"Liam Neeson is not a racist", Rodriguez told Vanity Fair at the amfAR Gala New York Wednesday night.

"I never defended Liam Neeson". 'Dude, have you watched Widows? "His tongue was so far down Viola Davis" throat. "I believe that every person on earth is capable of the greatest good, or unspeakable evil".

Another user, @brownblaze, wrote, "This implies that these choices were somehow equal, ignoring how deep racist beliefs fuelled even the possibility that he could commit such an act on a (random), innocent person".

Liam sparked a huge outcry when he candidly admitted he understood his character in his latest film, 'Cold Pursuit's desire for revenge after he had deliberately gone looking for a fight with a black man because he was so desperate to "kill" someone after a female friend was raped.

He appears in promotional posters for the film alongside co-stars Chris Hemsworth and Tessa Thompson - prompting scores of memes mocking Neeson's part in the role to fill the web.

The controversy surrounding Liam Neeson's racist remarks doesn't appear to be slowing down. It shocked me and it hurt me. "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".

He said the incident happened many decades ago.

Basically, it remains to be seen both where Big Spain fits in with the Raptors and how his offensive skills will be utilized. Ujiri made two moves just prior to the 2017 deadline, acquiring Serge Ibaka from the Orlando Magic and P.J.

"But my immediate reaction was". I asked, did she know who it was? No.

A number of people took to Twitter to make it clear they want Neeson removed from Men in Black. Afterward he "did seek help" and went to a priest who heard his confession and also talked to a pair of very good friends. "So that I could ... kill him", he told the United Kingdom outlet, before admitting, "It was horrible, horrible, when I think back, that I did that". I was out of the country and when I came back she told me about this.

'I don't care how good of an actor you are. I am not racist.

"The bigotry, one Catholic would be killed, the next day a Protestant would be killed, one Catholic pub would be bombed and a Protestant pub would be bombed". I grew up surrounded by that.

The Taken star revealed that if his friend's attacker had been white, he would have had the same impulse. "I can say this man is not one", she continued. "Thankfully no violence occurred ever".

While promoting the action thriller Non-Stop alongside Julianne Moore, Neeson remarked that "we all racial profile", adding that "It's a terrible thing to admit to do but we all do it".

"We all pretend we're all, you know, politically correct", he said.
