"She said he was a black man".

"It really shocked me, this primal urge I had". I went to a priest.

Neeson said: "But my immediate reaction was". I asked her, 'Did you know the person?

"Hey Michelle Rodriguez, if you have ever paid attention to anything in your life, this story was introduced to the news cycle unprompted, by Liam Neeson". In this country - it's the same in my own country too - you sometimes just scratch the surface and you discover this racism and bigotry.

He said of his friend: "She handled the situation of the rape in the most extraordinary way".

Neeson told Roberts he had asked about the race of the attacker, along with other descriptive characteristics.

Despite attempting to set the record straight, many people on social media and beyond were still shocked with the actor's original reveal.

"After Liam's unnecessary and offensive recounting, I knew someone would drop a slave-y ass ideology about white men's inability to be racist being linked to their lust for black women would pop up somewhere".

She allegedly went on to refer to Neeson as a 'racist pig.' The lyrics to her song 'F*** You include: 'You're just some racist who can't tie my laces. While Neeson has argued that he's since atoned for those actions, some are still upset by the nature of the comments. The ONLY reason he didn't get to carry out what he wanted is really because of luck.

Fans on Twitter have called for a boycott of his films as a result of the comments, though some, including former footballer John Barnes have defended him.

'It's been spun - if you want to think about what he's actually saying, he's saying he was ashamed and horrified by the way he felt'.

The statements have come back into the public eye in response to Neeson's comments in a more recent interview.

Activist Tariq Nasheed also said, "If a Black actor said he wanted to get revenge on random white people because of the injustices done by people who believe in white supremacy, he would be labeled a Black Identity Extremists and he would be placed on every Federal Bureau of Investigation watch list".
