In a bizarre interview on a press junket for his new movie, Cold Pursuit, Liam Neeson admitted to reporters that he once contemplated carrying out a racist revenge murder after a person close to him was raped.
Neeson told reporters that many years ago, he returned home from traveling overseas when he learned about the rape. As The Independent reports:
“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 color were they? She said it was a black person. 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.”
This went on for a week, Neeson said.
“It was horrible, horrible, when I think back, that I did that,” he told reporters. “And I’ve never admitted that, and I’m saying it to a journalist. God forbid… It’s awful. But I did learn a lesson from it, when I eventually thought, ‘What the fuck are you doing,’ you know?”
It’s a disturbing story, and one that has already sparked shock and outrage online.
