Los Angeles-area artists mocked actor Liam Neeson’s hypocritical stance on gun control by peppering the town with fake movie posters announcing his latest action film, “Run All Night” with a slight change of title: “Gun All Right.”
Neeson has been criticized for making extreme anti-gun comments while earning his keep by playing hard-hitting, fast-shooting characters in such films as “Non-Stop” and the “Taken” series.
“Run All Night,” where he plays a Brooklyn hitman, is the latest.
The artists, who wish to remain anonymous, have had enough of the hypocrisy.
The altered posters depict Neeson pointing a handgun in a menacing manner, just as in the original poster. But that’s wehere the similarity stops.
The artists not only altered the movie title to read “Gun All Right,” but also added a tagline: “One Hypocrite Laughing All the Way to the Bank,” according to Hollywood Reporter.
Neeson claimed there are “too many [expletive] guns out there,” in a Gulf News interview following the Paris Charlie Hebdo attacks. “Especially in America,” he added.
“I think the population is like, 320 million? There’s over 300 million guns,” Neeson said. “Privately owned, in America. I think it’s a [expletive] disgrace. Every week now we’re picking up a newspaper and seeing, ‘Yet another few kids have been killed in schools.’ ”
His comments angered Second Amendment enthusiasts, gun rights groups such as the NRA, as well as Para USA, which provided firearms Neeson used in the film “Taken 3,” the Hollywood Reporter noted.
