Michelle Rodriguez is getting dragged to hell and back for she used to “Prove” Liam Neeson is not racist.
Liam Neeson recently came under heavy fire after he said he used to go outside hunting for a black person to do something like talk to him out of term, or do something he didn’t like so he could kill one.
He did so after finding out one someone close to him was allegedly raped by a black man.
Liam Neeson said in the interview,
“She handled the situation of the rape in the most extraordinary way. But my immediate reaction was I asked, did she know who it was? No. What colour were they? She said it was a black person.”
People online were already starting to show anger once he asked for the color of the person, and wonder if the woman had answered “White”, would he have reacted in the same way and gone outside to do the same to a white man, like himself.
“I went up and down areas with a cosh, hoping I’d be… approached by somebody. I’m ashamed to say that, and I did it for maybe a week – hoping some [Neeson gestures air quotes with his fingers] ‘black bastard’ would come out of a pub and have a go at me about something, you know? So that I could kill him.”
His Co-Star Tom Bateman who was sitting beside his during the interview, was so shocked he just let out a “Holy Shit.”
“It took me a week, maybe a week and a half, to go through that. She would say, ‘Where are you going?’ and I would say, ‘I’m just going out for a walk.’ You know? ‘What’s wrong?’ ‘No no, nothing’s wrong.’”
After the backlash he received for everything he said, he cancelled multiple show appearances he had, and is now trying to lay low.
Michelle Rodriguez came forward today and tried to defend him.
Michelle Rodriguez said at the amfAR Gala New York on Wednesday night:
It’s all fuckin’ bullshit. Liam Neeson is not a racist,” said Rodriguez at the amfAR Gala New York on Wednesday night. “Dude, have you watched Widows? His tongue was so far down Viola Davis’s throat. You can’t call him a racist ever. Racists don’t make out with the race that they hate, especially in the way he does with his tongue—so deep down her throat. I don’t care how good of an actor you are. It’s all bullshit. Ignore it. He’s not a racist. He’s a loving man. It’s all lies.”
