This is a definitely a case of tell some, keep some.

In a new interview Liam Neeson of the famed Taken franchise, admitted to once having racist thoughts about the person who raped a family member of his, even going so far as to hunting random black men for the crime.

“..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 colour were they? She said it was a black person. 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 [Neeson gestures air quotes with his fingers] ‘black bastard’ would come out of a pub and have a go at me about something, you know? So that I could,” another pause, “kill him.”

To be fair, the actor does admit the heinous thought was incredibly appalling, saying, “It’s awful. But I did learn a lesson from it, when I eventually thought, ‘What the f*ck are you doing,’ you know?”

Yeah, Liam…we know.

TELL US: Given the circumstances do you understand his thoughts or should he have kept this to himself?
