    Mark Wahlberg Says He Could Have Prevented 9/11 Attacks

    Mark Wahlberg says he could have prevented 9/11 hijacking

    Updated: Thursday, 19 Jan 2012, 7:26 AM EST

    Published : Wednesday, 18 Jan 2012, 2:31 PM EST(FOX 25 / MyFoxBoston.com) - Mark Wahlberg is known for his roles in hard-hitting, action-packed movies, but his most recent claim that he could have single-handedly over-powered the terrorists on 9/11 has many wondering if the actor has gotten caught up in his movie persona.

    In an interview with Men’s Journal , Wahlberg said “"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.'"

    Deena Burnett-Bailey whose husband Thomas Burnett was one of the heroes that rushed the cockpit on Flight 93 told TMZ that she thinks Wahlberg’s comment is “disrespectful” and downright “silly.”

    "Does Mark Wahlberg have a pilot's license? Then I think hindsight is 20/20 and it's insignificant to say what you would have done if you weren't there. "
    She added, “Sounds like someone is grandstanding."

    Wahlberg has not returned calls to TMZ with a comment; however, his movie "Contraband" took the top slot at the weekend box office raking in $24 million, according to early figures

    What an out-of-touch, arrogant dumbsh*t.

    Hollywood "star" giving an interview 10 years later and pontificating his role of "hero."

    Ditto.

    Mark is 100% right on with his statement.

    In a perfect world, no it wouldn't be a problem. Sadly, the truth is nearly everyone who says they would do such and such never do. It is why armchair heroes are looked down upon so much. If he had saved a plane, he would have been a hero. But he didn't, so until he does he needs to stfu, because to me, he sounds like a tool.

    I am going to drop back and punt on this one. I thought it was an asshole comment when I first read it. But I think he hates those animals as much as the rest of us do
    He has since apologized(read below)
    Mark Wahlberg appeared on a morning talk show on New York City’s WPLJ on Friday to once again try and set the record straight regarding the controversial remarks he made to Men’s Journal regarding the 9/11 attacks. The Contraband star told the magazine, “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, ‘Okay, we’re going to land somewhere safely, don’t worry.’” The outlandish statement immediately sparked an uproar, in which everyone collectively reacted, “What?! No. Not you, Mark Wahlberg.”
    On Wednesday the actor issued an apology about the controversial statement, telling People, “To suggest I would have done anything differently than the passengers on that plane was irresponsible. I deeply apologize to the families of the victims that my answer came off as insensitive. It was certainly not my intention.” According to the New York Post, during his time on the Scott and Todd morning show, Wahlberg reiterated, “I was a little out of line with my wording and I didn’t take in to consideration how other people would respond to it or be affected by it.”.

    Dude are you serious. This is a Hollywood action star that think's just because he does heroic stuff on pre-written film that he would do it in real life too. HUGE difference.

    It's a huge slap in the face to people who were on that plane. He is looking back 10 years and sayin "I would have done this". It's a bitch move plane and simple. No pun intened.

    We got to many armchair hero's now a day's.

    Obviously mark did see a problem with it. It was news over here that he made a public apology for being a dumbass.

    Well, he did apologize. I think that people got upset about it because he implied that the people that were on the flight either didn't fight, or didn't fight hard enough. Which obviously that's not true. I like Mark Wahlberg, I'm glad he clarified his comments and apologized.
