Last week, we reported that the Hollywood star Liam Neeson was forced to suffer through an awkward appearance on “The View” in which a compilation of all the times Joy Behar has talked about her disturbing crush on him was played. Now, Neeson is firing back by publicly admitting that he felt “uncomfortable” with Behar on the show.

But first, check out the bizarre segment in the video below.

Neeson Felt ‘Uncomfortable’

“I was in the dressing room drinking a cup of tea, turned the TV up, and I thought, oh, this will be great,” Neeson, 70, told Rolling Stone. “They’re talking about gun violence in America, and I agree that it’s an American problem. I go onstage and join the ladies during the break, and I was congratulating them on this discussion.”

“And then our segment starts, and it’s just all this BS with Joy and Liam Neeson and having a crush, and I’ve known Whoopi for years and Joy a little bit, but I just wasn’t impressed,” he continued. “I’m uncomfortable in those situations, you know?”

Neeson only seemed to have a positive experience with co-host Sunny Hostin, who he said that he had a “good, intelligent conversation” with afterwards.

“But then the segment’s all about this — oof — 13-, 14-year-old crush. It’s just a bit embarrassing,” he added.

Awkward Segment Crosses The Line

Daily Mail reported that in the awkward compilation video, Behar could be seen saying, “I would just like to have my ashes sprinkled over Liam Neeson.”

Behar could later be seen saying that she can love both Neeson and her husband Steve Janowitz, who she’s been married to since 2011.

“There’s room in my heart for Steve… and for Liam Neeson, let’s say,” Behar said. 

Referencing Neeson’s popular Taken movie series, Behar also said, “I mean Liam Neeson right now, those kidnapping movies that he does get me so aroused, I can’t tell you.”

For once, Behar appeared to be speechless when the segment came to an end.

“Am I blushing? Am I blushing?” she said, with Neeson asking her,  “You received the checks, right?”

“I have… I’m sorry, I’m speechless at this point,” Joy replied as she looked down. “How embarrassing when they put them all together like that!”

Behar concluded by placing the blame on “The View’s” executive producer Brian Teta, saying, “That was evil, Brian. Embarrassing me… and Liam!”

It should also be noted that in perhaps her most insulting comment about Neeson of all, she once compared him to President Joe Biden.

Behar Will Likely Get Away With This

If a woman went on a show full of men and was treated the way that Neeson was by Behar and her fellow co-hosts of “The View,” it would have been seen as sexual harassment, and the left would be up in arms about it.

Since it was the radically liberal Behar harassing a man, however, she likely will face no consequences for what she did, regardless of how “uncomfortable” it made Neeson feel.

In the end, we feel terrible for Neeson, as it’s hard to think of anyone who it’d more disgusting to be sexually objectified by than Joy Behar.
