Ex-footballer John Barnes has praised Liam Neeson for speaking the 'truth' about his feelings after the actor admitted that he wanted to 'kill a black man' after a close friend of his was raped.

The actor - who was speaking in an interview with the Independent - revealed that he walked the streets armed with a weapon, hoping to be approached so that he could lash out.

The Hollywood actor’s comments have brought an angry reaction on social media, with some people calling for a boycott of his films.
