Sean Penn recently attended the Washington Hebrew Congregation, which is a meeting, to do his usual humanitarium work for Haiti. At the meeting, the news media was allowed to be in there to ask a question for each actor that attended the meeting. A political website named, Yeas and Nays which is owned by two young women, I believe, were in there. One of them, went up to Sean Penn and asked him his thoughts, on his “die of rectal cancer to critics”. Sean doesn’t really say much but sat there with a smile on his face. It wasn’t a friendly smile, it definitely was an evil smile. I couldn’t really make out what he said, ’cause he talked quietly and quickly, but I did hear him say, “you are investing in a culture that I’m not interested in, so why don’t you please go away”, with a smile on his face that whole time he said it.
I know Sean Penn is getting a negative backlash for this. People think Sean Penn is an asshole, but I don’t see it. How is he being an asshole? I personally think he’s doing the right thing telling the critics and news media to piss off. He has always been known to get into fights with paps and the news media, all the time. Why? Get the clue, he hates the entertainment pop culture just like all of us.
He may have reacted in a harsh and mean tone, yes, but if he was polite, they wouldn’t leave him alone. The woman that asked him those questions was a bitch. So she deserved the smackdown by Penn. I think we can understand that Sean Penn doesn’t care about fame at all. He’s into this for making movies and being a political activist.
Sean doesn’t give interviews on TV much, the only time he will do an interview if it’s something serious like Haiti or something or if he’s out there, promoting a film. What Sean is doing for Haiti is great. I respect him for that. Why hate on Sean Penn? He saved people’s lives during Hurricane Katrina, helped defended gay rights for all, etc. What’s the problem? Sean saves people’s lives during natural disasters while other people don’t do anything. People hating on the guy proves that the guy is a world hero.
