Lee Daniels Apologizes to Sean Penn

Last year actor Sean Penn slapped director Lee Daniels with a $10 million defamation of character lawsuit after Lee compared Sean's domestic violence history to actor Terrence Howard's [click here if you missed that].

The problem is Sean Penn doesn't have a domestic violence history...

Yesterday Lee Daniels issued a public apology to Sean Penn as part of the settlement in their dispute.

Daniels also donated an undisclosed amount to Sean Penn's Haitian Relief charity.

Read Lee Daniels full apology below
"I am so sorry that I have hurt you, Sean, and I apologize and retract my reckless statements about you. How thoughtless of me. You are someone I consider a friend, a brilliant actor and true Hollywood legend and humanitarian."
"I too have been the subject of false attacks by others, like those made here. My most important role is as a father, and it is important to me that my children learn that it is wrong to reference gossip as fact, as I did here. That can be very damaging and hurtful."
"Domestic violence is a very serious issue. My comments were cavalier; it was not my intention to diminish the severity of the issue, but rather to express a view regarding the disparate treatment of men of color in our national conversation. I apologize again for the distress that this has caused you and your family."
My very best, Lee Daniels.
In their joint statement Sean Pen replied,
"I accept Lee's heartfelt apology and appreciate the sincerity with which it was delivered. I also accept and appreciate his generous donation to J/P HRO, which will have a transformative effect on the lives of those we serve in Haiti."

Sean made Lee his bitch with that statement. The fact that Sean statement mention that Lee made a donation to his charity meant he wanted to let everyone know that how he really feels about Lee. FUCK YOU PAY ME...Or my charity.!!! I know Monique fat ass is somewhere eating out of a big container of Blue Bell ice cream getting kicks and giggles out of this. Lee you can't win when you play dirty.

Stop dealing with white people, and learn to stick together!

Deal with them the way Arabs, Chinese, and Mexicans deal with whatever business or work related item you need to do with them, but THAT"S IT!....don't hang out with them, don't tell them your business, don't patronize their stores or whatever it is they sell......just leave them devils alone!

Well, all I can say is Lee Daniels tried it with Sean Penn and got his ass, pun intended, handed to him.

Believe it or not, Sean comes from Hollywood royalty, his family is Arthur and Irving Penn noted photographers who has been in the industry for yeeaarrssss!!! His reach is far. Always has been, always will.

Everyone knows like the earlier poster said he been beating Madonna's ass th whole time in that marriage and lets not forget Robin Wright, who practically gave up her career for that jerk.
