The following is an exact quote from actor Michelle Rodriguez, which Vanity Fair published on Thursday. Rodriguez was responding to the controversy surrounding her ‘Widows’ co-star actor Liam Neeson, who said he wasn’t racist for saying that wanted to kill some “black bastard” after finding out about his close friend’s being raped more than 40 years ago.

According to Rodriguez, Neeson is not a racist, because you know, this:

“It’s all f–in’ bulls–. Liam Neeson is not a racist. 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 don’t care how good of an actor you are. It’s all bulls–. Ignore it. He’s not a racist. He’s a loving man. It’s all lies.”

Not surprisingly, Rodriguez is getting slammed for what she said:

And so on and so on and so on.

As of this moment, Rodriguez’s Twitter is pretty quiet. Her profile hasn’t tweeted since Wednesday.

For the record, Rodriguez is of Dominican and Puerto Rican descent. So yes, anti-blackness in our community is REAL. But we already told you that. Several times.
