No one is immune to douche-baggery. As soon as you believe you are, you’re building yourself up for an even harder fall. Hollywood–however you want to classify that–and the world of entertainment are full of people who fit that description. And the list is always changing. Some people find the light, and gravitate toward gravitas, while others stick out their chest and take on a pungent odor of vinegar and water. As it stands, a few people guilty of being serious jerks are sliding off the top of the mountain–we’re hopeful for them–but as it stands, here are nine who need to be addressed.
9. Sean Penn
Sean Penn was not on this list a week ago. In fact, one might argue that he was outside the Top 50. Sean is like a cat who cannot deny his curiosity. He goes where he wants to be needed, and he shakes the hands of some people without realizing his mission may not always be one of diplomacy. Case in point, Sean’s recent meeting with drug lord El Chapo. Sean is now suggesting his Rolling Stone article “failed,” because people have failed to see the purpose of it. His desire to engage a drug kingpin in a conversation about the war on drugs. An article that he was going to allow El Chapo to have final say before publication. And all the while, Sean was well aware the El Chapo was a fugitive, and literally thousands of people have died at his directive. Congrats Sean, you’re back on our list!
