Mark Wahlberg’s History of Hate Crime Resurfaces Following George Floyd Tribute Post

After tweeting his solidarity with the Black Lives Matter movement, actor Mark Wahlberg has received serious backlash about his own sinister history with hate crime… Mark Wahlberg is the latest celebrity to face the wrath of the internet.

The actor, who is known best for his roles in blockbusters such as Ted, Lone Survivor, and The Other Guys, has stirred up controversy this week after he weighed in on the Black Lives Matter movement. Like many other celebrities, Wahlberg took to social media to post a tribute to George Floyd, who was killed at the hands of police officers 2 weeks ago. Alongside a photo of Floyd, the actor wrote, “The murder of George Floyd is heartbreaking. We must all work together to fix this problem. I’m praying for all of us. God bless. #blacklivesmatter.” Nothing too outrageous, right?

Well, his seemingly genuine message of solidarity has ruffled a few feathers, and it’s all because of his own experiences with racism. Now, some of you might be aware that Wahlberg has a rather controversial past. As a teenager, Wahlberg, who comes from a family of 9 siblings in Boston, Massachusetts, dropped out of high school and quickly became embroiled in a life of crime. By the age of thirteen, he was addicted to drugs.

Wahlberg got himself involved in drug dealing, stealing, and all-round violent behavior which would eventually lead to him serving time in prison at the age of sixteen. But, amid the drugs and the violence…

There was an underlying tone of racism. But, of course, no one talks about this.

Over the years, the media has chosen to focus on how Wahlberg turned his life around with his music and acting career, rather than discuss his problematic past with racially-motivated attacks. For example… I bet most of you aren’t aware of the time he verbally and physically assaulted a group of black students in 1986? Wahlberg had been among a group of white teenagers when he came across the students…

And he had proceeded to throw rocks at the group while shouting “kill the n****s”, according to reports. He was only issued a civil rights citation as a consequence of his actions. And, 2 years later in 1988, he went on to unleash an unprovoked attack on two Vietnamese men.

According to reports, when trying to steal beer, he had first hit a random and unsuspecting Vietnamese man in the head with a large stick, and then went on to punch Johnny Trinh in the eye, all while hurling racial slurs. Wahlberg was sentenced to 2 years in jail for his savage attack…
via: Getty
But, of course, he only served forty-five-days behind bars before being released. The actor has only briefly touched upon his crimes over the years…
via: Getty
Speaking to Associated Press in 2014 of his actions, he said: “I have apologized, many times. The first opportunity I had to apologize was right there in court when all the dust had settled and I was getting shackled and taken away, and making sure I paid my debt to society and continue to try and do things that make up for the mistakes that I’ve made.” But the actor has never actually faced any consequences from his actions.

He has gone on to enjoy a tremendously successful career in the world of acting and, in typical Hollywood fashion, his history of hate crimes has been quietly swept under the rug. But now, following from his Black Lives Matter post, people are starting to finally call the actor out… And they are finally sharing his crimes for all the world to see. Could Mark Wahlberg be canceled? Twitter users have had just about enough of his hypocrisy and, as a result, are sharing screenshots of his wiki page to educate the world on his sinister past. I mean, this man has a whole section on Wiki dedicated to his hate crimes… And no one ever talks about it. Says a lot, doesn’t it? Mark, they’ve seen your Wiki page.  Just open your purse. And others are pointing out that this is the perfect example of white privilege. Most people weren’t even aware that Wahlberg had such a shocking history with hate crimes… Would it be the same instance if he were black? Like I said earlier, this is all very typical of Hollywood. The star-studded industry is notorious for covering up shocking crimes and offenses… All in the name of showbiz, right? Wahlberg is yet to respond to the backlash…

Though I wouldn’t be surprised if he never does. For more on the issue of racism in Hollywood, keep scrolling to read what Meghan Markle had to say on her own experiences…

Terry Crews sparks criticism for ‘Black supremacy’ tweet

Terry Crews is facing backlash for tweeting about “Black supremacy.”

The “Brooklyn Nine-Nine” star, 51, spoke out amid the ongoing protests and called for equality, writing, “Defeating White supremacy without White people creates Black supremacy. Equality is the truth.”

