In a bizarre rant to CNN, Penn compared not getting vaccinated to "pointing a gun at people," calling this ironic for people who support the Second Amendment. Penn believes that "everyone should get vaccinated," including moviegoers who for whatever reason want to watch his films.
Penn has also decided that he will not go back to work on his upcoming Watergate drama "Gaslit" with Julia Roberts unless everyone on set has been fully vaccinated. Penn says he made this decision because he does not "want to feel complicit" in potentially having crew members get infected while shooting.
"I'll go back when I can be assured that 100 percent of the crew has gotten vaccinated," Penn confirmed to Pagesix.
Because of Penn's strong belief in the jabs, filming for "Gaslit" is being delayed. Penn, however, has chosen to blame "weak leadership in some of the unions that are too concerned about some of the fringe constituencies within and not concerned enough about common sense."
In other words, Penn believes that freedom of choice is not to be respected when it comes to Donald "father of the vaccine" Trump's "Operation Warp Speed" injections. The entertainment industry needs to just mandate them for everyone, Penn says, so that he can feel comfortable while on set.
As for viewers of "Flag Day," which is now in theaters, Penn is demanding that only people who rolled up their sleeves as Tony Fauci told them too should be allowed to see it.
"Eventually it will stream, and that's a better time for the unvaccinated to see it," Penn stated, urging unvaccinated audiences to stay home and not watch his new film.
Penn admits that such statements are likely to ostracize some of his fans, assuming he still has any, but that his controversial stance is correct. Get jabbed or do not watch Penn, is his request.
Penn's attempt to "cancel" moviegoers who refuse the jab is a direct contradiction to statements he made back in July during an appearance on Conan O'Brien's late-night talk show.
Penn and O'Brien discussed what they described as "Soviet-style" cancel culture and the "ludicrous" nature of it. Now, less than two months later, Penn is engaging in cancel culture himself by trying to block the unvaccinated from going to the movies without permanently altering their DNA with experimental gene therapy injections.
"No problem, I wouldn't watch a Sean Penn movie if he held a gun to my head," joked one commenter at Newspunch in response to the news.
"I really have not watched a Hollywood movie in years," wrote another. "Since this character has said this, makes me even more comfortable that I have decided to never get a vaccine. He is a joke."
Others pointed out that Penn's fears about the Chinese Virus spreading if unvaccinated people are present in a theater or on set are ludicrous if the vaccine truly works as claims. Would not everyone who got injected be protected against an "outbreak" regardless of the vaccination status of others?
"How is this sort of divisiveness and hatred tolerated in the so-called 'progressive' perspective?" another commenter wrote, pointing out the irony of Penn's hypocritical position. "They can no longer conceal their true nature."
