His agent was a better negotiator than his co-star's agent, therefore he's sexist!!!!

==================================

Alt-Left Insanity: Liberals Furious Conservative Mark Wahlberg Earned Money
By Dan Gainor | January 11, 2018 2:04 PM EST

Note: Normal people might find some of this offensive. (We hope. Dear Lord, please!)

In these days of woke Hollywood, even famous people dare not outdo women. If they do, they receive the wrath of 1,000 think pieces about how poorly women are treated in Tinseltown.

Yep, Hollywood is racist and sexist and discriminates against conservatives. The media are upset by two of those. I bet you can guess which ones. But Wahlberg (nee Marky Mark) is being reviled because he did something smart. And because he’s conservative.

Here’s the crisis described in the ominous tones only CNN could muster: “USA Today reported Tuesday that Wahlberg was paid $1.5 million to reshoot his scenes, while Williams received a per diem of $80 per day, totaling less than $1,000.” Essentially, Williams agreed to work for almost nothing on All The Money In The World (see the photo) and Wahlberg negotiated a hefty payday.

In an ideal world, WIlliams's agent would negotiate better and the world would move on. But we are now in new territory and the mob has descended on this story. How dare entitled Mark Wahlberg negotiate for more than his costar.

Salon wants him to donate the money he negotiated and earned to “Time's Up or RAINN (Rape, Abuse & Incest National Network),” even though he did nothing wrong. HuffPost wrote: “Outrage Erupts Over Report That Mark Wahlberg Made Over 1,000 Times More Than Michelle Williams.” The article quoted a bunch of Hollywood celebs upset that Wahlberg was either a better negotiator or hired one.

The Daily Beast has already done two whiny think pieces. Here’s the lead to Kevin Fallon’s: “There are actually people who think Michelle Williams didn’t deserve to be paid as much as Mark Wahlberg. Let that sit in your brain for a while.” He called it, “yet another egregious injustice.” Actually, it’s her fault for agreeing.

I don’t blame WIlliams for being a team player and just trying to get the movie done. But Fallon is berserk. “Folks, Michelle Williams didn’t just deserve equal pay to Mark Wahlberg for her work in All the Money in the World. She deserved more,” he wrote. Only she didn’t. He’s a big-name star. She isn’t.

Daily Beast’s hateful loon Ira Madison III, used it as an opportunity to bash Wahlberg and dredge up much-reported misdeeds Walhberg did when he was 16 -- 30 years ago. As Madison III wrote, “Mark Wahlberg did something gross. Is anyone at all surprised?”

Let’s put this in perspective for a second. Wahlberg was a rotten teen. Madison III is a rotten adult. In July, he tweeted about Press Secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders: “Butch queen first time in drags at the ball.” He later nominally apologized for his “ill-judged joke." But he also mocked Jeff Sessions for using an Asian-American girl as a “prop.’ That girl was his granddaughter.

That kind of sexist buffoonery was OK, though, because Madison III is liberal and Wahlberg is not. Wahlberg has played golf with Trump. He said he’s ”optimistic” about the Trump presidency soon after the election. Naturally, the left wants to destroy him.

That all takes us to the column and we’ll start with another whine about money:

Liberal Hypocrites, Episode 43,287,001,823: Imagine you work for a crazy, alt-left outlet run by one of the richest people in the world. Your day would be spent how? Bashing a rich liberal billionaire for being … rich.

That’s Splinter and their own Katie McDonough, who was exasperated that “Jeff Bezos is Obscene.” Bezos, who owns Amazon (dorkily pictured here), The Washington Post and probably a few small nations, is the now the richest person ever at $106 billion.

Compared to that, the owner of Splinter only is worth $3.3 … billion. Horrors. Our billionaire has less money than their billionaire. “Good morning to everyone except Jeff Bezos, who should be ashamed of himself,” wrote the envious McDonough.

It’s bizarre that Saban’s greedy staff embraces an “eat-the-rich” mentality working for a billionaire. This is the second time in as many months that the demented alt-lefites of Saban’s empire attacked other rich people.

Here’s would-be Antifa whackjob Hamilton Nolan in December, just before Christmas; “Sticking up a billionaire on the street for $100 is not going to do it. But one can imagine other ways that angry Americans might express their dissatisfaction with our current division of wealth: A large-scale online attack against the holdings of the very rich; yachts sunk in harbors; unoccupied vacation homes in the Hamptons mysteriously burned to the ground. Sotheby’s auctions swarmed by vandals, Art Basel attacked by spraypaint-wielding mobs, protests on the doorsteps of right-wing think tanks, venomous words directed at millionaires as they dine in fancy restaurants. People have a right to life and safety, but property does not.”

Money isn’t the root of all evil. It’s the love of money that’s problem.

It has actually been a news story on the morning shows this week, Wahlberg has to re-shoot scenes for the film deciding to eliminate Spacey for allegations (nothing has been proven still). So Wahlberg is a smart dude and demands to be paid. Michelle Williams is represented by the same agency (but both of them are independent contractors) and tells the producers she will re-shoot the scenes for free or forgo her salary (i guess because she was making a stand against all those evil menz, even tho spacey was alleged to have hooked up with a male) and gets very little to re-shoot the scenes even tho she made the deal herself and per the MSM this is a perfect example of pay inequity

That is the totally effing stupidity this country has gotten to

Did the cameraman and makeup person get paid their normal wage for the reshoot? Of course.

There’s no extortion here. Wahlberg willingly donated it, as is his right. I would have supported him had he chose to keep it as well, but he may have done this for his long term best interests.

Yep. The wrath of the Hollywood industry right now will be unforgiving to men.

LOL...willingly...right. Had nothing to do with being attacked by the man hating left and their latest hashtag mafia. Bet you believe Texaco donated all that money to Jesse willingly too.

The same mentality that wants to force bakers at gun point to #bakethecakeordie!, now has Hollywood dropping all pretensions of not working for the collective #donateorsuffercareersuicide!

Hashtag commie mafia

#Extortion

Can't say I feel bad for him
