Liam Neeson Was A Teacher Until He Punched A Student Who Deserved It

Liam Neeson isn’t just a fist throwing badass in movies, he apparently wasn’t afraid to use his considerable set of skills on a student when he was a teacher.

A Redditor this week pulled up an old interview the actor had given in 2012. In the interview, Neeson explains that he was fired from his teaching job because he punched a teenager.

No Liam Neeson wasn’t just being violent for fun, apparently the student pulled out a knife and he acted in self-defense. Despite his heroic act, the school terminated his job.

The student was just lucky that he didn’t go all “Taken” on him.
