'Witch Hunt': Liam Neeson Takes Aim At Hollywood's Sex Allegations

Liam Neeson

"Liam Neeson: witch hunt is a term for false accusations against the vulnerable by the powerful, so it's not an accurate description of holding privileged men in power accountable for their actions".

Asked about the wave of sexual harassment allegations against high profile men in Hollywood, he said, "There is a bit of a witch hunt happening too".

The Oscar victor, who hasn't yet been accused of inappropriate behavior toward anyone, made his comments while on The Late Late Show on the Irish channel RTE One.

Keillor was sacked by Minnesota Public Radio late previous year over allegations of "inappropriate behavior with an individual who worked with him". There are Harvey Weinstein stuff, which is...

In rather surreal circumstances, surrounded by shots of himself from previous films - he was being celebrated on the show after picking up a presidential honour for his contribution to Ireland - Neeson expressed some concern for the way the #MeToo movement was unfolding. "And it becomes sort of superstitious". The Taken star to say he was "on the fence" regarding sexual assault allegations made against actor Dustin Hoffman, who has been also accused of inappropriate behavior by several women. I'm not saying I've done comparable things like what he did.

Neeson described Keillor as an "extraordinary writer, and radio star" and said he was reading about the case recently and recounted what he had read.

Several women have publicly accused Hoffman of sexual misconduct, including two who said he assaulted them while filming 1987 movie Ishtar by inserting his fingers inside them. "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". The concentrate is by all accounts on Hollywood at the moment. But it's across every industry.

And I get sent facts and figures and stuff. "What's more, on the off chance that you read the stuff I've perused about how female workers are being dealt with in ranches, farms, and all whatever remains of it, it's chilling".

Metro.co.uk has approached Neeson's reps for comment.

And @ToastHawk1 added: "Everybody is so quick to condemn Liam Neeson. I really like Liam, but just, no...", wrote another user.
