Actor Mark Wahlberg is being called to the carpet this week again after a post about George Floyd brought his his disturbing past involving hate crimes to the light.
Publicist Danny Deraney tweeted: “If you still don’t know what white privilege is, Mark Wahlberg committed hate crimes, has a Wikipedia section dedicated to it, and we never ever talk about it.”
After the events were exposed, the “Hate crimes” section on his Wikipedia page was edited to “Racial incidents.”
Another Twitter user named @JamboEveryone used their platform to highlight that while Wahlberg, has enjoyed commercial success for over the past 30 years, even in the face of his shameful past, Black actors have to worry about speaking truth to power, in fear of their careers being ruined.
“John Boyega is worried he won’t work again because he was vocal at an anti-racism protest but Mark Wahlberg has a slew of hate crime incidents on his Wikipedia page but he has jobs left and right.
