Poor Sean Penn has been having a tough time of it lately.
Then there’s all the criticism he’s been receiving for those untoward comments he made about journalists needing to be jailed for calling his good buddy, Venezuelan Dictator Hugo Chavez, a dictator.
Then just a few days ago, he had a dust up with a journalist over what he considered to be an inappropriate question. Her question concerned an earlier statement Penn had made that critics cynical about his do-good works as a celebrity should “die screaming of rectal cancer.” She was scolded by Penn and his publicist and escorted from the room.
Poor, poor Sean Penn. Was ever a man more misunderstood? Well, this is only a suggestion, but maybe Mr. Penn would be better off if he moved to Venezuela. There, he wouldn’t have to worry about anyone calling Mr. Chavez a dictator, and he wouldn’t ever have to worry about being bothered with pesky questions from journalists or having his picture taken ever again. And neither would we.
