Mark Wahlberg, why are you bringing up 9/11 in an interview with Men’s Journal? Why are you bringing up 9/11 at all, especially to fantasize about how you could have stopped it from happening? In a new interview, the Contraband star went so far as to say if he had been a passenger on United Airlines flight 93, the events of September 11 would have gone a little different. “If I was on that plane with my kids, it wouldn’t have went down like it did,” Wahlberg says. That’s a pretty big “if,” Mark. As in, the biggest “if” of all time.
What makes Wahlberg’s claims kind of eerie (as well as somewhat insulting and really inappropriate) is the fact that, were it not for Mark’s decision to take an earlier flight, he would have actually been on one of the planes that was hijacked by terrorists. “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,” imagines Wahlberg. Whaaaaa? Do you think Mark’s interviewer just asked about his daily gym regiment and he went off on his absurd tangent? Mark Wahlberg, you keep this up and we will not say hello to our mothers for you.
