Mel Gibson, the renowned actor, and director, has recently been embroiled in an internet rumor suggesting he's crafting a four-part docuseries exposing the global child sex trafficking market, an issue estimated to be worth $34 billion​​. These rumors, however, stand against explicit denials from Gibson's representatives, leading to significant debate online about the veracity of these claims.

The rumors first appeared on social media platforms, with Twitter accounts like Leading Report and Matt Wallace (@mattwallace888), hinting at Gibson's involvement in such a project​​. These posts quickly gained traction, with supporters of Gibson and those hoping for a more prominent spotlight on child trafficking issues expressing enthusiasm for the potential series. Some even suggested this docuseries could significantly impact global human trafficking if it materializes​.

Notably, Gibson's history of supporting anti-sex-trafficking charity Operation Underground Railroad (O.U.R.) appears to add some credibility to these rumors​. In fact, Tim Ballard, the founder of O.U.R., had previously spoken at a conference about Gibson's passion for his charity and his involvement in the editing process of Ballard's movie, "Sound of Freedom." However, no official confirmation from Gibson or O.U.R. has been made about Gibson's participation in the alleged docuseries​​.

Despite these rumors circulating since January 2023, both Gibson and his representatives have remained silent on this matter. Gibson's representative has explicitly denied these reports, stating that they are not accurate​​. Furthermore, skeptics have raised questions about the reliability of the sources propelling the rumors, noting Matt Wallace's bio and track record of questionable posts on Twitter​​.

This isn't the first time Gibson has been at the center of such rumors. Earlier this year, he was purportedly directing a documentary about the Rothschild family, which was later debunked by his representatives​​.

While the debate about Gibson's involvement in a child trafficking docuseries continues to swirl online, it's important to approach these rumors with a healthy level of skepticism. The reality of such a significant project would likely not stay hidden for long, and official confirmation from Gibson or his representatives would surely follow.
