Mark Wahlberg

I Would Have Fought

9/11 Hijackers & Landed Plane

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

0118_mark_wahlberg_BN_01
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?

I don't think it was meant to slam the passengers..Just a wishful thinking thing outloud...how many times have people thought, wow, if that had been me, I would have done xyz and saved the day!..All of us have done that over the years!

Yes it is insulting. The crash was the outcome of the passengers attacking the highjackers. What makes Markie Mark think he could have done a better job. Who does he think he is Chuck Norris?

Maybe there was a hero who did step up and took most of the bad guys out, but just couldn't do it on his/her own. One bullet neatly placed, one slash to the throat...hero down. Love ya mark, but there are some things better left unsaid.

Screw Marky Mark... Freaking Poser. Her is an actor. He is a wanna be rapper. He is a pampered boy who thinks he is the tough guy he portrays in his movies. Hey Funky Bunch, Jeremy Logan Glick, look up the name arse-hole! If a 10th degree black belt could not make the plane safe, then what is your punk ass going to do? Screw you! What ever respect I had for you just flew out the window.

every one forgets it was a different world back then when we thought the best chance to make it out alive from hijackers is to go along with demands not to fight back - no one expected what happened, it was the first time some thing like that ever happened- so yes today every one will fight back and i don't think 6 men with box cutters could ever do this again, but mind set was different b4, not fighting back used to be the safest route

hehe    

people arent mad at him for saying he would fight back. they are mad that he is arrogant enough to think he has some sort of superhero ability that would allow him to do a better job than the GROUP of passengers that did fight back on flight 93. its like he's saying the passengers didnt try to do anything, or werent capable enough to do it as well as he could. and to top it all off, land the plane safely. i never did like this SOB and you all can see why
