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.

So, who is the bigger a55hole....Penn, Balwin, Kanye, or Brown? People need to stop supporting these clowns. Quit going to their movies, stop watching their shows, quit buying their albums. If they want to act like this then hit them where it counts, the wallet.

Penn has always been a nut case and apparently is able to buy his way out of his crazy behavior. He really needs to get head handed to him. The man taking the picture should have called the police .

I wish he had done that to me. He thinks he's a tough guy, he's a punk ass piece of crap. Loved him though in "Fast Times." Oh well...

If no one took pics of celebrities, they would be the first ones to wonder why no one is interested. If it wasnt for the fans they wouldnt be who they are. also, if they werent actors, most of them wouldnt have a job.

Sean and that idiot Brown should be set in a ring and let them beat the stuffing out of one another. Death match.
