Michelle Rodriguez has defended her fellow actor Liam Neeson following the backlash.

“It’s all f*cking bullsh*t. Liam Neeson is not a racist," said according to Vanity Fair. 

"Dude, have you watched Widows? His tongue was so far down Viola Davis’s throat. You can’t call him a racist ever."

She then continued:

"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. I don’t care how good of an actor you are. It’s all bullsh*t. Ignore it. He’s not a racist. He’s a loving man. It’s all lies.”

Neeson, 66, was slammed following an interview with The Independent while promoting his new film 'Cold Pursuit.' 

"I went up and down areas with a cosh, hoping I’d be approached by somebody — I’m ashamed to say that — and I did it for maybe a week, hoping some [in air quotes] 'black bastard' would come out of a pub and have a go at me about something, you know? So that I could… kill him,” he said.
