Mel Gibson’s name started trending on Twitter on Monday after a new Braveheart statue was unveiled.
The American actor – who starred in the lead role in the 1995 film as well as directing it – wasn’t at the unveiling ceremony at Brechin City FC’s new home in Glebe Park, Scotland, so we may never know what he thinks of the statue.
However, lots of other people had lots of thoughts...
Mel portrayed 13th century warrior William Wallace in the movie, which depicted the life of Wallace leading the Scots in the First War of Scottish Independence against King Edward I of England.
The film also starred Sophie Marceau, Patrick McGoohan and Catherine McCormack.
It was nominated for 10 Oscars and ended up winning five at the 1995 Academy awards, including Best Director for Mel Gibson.
