Sean Penn Refutes Wyclef Jean's False Accusations

Sean Penn Refutes Wyclef Jean's False Accusations

When Wyclef Jean announced his intentions to run for the Haitian presidency, Sean Penn was “suspicious.”

At a concert on Friday, Wyclef slammed Sean during one of his songs, accusing him of “sniffing cocaine.”

The accusations are not true, according to his rep.

Mr. Jean is clearly unfamiliar with the physical demands put upon volunteers in Haiti,” Sean‘s rep tells JustJared.com. “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.”

Shouldn’t we be worrying about Haiti’s problems rather than picking a fight?
