Michelle issued a response to her controversial comments, writing, "To my friends and colleagues and my fans and community: I want to deeply apologize for my recent choice of words, and poor use of example. In a pressure-filled situation, I defended a friend in the wrong way". "I have learned from this and will grow from it", she concluded.
Speaking at the amfAR Gala in NY on Wednesday, the actress spoke about the controversy surrounding her "Widows" co-star over an admission that he once sought to attack a random black person after learning a loved one had been raped.
As you may remember, the whole scandal started during Neeson's Cold Pursuit press tour when he revealed that a long time ago a black man sexually assaulted a member of his family.
Neeson this week admitted that in the past, after finding out someone he knew was raped by a black man, he walked around hoping "some "black bastard" would pick a fight with him so he could kill him.
She continued, explaining her reasoning: "Dude, have you watched "Widows"?".
Despite this, there was still backlash against him and so, while a guest on Good Morning America, he once again insisted that he was 'not racist'. His tongue was so far down Viola Davis's throat.
"I remembered an incident almost 40 years ago where a dear friend of mine was brutally raped". You can not call him racist, ever. Racists don't make out with the race that they hate, especially in the way he does with his tongue-so deep down her throat.
The actress added: 'I don't care how good of an actor you are.
