Wright Penn Slams Sean Criticism - Comments and Message Board

It looks as if Robin has as big an anger management problem as Sean! It's clear to everyone that this was nothing but a publicity stunt--a photo op for Sean to try to look like a hero, and it backfired. The photo of him stomping around with a shotgun in New Orleans was even scarier!

I can't believe this canard is still circulating after a credible eyewitness refuted it.Here's the correction:The Mystic River star was ridiculed when an Australian journalist reported he had forgotten to fix a hole in his boat, which supposedly started sinking as he scooped water out of it with a plastic cup. But presidential historian and eyewitness Douglas Brinkley insists the claims are completely false, as big-hearted Penn valiantly saved up to 40 survivors. Brinkley, who is chronicling the city's recovery from the disaster, tells the New York Daily News, "There was never a leak. The boat was overloaded with people. It got some water in it, as boats usually do. "I witnessed him rescuing up to 40 people. He was up to his waist in toxic muck. "I'm not going to comment on Sean's trips to Iraq or Iran, but in this case, he was an American hero."

But he forgot to plug a hole in his boat AND he did not think about leaving his entourage ashore to make room for victims. Please. Mr. Penn has been in the celebrity light since he was a kid. Not only is he out of touch with those he wishes to save, he does not have formal training to save them...if he really cared, he could contract a team of experienced people to carry this out for him with his Hollywood money.
