Well, this is surprising!
The man who was brutally attacked by Mark Wahlberg 26 years ago just wants bygones to be bygones!
Back in 1988, the now 43-year-old Transformers star was convicted and put in jail for 45 days for attacking and using racial slurs on two Vietnamese men.
During that attack, the media had reported that Marky Mark left one of the men blind in his left eye, but fast forward many years later, and the world finds out that didn't actually happen!

The Daily Mail was able to get in contact with the assault victim, Johnny Trinh, and talked to him about that fateful day.
While the world and Mark believed Johnny became blind in his left eye after the attack, the 59-year-old revealed he was already blind in one eye after fighting against the communists in the Vietnam War!
And — get this — instead of holding a grudge against the actor for the past attack, the man supports Mark's request to be pardoned for the 1988 assault.
"I was not blinded by Mark Wahlberg. 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."
What an admirable person.
This might be just what Mark needs to be pardoned of the past assault!
