About time! It's not like he is down there all the time rebuilding towns, feeding starving children and all-around helping the country's morale or anything.
The official announcement was made this weekend that Sean Penn has been given the title of ambassador to Haiti. On Saturday, he was presented the honor by the Haitian foreign minister Laurent Lamothe at the Cinema for Peace benefit at the Montage Hotel in Beverly Hills. Sean graciously accepted the honor, pointing out that it will be nice to “change being called hey you (bleep), to hey Mr. Ambassador!”
Ah! Such a sense of humor this guy has!
Congrats on the honor, Sean. Oh, we mean … Mr. Ambassador!
