If you see something, say something. But if you don’t see something, also say something.

That was the general feeling in Fairfield, CT last night as 911 was inundated with calls from cable subscribers angry about missing Breaking Bad after a cable outage. The local police, however, weren’t amused and posted the following message on their Facebook page, “We are receiving numerous 911 calls regarding the Cablevision outage. This is neither an emergency or a police related concern. Please direct your inquiries to Cablevision. Misuse of the 911 system may result in an arrest.”

But you have to assume if the cable is out, the internet would also be out so that message probably didn’t reach anybody. Nice work, detectives. (Daily Mail)

It's the mom's. Gross.

While other stations were acknowledging the fallen 11 years ago on an terrible Tuesday morning, NBC’s Today decided to take things in an altogether different direction. By discussing with Kris Jenner (the Kardashian mom) her boob job.

Both are terrifying and sad, but in very different ways. I’m not one for the over-the-top observance of 9/11 by many outlets, but I’m also not one for hearing a Kardashian family member speak, ever, so this morning was lose-lose for me.

Never forget (about Kris Jenner’s breast implants).

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.

Lee Ryan of Blue

“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.

Mark Wahlberg Would Have Stopped The 9/11 Hijackers Because He’s So Awesome http://www.screenjunkies.com/movies/movie-news/mark-wahlberg-would-have-stopped-the-911-hijackers-because-hes-so-awesome/ http://www.screenjunkies.com/movies/movie-news/mark-wahlberg-would-have-stopped-the-911-hijackers-because-hes-so-awesome/#comments Wed, 18 Jan 2012 21:37:18 +0000 Penn Collins http://www.screenjunkies.com/?p=242870 Donnie would have been in the corner, cowering like a little bitch.

In a recent interview with Men’s Journal, Mark Wahlberg claimed that things would have gone much differently on September 11th had he been travelling on one of the doomed planes with his children. Namely, that there would be “a lot of blood in the first-class cabin” and he would eventually announce to the cabin “Ok we’re going to land somewhere safely. Don’t worry.” 

The fictitious passengers in Wahlberg’s mind would stop worrying, put on a brave face, then, after collecting Cinnabon and neck pillows from the emergency airport, they would continue on to their final destination while watching The Happening and Four Brothers, unaware that the war on terror was over before it began.

Kudos to Men’s Journal for their interview tactics. Let this be a lesson to aspiring journalists – if you ever want to make national news with your dumb little interview, ask the famous subject what he or she would have done differently to save the country from 9/11. Gold, Men’s Journal. Gold.

UPDATE: It would appear that Wahlberg realized his comments may have offended pretty much everyone, so he issued this apology. That was issued quickly. Probably as quickly as he would have taken down those terrorists on that plane.
