All of this comes after an interview with The Independent during his press tour for the action-drama Cold Pursuit.

Rodriguez came to her Widows co-star's defense during Wednesday's amfAR Gala in NY, according to Vanity Fair after Neeson recently admitted that he once sought to kill a "Black Bastard" who he said attacked his friend. "I'll tell you a story, this is true. This is true", Neeson told the Independent's Clémence Michallon. "No", she said on Wednesday's edition on United States talk show The View. The lady journalist asked me how I tapped into that. What color were they?

A number of people took to Twitter to make it clear they want Neeson removed from Men in Black.

While Neeson and Davis do engage in sexual activity in the movie Widows, his character also attempts to kill hers in one of the film's final scenes.

Neeson said he agreed but insisted "I didn't think about that". "I grew up around that, but was never part of it".

"It's bad", he continued.

"It's bad. But I did learn a lesson from it, when I eventually thought, 'What the f*** are you doing, ' you know?" I was brought up in Northern Ireland. there was a war going on, and I had acquaintances who were involved in the troubles, in the bigotry. You know? 'What's wrong?' 'No no, nothing's wrong'. "But that primal need, I understand".

The red carpet at Cold Pursuit's NY premiere was abruptly cancelled on Monday due to the controversy.

While the RAM and storage remain the same as the 2018 model, the G7 Plus does reduce its battery capacity to 3000mAh from 3200mAh. One of the trade-offs you'll have to make with the G7 Power is that it features a single-lens 12-megapixel camera on the back.

Neeson was this week engulfed in scandal when he admitted during a promotional interview for his new revenge flick Cold Pursuit that he took a bat and walked the streets looking for a black man to slaughter after a loved one told him she had been raped.

Earlier, Neeson had appeared on Good Morning America to address his comments, saying he was not a racist.

'It shocked me, this primal urge I had.

He continued, "I went up and down areas with a cosh, hoping I'd be approached by somebody". I had two very, very good friends that I talked to. "So that I could kill him". "The lady journalist was asking, 'How do you tap into that?,' and I remembered an incident almost 40 years ago when a friend of mine was brutally raped". I am not racist.

The actor has since clarified his comments, explaining he was expressing the unexpected "primal urge" to lash out that he felt after his friend's attack.

Lily Allen has reportedly dedicated her song "F*** You" to Liam Neeson. You can't grow as a person if you can't admit what you did - or nearly did - was racist.

Wale slams Terry Crew for throwing his support behind Liam Neeson.

And after sticking up for Neeson, Crews became was hit with backlash.
