His comments rubbed people completely the wrong way, especially Piers Morgan. The Good Morning Britain host slammed his words as the “purest personification of racism.”

“I can’t think of anything more staggering that’s come out of a movie star’s mouth. I would be very surprised if Liam Neeson’s career is not now in very serious trouble.” He added, “If I was a black person, I would not want to see this guy’s movies. So racist. It’s like Ku Klux Klan stuff, sorry it is!”

Clemence Michallon, who conducted the interview for The Independent appeared on GMB to describe what it was like to hear the actor make those comments.

“It all went very fast,” she said. “You do not go into a movie press junket expecting to hear that story. What I felt immediately was a strong sense of responsibility and duty to tell the story sensitively.”

Neeson said he was actually “ashamed” of his comments, telling the interviewer:

“It was horrible, horrible, when I think back, that I did that. 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.”
