In just a few days Mel Gibson was offered the chance to cameo in "The Hangover" sequel and then had that offer disappear after the cast and crew voiced their objections. Liam Neeson ended up replacing Gibson as a tattoo artist.

Now, NY Post is reporting that Gibson is angry and confused regarding why he lost the role. A source close to the actor said: "He doesn't understand why Mike Tyson, a drug user who turned his life around, was given a chance while Mel was kicked to the curb. Everybody deserves a second chance."

In addition to being a drug user, Tyson is also a convicted rapist, but all that happened roughly 20 years ago. Gibson's actions may be mild by comparison, but they took place very recently and he was able to insult women, Jews, Mexicans and black people.

Alan Nierob, a publicist who represents Gibson and Neeson, issued a statement expressing his resentment over the firing. He quipped that Neeson will replace Gibson "pending clearance of cast and crew background check."
Phillips says the move to replace Gibson with Liam Neeson was business as usual.

"Someone was doing me a favor to come in for a two-minute cameo, and we changed it," Phillips says. "It wasn't like we fired somebody. [Gibson] was just doing a favor from the beginning."But the back-and-forth certainly caused a stir. Shortly after news of Gibson's cameo as a Bangkok tattoo artist emerged, Phillips announced the appearance was cancelled. Then there was speculation that Hangover star Zach Galifianakis was leading the call for Gibson to be cut from the movie after the comedian gave an interview to a comedy podcast suggesting there were problems on the Hangover 2 set.
