So for those of you who don't know, Liam Neeson said in an interview that in the past when his friend had been raped by a black man he went round pubs for a few weeks afterwards looking to kill another black guy as revenge. This was after asking what race the attacker from his friend, and he also referred to the man as a "black bastard". He went onto say, "It was horrible, horrible, when I think back, that I did that," and he was "ashamed" and "It’s awful. But I did learn a lesson from it, when I eventually thought, ‘What the fuck are you doing,’ you know?" It's attracted a backlash, particularly because Neeson asked about the guy's race when talking to his friend about the attacker - with some likening him to a white supremacist. I'm pretty annoyed about the response to be honest. It takes a lot of balls to say you did something to admit to something incredibly wrong unsolicited from your past, especially with a view of others being able to learn from it and you taking a reputational hit. Yet people who supposedly would want to encourage more debate on the issue instead are the ones putting a target on his back and saying he's what is wrong with society, despite Neeson having learnt from his mistakes. I just don't understand what people are looking for these days. You have Liam Neeson, taking ownership of a mistake so people can learn for it - "He's a racist!" Then you have people like James Gunn or Kevin Hart who forgot about objectionable tweets they made in the past - "They should have come clean way before now!" Maybe we're moving to a golden age where everyone has so-called woke sensibilities and skeletons in your closet will be a thing of the past, but that doesn't seem near in sight to me so you would think people would realise that other people aren't infallible all the time. I guess I'm finding the intolerance of a lot of these tolerance preaching people pretty alarming.
