Michelle Rodriguez Says Liam Neeson Can’t be Racist Because He Kissed Viola Davis For Money Once

So I guess this Liam Neeson drama isn’t just going to go away, then. As you may know, Liam Neeson was “cancelled” by a bunch of people because he didn’t kill a black guy 40 years ago. I’m assuming the people cancelling him are a bunch of racists who wanted him to kill a black guy, but I’m not sure, the logic is so hard to tell. All I know is Liam Neeson didn’t attack a black guy and people are outraged about it.

Anyway, even though Liam Neeson both did nothing wrong and has felt guilty about feeling an impulse to do something wrong for 40 years, we’re still talking about if he’s a racist. This is an argument that’s not worth having because people can’t actually even agree on what racism is: the widely understood definition is personal bigotry but sociologists and some activists insist the word only refers to structural injustice. It’s better not to get involved.

Someone who should have not gotten involved was Michelle Rodriguez, who said this, via Vanity Fair:

“It’s all fuckin’ bullshit. Liam Neeson is not a racist,” said Rodriguez at the amfAR Gala New York on Wednesday night. “Dude, have you watched Widows? His tongue was so far down Viola Davis’s throat. You can’t call him a racist ever. 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 bullshit. Ignore it. He’s not a racist. He’s a loving man. It’s all lies.”

I’m pretty sure slaveowners raped slaves all the time, so this is not really a winning argument.

Also, is it just me or does this make it incredibly clear that Michelle Rodriguez wants to f**k Liam Neeson? Did anyone else catch that? She is really interested in what he’s doing with his tongue.
