Wow... I feel bad for Mark Wahlberg (soz bro)


Wow. This is one of those really-not-so-rare moments where I feel like a complete asshole.

You know what the problem with blogging is?  It's the worlds greatest game of Chinese whispers or in this case, Vietnamese whispers (wait - don't scream racist yet, I'm getting to a point).

Mark Wahlberg is seeking a pardon for crimes he commited as a 16 year old boy (see previous story here) and because he's trying to help fringe elements of the community and as it is considered work that is part of the legal system, he is being hindered by his criminal record.  While he is absolutely on record as having been massively racist as part of this by attacking and repeatedly using racist slurs against two Vietnamese men, it was also suggested he blinded one of the men and never made an apology or reperations.

Well I hate racists and was pretty blunt on this story last time... Now however the person he 'blinded' has now come forward and said this:

Story via The Blemish

Johnny Trinh, the Vietnamese guy Mark Wahlberg punched in the eye and, people assumed, blinded, has forgiven him. Trinh tells the Daily Mail that everyone was once young and reckless and that he’d like to see Wahlberg be given a pardon.
“He paid for his crime when he went to prison. I am not saying that it did not hurt when he punched me in the face, but it was a long time ago,” Trinh said. “He has grown up now. I am sure he has his own family and is a responsible man.”
Wahlberg and Trinh crossed paths after he had struck another Vietnmaese guy carrying crates of beer with a five foot long stick. Mark, fleeing, ran into Trinh who he pleaded with to help him hide. Once patrol cars left, he punched him in the eye.
Trinh also cleared up a long-standing rumor and stated that he was already blind in that one eye from fighting in the war.
That part is great news. Mark didn’t blind him at all after he punched him in his bad eye after asking for help. Now he’s slightly less of a jackass.
Trinh says he’d like to meet Mark in person. No word yet on if Mark is open to it as his conscience is clear.
