Liam Neeson premiere cancelled due to backlash over racist revenge confession

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

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.

Some even suggested Sony would hire Christopher Plummer to replace Liam Neeson.

Actress Michelle Rodriguez, who co-starred with Neeson in last year's movie Widows, lashed out at the fierce criticism her colleague has faced at the amfAR Gala in NY late Wednesday, insisting he was not a racist. This is true. She handled the situation of the rape in the most extraordinary way.

Rodriguez, who herself co-starred in the feminist thriller, elicited some of the most outraged reactions to her comments from journalists and public figures who believe she may have jumped into the pit Neeson created together with him. You thought the scene was hot.

"Well for a start, there'd be no story", Neeson initially answered.

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".

The Taken actor had said in an interview with The Independent that he had considered committing a violent assault against a random black person some 40 years ago in retaliation for a close friend being raped by a black perpetrator. You admitted this. I give you credit there.

It would be Michallon's last question in the junket.

The song also declares, "You're just some racist who can't tie my laces / your point of view is medieval". "Hated his casting before the horrifying controversy, but now really hope it's not too late to digitally erase racist f-- Liam Neeson from it", another said.

She contacted civil rights organizations and London psychology professor Dr. Lasana Harris to ask about racially motivated crime.

"I guess Sony Pictures will soon be hiring Christopher Plummer to replace Liam Neeson in the upcoming Men In Black reboot?" one fan tweeted. "It was horrible, horrible, when I think back, that I did that", he added.

Neeson, 66, attempted to do damage control in an interview on "Good Morning America", but it appeared to worsen the scandal.

He did admit that he would have committed violence if he was set upon. "That is not my call to make", she said.

It remains to be seen how the scandal will affect the film at the box office this weekend - but at least he knows Michelle Rodriguez will go see it.
