Latina actress Michelle Rodriguez came to the defense of her Widows co-star Liam Neeson amid controversy over his racist comments about wanting to kill a random black man after a close friend told him she was raped by a black man. And her defense is the most ridiculous ish we've heard all year.

The Widows star fixed her mouth to spew historically inaccurate foolishness about what is and isn’t racism at the amfAR New York Gala 2019 held at Cipriani Wall Street.

“It’s all fuckin’ bullshit. Liam Neeson is not a racist,” the Latina actress told Vanity Fair on the carpet at the event.

She claims he CAN'T be racist because he kissed Oscar winning actress Viola Davis in a scene for Widows.

“Dude, have you watched Widows? His tongue was so far down Viola Davis’s throat," she explained. "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 bullshit. Ignore it. He’s not a racist. He’s a loving man. It’s all lies.”

Ma’am. If you never educated yourself about how black people have historically been hypersexualized, raped, or even entered into a consensual sexual relationship with, by racist white men and women (especially slave masters), keep your mouth shut on the subject.

TV titan Shonda Rhimes and former VP candidate Rosa Clemente had to school Michelle on her ignorance:


Gathered her life.

And so did "Kinky Boots" star Billy Porter. Except, he had to turn in all of his Tom Ford threads the next morning. Cinderella, much?

“I had to give that sh*t back by 11 o’clock today at the Pierre hotel,” Porter told Page Six at a Spring Studios luncheon for E!’s “Front Five."

"I had to return all of it . . . the socks, the shoes, every single piece of it. You don’t have to sign a contract, but 11 o’clock was the drop-off time.”


He added, “I need to get those pumps that they had in that show custom-made for me . . . I do walk better than a lot of women in heels. I would just love to walk the runway; I want those pumps one day!”
