Lily Allen has reportedly dedicated her song ‘F*** You’ to Liam Neeson. The 33-year-old singer was performing in Sydney, Australia as part of her No Shame Tour when she announced the dedication.
According to several concertgoers, Allen said: ‘Normally, I dedicate this song to Donald Trump, but tonight I’m dedicating it to Liam Neeson.’
She allegedly went on to refer to Neeson as a ‘racist pig.’ The lyrics to her song ‘F*** You include: ‘You’re just some racist who can’t tie my laces. Your point of view is medieval.’
This comes after Neeson gave a shocking interview while promoting his upcoming film Cold Pursuit and said that he wanted to kill a ‘black b*****d’ after discovering his friend had been raped.
Neeson said: “But my immediate reaction was… I asked, did she know who it was? No. What colour were they? She said it was a black person.
“I went up and down areas with a cosh [a heavy stick or bar], hoping I’d be approached by somebody – I’m ashamed to say that – and I did it for maybe a week, hoping some [making air quotes with his fingers] “black b*****d” would come out of a pub and have a go at me about something, you know? So that I could kill him,” he said.
Although the 66-year-old Northern Irish actor has gone on to declare he is not a racist, Allen remains unconvinced and later published on her Instagram stories that she believes him to be ‘disgusting.’
Allen wrote on the social media platform: ‘I don’t believe Liam Neeson’s racist anecdote, which makes it even more disgusting. I don’t know a woman who hasn’t been harassed and I have never heard of an instance where a man has actually gone out to defend her honour. It just doesn’t happen.’
