Lily Allen ‘dedicates her song F**k You to Liam Neeson during a Sydney concert’ and brands him a ‘disgusting racist’ after he revealed he once felt a ‘primal urge’ to murder a black person

Lily Allen reportedly dedicated her song F**k You to Liam Neeson during her Sydney concert on Tuesday night. 

The Taken actor, 66, faced backlash this week after admitting he once felt a ‘primal urge’ to ‘murder a black b*****d’ after a loved one was raped. 

And Lily allegedly addressed his comments on stage during her No Shame Tour by calling the actor a ‘racist pig’, several concertgoers claimed on Twitter.

The Smile singer, 33, finished off her second performance in Sydney with F**k You, a track from her second album It’s Not Me, It’s You.

She introduced the song by saying: ‘Normally, I dedicate this song to Donald Trump, but tonight I’m dedicating it to Liam Neeson.’

According to some people in attendance, she then called Neeson a ‘racist pig’.

The song F**k You includes the lyrics: ‘You’re just some racist who can’t tie my laces. Your point of view is medieval.’

Lily later branded Neeson a ‘disgusting racist’ on Instagram, adding that she believes his anecdote that sparked the controversy wasn’t even true. 

‘I don’t believe Liam Neeson’s racist anecdote, which makes it even more disgusting,’ she wrote. 

‘I don’t know a woman who hasn’t been harassed and I have never heard of an instance where a man has actually gone out to defend her honour. It just doesn’t happen.’ 

Daily Mail Australia has contacted representatives for Lily Allen and Liam Neeson for comment.

During an interview with The Independent to promote his new film Cold Pursuit, Neeson described how he walked the streets looking for a ‘black b*****d’ to kill after a loved one was raped. 

‘But my immediate reaction was… I asked, did she know who it was? No. What color were they? She said it was a black person,’ he said. 

‘I went up and down areas with a cosh [a heavy stick or bar], hoping I’d be approached by somebody – I’m ashamed to say that – and I did it for maybe a week, hoping some [making air quotes with his fingers] “black b*****d” would come out of a pub and have a go at me about something, you know? So that I could kill him.’ 

After the interview made headlines across the world, Neeson denied he was a racist but failed to apologise during an appearance on Good Morning America. 

Neeson said he ‘understood’ the hurt his words had caused but insisted: ‘I’m not racist, this was 40 years ago. I had a primal urge. I was trying to show honor for a friend I dearly loved, in a medieval fashion’.
