<Check out Sean Penn's son calling a photographer the n-word and also a f-ggot. That's the kind of thing you learn from home.>

I suspect that some months down the road when you make mention of this episode again you will be called a liar.

Of course in the mean time Penn and his family will probably put out a press release saying the son is bipolar or was suffering from some other condition that caused the tirade. This would mean that anything he said should not be held against him due to his illness. It would also mean if you brought up the subject at a later date that you were now the bigoted one for going after a poor defenseless ill person.

You can rest assured if the son of a conservative person had such an episode it would have been open season on the parent and probably been a story that was reported on the evening news for several weeks.

Sean Penn has always had anger management issues. It is not at all surprising that his son having both his DNA and environmental exposure to him would exibit similar personality traits. All is forgivin in the media as long as you have the correct political beliefs.
