Why hasn't Mark Wahlberg been cancelled?

It's truly the most puzzling mystery of the woke era. He must been sucking some of the most righteous dicks of all time to have come away unscathed all this time, which others have lost everything for much, much, much less.

I think it's because all of this has been known since the mid-90s. It's not like someone uncovered this out of the blue.

And he's tried to apologize for it, but not really very well.

R6 That's hardly unusual. Plenty of cancellations have happened on well-known information. All it takes is a viral think piece to set it in motion. It's just that nobody that matters seems willing to write or publish one about him.

by Anonymousreply 7January 5, 2022 2:29 PM

I learned about this incident from reading his Wikipedia page many years ago. It's never been a secret. Hollywood just doesn't care and as for his audience, there was no video camera recordings. For many, if you can't see it, you can just brush it off.

Marky Mark made his whole career off of pandering to thirsty gays. Performing in gay clubs and his Calvin Klein modeling shoots. That workout video he released as likely purchased for different reasons. His (fake) dick in Boogie Nights. In the early 2000s, he became boringly hetero and chose to make shitty action films for straight dudes. He's still an idiot.

by Anonymousreply 8January 5, 2022 2:30 PM

Because it was pre-Hollywood teenage violence.

A surprising number of people still don’t know about it and a lot of those who do know excuse it because he has turned his life around. I can’t help but remember every time he has a new movie come out but I also see all of the charity work he does.

There are celebrities who have done atrocious things at the height of their career who still have fans, sometimes it depends on who you are and who is willing to shell out money to promote you.

R13 The music business works completely differently. Chris Brown isn't booking any big stages but there are plenty of other platforms accessible to him. It's virtually impossible to truly cancel a musician because you can't stop him from renting an arena, and you certainly can't stop fans from showing up.

The movie business is a whole other story. All it takes is for the studios to stop hiring him, and he's done.

I think it boils down to three things:

1) None of Mark’s crimes seem to include a woman. At least not one that’s willing to talk. If he had one DV issue Men Are Shit Twitter would make sure to bring it up every once in awhile which would provoke a few thinkpieces. Older Asian men aren’t a protected class so it’s not likely to trend.

2) Mark has kept his nose clean for the better part of two decades. Played the game, not gotten in any trouble, no real relationship drama — just does his movies, works out, and plays golf. It would be a little corny to bring up his past misdeeds now simply because he does appear to be a different person.

3) Mark isn’t part of the Woke brigade. He’s not always out there moral grandstanding so he isn’t a target. If he was on his high horse there might be more incentive to knock him off.

Possible fourth reason: the Halo effect. I don’t care how diverse we get, we’re not too eager to cancel handsome (white) men.

by Anonymousreply 23January 5, 2022 3:07 PM

What happened between him and Clooney?

An old DL thread mentioned he had originally been cast in Matt Damon's role in Ocean's 11 but George's team panicked when the two of them wanted to share a hotel room during filming and replaced him with Matt. Did Georgie break Markie's heart? Those old threads also suggested that after this close call George's team demanded he "date" in Europe which is when he got the place in Italy.

R24 the way I’ve heard the Cloonz/Marky story told, is that Mark fell for George when they shot THREE KINGS, and that they were a relatively happy couple shooting THE PERFECT STORM, but then as the 2000s really got underway George started setting his sights higher and felt that Mark with his checkered past and his ghetto image would hold him back. The breakup cut Marky badly, and after that he cut all contact with George and vowed to be successful on his own terms without an older star propping him up.

You can't be canceled if your audience is made up of people who don't like what people deem Cancel Culture.

A guy who does dumb blockbusters like Transformers, comedies that revel in their offensiveness like Ted, and patriotic dad movies like Lone Survivor can't be canceled, at least at the box office. His fans just don't care.

Mel and Mark used the casting couch. They knew the game. Doesn't mean they liked gays. Hollywood is a mostly straight white man's club and they're in it. There are gays in power in Hollywood but they are usually sellouts and will throw other gays under the bus. Most minorities in Hollywood are sellouts. There's a lot of Jewish producers, directors and actors but they don't give a shit about antisemitism and representation. Because every powerful person in that industry is motivated by money rather than ethics. It's funny because many Hollywood movies in the 1940s, 1950s and 1960s seemed far more liberal and socially conscious than today.

R82 You mean because Jordan and Jonathan are actually talented, polite and not at all trashy thugs? Both of them have banging bodies too for their age. Jordan gets bonus points for calling out Kirk Cameron publicly for his homophobia. From what I know both of them are more introverted individuals. Jordan could have been on a soap opera with his looks and I think had he pushed for a solo career after NKOTB started breaking up like 1993 or 1994, he would have been more successful than waiting until 1999.

The Wahlbergs are just attention whores with no talent. Their 'buff bro" mass appeal is from spreading those cheeks for Hollywood execs. Mark got lucky with Marky Mark getting that single and the Calvin Klein ads. He ditched hip-hop and the gay pandering as soon as he got roles in Fear and Boogie Nights and became a white straight mainstream action hero.
