The 66-year-old actor was due to appear on The Late Show with Stephen Colbert on Friday night, according to listings published earlier this week.
Now, though, the show’s website has Glenn Close as Friday’s sole guest.
Debate is raging over the Taken star’s admission in an interview with The Independent that he once wanted to kill a random black man.
In the interview, Neeson revealed that discovering someone close to him had been raped many years ago had made him want to take out his anger on a random black person.
The actor said he did not go through with any violence and expressed regret that he had reacted in such a “horrible” way.
