Liam Neeson Calls Sexual Harassment Allegations Against Hollywood Men "A Witch Hunt"

"Yes", Neeson started, adding: "There is a bit of a witch hunt happening, too".

"There's some people, famous people, being suddenly accused of touching some girl's knee, or something, and suddenly they've been dropped from their program", Neeson, 65, said on Irish talk show "The Late Late Show".

"There is a bit of a witch-hunt happening", he said.

Neeson continued, talking about how A Prarie Home Companion's Garrison Keillor was a victim who did nothing wrong. "And he immediately pulled his hand back and apologised".

The allegations against Hoffman are only the latest in a wave of claims about sexual misconduct by Hollywood heavyweights, including the producer Harvey Weinstein and the actor Kevin Spacey. However, his opinion got even more troubling when the topic of Dustin Hoffman's alleged sexual harassment and assault came up, with Neeson claiming that Hoffman groping a woman's breast was "childhood stuff". I'm on the fence with that. Multiple women have said Hoffman has sexually harassed or assaulted them, with one woman saying Hoffman exposed himself to her when she was a minor.

That's even though a federal judge ordered the Trump administration to restart the program that it canceled a year ago . USCIS will only be accepting renewal applications from people previously approved for the DACA program.

"Months later, his radio station gets a call from her lawyer saying he inappropriately touched this lady". "Since when you're completing a play and you're with your family, different on-screen characters, specialists, you do senseless things". "And it becomes sort of superstitious".

Keillor, in a statement to The Associated Press at the time, said he was sacked over "a story I think is more interesting and more complicated than the version MPR heard".

The actress took to Instagram to reveal her decision, creating a post that read, "I have learned that some orders for Daya by Zendaya have not been fulfilled and that complaints to the customer service representatives have gone unanswered". That's why 300 women in Hollywood for the objective of supporting victims of sexual harassment and abuse outside the industry, particularly women who work in low-paying jobs that leave them more vulnerable to abuse. The focus seems to be on Hollywood at the minute.

Neeson went on to show his support by talking about what he's learned through his position as a UNICEF goodwill ambassador regarding the treatment of female workers across farms and ranches.
