However, now, Michelle realizes that her comment was insensitive and made a decision to apologize.

Writing to her 4.7million followers, she said: 'To my friends and colleagues and my fans and community: I want to deeply apologise for my recent choice of words, and poor use of example. "In a pressure-filled situation, I defended a friend in the wrong way".

Speaking at the amfAR Gala in NY on Wednesday, the actress spoke about the controversy surrounding her "Widows" co-star over an admission that he once sought to attack a random black person after learning a loved one had been raped. "I have learned from this and will grow from it", she concluded.

According to him, knowing nothing else about the attacker except for his skin color, Neeson took the streets for many nights armed with a "cosh" hoping to get into conflict with any random black man and kill him.

And during an interview for Vanity Fair, Rodriguez claimed to have proof as to why Neeson was indeed not racist.

Calling the accusations "bullshit", she continued: "Dude, have you watched Widows? His tongue was so far down Viola Davis" throat.

"I remembered an incident almost 40 years ago where a dear friend of mine was brutally raped". You can't call him a racist ever. Racists do not make out with the race they hate, especially in the way that he does with his tongue.

However, after the shocking comments, the Irish actor insisted he's not racist, telling Robin Roberts on Good Morning America: 'We were doing a press junket and the topic of the film is revenge, it's a dark comedy too. I don't care how good of an actor you are.