“Like it or not, we are all in this together,” he added.

Crews’ “Everybody Hates Chris” co-star Tyler James Williams responded, saying he has “love” for Crews but that he was hurting the Black Lives Matter cause.

“Terry, brother, I know your heart and you know I have love for you and always will,” Williams tweeted in response. “No one is calling 4 black supremacy & the narrative that we are hurts our cause & our people. We’re just vigorously vetting our ‘allies’ because time & time again they have failed us in the past.”

Crews later clarified his “Black supremacy” message, writing: “I understand, Tyler. I was not saying Black supremacy exists, because it doesn’t. I am saying if both Black and Whites don’t continue to work together– bad attitudes and resentments can create a dangerous self-righteousness. That’s all.”

The deaths of George Floyd, Breonna Taylor and others have sparked protests around the world, with celebrities including Spike Lee, Jennifer Lopez, Halsey, Paris Jackson, Billie Eilish and more stepping out to join the masses to fight against police brutality. After Floyd’s death at the hands of a white cop, Crews said his heart was “broken.”

“George Floyd could be me. I could easily, easily be that man on the ground with that police officer’s knee on my neck. That could easily be me,” he wrote.

Mother-of-two in her early 30s who battled stage four lung cancer while pregnant dies | Daily Mail Online

Tributes are being paid to a young mum who died following an ‘amazingly courageous battle’ with cancer.

Leanne Barrett, from Rolleston, who is the wife of Gresley Football Club captain Jamie, was diagnosed with stage four lung cancer in October, 2018 after a growth ‘the size of a pea’ grew into a five-centimetre mass on her left lung.

The mum-of-two tragically died on Friday, June 5, with husband Jamie saying his ‘heart is broken’.

Leanne, who was in her early thirties, was pregnant with her second child Beau, when she received the devastating diagnosis and was given the option to abort her unborn child.

Leanne Barrett from Rolleston, who is the wife of Gresley Football Club captain Jamie (pictured together), has died following an ‘amazingly courageous battle’ with cancer

The mum-of-two was diagnosed with stage four lung cancer in October, 2018 after a growth ‘the size of a pea’ grew into a five-centimetre mass on her left lung. Pictured, with four-year-old daughter India-Lily

However, she dismissed that option straight away, having bonded with the unborn child growing inside her, after already losing his unborn twin before the 12-week scan.

She went on to have son Beau 11 weeks prematurely. Leanne and her husband Jamie are also parents to daughter India-Lily.

Jamie posted on Twitter after his wife’s death on Friday, saying ‘words can’t describe’ his heartbreak.

He penned: ‘It’s with a broken heart that I need to announce that my gorgeous wife Leanne Barrett sadly passed away in the early hours of this morning with her family around her.

‘Words can’t describe. RIP. Love you always, Jamie, India-Lily and Beau.’

Jamie and Leanne got married in 2016, but shortly afterwards Jamie said Leanne developed what looked like a ‘pimple’ on her nose which they got checked once it continued to grow. Pictured, with her daughter

Jamie’s club Gresley FC also paid tribute to Leanne with a statement on its official page.

It said: ‘It’s with very heavy hearts that the club reports the sad news that Jamie Barrett’s wife, Leanne, passed away this morning (Friday) after her amazingly courageous battle with lung cancer.

‘Due to his magnificent service to our club Gresley Rovers/ FC over the years the club has become part of Jamie’s extended family and so we send our love and sincerest condolences to both Jamie and all his family.

‘We’re all here for any need he may have.’

The couple married in 2016, but shortly afterwards Jamie said Leanne developed what looked like a ‘pimple’ on her nose which they got checked once it continued to grow.

Leanne, who was in her early thirties, was pregnant with her second child Beau (both pictured), when she received the devastating diagnosis and was given the option to abort her unborn child

Doctors said this was likely a symptom of an auto-immune disease called sarcoidosis and sent her for a series of CT scans and X-rays, which showed Leanne had a mass of enlarged lymphnodes in her chest, which later tests showed were benign.

But in July 2017, Leanne began to complain of having chest pains and trouble breathing and doctors found the five-centimetre mass on her lung.

After visiting a specialist lung doctor Leanne was diagnosed with stage four lung cancer.

