Vice Co-Founder Wants to Fight Mark Wahlberg

By now you’ve read Mark Wahlberg’s idiotic remarks about 9/11. Poor guy confused life with one of his action flicks, and said that he could’ve stopped the tragedy from happening. It was almost kind of cute; in a sad, depressing sort of way. Like when you see a cat struggling to figure out the complexities of a paper bag.

Wahlberg has since issued the standard apology, but that wasn’t enough for Shane Smith, one of the Co-Founders of Vice. He took to Twitter to challenge Wahlberg to a fight.

Smith said that if he wins, he will admit that Wahlberg could’ve prevented 9/11. But if Smith wins, Wahlberg has to stop acting. He also spelled Wahlberg’s name wrong. Innocent typo or tantalizing trash talk? You decide.

There hasn’t been a response from Wahlberg yet, but hopefully he’ll take Smith up on the offer. Until then, we’re going to prepare for the fight by watching “Good Vibrations.” We hear Roy Jones Jr. used to do that.
