Red Carpet For Liam Neeson’s New Movie Canceled After He Claimed He Once Wanted To Kill Black People
Neeson has since apologized for his racist comments, telling "Good Morning America" on Tuesday, "I'm not racist", he said.
Later that day the red carpet for the NY premiere of his latest action thriller Cold Pursuitwas cancelled, though the screening itself went ahead.
Now that assault that happened was over 40 years ago but people were still wondering why Neeson wanted to do those terrible things. On Twitter he says, "When I was a 19-year-old undergraduate in college some friends suggested we attend a party dressed like rappers".
"I was trying to show honour to and stand up for my dear friend in this bad medieval fashion".
He said: "There were some nights I went out deliberately into black areas looking to be set upon so that I could unleash physical violence".
"What they're actually saying is, "This is how you should feel", and for me, I find that insulting, condescending because there's no way Piers Morgan or Susanna could ever know what it's like to feel black or how they would react had they been black".
Liam admitted he sought help for his violent feelings and added: "I did seek help". The bigotry. One Catholic would be killed, the next day a protestant would be killed.
Activist Tariq Nasheed also said, "If a Black actor said he wanted to get revenge on random white people because of the injustices done by people who believe in white supremacy, he would be labeled a Black Identity Extremists and he would be placed on every Federal Bureau of Investigation watch list". "I asked him how someone could come to think the way Neeson did, because I couldn't fathom reacting in a similar fashion".
"I did it four, maybe four or five times until I caught myself and it really shocked me, this primal urge".
Neeson denied he was racist during a subsequent US TV appearance on Tuesday, attributing his behaviour to "a primal urge to lash out". "It shocked me. It hurt me".
