Brits to Sean Penn

You’re A Moron ...

And Your Movies SUCK!!!

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."

Hey Brits, americans aren't exactly bustin' their assets to see your movies. Personally, you have my favorite actors, along with those from Australia; but if you can routinely select your own actors for your movie awards over ours then we know where you're comin' from in regards to Sean Penn.
Sean made some very good movies in his heyday.
Sure he raised a lot of heck in his younger days, but I wouldn't be the one cast the first stone.
AND, he was right there in New Orleans helping the victims of the hurricane, Katrina. Didn''t notify the paparazzi before hand.
Now, he's helping rebuild Haiti; giving its citizens critical hope.
And that to me, is an example of American good citizenship.
What he says publicly, I've heard many an educated american say in private.
It's so easy to manipulate americans. All you have to do is wave the flag, and tell them what they want to hear.
Sean Penn knows that!

They are both right lol Colonial Britain should leave the islands & Penn should start choosing blockbuster instead of sleep-inducing cannot-finish movies lol

I always thought of Penn as Mr. Madonna, and an actor. I have to admit he did wonders in Haiti. He personally went in there, organized things when no one else would or could, and made sure money went where it should go to save lives. He has earned his right to his opinions on a global scale, whether we agree with him or not, but the idea that the best they could insult him with is about his acting, makes me want to go investigate what is going on with the Falklands.

His movies rocks and the British Army veteran is hilarious for her comment, what do you spect if the guy fought in the Argentine-British war, anyway the people said that falkland people want to be british, but must be a joke because they are british, they took that land in a british ship.
In my opinion that island is close to argentine so I guest must to be of they but who I am to say something.

And (no offense intended here) America has never once in it's history (not even recently) invaded a country for it's natural resources or anything (cough) oil (cough)? The Falkland islanders themselves have voted on numerous occasions that they wish to be governed by the UK so keep your nose out Penn and try raising the bar on your woeful acting performances. Is it any wonder Madonna ditched you? Besides your dire acting performances I bet you're useless in the bedroom dept too.
