After getting blasted for her tone-deaf defense of Liam Neeson after he admitted he wanted to kill ‘Black bastards’ to avenge a crime against a friend, Michelle Rodriguez has apologized.
The actress took to Instagram Sunday to release a statement after saying Neeson wasn’t a racist because he kissed Viola Davis in the movie Widows, the NY Daily News reports.
“To my friends and colleagues and my fans and community: I want to deeply apologize for my recent choice of words, and poor use of example. In a pressure-filled situation, I defended a friend in the wrong way,” Rodriguez said. “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.”
“It’s all f—-ing bulls—. Dude have you watched ‘Widows?’ His tongue is so far down Viola Davis’ throat. You can’t call him a racist,” she told Vanity Fair.
“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 bulls—. Ignore it. He’s not a racist. He’s a loving man. It’s all lies.”
We’re still waiting for Viola Davis to say a word or two.
