Mark Wahlberg's Attack Victim From 1988 Forgives Him, Wants Him to Get Pardoned

Mark Wahlberg's Attack Victim From 1988 Forgives Him, Wants Him to Get Pardoned

Mark Wahlberg and his lovely wife Rhea Durham attend the premiere of his film The Gambler held at AMC Lincoln Square Theater on Wednesday (December 10) in New York City.

The 43-year-old actor, who was joined at the event by his co-star Brie Larson, appeared on The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon that same day where he played an epic game of Slapjack.

Mark recently requested a pardon for his crime of beating a man back in 1988. Now, the man, Johnny Trinh, is coming out and saying he forgives Mark.

“I was not blinded by Mark Wahlberg,” Johnny told the Daily Mail. “He did hurt me, but my left eye was already gone. He was not responsible for that. He was young and reckless but I forgive him now. Everyone deserves another chance. I would like to see him get a pardon. He should not have the crime hanging over him any longer.”

FYI: Rhea is carrying an Edie Parker clutch.

    Not until all pot possession hard prison sentences are dropped and PARDONED. Mark Walhberg didn’t just assault THIS man but one other, it was a hate crime and last I checked hate crimes do NOT get pardon; oh and he was arrest for substance abuse and ROBBED a store.

    He did just 45 DAYS in jail for all that.

    Mike Brown was SHOT for doing less.

    Oh this is just going to piss off so many other people.

    No Pardon. He’s rich and he’s famous, he has a business yet thats not enough… there are families out there who aren’t as vile and they need their loved ones home – pardon them.

    I’m glad the victim forgives him. But true repentance includes paying for your crime. THEN you are truly forgiven. I don’t know and don’t care to find out: if he did the time, good, if not, he needs to.

    As for hate crime, I hate the phrase hate crime. My black cuban dad was stabbed by black guys when I was a baby and shot by black guys sent by a cuban guy when I was 10. He later spent 4 years in a federal prison for drug trafficking. Guess who he hates? The government. What about the stabby guys and the snooty guys? Pretty sure they hated him. And they look just like em. ALL crimes imply hate. Hate crime implies race. White kids picked on me. Black kids too. But black kids pick on my mixed kids. Why don’t the white kids? Cuz there ain’t but a few at that school. And they all pick on each other Hate is color blind crime is color blind. It may be a motive, but maimed, crippled, or dead is maimed, crippled, or dead, whether you got caught cheating and shot in the head, taken hostage at a bank and shot in the head, or called a racial slur. And shot in the head.

    Omg how much did Marky Mark pay this guy off lol to speak on his behalf

    Brown was shot for attempted murder.

    So if a white person attacks someone that’s a different color than them, it’s automatically a hate crime? Do you have proof that Mark Wahlberg attacked the man because of his race.

    So hardcore anti gun Liberal Mark Wahlberg wants to become a cop and carry a gun. F**k off Mark!
