Actress Michelle Rodriguez this week defended Liam Neeson against charges of racism.
According to Vanity Fair, Rodriguez stood up for Neeson, who was accused of racism after he said that he wanted to kill any black man because a man who allegedly raped his friend was said to be black.
“It’s all fuckin’ bullshit. Liam Neeson is not a racist,” Rodriguez, who stars in the movie Widows with Neeson, said at an event on Wednesday night. “Dude, have you watched Widows? His tongue was so far down Viola Davis’s throat.”
“You can’t call him a racist ever,” she added. “Racists don’t make out with the race that they hate, especially in the way he does with his tongue—so deep down her throat. I don’t care how good of an actor you are. It’s all bullshit. Ignore it. He’s not a racist. He’s a loving man. It’s all lies.”
Neeson has also insisted that he is not a racist.
