    This argument would apply equally to anybody. Neeson simply happens to be a prominent example.
    Again, so what's your ideal here?

    Nothing happens?

    Also, most people who secretly committed racist crimes aren't going to be made more likely to tell the world about it if Liam Neeson doesn't suffer any consequences. They are more likely going to be emboldened to do more racist crimes.

    My ideal is people acknowledging and talking about what Liam Neeson almost did, how it was racist and indicative of anger management issues. And then not demanding anything actually happen to Liam Neeson since he didn't actually harm anybody and agrees it was a horrible thing he almost did.

    Note your different premise here. Neeson did not commit a racist crime, which I imagine is part of why he thought talking about it would be okay.

    Cooooool, so no consequences for a dude admitting to carrying a weapon with an intent to beat up a black person simply because they are black.

    Sssssssuper...

    Cooooool...

    ...

    Would you prefer if I said "People who secretly did really racist things,"?

    Either works for my sentiment.

    Neeson did a really racist and dangerous thing. Him not being held accountable for that simply makes it seem that doing said racist and dangerous thing is actually not that bad.

    I think this line of discussion might be heading towards a bad direction, so I request that we put a damper on it for now. Either take it to PM land or the political thread please.

    15 years ago people walked away.
    I guess they didn't hear Square-Enix say:
    Please,
    Oh Baby,
    Don't go.

    It's my birthday!
    Critics who treat adult as a term of approval, instead of as a merely descriptive term, cannot be adult themselves. To be concerned about being grown up, to admire the grown up because it is grown up, to blush at the suspicion of being childish; these things are the marks of childhood and adolescence.

    Where you lookin"? It has 86% on Metacritic and all of the review sites I've been to sans Polygon scored it similarly to KH2 and slightly higher. Most people are just upset about the ending since spoilers:
    Sora dies, though the secret ending shows that he still alive somewhere in Japan. Then there are the people who honestly thought this would be the final game and were angry over being proven wrong.
    end of spoilers.
