There was nothing wrong with what he said in the context in which he said it but he must know that you can't speak honestly about such things without poking the hornet's nest of reactionaries and the professionally outraged.
After all, he is a celebrity and a prime target for sensationalised stories.
His brain should tell his ego to shut up.



You're right, and it's such a poor reflection on the media and society that it's the expected norm that this sort of innocuous, candid chat would draw outrage because it touches on prejudice, so the teller should be wiser and stick to script in case it's pulled out of context.

1984 was a vision, not fiction.

As usual the social media lynchmob are baying for blood based on a soundbite without listening to the entire interview & understanding the context of his statement.

Worth also noting that we've yet to know the exact relationship he had with the person that suffered the rape attack, if immediate family I doubt there'd be many who wouldn't behave in a similar manner. Impressed with John Barnes on Sky, thought the guy was going to have a cardiac he was that passionate about the whole thing.

You are probably overlooking the fact that there probably weren't that many Black people around back then and yet one of them raped his friend.
That obviously didn't help discourage any stereotyping he might have had in his mind at the time.

Also, the context of the conversation was of his remorse for being misguided at that time.
He could have chosen his language a bit more carefully but his biggest crime, in my opinion, was to think that you can speak openly in 2019 without being accused of all sorts.
He should have know better than to open his gob.

Yep, and yep. But thereís no place for context or anything lasting than 45 seconds if thereís someone famous to hang to make a point on a crime they havenít committed. A downside of technology Iím afraid, and this will have negatives with the positives, just so people can satisfy their need to be shocked (thank the Diana funeral for this), and feel more virtuous for a few seconds as has already been pointed out. Itís going to be a strange world in a few hundred years if it hasnít flooded. Iím glad I wonít be around. Whoíd want to be? Feck that. Power in the wrong hands is very very bad, and too many idiots have too much.

I suppose they will have to cancel the latest Taken sequel where his daughter is kidnapped by a Somali gang and he takes his revenge.

Now Neeson is doing the 'I'm not racist' stuff.

How old is he? Doesn't he realise that it doesn't matter.

He's on the spit and he's gonna get roasted......the grievance machine is out for some good eating.

I think he said that in the same interview.
But as is now known your not allowed to admit a mistake if it involves colour.

Quite right. He should be strung up for the heinous crime of thinking bad thoughts forty years ago

And after he saved all those Jews.

It's about time we stood up the voice of identity politics extremism.
It is a mechanism of control and needs to be opposed.

Not much said about this one though, maybe not as extreme but shows that it is ok to abuse white people/irish if you are black!!!!!

 


In my day, a Selfie was what you had when the wife didn't put out.
