Ozzie Guillen on Sean Penn: What a Loser!

by at . Comments

Ozzie Guillen, the manager of the Chicago White Sox, is none too pleased with Sean Penn and his support for Hugo Chavez. Yes, this is a real story.

The Oscar-winner's controversial and public defense of the Venezuelan president on Real Time With Bill Maher apparently struck a chord with Guillen.

A Venezuelan-American former baseball player who, like Penn, is never afraid to speak his mind, wasn't pleased, tweeting that Penn is "very crazy."

He later challenged Penn, on Twitter, to move to the South American country "to see how long you last clown." But Ozzie didn't even stop there.

In an interview on In Depth With Graham Bensinger, Guillen said of the actor, "He is a loser...When you say our country is in good shape when it's not."

"Who are you to talk about Venezuela?"

A fair point. One Guillen suggested he make in person, inviting Penn to visit Venezuela with him: "I invite him to go to Venezuela with me, and I'll say, 'This is Venezuela, bro. Here it is, this Venezuela, not the one they show you.'"

Your move, Sean.

I guess Sean was running low on cash and went down to visit his drug dealer Chavez to get a cash advance. FU Sean Penn!
