Allen addressed his comments on stage during her No Shame Tour in Sydney, introducing the song by saying: “Normally, I dedicate this song to Donald Trump, but tonight I’m dedicating it to Liam Neeson.”

The song - which comes from her second album It’s Not Me, It’s You - includes the lyrics: “You’re just some racist who can’t tie my laces. Your point of view is medieval.”

It comes after the 66-year-old actor told a journalist during a press junket for his upcoming film Cold Pursuit that he "went up and down areas with a cosh" hoping to kill a "black bastard", after being told that unnamed loved one had been sexually assaulted by a person of colour.

However, writing on Instagram about Neeson's comments, Allen wrote: “I don't believe Liam Neeson’s racist anecdote, which makes it even more disgusting.

“I don’t know a woman who hasn’t been harassed and I have never heard of an instance where a man has actually gone out to defend her honour. It just doesn’t happen.”

The red carpet opening of the 66-year-old's new film - which sees his character take violent revenge against drug dealers who he believes killed his son - has already been cancelled in the wake of the interview being published on Monday.
