Sean Penn Drops F-bombs for Haiti

At a glitzy fundraiser for Haiti in France during this year's Cannes Film Festival, actor and Haitian ambassador-at-large Sean Penn went on an expletive-laced rant that instead of offending his audience alotted nearly $2 million to support Haitian earthquake recovery efforts.


"F--k 'em if people say you're just writing a check, but you're making a change," he told the crowd. He also said Haiti should be helped because it is just an hour away from "the richest f---ing country in the world."
