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?

Amanda Seales is Not the One

mm

Published

on

Earlier this week, the ladies of “The Real” celebrated their 1,000th episode. Hosts Loni Love, Tamera Mowry, Adrienne Bailon, Jeannie Mai, and Amanda Seales happily celebrated the momentous occasion with laughs, tears and a bottle of champagne. 

The celebration continued as the ladies were interviewed by “Extra” correspondent Jenn Lahmers.

During the interview, things became a bit awkward when Lahmers referred to Seales as the “newbie” and began to insinuate that she and fellow co-host, Mai, had “butted heads on a couple of topics.”

Immediately, Seales cut her off saying, “Have we? Stop!” She followed that up by stating emphatically, “That’s’ not the territory we’re coming from. We’re not butting heads. And I think it’s very, very important, especially at a table of diverse women to very clearly delineate the difference between having a difference of opinion than butting heads. You’ll know when I’m butting heads because when I butt heads, there’s only going to be one head standing and as you can see, we’re still here,” as she embraced Mai.

Mai and Seales followed up the quick read with a toast as the other ladies chimed in, fully supporting everything Seales had expressed. 

Earlier today, Seales posted a snippet of the exchange via her personal Instagram page with the caption, “To Gather.

She tried it. Don’t come for me unless I send for you. I am not hostile. I’m passionate. Happy Black History Month ❤️✊🏽”

Seales made her debut as the newest co-host of “The Real” on January 6th.

Rolling Stone magazine hit us with a trifecta of talent for their second annual, Women Shaping the Future issue, out March 3. 

On the cover, sweet-faced Normani, brash in your face Megan Thee Stallion and innocent, doe-eyed SZA are each clad in leather ensembles that match the unique persona’s we’ve come to love. 

SZA burst onto the scene in 2014 with her ep debut, Z. Since then, the singer/songwriter has been featured on chart-topping songs with Kendrick Lamar, Travis Scott, and Rihanna. 

Megan Thee Stallion grabbed our attention with her summer anthem, Hot Girl Summer, and has been giving us “Hot Girl” vibes all year long with no signs of slowing down.

As for Normani, formerly a member of Fifth Harmony, she’s given us plenty to celebrate as she embarked on her solo career. Just last year, the sultry vocalist collaborated with DJ Calvin Harris and released her first single, Motivation, along with a viral music video.

As we approach Women’s History Month, we’re excited to learn more about how each of these ladies plans to shape the future. 

According to Rolling Stone, “In addition to revealing, in-depth profiles of these three artists, the issue also contains exclusive interviews with Regina King, Stacey Abrams, Natasha Lyonne, and other prominent women in entertainment, sports, politics, and culture.”
