Odds are you've heard the name Liam Neeson quite a bit this week. That's because in the middle of his press tour for his upcoming action film, Cold Pursuit, the actor decided to reveal some pretty unnerving and racist behavior from his past.
On Monday, Neeson told the British publication The Independent that years ago, one of his friends said she had been raped. His response? Asking about the assailant's skin color. The woman apparently told him that her rapist was black, which compelled Neeson to literally wander the streets with a "cosh" (British slang for a heavy stick or bar) looking to get into a fight and kill any "black bastard" who would have the misfortune of approaching Neeson in the first place.
The whole interview was definitely a lot to process, and many people called him out for engaging in racist behavior that could have ended in devastating violence. And the whole situation only got worse when Neeson made an apology tour stop on Good Morning America a day later.
