Angus say Rudd was acting erratic. By which I think he means, he didn't want to re-record Back in Black a 15th time.

Cosby's been getting some blowback at least.

Mark Wahlberg wants a pardon so he can become a reserve police officer, so the Daily Mail tracks down his victim. Apparently, he didn't blind him, just beat the shit out of him.

Oh well then, no big deal. The Wahlberg pardon pursuit upsets me on so many levels.

It was more than 1 victim. I'm curious, since Wahlberg was 16 at the time, was he charged as a juvenile or an adult?

He was charged as an adult.

I get that this sort of thing happens all the time, even for the non-famous but the fact that he has never tried to make apologize or make amends to his victims makes me think he shouldn't be granted anything.

I don't get the big deal. This kind of thing does happen all the time. He's clearly not violent or dangerous currently. It seems pointless to insist that 40-something Mark Wahlberg must still be punished (if even economically, as seems to be the case) for something he did 20 plus years ago as a dumb teen that was already adjudicated.

I also wouldn't buy him making public amends/paying off the victim as anything other than a good publicity ploy, since frankly I don't think he's particularly inclined to do that. He's very pretty and an enjoyable actor, but he's never scored high on the intelligent or compassionate scales - probably part of the reason he was beating up innocent people when he was 16.

That said, his victim going, "He didn't blind me, I was already blind in that eye," is darkly hilarious.

I wasn't expecting a public apology just that he has gone out of his way to state that he doesn't believe he owes an apology to his victims and seems very nonchalant about accepting responsibilities for his actions blaming it on youth.

Didn't he say something along the lines of "I don't need to make an apology because I've forgiven myself"?

I really hope not, or I will actually have to hunt him down and sock him in the throat.

He did say that and frankly doesn't LA have enough racially motivated issues with their cops right now? Maybe don't pardon a dude who along with that, threw rocks at little black children while calling them the n word.

Link:
And though the right thing to do would be to try to find the man and make amends, Wahlberg says, he admits he hasn't done so -- but says he's no longer burdened by guilt.

"I did a lot of things that I regretted and I certainly paid for my mistakes," Wahlberg says. "You have to go and ask for forgiveness and it wasn't until I really started doing good and doing right, by other people as well as myself, that I really started to feel that guilt go away. So I don't have a problem going to sleep at night. I feel good when I wake up in the morning."

Ah, yes, those whopping 45 days.

He's asking for this now because he wants liquor licenses for his restaurants. He had no problem shrugging it off and paying the man he injured no mind for the past 20+ years but now that it's stopping him from adding additional $ to his millions, it's all, "Hey, lemme fly you out here!"

He was a horrible little shit and the fact that he thinks 45 days is enough to pay for all the crap he put other people through makes him look even more like an overprivileged asshole.

Holy fuck. I thought assaulting that one Vietnamese man was all he'd ever really done. I had no idea he had attacked TWO men that same day and also harrassed and traumatized black kids who had wandered into his neighborhood. And he even assaulted someone AFTER he got famous?! He needs to find and apologize to every one of those victims. I can only imagine the fear and trauma that come from being pelted with rocks and having "Kill the n*****" screamed at you repeatedly. That Jesse Coleman guy and his cohorts deserve one hell of an apology as do the Vietnamese men he attacked for no reason and that guy he beat up in '92. I understand that he did those things as an ignorant kid, but just because he considers himself a changed man doesn't mean his victims are totally okay and not still dealing with repercussions from his actions.

He shows no remorse and therefore in my opinion hasn't earned a pardon. He doesn't even care enough to act like he cares more. He's a giant ass who is already better off than he deserves, so he should shut the hell up and be happy with that.

I hope it backlashes on him and more people find out about his past, because it wasn't widely known by the general public.

Yeah, I definitely hope there's a backlash that gets more people to realize what a remorseless, violent and racist douchebag he's been.

Sony Pictures is being sued by Korean rapper Yoon Mi Rae (who is fucking awesome, btw) for using her song in The Interview without payment or permission. So much drama around such an idiotic movie!

How strange is that another Power Rangers actor has been arrested for murder?
