Chaos erupts during heated Liam Neeson debate on Good Morning Britain

Chaos erupts during heated Liam Neeson debate on Good Morning Britain”

From her experience of press junkets, she said celebrities rarely share personal stories. "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. Michallon said she and Bateman laughed.

The 33-year-old singer was performing in Sydney, Australia, when she told the crowd she would sing "F**k You" for the 66-year-old actor, who has been subjected to a huge backlash after shockingly confessed he sought racially-charged revenge after a friend was raped. I asked her did she know the person, and his race.

The Hollywood star provoked widespread criticism after he told The Independent that he had walked the streets armed with a cosh, hoping he would be approached by someone "so that I could kill him" after his friend told her she was attacked by a black man.

This was rejected by Blackwood, who said: "One thing no one has addressed is that he said he felt ashamed for the revengeful act that he was going to carry out, did he say that he was ashamed he referred to black people as black b's?"

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

The star, who was later hugged and kissed by black audience members on the Live with Kelly and Ryan show, said he had gone to church when he became "scared" and realised he had wanted to "unleash" murder on a stranger for his friend, who he said died five years ago. "It was horrible, horrible, when I think back, that I did that", he added.

"Dr. Harris explained how our pre-existing biases shape our view of the world. I did seek help, I went to a priest, I was reared Catholic".

Earlier in the day, Neeson appeared on "Good Morning America," insisting his words were taken out of context. "Many have rightfully pointed out the cynicism of seeing a white person praised for publicly admitting to having harbored the desire to commit a racist murder".

You can see Neeson's "GMA" interview below. "That is not my call to make", she said. He's letting those movie roles go to his head.

Organizers of the NY premiere of Cold Pursuit informed journalists that interviews and photo opportunities had been cancelled on Tuesday afternoon, a couple hours before the event was supposed to start.
