Michelle Rodriguez believes Liam Neeson isn’t racist because of how he kisses

Michelle Rodriguez believes Liam Neeson isn’t racist because of how he kisses

As you may already know, actor Liam Neeson is now feeling some backlash for saying that he wanted to kill a "black bastard" out of revenge for a black man allegedly raping one of his friends.

"Usually I dedicate this next song to Donald Trump, but today I feel more disgusted by Liam Neeson so this song is dedicated to him", she told her fans.

He then gave a follow-up interview on where he admitted he had been "shocked" by his "primal urge" for revenge. He told interviewer Robin Roberts he is not a racist and moved past his desire for violence after seeking help from a priest and from friends.

"God forbid", Neeson said.

Speaking on "Good Morning America", he said: "We were doing a press junket, and the topic of our film Cold Pursuit is revenge".

"You didn't ask if the person was tall or short, big or small".

Now Michelle Rodriguez has thrown her two cents into the conversation as she shared her thoughts on the debacle - to her, she also believes Liam isn't bigoted. In this country - it's the same in my own country too - you sometimes just scratch the surface and you discover this racism and bigotry. "If she said "WHITE" would he have been roaming the streets looking to KILL a random white man??"

On Monday, Neeson told the British newspaper The Independent that he related to characters in his movies such as "Taken" who seek revenge when someone close to them is hurt.

The Brooklyn Nine-Nine actor appeared to defend Neeson on social media Tuesday. I love how he showed Black women love for showing up for him after he accused Adam Venit of groping him at an event back in 2017.

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. "You immediately went to race", she stated.

However, others were still criticising the actor, with playwright Bonnie Greer telling the BBC that Neeson's comments "probably put paid to his career" and added he "needs to take a rest for a while". The ONLY reason he didn't get to carry out what he wanted is really because of luck.

'It's been spun - if you want to think about what he's actually saying, he's saying he was ashamed and horrified by the way he felt'.

Now, initially, Crews seemed to be on the right side of history and the outrage about Neeson's statements.
