So that I could kill him.”
“It took me a week, maybe a week and a half, to go through that,” Neeson said.
Many social media prospects expressed shock at his admission, accusing Neeson of racism.
The Northern Ireland-born actor recounted the story in an interview with The Independent whereas promoting his new thriller “Cold Pursuit,” just a few father who seeks violent revenge for his son’s dying.
He said the incident occurred some time up to now.
Neeson, 66, generally known as his response “horrible,” saying it taught him a lesson in regards to the “primal need” for revenge.
Neeson, who grew up in Northern Ireland via the a very long time of violence commonly known as the Troubles, said: “I understand that need for revenge, but it just leads to more revenge, to more killing and more killing, and Northern Ireland’s proof of that.”
Neeson’s publicist didn’t immediately reply to a request for comment.
