Liam Neeson is under fire after the actor recently admitted to wanting to kill a black person after one of his family members was raped.
Liam Neeson’s comments were taken from an interview, published by The Independent on Monday. In the interview Neeson explained that around 40 years ago, one of his close female friends told him she had been raped. That friend, Neeson added, died five years ago.
Neeson stated: “I had never felt this feeling before which was a primal urge to lash out, and I asked her, ‘did you know the person, was it a man?’ No. ‘Race?’ She said it was a black man.”
Neeson then said he “went out deliberately into black areas in the city looking to be set upon so that I could unleash physical violence”.

The ‘Taken’ star also stated he would have acted in the same way if his friend’s assailant had been white.
Neeson told ABC’s Good Morning America: “I’m not racist.” He explained: “If she had said an Irish or a Scot or a Brit or a Lithuanian I would – I know I would – have had the same effect. I was trying to show honour, to stand up for my dear friend in this terribly medieval fashion.”
Neeson said of his actions: “It shocked me and it hurt me. I did seek help.” The actor said he went to confession, and went power walking for two hours every day, to try to work through his anger.
However as usual, Social Justice Warriors (SJW) (who have way more to hide) took to their sticky keyboards in an attempt to ruin a person’s life for something they did years ago and admitted it was wrong.
What is comical is that there was nothing really said when Mark Wahlberg literally beat the eye sight from an Asian man.
I seem to remember that Mark Wahlberg actually *did* what Liam Neeson now ruefully admits having thought about doing. Somehow he gets a free pass: pic.twitter.com/HRcR2AU16z— Graeme Wood (@gcaw) February 5, 2019
Much like when social media attacked Kevin Hart for his past homophobic comments, they do this in an attempt to bring some sort of relevancy to their sad lives. These are the same people who also do not say a peep about Amy Schumer, Chelsea Handler or Sarah Silverman’s, use of homophobic slurs. There is no validity to what these anonymous accounts say and it is time that industries stop being afraid of these phantom boycotts they threaten because the reality is, they really don’t care.
Liam Neeson in a heartfelt interview stated that an emotional trauma made him feel unjustly prejudiced against black people, but he came to his senses, realised his gross error of judgement, and learned from it.— Jonathan Pie (@JonathanPieNews) February 5, 2019
