Liam Neeson Apologizes for Controversial Revenge Comments Made in February
Liam Neeson has written an apology for his racist revenge comments that he made back in February while promoting Cold Pursuit. The actor says that he "missed the point and hurt many people" after revealing that he once walked around his hometown, "hoping some 'black bastard' would come out of a pub and have a go at me" so that he could "kill him." The comments were made after Neeson revealed one of his good friends admitted she'd been raped by a black man years ago.

The internet exploded after Liam Neeson's comments were published. The Cold Pursuit world premiere was promptly canceled and the actor was the target of many articles attacking what he said. In an interview after the controversy, Neeson maintained that he was not racist and that he went for help. In the end, the actor hopes that his mistake can lead to a teachable moment.
