Hollywood veteran Liam Neeson says the film industry's current sexual harassment scandal has sparked "a bit of a witch hunt" in celebrity circles.
Speaking to Ireland's "Late Late Show," the 65-year-old "Taken" actor suggested that some individuals who have been fired within Hollywood were wrongfully compared to disgraced producer Harvey Weinstein, who faces more than a dozen allegations of sexual misconduct or rape.
There's some people, famous people, suddenly being accused of touching some girl's knee or something, and suddenly they're being dropped from their program or something," Neeson said Friday.
He cited U.S. radio personality Garrison Keillor, who as fired from Minnesota Public Radio late last year over accusations of "inappropriate behavior."
Several men in the film industry, including "House of Cards" star Kevin Spacey and Academy Award nominee James Franco, have faced multiple allegations of sexual misconduct.
