9 Idiotic Celebrity Quotes About September 11th

Wednesday, January 18 by

We all know that Mark Wahlberg is very, very tough. We know this because he won’t stop telling us. In fact, if he had been on Flight 11 on 9/11, there would not have been a 9/11. It’s true! According to Mark Wahlberg (who didn’t offer to enlist in the military and fight the forces of Al Qaeda).

He has since apologized, but the Invincible star came under fire today for this quote:

“If I was on that plane with my kids, it wouldn’t have went down like it did,” Wahlberg 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.”

There still would have been a Planet of the Apes remake though. He can’t prevent every tragedy, you guys.

In honor of this incredibly insensitive claim, we’ve rounded up 11 more dumb and selfish things celebrities said about 9/11. Thanks for sharing!

Marion Cotillard

“We see other towers of the same kind being hit by planes. Are they burned? There was a tower, I believe it was in Spain, which burnt for 24 hours. It never collapsed. None of these towers collapsed. And there [in New York], in a few minutes, the whole thing collapsed.”

“It was a money-sucker because they were finished, it seems to me, by 1973, and to re-cable all that, to bring up-to-date all the technology and everything, it was a lot more expensive, that work, than destroying them.”

Marion Cotillard believes it was just easier to hijack three planes, attack The Pentagon, and get the President involved than to hire to contractors to re-cable the World Trade Center.

“What about whales? They are ignoring animals that are more important. Animals need saving and that’s more important. This New York thing is being blown out of proportion. Who gives a f**k about New York when elephants are being killed. I’m not afraid to say this, it has to be said. I’m not afraid to say it and that’s why I’m the outspoken one from the band.”

Thank God someone so important is thinking of the whales.

Rachel Uchitel

“I believe Andy was meant to die because he was too good. I’m almost happy it ended the way it did because I’ve learned so many lessons from him. It would have been tragic if we got into fights and then divorced. I would be a fat housewife with three kids in Sands Point, LI.”

On her fiance’s death in the World Trade Center. She maintains she was misquoted.
