Liam Neeson says harassment allegations in entertainment industry have become "a witch-hunt"

Liam Neeson attends the premiere of The Commuter at AMC Loews Lincoln Square on Monday Jan. 8 2018 in New York

The actor said the sexual allegations sweeping through Hollywood and the #MeToo movement have created "a bit of a witch hunt".

Speaking on the Late Late show, Neeson said that while he was happy that sexual harassment was being exposed in Hollywood he felt that it had "become a bit of a witch-hunt". "There are some people - famous people - being suddenly accused of touching some girl's knee or something, and suddenly have been dropped from their program or something".

Garrison Keillor was sacked by the Minnesota Public Radio in November after the company learned of "his inappropriate behavior with an individual who worked with him".

Though agreeing that the cases of Harvey Weinstein and Kevin Spacey were serious, Neeson admitted to being "on the fence" about Hoffman, who has been accused of groping women on set and exposing himself to others.

"Because when you're doing a play and you're with your family - other actors and technicians - you do silly things", he told RTE's The Late Late Show.

Neeson was quick to distance himself from Hoffman's alleged behaviour, saying: "I'm not saying I've done similar things to what he's done".

People took to Twitter to voice their opinions, with some condemning Neeson for his comments.

Another user wrote,"Liam Neeson on the "Late Late" suggesting that Hoffman might simply rub a co-star's breasts in superstition before a performance. "Childhood stuff". Yeah, if there's a line to be drawn Liam, I don't see it's there".

Neeson: "There is a movement happening."

Several women have publicly accused Hoffman of sexual misconduct, including two who said he assaulted them while filming 1987 movie "Ishtar" by inserting his fingers inside them. It's healthy and it's across every industry. The focus seems to be on Hollywood at the moment, but it's across every industry. But it's across every industry.

Also, historically, witch hunts left a lot of innocent women dead and produced no actual witches, so it might be time to find a new metaphor. I sent her an email of apology later and she replied that she had forgiven me.
