Speaking to Vanity Fair, the actress said: "It's all f***ing bulls**t".

Daily Show host Trevor Noah sounded off on Liam Neeson's stunning confession about the time he considered a racist murder in a "Between the Scenes" clip posted online Friday.

She said: 'Dude, have you watched Widows? "His tongue was so far down Viola Davis" throat.

'You can't call him a 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. "I hope he and people who hear the story understand the gravity of what he's saying, and that is if you are not careful, you can have inside of you a hatred that is encouraged or grown by the society you live in".

"It's all bulls**t. Ignore it". He's a loving man.

However, it seems Neeson's co-star has retracted her words as she took to Instagram to apologise for her comment. "In a pressure-filled situation, I defended a friend in the wrong way".

"I now realise how insensitive it was, and I had no intention of invoking such a bad historical comparison".

'I have learned from this, and will grow from it.

Earlier in the week, Michelle was embroiled in controversy when she defended Liam Neeson.

"It's a dark comedy, but its basis is revenge". The lady journalist asked me how I tapped into that.

'The lady journalist was asking me how I tap into that and I remembered an incident almost 40 years ago where a very dear friend of mine was brutally raped.

"I had never felt this feeling before, which was a primal urge to lash out". She said it was a black person. "It shocked me. It hurt me".
