Wahlberg apology for 9/11 comments

Mark Wahlberg has apologised for asserting that he would have stopped terrorists from flying an airliner into New York's World Trade Centre on September 11 if he had been on the plane.

The star of the film Contraband issued his apology after comments he made to Men's Journal drew criticism.

He told an interviewer in the February issue that had he been on American Airlines Flight 11 with his children "it wouldn't have went down like it did". Terrorists flew the plane with 92 people aboard into the north tower on September 11, 2001.

In his apology, Wahlberg said to speculate was "ridiculous to begin with". He said that to suggest he "would have done anything differently than the passengers on that plane was irresponsible".
