Journalist opens up about interview with Liam Neeson

"I'm ashamed to say that, and I did it for maybe a week, hoping some "black bastard" would come out of a pub and have a go at me about something".

The Irish actor, 66, was due to appear on the United States chat show on Friday, as he promotes his latest film Cold Pursuit. "I went to a priest, who heard my confession" and also later confided in two friends and would go out powerwalking for "two hours a day to get this [anger] out of me".

Neeson said no violence occurred.

Presenter Andi Peters has joked on TV about Liam Neeson's racist comments made in a recent interview, showing himself locking his front door in case the actor is "in the area".

Fans were calling for Neeson to be removed from the Men in Black film which is out in June, amid speculation that he will be stood down from the publicity tour for the show.

"It's bad. But I did learn a lesson from it, when I eventually thought, 'What the f*** are you doing, ' you know?" I remembered an incident almost 40 years ago where a dear friend of mine was brutally raped.

"It was easier for Liam Neeson to admit he wanted to commit hate crimes against Black people than it was to accept being called a racist", comedian and filmmaker Hari Kondabolu tweeted.

Neeson said he did ask his friends all of those things, and if she said a white man raped her he would've had the same reaction.

Describing what motivated him to try to attack a black man he told GMA: 'Nearly 40 years ago when a very dear friend of mine was brutally raped and I was out of the country and when I came back she told me about it. "It shocked me. It hurt me".
