Wannabe Haitian president Wyclef Jean accused Sean Penn of sniffing cocaine, and Penn has shot back. Penn previously criticized Jean's potential candidacy and said he had been a 'non-presence.'
During a concert over weekend, Jean sang his song 'President,' changing some lyrics to be about Penn, including, 'I got a message for Sean Penn: Maybe he ain't see me in Haiti because he was too busy sniffing cocaine.'
Scroll to watch.
"Mr. Jean is clearly unfamiliar with the physical demands put upon volunteers in Haiti. As aid workers there, the notion of depleting the body's immune system thru the use of illicit drugs is ludicrous. More specifically, J/P Haitian Relief Organization (a.k.a. JPHRO) has a ZERO tolerance policy for any and all illegal drugs. As the leader of this organization, Sean Penn has not only set this policy, but adheres to it. That Mr. Jean would make such a false accusation is reckless and saddening, but not surprising.
