Red carpet event for Liam Neeson movie scrapped after revenge remarks

Share

Neeson said he had learned that society needed to have a larger discussion to end racism and bigotry. Roberts asked Neeson on Tuesday. After that, there were some nights I went out deliberately into black areas in the city looking to be set upon so that I could unleash physical violence, and I did it for four or five times until I caught myself on. "Would you have wanted to go out and kill?"

This comes after Neeson came under fire earlier this week, when he detailed a story about wanting to seek revenge on a black man, after a female loved one alleged she was raped. "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".

It would be Michallon's last question in the junket.

I said there would be some blowback, and the red carpet being canceled for his new movie might only be the beginning.

She said: "People walk around sometimes with rage, that's what happens".

She contacted civil rights organizations and London psychology professor Dr. Lasana Harris to ask about racially motivated crime.

Later, the 33-year-old singer took to Instagram and wrote about Neeson saying she does not believe in the Taken star's "racist anecdote".

Describing what motivated him to try to attack a black man he told GMA: 'Nearly 40 years ago when a very dear friend of mine was brutally raped and I was out of the country and when I came back she told me about it.

"Dr. Harris explained how our pre-existing biases shape our view of the world".

She added: 'What he did go on to say... is that he realised that it was too dark for him, he went and got himself help'. "Many have rightfully pointed out the cynicism of seeing a white person praised for publicly admitting to having harbored the desire to commit a racist murder".

It sees Neeson playing High T, the head of the United Kingdom arm of MIB. "That is not my call to make", she said.

The U.S. premiere for the movie, in which Neeson plays a man seeking revenge for his son's killers, will still go ahead on Tuesday.

Banville's comments come after the red carpet for the premiere of Neeson film Cold Pursuit was abruptly cancelled, just hours before the event was supposed to start. Neeson attended the premiere, Variety reported today, February 7, as well as the after-party at The Skylark, a premier rooftop bar in Manhattan.
