Donnie Wahlberg Is Winning the Boy Band Turf War

His response to Aaron Carter’s ludicrous story is perfect.

New Kid on the Block Donnie Wahlberg had a perfect response to former kid pop star Aaron Carter’s ridiculous story about getting beat up in Boston for stepping on New Kids turf.

Before we get to it, let’s recap: Carter posted a photo of his roughed up face to Instagram along with a definitely-n0t-made-up story about being in Boston to give a concert. Carter says several guys drove up to him in a gold Chevy Malibu and told him he was on “New Kids” territory. These men then reportedly jumped Carter, but don’t worry, he won the fight.

If you’re wondering whether this story might have some “truthiness” to it, consider that Carter’s older brother, Backstreet Boy Nick Carter said of it, “It’s just a little strange the way the whole situation went down. But you know, it’s my brother. He’s young. I was young one time.” (We speak subtext, and the translation there is, “hahaha nope, absolutely not.”)

Indeed this story amused quite a few people, which brings us to Wahlberg, who was among them. He tweeted today:

The New Kids are actually performing in Cincinnati with fellow boy band 98 Degrees tonight. And with that, we’re done here. Aaron Carter, you have lost the boy band turf war.

    OH Wahlberg…’re too cute for words and I love this jab! Even Nick his own brother in not so many words calls BS on the story!

    All I can say is, Love Eternal! Kudos Donnie for being a class act when calling out this clown. He should respect the relationship between NKOTB and Nick/BSB. Side note, nobody even liked his cover of PDGG and that alone was worth a beat down!
