Liam Neeson pulls out of The Late Show following rape revenge comments

Terry Crews and Wale Go Back and Forth About Liam Neeson on Twitter

This is true. She handled the situation of the rape in the most extraordinary way. What color were they?

More than 1,000 people died in 30 years of conflict between mostly Protestants, who fought for Northern Ireland to remain part of the United Kingdom against mostly Catholics who wanted it to be part of the Republic of Ireland. "I was out of the country and when I came back she told me about this".

He said he was compelled by a "primal" and "medieval" desire for revenge when he had violent thoughts about killing a black person after a woman close to him was raped.

"It took me a week, maybe a week and a half, to go through that. 'What's wrong?' 'No no, nothing's wrong'". All this stuff that's happening in the world, the violence, is proof of that, you know. I had a primal urge.

"Normally, I dedicate this song to Donald Trump", she told the crowd in Sydney, Australia, "but tonight I'm dedicating it to Liam Neeson".

However, the red carpet for the screening was canceled just hours before arrivals were to begin in the wake of the Neeson's racially charged comments he recently made during an interview with the Independent. Black History Month is really popping off early, wow. "I've known him a pretty long time, I think I would have recognised". "Sprinklers on, everyone evacuates".

She also wrote that in her interview and in an appearance on "Good Morning America", "Neeson thought he was telling a story of atonement". I asked her, 'Did you know the person?' 'No.' 'His race?' She said he was a black man. It was a man?

Like John Barnes, who said the Taken star "deserves a medal" for his remarks, the 63-year-old actress defended Liam, saying she's "been around a lot of real bigots", but she doesn't count Liam as one.

But I had never felt this feeling before, which was a primal urge to lash out. "I did seek help, I went to a priest".

The Irish actor, 66, was due to appear on the United States chat show on Friday, as he promotes his latest film Cold Pursuit.

Ronn Torossian, a "crisis management mogul" with New York-based PR firm 5W Public Relations, believes Neeson can still "save his image" provided he gives further displays of contrition.
