Neeson has since apologized for his racist comments, telling "Good Morning America" on Tuesday, "I'm not racist", he said. And I don't say that sneeringly: we all know that Neeson lost his wife, Natasha Richardson, in a tragic skiing accident 10 years ago. "But I did learn a lesson from it, when I eventually thought, 'What the f-k are you doing, ' you know?"
She said: "People walk around sometimes with rage, that's what happens". "Is he a bigot? No".
In an interview with Vanity Fair, Rodriguez said: "Racists don't make out with the race that they hate". "Liam Neeson is not a racist". 'Dude, have you watched Widows? "It's all f*ckin' b*llshit", the Fast and Furious star remarked, pointing out that Liam was even making out with Viola Davis in Widows.
The 2009 track was written about the far-right British National Party (BNP) and includes the lyrics: "You're just some racist who can't tie my laces".
Lily also slammed Liam's "disgusting racist anecdote" and insisted she didn't believe it was true because she doesn't think men every try to "defend the honour" of women close to them. "The lady journalist was asking, 'How do you tap into that?,' and I remembered an incident almost 40 years ago when a friend of mine was brutally raped". It's all bullshit. Ignore it.
And I truly love how hard he pushes back on folks like DL Hughley, 50 Cent and other men filled with toxic masculinity who try to use what he's been through as the butt of their exhausted jokes. You admitted this. I give you credit there.
He continued, "I went up and down areas with a cosh, hoping I'd be approached by somebody".
"It shocked me and it hurt me ..."
Joking about Christopher Plummer replacing Kevin Spacey in All The Money In The World in the wake of the latter being accused of shocking sex abuse, a third person wrote: "I guess Sony pictures will soon be hiring Christopher Plummer to replace Liam Neeson in the upcoming Men In Black reboot".
However, the red carpet for the screening was canceled just hours before arrivals were to begin in the wake of the Neeson's racially charged comments he recently made during an interview with the Independent. "I know I do it". He reiterated why he told the story in the first place - to contribute to the conversation of racism in hopes to help? - and he also explained feeling remorse and seeing a priest to confess. "This was almost 40 years ago".
