Liam Neeson Can't Be Racist Because Of His Kisses, Michelle Rodriguez Says

Liam Neeson Can't Be Racist Because Of His Kisses, Michelle Rodriguez Says

Whoopi Goldberg has insisted Liam Neeson isn't racist in light of his recent controversial interview.

The logic of Rodriguez's argument has caused a lot of debate though.

"I really hope it's not too late to digitally erase that racist f**k Liam Neeson from the new Men In Black movie", wrote one Twitter user. Liam Neeson is not a racist, ' the Fast And The Furious star told Vanity Fair.

"It's all f***in' bullsh**t". 'Dude, have you watched Widows?

But in Rodriguez's eyes, Neeson can't be a racist for the way he made out with Viola Davis in the 2018 film "Widows", where they play husband and wife.

"You get those calls at night, and you think 'Is this a spam call?', but it turned out to be a real call."
It shocked me and it hurt me.

As previously reported, Neeson told a United Kingdom newspaper that decades ago he walked the streets with a "cosh" multiple times, hoping any black person would start trouble with him.

Calls for the Irish actor's banishment from the hit franchise erupted after an interview he gave with The Independent went viral, during which he opened up about some dark demons he wrestled with 40 years ago upon learning of a loved one's rape.

Now, Christian Horner feels that Max is the driver that both Lewis and Sebastian fear the most, because of the aggressive driving skills that he possesses.

"I don't know a woman who hasn't been harassed and I have never heard of an instance where a man has actually gone out to defend her honour".

It didn't take long for the interview to make the rounds, and it was was met with so much backlash that the Cold Pursuit red carpet premiere was nixed. This all comes after Liam caused quite a bit of a stir on social media and in the traditional media when he explained his racist thoughts against black men at a much earlier point in his life. "I'm not sure if he's so remorseful of telling the story or of the actual action of wanting to exact revenge, exact violence against a black person".

Clemence Michallon, a writer for The Independent, said in an op-ed today, February 7, that she had not expected to receive such a response from Neeson during the press junket for his movie "Cold Pursuit" held three weeks ago in NY. I asked her, 'Did you know the person?' 'No.' 'His race?' She said he was a black man. I was out of the country and when I came back she told me about this.

Actor Terry Crews also commented on the controversy saying in a tweet: "I believe that every person on earth is capable of the greatest good, or unspeakable evil".

Liam Neeson appears on "Good Morning America," Feb. 5, 2019.

Neeson told the Independent he armed himself with a cosh weapon, hoping someone "would have a go" at him so he could kill them, but he quickly felt ashamed by his behavior and sought help from a priest.

"I was trying to show honour to and stand up for my dear friend in this awful medieval fashion".
