So, normally I would do a Miscellaneous Junk that Pisses Me Off post right about now, but when I ran across this story, I knew it needed its very own post. I warn you now: this next post is a bit heavy… because I intend to rip Mark Wahlberg a new one!!!
Mark Wahlberg — who I normally love — has seriously pissed me off!!! Marky Mark, if you didn’t know, was actually scheduled to be on one of the flights that crashed into the World Trade Center on September 11th. And as we all know, the brave and heroic passengers aboard Flight 93 gave their lives to save others, fighting back the hijackers. And although the plane went down, they fought courageously. But, apparently, Mark Wahlberg thinks he could’ve done it better! Yeeeeeeeaahhhh…. BITCH!
Wahlberg is certain that he could’ve done what the passengers aboard Flight 93 on that cursed day weren’t able to do: save the plane and land it safely. In his recent interview with Men’s Journal, Mark had this to say: ‘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.”
WHAT… THE… FUCK!!! How DARE he!!! The audacity of this man astounds me, truly. I’m sure we have all thought of what we would have done in those panic filled moments. Would we have sat silently crying in our seats in a state of utter shock? Would we have screamed or dropped to our knees in prayer? Or would we have been one of those brave few who stood against those that had set out to harm us and our fellow countrymen? Would we have been strong enough, calm enough, brave enough to take action? But, in all of that pondering, I highly doubt any one of us thought — much less SAID — that we could have done it better!
These remarks made by Wahlberg are blatantly offensive to the memories of those men and women who lost their lives over that Pennsylvania sky that day. I truly cannot believe he said such a thing. TMZ, obviously thinking the same thing, posted a poll asking their readers if Mark’s statement defiled the memory of those who fought to keep others safe. Out of 65,689 people that have taken that poll in only the two hours that it has been up, 71% said YES, he was disrespectful. And with that, I will leave you with these final words: WHAT A DOUCHEBAG PRICK MOTHER FUCKER!!!!!!!!
Rest in Peace, Brave Ones…
