Sean Penn

FLIPS OUT on Fan

'I'll Make You Eat Your Cell Phone!'

Sean Penn went nuclear on a fan in a fancy San Francisco hotel last night -- threatening to jack the guy up after Sean caught him trying to sneak a cell phone pic ... and TMZ has the explosive footage.

Penn was at the Lobby Bar at the St. Regis Hotel in the Financial District ... when he saw a flash go off from another patron's cell phone and realized the guy was trying to take a photo.

A witness at the bar tells TMZ ... Penn bolted after the guy (who wasn't a paparazzo) ... and screamed at him, "Do we look like f**king zoo animals?"

Penn -- who was in town to speak at a sales conference -- also grabbed the man's phone and slammed it to the ground.

That's when our video begins ... and you can hear Penn yelling, "I'll make you eat the phone ... get the f**k out of here!!"

Moments later, a clearly irritated Penn complained to hotel management -- and can be heard saying, "You should do something about that."

We're told hotel management approached the fan and asked him if he wanted to call the police -- but the man declined and then left the bar. 

FYI -- we're also told the man had attended the sales conference where Sean was speaking and was wearing his name tag at the time of the bar confrontation.

We reached out to the St. Regis -- but they have no comment.

I have always thought this guy suffers from some kind of mental disorder caused by bad drugs. He is not right.

I have met this clown years ago downtown Manhattan when he was filming State of Grace. He did take the time to shake my son's and my hand. He is a very good actor,that can not be denied. Then seveal years later,My buddy and me were at the Tribeca Bar & Grill,in which him,Denaro,Chris Walkens,and I believe Bariznokoff own.,sean was walking around the place liked he owned it...LOL I'm sadden by the fact he and other's like him are taken aback by people wanting to at the very least get a photo of them. They should be please that people even recognize them at all,for when that time comes when no-one does ,they would wish that the public would come back to them.

According to many of the DB-posters here...the ones siding with the offending bar patron? Sean Penn has no reasonable expectation of privacy when in public. We've been saying it all along the restaurants and bars have more responsibility here. They SHOULD do something.

If it wasnt for teh fact that Madonna forgave this asshoe for what he did to her he would be in prison, He kidnapped her, tied her up, beat her and raped her in her own home because she wanted out of the marriage. She could have sent him up for along long time. He has always been insane and a screamer,. He lost his marriage of so manay years because of hs chasing women, treating her horribley and teachng his kids about racism and hate. Typical lib who thinks his crp doesn;t stink and he needs to be locked up for good.

UGH!!! What is the matter with all of these ":celebrities" if no one recognizes you...they dont see your movies...attend your appearances...books...sports...make up your mind. You wanted to be FAMOUS. Well, the average joe obviously was more dignified that the celebrity.

OK    

Funny thing is when he first started out he would beg to have his picture taken. Careful what you wish for.
