That is how those recorded phone calls by Mel Gibson to his ex-girlfriend Oksana Grigorieva are characterized.
And yes, they are obscene and racist. But nothing more? I'm not convinced. Count how many times c**t is used in them, for example. Indeed, Gibson's anger is totally focused on the ways that a woman can be bad and what a good woman would be like.
