Sean Penn Intends To Stay In Haiti!

We cannot commend him enough for his tireless commitment to aiding so many people in need!

Ever since last year's devastating earthquake in Haiti, celebrities such as director Paul Haggis, Maria Bello, Olivia Wilde, and countless others have completely immersed themselves firsthand in the struggle to rebuild the broken country.

Sean Penn, however, seems to have gone above and beyond, and a year later, admits that he has no plans to leave the country.

In fact, when he's not working, he will live in Haiti permanently - as the camp manager for 55,000 displaced residents!

He explains:

“There’s a great thing Paul Newman said about his long marriage. ‘As it turns out, we still love each other.’ That’s how I feel: ‘As it turns out, I’m still here.’ The amount we’re getting done, versus what they’re doing — which is nothing. Quite honestly, if you want something done, do it yourself. They said, ‘You can stay if you’re effective. If you stop being effective, we kick you out.’ I started paying for stuff, and that was when I thought, ‘OK, I better figure this out, because at this burn rate I’ll last about a week and a half.’ I didn’t have commitments, except for way in the future; I had nothing pressing. I got practical issues, like everybody. I had two federal cases against me at the time, and one criminal one. I had just got taken for one half of everything I had in the divorce, so it’s not like I don’t have to work. A much more profound change in life for me personally was not being able to raise my son in a whole family through high school. When I first came to Haiti, the decision was to go for two weeks. Let’s face it, I’m a person that feels pretty alienated from the rest of the world and never felt understood by anyone. There’s no end point. This is where I’ll be when I’m not working, for the rest of my life.

Wow.

Say what you want about him, but we're completely blown away by his compassion and resilience!

It's one thing to cut a check - which is a wonderful gesture - but to immerse yourself in such hardship, and give up your life to help those in dire need?! Heroic!

Keep up the good work, bb! You have truly gone above and beyond in your efforts, and we know that there are thousands of lives grateful for what you've done!

Oh No! Sean Penn's Haiti Settlement Torn Down By Storm!

Filed under: Sad SadSean Penn

So sad!

Following the devastating earthquake that shattered Haiti, Sean Penn put a lot of money and charity into creating a temporary settlement for those who were helping victims of the disaster. Unfortunately, his charity was spoiled as a storm over the weekend wrecked the entire place, destroying a hospital, pharmacy and many medical supplies. Sean and his team were forced to evacuate the camp and relocate to a club gymnasium in Port-au-Prince until the storm passed on Sunday. No injuries were reported.

Poor things! Hopefully, they'll be able to get everything back up and running soon. With Sean's dedication, we're sure it won't take them long.

Keep up the good fight, Sean!

Yeas & Nays Reporter Starts Shiz With Sean Penn!

Filed under: Icky Icky PooYouTubeSean Penn

Yeah, he can be a lot of crazy, but this bitch is OUT OF LINE!

Sean Penn, who has gotten a lot of press for announcing he hopes those who criticize his humanitarian work in Haiti "die screaming of rectal cancer," was being interviewed by the press at a Haiti benefit gala hosted by the Washington Hebrew Congregation when Yeas & Nays reporter Tara Palmeri thought it would be appropriate to ask the actor, "How have you seen your critics change since you mentioned that they should die of rectal cancer?"

What a clASS act!!

Yeah, he made a dick comment, but that is NOT the venue to spew that garbage question at him!!

You can watch the above clip to see how Penn responds.

Girlfriend then got OWNED by publicity coordiner C.J. Jordan, who removed her from the event and told her that if she wanted to keep her job, she would have to write a letter of apology to the Haitian ambassador!!

Ouch!!
