Wyclef Jean Snaps Back at Sean Penn in Song

Wyclef Jean Snaps Back at Sean Penn in Song

Wyclef Jean kills Sean Penn softly with his song as he performs a re-make of his 2004 song, “President,” at Hot 97′s On the Reggae Tip Concert in New York City on Friday (September 3).

After Sean, 50, and former Fugees bandmate Pras, 37, criticized Wyclef‘s highly publicized bid and subsequent withdrawal from the Haitian presidential race, the 40-year-old Yéle Haiti Foundation founder had some choice words for the two of them.

Here are some of Wyclef‘s lyrics: “I got a message for Sean Penn/ Maybe he ain’t see me in Haiti because he was too busy sniffing cocaine/ I got a message for Praswell/ Even though you don’t want to support me/ I got love for you/Even though you only kicked 8 bars in the Fugees.”

Watch Wyclef‘s performance below!

    If he’s saying that in his songs, then he’s not fit to be a President of a country.

    Really mature Wyclef. You would never make it as President if you can’t take a few attacks on your character. Grow up.

    Marie Says:

    WOW, this is so childish. I will always respect Wyclef for his Fugees days, but if he can’t take the criticism at heart he is not fit to run a country (not that he’s ever been).

    gee, if that wasn’t proof that he is not fit to be president! what would he do if the president of bosnia or france attacked his policies, call them out in a song? this guy has NO qualifications to be president, can’t speak the languages of the country, bvarely can speak proper english despite living in the us for almost all his life, AND did not bother to be a resident of the country – a requirement- before running and now attacks people in this childish way. please make this egotistical, tax evading, foundation money stealing LOON go away! for the sake of the haiti people, wyclef, scram!

    And this man thinks he’s fit to be a president of a country. Talk about delusional and pathetic!

    @mary – yes, Penn is such a loser – are you special or something? The man busted his gut working in Haiti, it is well documented!

    DS Says:

    seriously?? Sean Penn CLEARLY said in the article that nothing he said was in ANY way personal, so to attack him in this way by saying that he’s “sniffing cocain” is just effin low.

    uh.. silly man, i just lost all my respect for you.

    OK SO HE EXPOSED THAT SEAN PENN IS COKE ADDICT -he obviously is not and will not be a president and as a civilian he has right to speak his mind and SEAN PENN-JENKINS HAITI FOUNDATION ‘s PERFORMANCE SHOULD BE QUESTIONED IF THERE IS COKE INVOLVED;BOTH WYCLEF AND PENN ARE OBVIOUSLY NOT NICE PEOPLE FOR PUBLICLY TALKING BAD ABOUT EACH OTHER!!!!SHAME ON PENN AND WYCLEF FOR LYING TO THOSE WHO SUFFER IN HAITI !!!!!

    ms bar jolie gaga Says:

    sean penn used his OWN money to go down to haiti as soon as the earthquake hit and has been there since. i don’t care if the man is sniffing lue everyday. he is helping. wyclef should think about that before outing a foreigner who is trying to help a country he has no personal connection too. also, wyclef was running for president, this is soooo low of him for a potential candidate. so crass and classless. then again, he is just a buffoon. ego is huge. the guy owes millions to the irs. he needs to shut up.

    Wyclef is mad because he can’t handle the truth, plain and simple. Wish he would go somewhere. Team Sean!

    CJ Says:

    Sorry but Sean attacked him first and not in a nice way..Sean does not know what Wyclef does or did in Haiti so Sean should have shut his pie hole…I like Sean but he thinks he is the only one that does good in Haiti..
