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.

These stupid moronic egomaniac celebrities cry like bit%ches when people take their pics, videos but they sure don't cry all the way to the bank or when they are buying houses, cars and getting all the pampered treatment..... TO all celebs. STFU and deal with it. Thats your job, you get $$$ for it while the rest of the world has to go to ACTUAL work 9-5 and make pennies compared to you.

The day will come when a celebrity (Penn, Baldwin, Kanye, whoever) is going to flip out at the wrong photographer. And the picture taker is gonna drop their camera and give one of these clowns a serious beat down. I look forward to it!

He gets paid to speak but feels like a zoo animal? Doesn't he get it, no one cares what Sean Penn has to say. He is nothing more than a zoo animal, people pay to look at him.

What kind of creep follows him while he is trying to eat dinner and films him with a camera while he is eating? Well played Sean.
