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.

Anyone that sides with the offensive bar-patron is unemployed, under-educated born-of mutants.

Couldn't agree with him more - it's a no-brainer, common courtesy - Sean shoulda jump-started the DB.

You don't have any solutions, dude. Not for Sean Penn, not for anyone here, not even for yourself. You think it's your God-given right to harass people you shmuck.

I don't get it. What's a Commie like Sean Penn doing speaking at a SALES conference? I thought he didn't like capitalism or something.

If you're in a public place you have zero expectation of privacy, famous or not. Deport this spoiled Hollywood Red Diaper prince to his beloved Venezuela.

If it weren't for people interested in taking Sean Penn's picture, no one would have ever heard of him. Now that he has a name, he has to be a real creep about what made him famous in the first place.

I understand you're all-coiled-up-today and there's no food in the fridge. But since when have YOU worked a real job?

Thanks for the rule interpretation. Until you spoke up I was unsure what to say or do. Because of you, though, I now understand. Get it.

What's with these freaks? They want to be famous movie stars but they don't want anybody looking at them or taking their pictures?

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