Neeson has denied he is a racist but failed to apologize as he faced the world for the first time on Good Morning America since admitting he wanted to kill a random "black b*****d" after a close friend was raped.
"I went out deliberately into black areas in the city, looking to be set upon", he said Tuesday.
"It shocked me and it hurt me".
Michallon asked, "Liam, your character is, like you said, a normal guy who suddenly - I mean, not suddenly, but, [he] goes on a murder spree". I went to a priest. "Thankfully no violence occurred ever".
"I'm not racist", Neeson said.
"I mean, in this country and same in my own, sometimes you scratch the surface and discover this racism and bigotry, and it's there".
During the interview with "Good Morning America", Neeson said that had the perpetrator of rape been any other race, he would have had the same thoughts about killing a member of that ethnic community.

Their previous worst defeat was by 49 runs to Australia at Bridgetown in 2010. During this period, India consecutively won 10 bilateral T20I series.
Despite attempting to set the record straight, many people on social media and beyond were still shocked with the actor's original reveal.
"It was horrible, horrible, when I think back, that I did that". I'll tell you a story.
Yet another tweet reads: "please free tessa thompson from having to do the men in black press tour with neeson I swear if any of you journalists ask her questions about it like it's her responsibility to comment..."
Later, the 33-year-old singer took to Instagram and wrote about Neeson saying she does not believe in the Taken star's "racist anecdote". The ONLY reason he didn't get to carry out what he wanted is really because of luck.
"A week in his life.where he had dark thoughts.he felt ashamed.and learned".
Hughley responded to Neeson's words on Monday and like many found it odd he wanted to learn the race of the man before anything else.
Liam admitted he sought help for his violent feelings and insisted that he is not racist.
