Liam Neeson Fans Not Taken when He Admits He Once Wanted to Kill a Black Person

Tough guy actor Liam Neeson’s fans are not very, uh, Taken with his recent admission that some years ago he wanted to “kill a black guy” when one of his friends was raped.

Neeson recently admitted to this strange desire in an interview with The Independent published Monday that almost sounds more like one of the vengeful characters he plays in his action movies than real life.

The Taken star told the paper that when his friend was raped he became engraged.

“I asked, did she know who it was? No,” Neeson remembered. “What color were they? She said it was a black person.”

Neesom, who grew up in violent Northern Ireland in the late 50s and early 60s when “The Troubles” were still raging, made the strange admission that he “went up and down areas with a cosh (a club)” 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.”

“It took me a week, maybe a week and a half, to go through that,” Neeson added.

Notice what he was saying here? Neesom was saying that he wanted to “kill” a black person and he didn’t care who it was. An innocent bystander or not, Neesom wanted him dead.

Still, Neesom insisted that the “horrible” incident taught him a life lesson about how bad revenge is.

The actor insisted, “I understand that need for revenge, but it just leads to more revenge, to more killing and more killing, and Northern Ireland’s proof of that.”

Despite Neeson’s claim that he learned a vital lesson from that incident from nearly 50 years ago, many of his liberal Hollyweird pals and the left in general were not very enthused over his comments.

I guess that means we don’t get another “Darkman” sequel.
