Michelle Rodriguez dragged for defending Liam Neeson

Terry Crews and Wale Go Back and Forth About Liam Neeson on Twitter

The controversy surrounding Liam Neeson's racist remarks doesn't appear to be slowing down. After one of Neeson's dear friends had told him she had been brutally raped by a black man, he revealed he went to predominantly black neighborhoods hoping he would be attacked in order to unleash his own violence on the would-be attackers.

Host Robin Roberts, for her part, pushed Neeson on the issue - detailing why so many who read his comments were upset. But my immediate reaction was. I don't know a woman who hasn't been harassed and I have never heard of an instance where a man has actually gone out to defend her honor. "'What color were they?' She said it was a black person".

In the bombshell interview, Neeson spoke of "hoping some black bastard would come out of a pub and have a go at me about something, you know?"

"I got to work with Liam, teach him how to drive the snowblower". "If you don't think that's a big deal, then tell me, why isn't it happening more?"

"When he started telling me about his friend's rape, I had no idea where the story was going", the journalist wrote.

After Tuesday's attempt at damage control, Neeson is lying low.

He dealt with either the yips or a shoulder injury, depending on what you choose to believe. That logic doesn't apply to this situation, or to the trade Brand made.

Responding to the backlash his comments had drawn, the 66-year-old Irish star told the USA television network ABC's "Good Morning America" on Tuesday that "I'm not a racist". "Liam is just describing his fork in the road", Crews tweeted Tuesday.

As an A-list movie star who has lived and worked in a country polarised by race for more than 30 years and commands $20 million a film, that's the moment you think: "Maybe I won't launch into a racist anecdote, after all".

Liam admitted he sought help for his violent feelings and insisted that he is not racist.

The Taken actor has since clarified his comments, explaining he was expressing the unexpected "primal urge" to lash out that he felt after his pal's attack.

"If she said Irish, Scot, a Brit, I know I would have the same effect", he said. "But it was this primal hatred, I guess, that really, really shocked me when I eventually came down to earth and I saw what I was doing. I did seek help, I went to a priest, I was reared Catholic". The Root's Tonja Renée Stidhum jumped in the online conversation as well, clapping back at Rodriguez, "Viola Davis can not suck the racism out of Liam Neeson". "This was almost 40 years ago". While Neeson has argued that he's since atoned for those actions, some are still upset by the nature of the comments.
