Mark Wahlberg Apologizes For His Insensitive 9/11 Comments

|

Mark Wahlberg is very quickly retracting his incredibly insensitive, inappropriate comments about 9/11. The actor went on record in an interview with Men’s Journal where he ended up on some really weird speculation trip about the events of September 11. The actor told the magazine that he was actually scheduled to travel on one of the planes but had changed his mind and booked an earlier flight. Had he stopped there, then we would have been okay. But he shot his mouth off completely saying that if he had actually been on United Airlines flight 93, he would have prevented 9/11 from happening. There’s fantasizing and then there’s complete bulls— and this falls into the latter, especially when he commented, “If I was on that plane with my kids, it wouldn’t have went down like it did.” He also added, “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.”

As you can imagine, when common sense returned to him, he was probably as aghast by his comments as we were. He has issued an apology saying, “To speculate about such a situation is ridiculous to begin with. I deeply apologize to the families of the victims that my answer came off as insensitive, it was certainly not my intention.”
