Hip hop singer and musician Wyclef Jean Hollywood star Sean Penn's war of words continues. He got back on Sean Penn for criticizing his plans to contest for Haiti's presidency. He chose one of his weekend concerts at New York to settle score.
Penn criticized Jean's presidential ambition by saying he hadn't seen or heard anything of him in the last six months during his relief work in the quake-hit Haiti.
The singer presented his 2004 song President by singing, I got a message for Sean Penn: Maybe he ain't see me in Haiti because he was too busy sniffing cocaine.
Penn's spokesman has refuted the charges saying that Jean was clearly unaware of the physical demands of volunteerism required during relief work. It is ridiculous to even think that a person would play with his immune system by using illicit drugs.
The spokesman also added that J/P Haitian Relief Organization has a zero tolerance policy for illegal drugs and as the leader of the team Penn practices what he preaches.
It may be noted that Jean's presidential ambition got rejected in November by the Haitian government because he didn't meet the residency requirements.
