Michelle Rodriguez Under Fire For Questionable Comments On Liam Neeson Controversy

"I really hope it's not too late to digitally erase that racist f-- Liam Neeson from the new Men In Black movie", one Twitter user wrote.

"It's all f**kin" bulls*it. When she came back, she told me about this and she handled the situation herself with incredible bravery, I have to say that. Dude, have you watched Widows?

The song also declares, "You're just some racist who can't tie my laces / your point of view is medieval".

"I come from a society - I grew up in Northern Ireland in the Troubles - and, you know, I knew a couple of guys that died on hunger strike, and I had acquaintances who were very caught up in the Troubles", the actor said. It's all bulls**t. Ignore it.

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.

Also, **spoilers for Widows** Liam Neeson's character fakes his death to abandon Viola Davis for a white woman and another white family he has on the sidelines, so maybe that film isn't the best one to cite for him being incapable of anti-Black behavior. The film serves as a remake of the 2014 Norwegian film, In Order of Disappearance, and finds Neeson playing a snowplower seeking revenge for the murder of his son.

The Irish actor said he roamed the streets looking for a "black b*stard" to hurt after someone close to him was raped.

He previously said: "We were doing a press junket and the topic of our film [Cold Pursuit] is revenge".

"I'm not racist, this was almost 40 years ago, but because I was brought up in the north of Ireland, I was brought up in the Troubles in the 60s, 70s and early 80s". I was out of the country. She said he was a black man.

Allen added on an Instagram post that, "I don't believe Liam Neeson's racist anecdote, which makes it even more disgusting". I'm a fairly intelligent guy, that's why it kind of shocked me, and then I came down to Earth after having these terrible feelings. "I'm a fairly intelligent guy, and that's why it kind of shocked me when I came down to earth after having these disgusting feelings".

Despite Liam immediately admitting he was ashamed of how he'd felt at the time in his interview with The Independent, the Taken star has faced severe backlash for his comments.

Presenter Andi Peters has joked on TV about Liam Neeson's racist comments made in a recent interview, showing himself locking his front door in case the actor is "in the area".

"People walk around sometimes with rage". Is he a bigot? No. "So that I could [pause] kill him".
