Liam Neeson Issues New Apology For Racially-Motivated Revenge Story: ‘I Missed the Point’
Actor Liam Neeson is speaking out once again to offer a new apology for his controversial remarks he made last month. Liam admitted that he wanted to commit a racially motivated attack on a black man after a friend of his was raped decades ago.
After facing major backlash Liam realized his remarks were absolutely “unacceptable.” In his new statement he said,
“Over the last several weeks, I have reflected on and spoken to a variety of people who were hurt by my impulsive recounting of a brutal rape of a dear female friend nearly 40 years ago and my unacceptable thoughts and actions at that time in response to this crime,” he said in the statement, according to USA Today. “The horror of what happened to my friend ignited irrational thoughts that do not represent the person I am.”
“In trying to explain those feelings today, I missed the point and hurt many people at a time when language is so often weaponized and an entire community of innocent people are targeted in acts of rage. What I failed to realize is that this is not about justifying my anger all those years ago, it is also about the impact my words have today.”
Before concluding Neeson said,
“I was wrong to do what I did. I recognize that, although the comments I made do not reflect, in any way, my true feelings nor me, they were hurtful and divisive. I profoundly apologize.”
