Sean Penn is getting a lot of flack for his debut novel, Bob Honey Who Just Do Stuff.
There are those offended by his Donald Trump pastiche, his female characters and the violence done to them, his poem bashing the #MeToo movement.
Oh, and then there are the critics. Lord, the critics have not been nice.
So when Conan O’Brien asked him about those who took umbrage with his protagonist murdering the elderly or other aspects of the novel, Sean addressed all the haters, saying:
“I’m 57, my pool’s heated, you can say anything you like.”
Well… At least that sentence was short and pointed.
Ch-ch-check out his full defense (above)!
