After a British newspaper published an interview in which actor Liam Neeson discussed wanting to kill a random black person nearly 40 years ago when a close friend told him she had been raped by a black man, the backlash was swift and brutal.
Christian actress, Sherri Shepherd, who was not shy about expressing her disapproval, told TMZ, “I think that was a story he should have kept inside in his home with his friends.”
Many agree with her.
Neeson’s new Lionsgate release, Cold Pursuit, which tells the story of a father who seeks violent revenge for his son’s death, opened this weekend at the box office. Hanging over the opening is the offensive rhetoric he spewed to The Independent. Neeson said, upon discovering the race of his loved one’s attacker, he “went up and down areas with a cosh (stick or truncheon)” hoping a black person “would come out of a pub and have a go at me about something, you know? So that I could kill him.”
51-year-old Shepherd personally believes that twisted story “should have never gotten out.”
