Liam Neeson issues an apology: ‘Missed the point and hurt many people’

Liam Neeson is again apologizing for revealing that he wanted to kill a random black person nearly 40 years ago after a close friend had been raped by a black man. Neeson issued a statement on 29 March and apologized for “hurtful and divisive” comments that “do not reflect, in any way, my true feelings for me.”

The actor caused a firestorm in early February when he told the Independent that after learning his friend’s attacker was black, he hoped 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.”

In his latest statement, Neeson said he has had time to reflect on “my unacceptable thoughts and actions at that time.” He said that in trying to explain his feelings, he “missed the point and hurt many people.” He ended the 155-word statement to Variety.
