Liam Neeson has been removed from a university prospectus following an outburst where he admitted that he wanted to kill an innocent black man in revenge for a friend’s rape.
The Hollywood actor featured in the “heritage and heroes” section of the Queen’s University Belfast student prospectus in 2018 and 2019 but was quietly removed from the 2020 edition, it is claimed.
The actor was widely condemned when he admitted last month that he went out armed with a cosh to look for “a black b——” to kill.
He said he felt a thirst for revenge after finding out a close female friend had been sexually assaulted.
Mr Neeson made the comments during an interview to promote Cold Pursuit, his latest film, in which his character seeks revenge for his son’s murder.
He later denied being racist but said he had simply been honest and that people should stop pretending to be politically correct.