After the birth of her son, Leanne’s cancer progressed and spread rapidly to her liver, bones and brain.

Her husband Jamie set up a fund-raising page to raise awareness of her case and fund the money for her treatment.

The family was blown away when wellwishers raised up more than £30,000 in just two days.

Liam Neeson’s Mother Dies One Day Before His Birthday

It has been revealed that Liam Neeson’s mom has died just one day before his birthday.

The actor has had a lot of loss and heartbreak in his life so this is just devastating

Northern Irish actor Liam Neeson has had his fair share of heartbreak.

And this week’s news truly tops it off.

Liam is really at the top of the big-screen game.

The star, who was born in Northern Ireland in 1952, has been in some of the biggest productions of our time.

The big-screen native began pursuing an acting career in the mid ’70s.

And his breakout role came with the 1993 Holocaust drama Schindler’s List. 

The movie is based on the 1982 novel “Schindler’s Ark” by Australian novelist Thomas Keneally.

And chronicles Oskar Schindler, a Sudeten German businessman who together with his wife Emilie Schindler saved more than a thousand mostly Polish-Jewish refugees from the Holocaust by employing them in his factories during World War II.

Liam garnered an Academy Award nomination for his role in the acclaimed movie.

And it well and truly shot him to box office fame.

The actor went on to headline several films in the ’90s.

Including the likes of Nell (1994), Rob Roy (1995), and Michael Collins (1996), and an adaptation of Les Misérables (1998).

But he had another huge wave of success in 1999…

The actor bagged the role of Jedi mentor Qui-Gon Jinn in the highly-anticipated Star Wars: Episode I – The Phantom Menace.

His career continued on an upward streak through the ’00s.

In 2004, Liam starred in Kinsey which earned a Golden Globe nomination for his work.

The following year, he returned to the superhero genre as Ra’s al Ghul in Batman Begins, and voiced Aslan the lion for the first of 3 movie adaptations of The Chronicles of Narnia.

And of course, who can forget?

One of his most popular roles to date came with 2008’s Taken where he portrays an ex-CIA operative on the hunt for his daughter.

Even in recent years, Liam continues to act.

And his most recent work came just last year in Cold Pursuit. 

While Liam has had a star-studded acting career…

His personal life has been filled with heartache.

In 1994, Liam married English actress Natasha Richardson, with whom he had 2 children.

Natasha starred in the likes of The Parent Trap and The Comfort of Strangers.

But in 2009, tragedy struck. 

On March 18, 2009, Natasha hit her head during a skiing accident in Canada.

At first, she seemed to be fine…

And initially refused to be taken to the hospital.

But tragically she suffered an epidural hematoma…

And heartbreakingly passed away. She was just forty-five years old.

Liam spoke out about his wife’s tragic death in 2018.

“I was told she was brain dead. And seeing this X-ray it was, like, ‘Wow,’” he recalled in October 2018.

“But obviously she was on life support and stuff. And I went in to her and told her I loved her. Said, ‘Sweetie, you’re not coming back from this. You’ve banged your head. It’s – I don’t know if you can hear me, but that’s – this is what’s gone down. And we’re bringing ya back to New York. All your family and friends will come.’ And that was more or less it.”

And sadly, that wasn’t Liam’s only devastating loss.

In January last year, Liam’s nephew, Ronan Sexton, died 5 years after suffering a fatal fall.

He was just thirty-five years old.

In 2014, Ronan was out with friends in Brighton…

He climbed up the kiosk on the city’s seafront but slipped and landed on a concrete subway.

A police spokesperson said at the time of the incident: “Just after 4 am on Sunday a man climbed on top of a telephone kiosk outside Brighton Pier when he fell some 20ft to the ground, sustaining a serious head injury.”

And this week, it seems Liam has received some more heartbreaking news.

His ninety-four-year-old mom,  Katherine “Kitty” Neeson, has passed away.

The actor found out the news just one day before his birthday.

According to PEOPLE, the actor learned of his mother’s passing just one before his sixty-eighth birthday.

According to the outlet, Kitty died on Saturday, June 6 in Northern Ireland.

Devastating. Rest in Peace, Kitty.
