Neeson On The "Witch Hunt" In Hollywood

Neeson On The Neeson On The "Witch Hunt" In Hollywood

The "Taken" actor was slammed on Twitter for his comments.

Appearing on an Irish TV show, popular actor Liam Neeson took the opportunity to speak out against the allegations of inappropriate behavior that have inundated Hollywood, affecting his colleagues.

The French actor Catherine Deneuve drew sharp criticism this week when she also used the term "witch-hunt" to describe the chain of events since allegations of serial sexual assault were made against Hollywood producer Harvey Weinstein past year.

Asked about the issue on the Irish broadcaster RTE, Neeson said: "There's some people, famous people, being suddenly accused of touching some girl's knee or something and suddenly they're being dropped from their programme".

"The Dustin Hoffman thing, I'm on the fence about that". When you're in a play and you're with your family, other actors... you do silly things. "If you don't do it every night, you think it's gonna jinx the show".

Neeson was quick to distance himself from Hoffman's alleged behaviour, saying: "I'm not saying I've done similar things to what he's done".

Hoffman has been accused of harassment and assault by multiple women, charges which he has strenuously denied.

The 80-year-old double Oscar winner's lawyer described the claims as "defamatory falsehoods".

"The Commuter" star pointed to Garrison Keillor, the former Minnesota Public Radio personality who was sacked from his job over allegations of "inappropriate behavior".

The actor was addressing the outpouring of sexual harassment and assault allegations which have rocked Hollywood in the wake of the Harvey Weinstein scandal. "It's healthy, and it's across every industry". I sent her an email of apology later and she replied that she had forgiven me. "The reference to a "witch hunt" also irked me". "We just want men to stop abusing their power", wrote one of the users.

"Oh God, Liam.it's not "childhood stuff" when they were grown men, it's being lecherous, inappropriate creeps".

Neeson, who is from Ballymena, was awarded for his work with Unicef and for being a world renowned actor.

It will not be the first time Neeson will have met Michael D Higgins, as the President presented him with an "Outstanding Contribution" award at the 2016 IFTAs.

But @RealSarahFlynn wrote: "You mightn't like it but at least he's authentic and I don't think calling elements of it a witch hunt is that terribly untrue".
