"And, and there, yet there’s another problem. You have what I call the “Get the ‘N’-word out of the White House party,” the Tea Party, this kind of sensibility, which is much more of a distraction.... If you ask a representative of the Tea Party, “okay, Social Security, socialist, get rid of it,” they're going to get very confused. What the, what they're -- at the end of the day, there's a big bubble coming out of their heads saying, you know, “can we just lynch him?” Sean Penn, October 2011.
Hollywood values from Hollywood Hypocrites, who lecture us about bigotry, tolerance and diversity, but they and their family don't seem to follow.
Such is the case with gun-toting, spousal and paparatzzi abusing Sean Penn, former resident of the wealthy, Marin County hamlet of Ross, California and his son Hopper, who appears to have learned his dad's finer skills at attacking photographers. But where did he learn anti-gay and racial slurs? (TMZ.com )
19-year-old Hopper Penn was following his dad into a medical building when he got into the altercation with an African-American photographer (not TMZ's).
The nuclear exchange was all caught on tape ... Hopper gets up in the photog's face, pushing him, then says, "F*** you ... you're a f***ing f***ot ... shut up you f***ing n***er."
Cops happened to be nearby at the time and heard the commotion. Law enforcement sources tell us, officers asked what happened ... but the photog said it was just a verbal argument, and he didn't want to press charges.
Hopper says he "regrets his choice of words" and "felt threatened...but that does not condone my actions." Yeah, right. Are you only saing that because you were caught on camera?
