It was an anecdote to try to explain how easy it is to become overwhelmed. with the desire for revenge until all sense reason is lost, thankfully in his case temporarily.
Sadly his choice of words was offensive.

A nation's greatness is measured by how it treats its weakest members.

That's about the size of it. I expect most of us have had a time when we were so angry about something, we just wanted to lash out. The important thing is that he recognises this for what it was.

As for whether it has any effect on this new movie or his career, I wouldn't want to bet.

Nothing wrong with the 'anecdote', or the fact that he wanted to share it with the world, but he should have kept the racist language out of it.

I think his career is over..

Wrong in the strongest sense . Why did he relate this after all those years. We are all , probably, guilty of making stupid statements as a younger person but most people would feel embarrassed to admit it .. I don't think Liam Neeson is a racist just an idiot . Liked him in The Mission though :)

He may or may not, be a racist, but he used racist language and seems to have caused a bit of a ' Hoo-Ha ' !

I believe that Neeson would have had the same reaction whatever the rapist’s ethnicity.
He didn't have to make those comments but when tragedy hits home, I understand it's hard to keep a PC attitude.

Nonsense. He did that 40 years ago his reaction at the time,,he was a young man with a different sense of propriety. Today is another world,,he wouldn’t dream of doing it now.. Still the great actor he always was .
