(Newser) – Don’t get on Sean Penn’s bad side, or he might wish a very unpleasant death upon you. The actor responded to detractors who say his relief work in Haiti is just his attempt to take attention away from his divorce with the usual grace, the New York Daily News reports. “Do I hope that those people die screaming of rectal cancer? Yeah,” says Penn in an interview airing on CBS this weekend. “But I'm not going to spend a lot of energy on it.”
