Mark Wahlberg makes a move to shut up all those making HIM feel bad for making more money. First of all, I have no idea who Michelle Williams is… That might explain a little bit of why Mark Wahlberg made more money to begin with. However, Mark was being shamed for making 1,500 times more money than Michelle Williams. HOW IS IT MARK’S FAULT FOR NEGOTIATING HIS PAY?! She could have easily negotiated a bigger salary, and chose not to because she wanted to re-make All The Money In The World.
Mark Wahlberg is a hard working man. I’m not saying Michelle Williams is not. What I am saying is, Mark has been in films that sell out theaters on a consistent basis. I asked what movies has Michelle been in, and someone responded with Manchester By The Sea… What the hell is Manchester By The Sea?!
Mark Wahlberg has been in countless films! Transformers series, Ted, The Departed, The Other Guys, Pain & Gain, Shooter, The Fighter (My fav), and for you old timers – Boogie Nights! These are all top notch films that have made A TON of money (and there is a lot of other movies I left out), and all you want to come back to me with is Manchester By The Sea?!?!
Anyways, let me get to the point. Mark Wahlberg caught drift of all these softies accusing him of making too much money, and it was making Michelle Williams and apparently a lot of other people who have nothing to do with it pretty angry. So what did Mark do? He donated all of his earnings ($1.5 million) to Time’s Up Legal Defense Fund in part of Michelle Williams. For those who aren’t familiar with Time’s Up, Time’s Up provides subsidized legal support to those who have experienced sexual harassment, assault, or abuse in the workplace.
Everyone was up in arms when they found out what Mark was getting paid, but now that he is doing something so gracious with his money… NO ONE is acknowledging it. We live in such a baiting world, and it’s disgusting to say the least. Everyone is so addicted to drama and attention that once something noble is done about their complaints, they go in like a turtle.
