    Penn says that Daniels accused him of domestic violence with a comparison to Terrence Howard.


    Sean Penn has filed a $10 million defamation lawsuit against Empire creator Lee Daniels. The complaint, filed Tuesday in New York Supreme Court, asserts that in Daniels' recent interview with The Hollywood Reporter, Penn was falsely accused of hitting women by being likened to Empire star Terrence Howard.

    "[Terrence] ain't done nothing different than Marlon Brando or Sean Penn, and all of a sudden he's some f—in' demon," Daniels
    told THR in reference to to Howard's recent legal troubles. "That's a sign of the time, of race, of where we are right now in America."

    Maybe he forgot about this one...

    In 1987, Penn served 33 days in prison after assaulting a photographer. In 1988, Penn was charged with felony domestic assault on his then-wife Madonna. And by assault I mean he HIT HER OVER THE HEAD WITH A BASEBALL BAT. He pled to a misdemeanor, so like Brown, Penn avoided jail time for his assault. But lest you think he learned his lesson after this incident, as recently as 2009 Penn was arrested for vandalism charges after assaulting yet another photographer. He’s been arrested six times.

    Not this time, he is right about Penn. Penn like most whites don't want their ugly past to be brought up. But whites don't have a problem with bringing up ours from way back when.

    Peace!

    LOL... I understand you feeling that way. I thought we had another Spike Lee caliber Director coming our way. But, the more this man talks the sillier he sounds. He publically admitted he was a "sellout". How will he outdo himself next? He's got a lot of income now. But, I'd bet he is low on assets, and we know how that plays out. Easy come, easy go.

    I bet he'll be flat broke in less than 15 years... any takers?

    Woooo Weeee! With all that happening why would he even fix his mouth to say any of that? He must be crazy as well as violent.

    Violence of any kind is wrong. Arguments occur, disagreements happen, but no one has the right to place hands on, or physically strike someone else.

    • What Is the Legal Definition of Domestic Violence?

    Domestic violence refers to any physical, emotional, mental, or verbal abuse carried out by a spouse, partner, family member, or date. Both men and women are capable of committing acts of domestic violence.
    ====================
    https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Domestic_violence

    Domestic violence
    (also domestic abuse, spousal abuse, intimate partner violence, battering or family violence) is a pattern of behavior which involves violence or other abuse by one person against another in a domestic setting, such as in marriage or cohabitation. Intimate partner violence is violence by a spouse or partner in an intimate relationship against the other spouse or partner. Domestic violence can take place in heterosexual or same-sex relationships, and sometimes also involves violence against the children in the family. Domestic violence can take a number of forms including physical, verbal, emotional, economic and sexual abuse, which can range from subtle, coercive forms to marital rape and to violent physical abuse that results in disfigurement or death.
    ======================
    • In response Penn launched a $10 million dollar defamation suit against Daniels alleging that he had never been formally arrested for or charged with domestic violence.
    • There have been violent outbursts against the press, including one incident when he was arrested for assaulting a photographer on a film set;Penn was sentenced to 60 days in jail in mid-1987, of which he served 33 days.
    • Around the same time, he struck Madonna, his wife at the time, over the head with a baseball bat, although she did not press charges.
    • In 1988, Penn was charged with felony domestic assault, a charge for which he pleaded to a misdemeanor. It was alleged that he had tied Madonna to a chair for nine hours and beat her, with the incident only ending when she escaped to a police station. Penn and Madonna divorced in 1989
