Asked about Dustin Hoffman, who, among other allegations, was accused by former co-star Karen Rossetter of "nightly sexual harassment" during a theatre run of Death of a Salesman in the mid-80s, Neeson said he was "on the fence about that".

"I think what Dustin did was... it's childhood stuff".

"I think Dustin Hoffman".

"It becomes superstitious, if you don't do it every night you think it's going to jinx the show".

Over on Twitter, the customer complaints she alluded to have been prominent, with jilted buyers firing off things like, "I ordered from [Daya by Zendaya] on November 23rd and have yet received a tracking number and I'm scared", and "Ordered my [Daya by Zendaya] order a month ago".

Elsewhere playwright Cori Thomas accused the actor of exposing himself to her in a NY hotel room in 1980 when she was 16.

"I take these matters very seriously and value my fans who have supported DxZ", she added.

Neeson then went on to use the example of Garrison Keillor, the Minnesota Public Radio broadcaster and writer who was sacked by the station past year for "inappropriate behavior with an individual who worked with him".

Earlier in the interview, Neeson gave the example of the dismissal of USA radio star Garrison Keillor, who was dropped from his long-running local Minnesota radio show.

Neeson asserted that such misconduct is different from "other Harvey Weinstein stuff". The focus seems to be on Hollywood at the moment, but it's across every industry. Reinforcing the idea that inappropriately touching women was the norm and therefore OK.

Also, historically, witch hunts left a lot of innocent women dead and produced no actual witches, so it might be time to find a new metaphor.
