Michelle Rodriguez Defends Liam Neeson

Michelle Rodriguez is coming to the defense of her “Widows” costar Liam Neeson.

A little backstory: Liam recently stated in an interview that—almost 40 years ago—he was looking to commit a hate crime and kill a random black man on the street.

The reason: one of his friends was raped by a black man, so he went out on the streets to get even.

Fast forward: Michelle says there is no way that was a racial thing because of the way the actor kisses when he is acting. Um, okay? She went on to explain that when his character made out with Viola Davis’ character in the film, “his tongue was so far down [her] throat. 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. It’s all bullsh*t. Ignore it. He’s not a racist.”

Liam Neeson’s Nephew Has Died

The news comes just 5 years after he suffered from a tragic fall that left him with severe head injuries. His family was reportedly by his side during his time of death. Ronan was 35-years-old.
