Hollywood icon Liam Neeson is facing a ton of heat while promoting his new film “Cold Pursuit” for admitting in an interview that he once sought revenge on someone he described as a “black bastard.”

During an interview with The Independent, the 66-year-old actor recalled a family member being raped many years ago and how “primal” he felt following the assault.

The article goes on to state the following:

“She handled the situation of the rape in the most extraordinary way,” Neeson said. “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.”

Neeson then described waiting outside of pubs with a “cosh” hoping a “black bastard” would spark an altercation.

“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 continued. “It took me a week, maybe a week and a half, to go through that. She would say, ‘Where are you going?’ and I would say, ‘I’m just going out for a walk.’ You know? ‘What’s wrong?’ ‘No no, nothing’s wrong.’”
