"Liam Neeson is not a racist", she told Vanity Fair on the red carpet at the amFAR Gala in New York City on Wednesday.

The 2009 track was written about the far-right British National Party (BNP) and includes the lyrics: "You're just some racist who can't tie my laces".

Allen extrapolated on her feelings in a subsequent Instagram Story: "I don't believe Liam Neeson's racist anecdote, which makes it even more disgusting". It's all bulls-t. Ignore it. He's not a racist. He's a loving man.

Neeson has faced an intense backlash for revealing that after a female friend of his was allegedly raped, he wanted to "kill" someone who was the same race as her attacker - a black man. I'm a fairly intelligent guy and that's why it kind of shocked me when it came down to Earth after having these frightful feelings. He said he would have been looking for a white man if his friend had identified her attacker as white.

Neeson said: "But my immediate reaction was". The lady journalist asked me how I tapped into that.

According to several concertgoers, Allen said: 'Normally, I dedicate this song to Donald Trump, but tonight I'm dedicating it to Liam Neeson'.

Neeson has since apologized for his racist comments, telling "Good Morning America" on Tuesday, "I'm not racist", he said.

"I guess Sony Pictures will soon be hiring Christopher Plummer to replace Liam Neeson in the upcoming Men In Black reboot?" one fan tweeted.

After doing this for nearly two weeks, Neeson said he realized what he was thinking was wrong.

Listen, Neeson, if you really want to show the world how much you've changed, you have to call that "primal urge" what it was: racism.

"I remembered an incident almost 40 years ago, where a very dear friend of mine was brutally raped", Neeson said during an appearance on Good Morning America.

"Oh definitely, if she had said an Irish, or a Scot, or a Brit, or a Lithuanian, I know I would have had the same effect". "I was trying to show honor and stand up for my dear friend in this disgusting medieval fashion".
