The logic of Rodriguez's argument has caused a lot of debate though.
Also, **spoilers for Widows** Liam Neeson's character fakes his death to abandon Viola Davis for a white woman and another white family he has on the sidelines, so maybe that film isn't the best one to cite for him being incapable of anti-Black behavior.
"It's all fuckin' bullshit".
"It's all f***in' bullsh**t. His tongue was so far down Viola Davis's throat", said Rodriguez. "Repugnant. And racist." Andray Domise, a contributing editor for Macleans, called Crews's tweet "disappointing". "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", Rodriguez explained.
When Liam returned from overseas, his relative told him of the story and he found out what the person looked like and went down a very negative thought pattern in which he wanted to assault black people.
During the interview with "Good Morning America", Neeson said that had the perpetrator of rape been any other race, he would have had the same thoughts about killing a member of that ethnic community.
There's a tiny intake of breath before Liam Neeson says the words that may just end his career. "I know that you're getting crucified in many ways for saying what you did - and you're not shying away, you're admitting that it was wrong - but you have to also understand the pain of a black person hearing what you said".
He said: "If she had said Irish or Scot or a Brit or a Lithuanian, I know it would have had the same effect".
Twitter users have called for a boycott of Neeson's films as a result of his comments.
She said: "People walk around sometimes with rage, that's what happens".
He added: "I had never felt this feeling before, which was a primal urge to lash out ..." I was brought up in Northern Ireland. there was a war going on, and I had acquaintances who were involved in the troubles, in the bigotry.
"I got to work with Liam, teach him how to drive the snowblower".
Following this Barnes appeared on ITV's This Morning arguing that Neeson has a "racial bias" rather than actually holding racist views himself.
"It really shocked me, this primal urge I had. After that there were some nights where I went deliberately out to black areas deliberately to be set upon so I could unleash physical violence and I did it four or five times".
"It shocked me and it hurt me".
But he insisted: "I'm not racist - it was nearly 40 years ago - I was brought up in Northern Ireland..."
