Michelle Rodriguez has apologized for her comments defending Liam Neeson after claiming that he could not be racist because of the way that he kissed Viola Davis in 'Widows.'

The actresses were met with outrage, forcing Rodriguez to hop on the Gram and apologize.

"To my friends, colleagues, fans, and community: I want to deeply apologize for my recent choice of words, and poor use of an example. In a pressure-filled situation, I defended a friend in the wrong way. I now realize how insensitive it was, and I had no intention of invoking such a terrible historical comparison. I have learned from this and will grow from it. One Love, MRod," she wrote.

Comments for the post have been switched off.

Neeson made reference to being on the hunt for any "Black bastard" following the rape of a close friend, while promoting his new revenge movie, 'Cold Pursuit.' 

Rodriguez then defended him by saying:

"Dude, have you watched Widows? His tongue was so far down Viola Davis’ throat. You cannot call him racist, ever. Racists do not make out with the race they hate, especially in the way that he does with his tongue. I do not care how good of an actor you are."
