Mark Wahlberg: Super Hero Actor or Just Dumb-Ass?



Mark Wahlberg apologizes for 'irresponsible' 9/11 comments
January 19, 2012 | Los Angeles Times

Mark Wahlberg has learned the hard way: Just leave 9/11 alone.

The star of the new movie "Contraband" found himself starring in a 9/11 controversy this week when he revealed that he had been scheduled to fly on one of the planes that crashed into the World Trade Center -- and suggested that he could have single-handedly prevented the tragedy.

"If I was on that plane with my kids, it wouldn't have went down like it did. There would have been a lot of blood in that first-class cabin and then me saying, 'OK, we're going to land somewhere safely, don't worry.'"

The comments, made to Men's Journal in a cover story article, met with swift criticism. It seemed especially cruel considering that the passengers on another hijacked jetliner -- United Flight 93 -- did indeed rise up against the terrorists, sacrificing their own lives and crash-landing near Shanksville, Pa., rather than allow the plane to fly into a target in the nation's capital.

Now, Wahlberg is trying to leave those 9/11 magazine comments on the cutting room floor, telling TMZ, "I deeply apologize to the families of the victims that my answer came off as insensitive, it was certainly not my intention."

He added: "To suggest I would have done anything differently than the passengers on that plane was irresponsible."

Many Americans likely tried to put themselves in that 9/11 scenario, imagining themselves getting the upper hand or taking revenge on the terrorists. But for Wahlberg to suggest that he could have somehow single-handedly stopped the hijacking, and then landed the plane safely in Manhattan (perhaps a la Captain Sully Sullenberger)? For many people, that was just too much.

And so Wahlberg become the latest celebrity to wade into treacherous 9/11 waters. Among them: Tony Bennett, Rosie O'Donnell and Jesse Ventura.

I'm calling b.s. that pussy would be hiding in the bathroom balling his eyes out and shitting his pants (probably wouldn't have enough common sense to use the bathroom he would be cowering in) he doesn't even do his own stunts in a controlled environment definitely not in a real life situation if anything he might throw his kids at the terrorists thinking that would stop them what a moron lets all hope he makes it to the death section to test his theory

He forgets one thing.

Real life aint a script where the bad guys hold still while you politely eviscerate their necks.

I would be shitting it, and so would anyone else......comments made were stupid, but he clearly didn't make them with the intention of upsetting people.

He said this same thing jokingly on Howard Stern years ago. I never really thought much of the comments.

Re: Mark Wahlberg: Super Hero Actor or Just Dumb-Ass?

The events might not have happened the way they did. Maybe Wahlberg or someone else could have stopped 9/11 from taking place who knows. But nothing can be done about it now no one can go back in time it's just a "what if.." Nothing is wrong with what Wahlberg said.
