Brits to Sean Penn

You’re A Moron ...

And Your Movies SUCK!!!

2/15/2012 3:00 PM PST BY TMZ STAFF

Members of British Parliament are lining up to slam Sean Penn ... and his movies -- trashing him over recent comments he made concerning Britain’s stance over the Falkland Islands.
 
In case you don't know: Britain and Argentina have both claimed sovereignty over the Falklands since the early 19th-Century ... and went to war with each other over the territory in 1982.
 
Penn called the Brits' continuing claims over the Falklands "colonialist, ludicrous and archaic" -- and got their dander up even further by criticizing their recent decision to deploy Prince William there.
 
One member of the British Parliament called Penn’s views "nonsense." Patrick Mercer, a famed British Army veteran, also ripped Penn – calling his views "moronic.”

Mercer added, Penn "seems to know nothing about the situation" -- and "A good number of his movies have been turkeys, so I suppose we shouldn’t expect much better coming out of his mouth."

Sean Penn is the first name that comes to mind when I hear the words douche-bag. The Brits have it right.

Thank God for the Brits. Plain-speaking and righteously direct, in this case. Too many politically correct softies in the US nowadays. How endorsing a dictator and chauvinist such as Hugo Chavez became 'politically correct' I do not know, at any rate it seems to be the case. Sad sad sad. Go UK!

How do F-ing idiots like Sean Penn get anything in live except a swift kick in the as$. I think god does this to remind us of how stupid some people are and to help set an example for the rest of us. I think he's saying, don't be like this taint right here!

senn penn makes me sick. he is just a blow hard, trying to get people to think he is intelligent and a humanitarian. but he is so for off and uninformed, he comes off as dumb. he asked the judge in divorce from wife to not give her any money, doesnt sound very generous, when its his money.

The Brits are not telling us anything we don't already know about Sean Penn, so I don't know why this is even news. Also nobody here gives a crap about the Falklands, British Army Veteran Mercer, Prince(boring, balding)William or Sean Penn. It must be a really slow news day for TMZ to post this garbage.

can't believe all u anglo droids hating on Penn, who is an Oscar winner and starred in numerous critically acclaimed films by the way. Sean is the ULTIMATE American, using his freedom of speech to criticize Anglo (including its filthy spawn Yanks) imperial actions overseas, mutilating, murdering, and committing genocide on indigenous populations, including women and children. With his voice, many listen, and eventually reach the decision makers of America to think twice before committing more atrocities, which then will LEAD TO THE PREVENTION OF TERRORIST ATTACKS ON AMERICAN CITIZENS, yes including you and me, u mindless sheep,....read a book once in a while.

Sean Penn is a moron everything he does sucks. He should realize nobody cares what a moron like him thinks. I wish he would just leave the country forever nobody would miss him.

Sear TMZ, stay the **** away from "stories" that are complicated, involve critical thinking or where the truth flies in the face of conventional wisdom. Please stick to crotch shots and pro-Linday/Kardashian PR. Thank you.

Don't feel bad UK we have to live with him. He has been F*%#ed in the head for years he thinks Cuba is the best place on earth and the world should model its self ofter them. If he thinks the USA is so bad HE DOES NOT HAVE TO STAY HERE. From the sound of it the UK does not want him either.

To our British Friends,

96% of Americans could care less about Mr.Penn. His thoughts and views are Crazy. And we agree with you, his movies suck bad.

I dont care about him!!! But brits are carrying armament there and it is understandable that Argentines feel threatened. And this is a great provocation considering the requests for peaceful negotiation by the Argentine government...
