Wahlberg vs. Samberg-- Saturday Night Lies!!!

10/20/2008 2:30 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

We're callin' full B.S. on Mark Wahlberg's supposed "SNL" feud with Andy Samberg -- tell that to your mutha for me!



We're thinkin' the whole thing had nothing to do with hurt feelings, and more to do with hype to promote Marky's new movie. It all starts with Wahlberg's over-the-top reaction to Samberg's "Mark Wahlberg Talks to Animals" sketch -- when the real Mark bashed Andy and the entire "SNL" cast to any lame entertainment news show that would listen. And they all listened.

That was the set-up. Then -- a clue. Wahlberg told Jimmy Kimmel that he was going to fly to NY, find Andy "in the cafeteria" and slap him in the nose. Lo and behold, Wahlberg did go to NY, to the "SNL" cafeteria to be exact, and performed the fake threats/fake make-up sketch with Andy. And -- Mark even plugged his movie during the bit.

Plus -- Marky came off as likeable for being able to overcome his bitterness and appear on the show. It's brilliant. But totally set up.

In conclusion -- CONSPIRACY!

Anyone who couldn't tell that Wahlberg was joking around from the begining is a F*CKING retard. Seriously, how could you actually think it was real? He's not even a good actor.

It was so obvious that he was joking around about breaking Andy's nose. So yeah why not take advantage of the dumb bloggers who are trying to make drama where there isn't none. Hell he got good promo time for it!

I agree. He looked fishy when acting "mad" on Jimmy Kimmel. Doesn't matter though. He is still hot, hot, hot and whatever it takes to get him on tv - I'm all for it. He's a hot, hot man. You can tell that to his mother!!!
