Fans of the actor Liam Neeson are criticising the media for its harsh response to his recent race-related admission as it “overlooks” the atrocities Mark Wahlberg carried out against communities of colour.
Imagine canceling Liam Neeson but supporting anything Mark Wahlberg does

Atrocities, which saw him blind a Vietnamese man and attack African-American children.
In June 1986, Mark chased after three black children screaming the words “kill the n******” as he pelted them with rocks.
Then, in the April of 1998, he assaulted an elderly Vietnamese man and blinded him permanently…hours after he launched a vicious attack a middle-aged Asian family man named Thanh Lam with a wooden stick. The innocent man was left unconscious.
These incidents only scratch the surface which is why Neeson critics and supporters have questioned the entertainment industry’s decision to overlook Mark’s crimes as it rightfully condemns Neeson’s.
Liam Neeson is Mark Wahlberg without the felony.

everyone who’s cancelling liam neeson right now needs to either never give their money to support a mark wahlberg movie again or admit that they don’t think vietnamese people are human

It’s terrible that Liam Neeson thought about committing a hate crime. However, it should be noted, Mark Wahlberg ACTUALLY committed hate crimes.

Liam Neeson: “I got angry about my friend being raped, was a racist dickhead, and almost hurt innocent people.”
Everyone: “He should never be in movies again!”

So hey. The Liam Neeson thing is bad. Know what’s worse? Acting on that impulse by, say, curb stomping a Vietnamese man in 1988 so badly he went blind. A lot gets overlooked in the gotcha news cycle but we need to reexamine Mark Wahlberg, like, yesterday.

How many poeple in this thread are refusing to watch Liam Neeson movies? But will watch a Mark Wahlberg movie?

Mark is yet to respond.
Hey guys, you know how liam neeson is getting all this flack, remember how Mark Wahlberg blinded someone in a racist hate crime, and is currently starring in a movie with a tagline ‘feel good for everyone’…
