Mark Wahlberg

I Would Have Fought

9/11 Hijackers & Landed Plane

1/18/2012 9:05 AM PST BY TMZ STAFF

Mark Wahlberg claims he could have done what hundreds of other doomed passengers couldn't ... fought off the multiple 9/11 terrorists and saved one of the hijacked planes.

Wahlberg just gave an interview with Men's Journal ... in which he states, "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.'"

So the question ... is Wahlberg's braggadocio insulting to the dead passengers and their families?

1:15 PM PT: Didn't take long ... Mark just apologized for his comments.

How rude and disrespectful!As if all those people were not ready to fight for their lives!! This is a case where actor's need to shut the **** up! We really don't live for their stupid, ignorant opinions!

It was the first time (excluding Egypt Air flight 990) where people were deliberately crashing the plane. With flight 93 the reason it crashed before hitting its target was likely due to passengers fighting back (the news of the other attacks was likely a factor, until that point people assumed it was a regular hijacking). So here we have an actor who claims that not only would he have fought the attackers off (as some people on the plane likely tried) but not only that but land the plane. The man is clearly a simpleton and quite disrespectful to the families of people who lost people on board that flight.

Sounds like he's made one too many action movies.

As long as there would have been no acting involved, he may have been able to pull it off.

Not the best subject to talk about, there's a war because of this, but i get the point, the victims would probably have done the same if they had known the result, unfortunately they didn't know, until was late.

Wahlberg sounds like Tom Cruise.

What has Wahlberg been drinking? Scientology Kool-aid?

Nobody knew the terrorists only had box cutters. They told passenger they had BOMBS, and also, they never indicated they were planning on crashing planes. Had the passengers knew they were going to die anyway, I'm positive they would have took actions similar to passengers on flight 93.

Mark makes it seem as though the passengers who died on those planes should have saved their own lives by 'taking the plane back'.

He insults those who died. Can he fly a jet that takes thousands of hours to learn to do? You know the pilots all had their throats slashed and bled to death in the attacks.

Mark also forgets that there are those who did fight back to get control of their plane. They are the victims of flight 93 that crashed in Pennsylvania after the passengers tried to take the plane back. The terrorists, then crashed the plane after the passengers breached the ****pit.

Mark Wahlberg is a major league d-bag for saying this, and I'll never watch any more of his movies for being so disrespectful to 3000+ people who were taken completely by suprise. F-him....

Just because he plays an action star in movies, does not mean he is one in reality.

What an *******! How can anyone make a comment like that?!? I don't care if you were supposed to be on the plane or not. It does not matter- you were not there, you do not know the cir****tances. Disrespectful!

Can't people express their opinions anymore without worrying about being disrespectful to somebody out there? Political correctness has crossed the line if that's the case.
