Liam Neeson’s Career Is Quickly Takkken As Appearances Get Canceled

Liam Neeson’s career is about to take a permanent hiatus after he revealed he cased predominantly Black areas in Ireland during The Troubles. Hoping to avenge the sexual assault of a loved one, the repeat anti-hero carried a weapon, looking to kill any Black man to sate his anger.

Intent to KKKill

During an interview to promote his new film Cold Pursuit, Liam Neeson was explaining how his character was capable of diving so deeply into the pits of anger. Telling a story about how someone close to him was sexually assaulted during an ethno-nationalist conflict 40 years ago, Neeson outed himself for taking a bigoted approach to revenge.

“I’ll tell you a story. This is true. I’m not going to use any names, but I was away, and I came back. And she told me she had been raped. But she handled the situation of the rape in the most extraordinary way. But my immediate reaction was…I asked, did she know who it was? No. What color were they? She said it was a black person. I’ve gone 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 Black bastard would come out of a pub and have a go at me about something so that I could kill him.”

Liam Neeson went on to say that it took him roughly a week, perhaps a week and a half, to get through his rage. In his interview with Robin Roberts on Good Morning America, he admitted he went into Black neighborhoods about 5 times carrying a “cosh”, a thick, heavy stick to bludgeon someone. He admitted that he did not consider innocent Black people during his quest for vengeance, nor did he consider the possibility of being overpowered and killed. When asked what snapped him out of his rage, he credited powerwalking. He then ended his interview with the realization that “bigotry breeds bigotry.”

Following the Good Morning America interview, where he attempted to explain his way out of this PR crisis, other outlets have begun cancelling his scheduled appearances. As backlash for his remarks during the interview, Lionsgate pulled his red carpet premiere just 3 hours before the event. Since then, he has cancelled appearances at The Late Show with Stephen Colbert in an effort to dodge further questions about his race-based revenge.

Reviews Pouring In

Despite the tension surrounding the actor’s public image, reviews for his new film are still inbound. At an 84& on Rotten Tomatoes, critics are saying it’s par for a Liam Neeson film with added dark humor, but former fans are having difficulty justifying seeing the film. For Black viewers in particular, Liam owes many a formal statement and apology. His intended actions evoke a very real, very bloody history in America, and worldwide, of the persecution of innocent Black people.

Do you think Liam Neeson can recover from this?

50 Cent Emanuel Gonzalez

Deputy Inspector Emanuel Gonzalez is now under investigation following reports that he allegedly told officers to shoot 50 cent on sight during roll call.

On the morning of February 17th, 50 Cent took to Twitter to share news of the threat he received from the NYPD inspector. Employed at the 72nd Precinct in Sunset Park, the Deputy told officers June 7th of 2018 to shoot the rapper on sight when he was expected to attend an NYPD sanctioned boxing event.

NYPD officials have now confirmed that after the Daily News report of the threat emerged, a full investigation is underway. The threat on 50 Cent’s life was made when he was expected to be in the Bronx. Astounded by the lack of corruption within for force, Curtis “50 Cent” James Jackson III plans to pursue legal action and is consulting with his team to review his options

Although the news of a threat on his life is disconcerting, 50 wants fans to remember “there are some good people working in Law Enforcement. Like the officers that reported what he said to them.” He then called Emanuel Gonzalez a “gangsta with a badge,” and questioned his employment as a commanding officer.

Jussie Smollett

Police have identified two Nigerian men as suspects in Jussie Smollett’s case. The men have been questioned in the attack on the “Empire” star and have been arrested on probable cause.

Identified as brothers, the two men have been questioned by police in Chicago following their arrival from Nigeria. The suspects were apprehended at Chicago O’Hare International Airport on Wednesday after authorities learned one of them was connected to “Empire.” Following the Chicago Police receiving and executing a search warrant, authorities are not disclosing what was found within the shared apartment.

In a statement provided to Associated Press by Anthony Guglielmi, Chief Communications Officer of the Chicago PD, there was emphasis placed on the nature of the suspects arrest. At this time, both persons have been arrested for probable cause alone.

Breaking the Silence

For the first time since the January 29th attack, Jussie Smollett has sat down for an interview. Robin Roberts of Good Morning America inquired about what happened that fateful evening and how Jussie was responding to those who doubt his claims. Jussie took the opportunity to share what happened during the attack, clear up what his assailants said while assaulting him, and added his manager was on the phone the entire time.

When it comes to what his attackers looked like, Jussie says, “I can’t tell you what color their eyes were” as their appearance was obstructed by ski masks. He provided a body description to officers and noted that he only saw them completely as they were running away. Robin then asked if Jussie believed the men in the photo were his attackers and he said, “I don’t have any doubt in my mind that’s them.”
