Later that day the red carpet for the NY premiere of his latest action thriller Cold Pursuit was cancelled, though the screening itself went ahead.
Responding to the backlash his comments had drawn, the 66-year-old Irish star told the US television network ABC's "Good Morning America" on Tuesday that "I'm not a racist".
She told the crowd: "Normally, I dedicate this song to Donald Trump, but tonight I'm dedicating it to Liam Neeson". I'm a fairly intelligent guy and that's why it kind of shocked me when it came down to Earth after having these awful feelings. He told interviewer Robin Roberts he is not a racist and moved past his desire for violence after seeking help from a priest and from friends. "Skills that I have acquired over a very long career", tweeted David Baddiel, referring to the famous speech Neeson delivered in the original Taken.
"God forbid", Neeson said.
Appearing on Good Morning Britain, Peters joked to hosts Piers Morgan and Susanna Reid: "I'm going to lock the front door just in case Liam Neeson's in the area".
"You also have to understand the pain of a black person hearing what you said", she said.
In an interview published by The Independent on Monday, Neeson opened up about his reaction to learning someone close to him had been raped.
"Sometimes you just scratch the surface and you discover this racism and bigotry and it's there", he added on "GMA".
He said of his friend: "She handled the situation of the rape in the most extraordinary way".
The Hollywood star provoked widespread criticism after he told The Independent that he had walked the streets armed with a cosh, hoping he would be approached by someone "so that I could kill him" after his friend told her she was attacked by a black man. "I'm not sure if he's so remorseful of telling the story or of the actual action of wanting to exact revenge, exact violence against a black person". "You immediately went to race", she stated. The ONLY reason he didn't get to carry out what he wanted is really because of luck.
Another celebrity to defend Neeson was John Barnes after Piers Morgan slammed the Taken star for the comments.
'It's been spun - if you want to think about what he's actually saying, he's saying he was ashamed and horrified by the way he felt'. Another fan suggested Crews was "being too nice" in his Twitter statement.
