".

Mel Gibson is who we thought he was.

I see Mel Gibson's trending because he's still a racist lunatic.

For those liberals that still have some gray matter left in their noggin, and many ‘right side of history’ Conservatives, just couldn’t comprehend why Mel Gibson’s salute triggered the liberal loony-toon cancel culture mob?
Why do we continue to make “Big” news out of some of the dumbest things ?
It’s really not that serious

Centrist Twitter losing their damn mins over Mel Gibson, uhh, saluting Trump is really hilarious to me. Like, it's July 2021 and who could possibly give a shit other than actual weirdos

I'm not a fan of #MelGibson or #DonaldTrump. But puzzled that Gibson apparently saluting Trump is somehow becoming news?!?! He can salute the sky or Prince of Darkness if he chooses to, no? Again, I find them both indefensible so I have no skin in the game. Just puzzled. pic.twitter.com/C0pwpblFij

Oh now people want to cancel Mel Gibson because he saluted Trump? That's not the only thing he's done that's been morally questionable tweeps.
For the record I like Mels acting and that won't change because of a salute to a former President of the United States

Others just call out BrooklynDad_Defiant! because this moron makes the Top 10 list of Twitter’s most triggered cancel culture mob members.
What planet are you on?? His career is still going strong! WHO THE HELL ARE YOU?

Mel Gibson is big enuff to make it on his own in Hollywood
The Passion of the Christ
Dude makes great movies that make tons of money for him & his investors

I may not agree with #MelGibson‘s politics but the man is entitled to his political beliefs. Nobody should knock at him for that. If he wants to support #Trump then according to our constitution he has every right to. I’m not going to cancel my favorite celebrity for his politics

Not sure his career is dead when he has 7 films in production. He just keeps getting hired

The guy is worth half billion $’s. He works when and if he wants to. He purposely chooses to live a quieter life. This year he bought an island in Fiji to stay away from all the knuckleheads out there ……you know people kind a like you.

He’s still doing well, is old enough to retire, and has enough money to never do anything again. pic.twitter.com/UYOp6AjBjK
