Skip to comments.Sean Penn causes trouble at LAX, gets a patdown from security

After getting into an argument with a female airport employee and balking at going through the security line, Sean Penn was taken aside at TSA officials today before jetting out of LAX. While being patted down, the Oscar-winning actor was on his best behavior, and after he made his way through the line just like everyone else, we're hoping he continued to mind his manners.

“Do you know who I am?”
He would have preferred Hugo Chavez pat him down
**Do you know who I am?**
Yes I do... that’s why you’re getting patted down....TWICE!!
I don’t agree with this mans politics, but I saw the work he did in Haiti; the compassion he had for those people, and the amount of money he poured into his humanitarian organization speaks a lot about his inner soul and character.
Damn it,he could have made it interesting.
The one thing you can say about the TSA is they don’t make much of any exceptions.
See now for me, his sitting down with Saddam Hussein for a little chit chat was my insight to his swellness, or lack thereof, newbus.
getting a beatdown from security would have been more effective
Typical Liberals. They want special treatment to the rest of us
Mebbe he was briefly flashing back to his late 1980’s persona.
“No I don’t sir, but if you have some ID on you perhaps we can solve your little problerm.”
Penn would be the first one to squawk if the TSA profiled people.
“The one thing you can say about the TSA is they dont make much of any exceptions.”
I watched them make multiple exceptions late one evening. The terminal was pretty much closed, except for the flight that I was waiting for. The TSA guys that were there were only making sure no one got to the gates. Sure enough, a cleaning crew had no problem going right past them with their carts and everything. No screening at all. It reminded me of the early days, when flight crews got a free pass (until the disgruntled worker in California took out a plane with a carry-on gun).
Spicoli.......meet Mr Hand!
I hope he brought enough pizza for everybody.
He has done some good work- but the damage he causes but spouting liberal horse$hit causes a lot more damage
It would be great to sit down with one of the flaming liberals who actually seem to have a good heart and see if you can talk some sense into them
I was a lib when I was yunger- so I know what it’s like- you feel so good about wanting to ‘help’ people.
Now I want to ‘help’ them the way I help my children (who I love more than my own life itself) - I teach them to stand on their own.
I worked for a government agency once.. it was the most eye-opening experience
No exceptions, of course, unless you are a young, Arab male. I went through TSA security last week in Charlotte as I was making my way home from Brazil. I watched in amazement as an elderly white woman in a wheel chair and a 4 year old, blue eyed, blond boy who was traveling with her were pulled aside and searched. Meanwhile, 3 males of obvious middle eastern descent (speaking Arabic in line) passed right through unquestioned. Happens almost every time I go through TSA (illusion of) security......
It wasn't his money
Typical liberal spending other peoples money.
