I feel if people boycott all of his films because he had an emotional response of revenge from a horrible situation than people are fucking idiots. Just because he asked what colour the perp was does not make him a racist. Anyone with a heart and love for a friend would have felt the same way as he had. People are getting so ridiculous on picking on every little thing thing they can to ruin others lives its making me hate this world more and more . Can't people just leave the past where it belongs and get along with peace and love. As for Liam, he doesn't deserve this and I will always watch his movies because he is an incredible actor that deserves to be recognized for that. Thank you

I think John Barnes interview (5 Feb 19 @ 11:47 GMT) on Sky News sums it up best.
No one is perfect. The perfect man is the one to learn from their mistakes & teach others not to make the same. Mr. Neeson, seems to be an honest man & wanted to share a life learning experience. No, I will not blindly follow Social Bullies trying to ruein a man.

I could not agree more. This is just another example of media loving nothing better than to bring down anyone they can just to make themselves feel better. I would have reacted the exact same way! The difference being, for me, I likely would have killed the bastard!

Forget it. Don’t back down. You are honest, true to human feelings. It was a black person, who cares! It is obvious it doesn’t matter what their genetic background is, you had normal feelings of pain and retribution for someone you love being harmed. It is normal and authentic. At least you have the courage to admit it. A very strong person, and there is nothing but admiration deserved here. These screamers are people who have never let their guard down and been truly genuine as you have been .
Stop allowing them to hold you back, force cancellations of your duties for your industry, and pushing you back from living your life.
You have exhibited courage. You hurt no one. From your interview had you been attacked, your response would have been what they deserved.
This new agenda of only one segment of our population being human is disgusting as they are unworthy and scream the loudest.
We all have a voice, we are just more honest about it with no ulterior motive. The most racist people in America are the ones who constantly claim to be injured due to racism.
Hold True to your beliefs, they are your right and you have lived with incredible honor and honesty. I hope you can stand firm and live free and happy.

Thank you for being honest.

I don't think we should have to censor all our comments because some may be offended. if that was how you felt, you were honest enough to admit it. You did not commit a crime and I still support your career.
