Mark Wahlberg has had some ‘splaining to do after making bold statements about 9/11 in the February 2012 issue of Men’s Journal. The actor was scheduled to be on one of the planes that crashed into the World Trade Center, but didn’t make the flight.
“If I was on that plane with my kids, it wouldn’t have went down like it did,” he said. “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.’”
Unfortunately, his comments didn’t go over so well with the family members of those who perished in the 9/11 attacks. Wahlberg later retracted his statements via TMZ, 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.”
In 2006, Mark Wahlberg admitted that he thought a lot about 9/11 and what he would have done had he made that flight, saying, “I’ve had probably over 50 dreams about it.” What do you think about Wahlberg’s statements?
