    There are a whole host of allegations, certainly, but the social media quagmire and ANN smear campaign are reaching a little far.

    FWIW he's apologized in statement and in-person to address this issue.

    Someone not something. Black people aren't objects.

    And again, I don't see why you can't see that people might be upset or outraged that a famous person whom they might like/admire once used to walk around with a weapon with the intention of getting a fight with specifically black people.

    It's a sad thing that happened to his friend but that doesn't excuse his actions or make them any less racist.

    Of course they aren't and of course it was racist. And he didn't actually harm anyone. Literally someone saying the n word right now would do more harm than what Liam Neeson did.

    And to be clear, I know that people would be upset. But people get upset at stuff that doesn't need to matter all the time.

    Like, the US Democrats had a Senator in recent years who was literally a former KKK member and then condemned his own actions.

    me and my friend were heading to the store to make dinner for his girlfriend. we had taken this route almost every day and the clerks all knew who we were. then some cops flashed their lights at us and stopped us. they said they were looking for a robbery suspect and when my friend asked for his description, one of them said "he looked like you". keep in mind, we dress like fuckin' nerds. hell, i was wearing crocs, just for moments like this. now i was trying to keep cool and answer his questions, because here in america, a black man can get taken in/killed for no real reason. but what they didn't know was my friend was ex-NYPD. in fact, he was on duty during 9/11. so needless to say, he knew enough about police procedure to know what the deal was. so after running our IDs and seeing we both had no priors and/or warrants, they let us go.

    Probably not, One Punch Man is from a Seinen magazine published by Jump and isn't actualy a part of Shonen Jump itselfs.

    That sucks, dude. The best thing you could have done was stay calm. That's what my mom told me when all this tension first started a few years back. If you get heated, things will escalate in a heart beat.
