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.

No, you can't compare him to zoo animals. They are more well behaved. I rather consider him a maggot.

As a matter of fact, not only do you "celebrity" geeks look like zoo animals, you act like them as well. If you don't want your picture taken, seems to me like you're in the wrong business. Stay home out of sight.

Hey Mr. Penn, try acting like a gentleman, try behaving like Jennifer Lawrence, try behaving like a human being and not some pompous ass and I'm planning on avoiding ANY, read ANY movie you make in the future. A**

Just another celebrity jerk like Alex Baldwin. I would have called the police and filed assault and battery charges against Mr. Penn. I would also sue him. Grow up.

Lock him in a room with Chris Brown & let them work on their problems together.

Just another celebrity jerk like Alec Baldwin. I would have called the police and filed a complaint against him and sued him. What gives you the right to attack someone Mr. Penn for merely taking your picture. What an animal.

What happened to him? Penn was so funny and cool, he has become bitter and takes himself way too seriously. Doesn't look like a happy soul.

Yeah Sean, You always look like you belong in a cage.

Why is it that every time we see his picture he looks like he is smelling his own stink? He is a sad excuse for a human person. Hollywood Grunge!!

So that dopey guy Penn went ballistic again? No biggie, he was just in withdrawal from the drug of the day. No news here.
