Fresh off the heels of one controversy where he awkwardly and unfortunately addressed the gender pay gap, Liam Neeson is back at it again… and it ain’t good.
The Commuter star was on The Late Late Show on Irish channel RTE One in an interview that was posted online on Friday in which he makes some questionable remarks about the sexual misconduct allegations that have been levied against a growing number of men in Hollywood.
Neeson — who has not been accused publicly of anything — gave his take on the sexual misconduct allegations and the #MeToo and #TimesUp movements sweeping the country by saying (below):
“There is a bit of a witch hunt happening. There’s some people, famous people, being suddenly accused of touching some girl’s knee or something and suddenly they’re being dropped from their program or something. There are Harvey Weinstein stuff, which is…Kevin [Spacey] too, the Dustin Hoffman thing, I, I…I’m on the fence with that. Because when you’re doing a play and you’re with your family—other actors, technicians, you do silly things, you do silly things, and it becomes kind of superstitious—if you don’t do it every night, you think it’s gonna jinx the show. I think Dustin Hoffman was…I’m not saying I’ve done similar things like with what he did, you know, he apparently touched another girl’s breasts and stuff, but it’s childhood stuff.”
