Mark Wahlberg is kinda blaming theÂ journalistÂ for the recent 9/11Â commentsÂ he made in an interview…heÂ claimsÂ the journalist blindsided him with the question and that’s why he answered the way he did. In the interview with Men’s Journal, Mark’sÂ quoteÂ was, “If I was on that plane with my kids, it wouldnâ€™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, weâ€™re going to land somewhere safely, donâ€™t worry.'” Mark then went on to apologize…but now he says he was blindsided,
Mark Wahlberg says he never would have made those “out of line” comments about 9/11 … if the guy asking the questions wouldn’t have blindsided him with the question in the first place.
Wahlberg appeared on Scott and Todd on WPLJ in New York this morning — once again apologizing for telling Men’s Journal he could’ve stopped the Sept. 11 terrorists from hijacking one of the planes had he been on board.
“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.”
But Wahlberg noted it was never his intention to bring up 9/11 — explaining, “I also had a journalist who was asking all the questions and I’m trying to promote a movie â€¦ It wasn’t like all of a sudden I just decided I was going to get on this soap box and start talking about my opinion of 9/11. I was there to talk about the movie.”
