This is my entry in Velvet Verbosity's 100-Word Challenge, hosted by LouCeel here.
I have to wonder. What causes a celebrity to self-destruct?
Is fame too heavy a mantle wear 24-7? Is it uncomfortable rattling around in a 7000 sq. ft. house? Or cumbersome driving a big Lexus? They can be so hard to park.
Take Mel Gibson. Here’s a guy who seemingly had it all. Then one day several years ago, he opened his mouth, and began shooting himself in the foot. His ammunition of choice? Anti-semitism. Racism. And most recently, domestic abuse.
It seems Mr. Gibson has been carrying an unconcealed lethal weapon. And he’s using it to commit professional suicide.
