Liam Neeson’s Film ‘Cold Pursuit’ Cancels Red Carpet Following His Controversial Comments

Liam Neeson’s Film ‘Cold Pursuit’ Cancels Red Carpet Following His Controversial Comments”

And I did it, I'd say maybe four or five times, until I caught myself on and it really shocked me, this primal urge I had.

"He needs to continue to apologise and outright say that he made a mistake, rather than trying to defend his words or bring in more context", he told the BBC.

Calls for a boycott of the latest instalment in the Men In Black franchise, in which Neeson plays the head of a United Kingdom branch of a secret service, were accompanied by suggestions that he be removed from the film, which is due to be released in June. I asked, did she know who it was? No.

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.

Liam admitted he sought help for his violent feelings and added: "I did seek help".

Later that day the red carpet for the NY premiere of his latest action thriller Cold Pursuit was cancelled, though the screening itself went ahead.

Neeson, whose critics have said he should be banned from the Oscars and making movies, said his anger came during the Troubles in Northern Ireland where murder was all around him. I can say this man is not one.

Good Morning Britain presenter Piers Morgan blasted John Barnes" comments live on Wednesday, telling viewers: "I don't think it deserves a medal. I thought, 'Ok.' After that, there were some nights I went out deliberately into black areas in this city, looking to be set upon so that I could unleash physical violence. One Catholic would be killed, the next day a Protestant would be killed. It shocked me and it hurt me. "This was almost 40 years ago".

Though it remains to be seen how Sony plans to tackle the situation, some fans of the series are at least anticipating that Neeson's presence in the marketing for the movie will be severely reduced, while others hope that he won't be involved in the Men in Black International press tour.
