Sean Penn refuses to aplogize for 'Green Card' remark made during Oscars

Actor Sean Penn is refusing to aplogize for his remark during the Academy Awards broadcast, where he said ":Who gave this son of a bitch his green card?" before announcing the winner of Best Picture, "Birdman." The film was directed by Mexican-born Alejandro Iñárritu.

Associated Press:

"I found it hilarious," Iñárritu said after the ceremony. "Sean and I have that kind of brutal (relationship) where only true friendship can survive."

Iñárritu directed Penn in the 2003 film "21 Grams" and the two remain close to this date.

"I make on him a lot of very tough jokes that I will not tell you," Iñárritu added.

While Iñárritu's casual dismissal of any perceived offense helped to temper the public response to the comment, Penn has remained largely silent on the topic.

"I'm always surprised by flagrant stupidity. I keep having more hope," said Penn of the widespread outrage that followed the moment.

"The fact is that I understand it. I see it all the time. When somebody sees the opportunity to frame something in the comfort that it will be common_that they can do that and they can get a group to look at them and that they will take on those positions and never really think about what it was," he added.

"I have absolutely no apologies," Penn said with calm resolve.

"In fact, I have a big (expletive) you for every...anybody who is so stupid not to have gotten the irony when you've got a country that is so xenophobic," he said. "If they had their way, you wouldn't have great filmmakers like Alejandro working in this country. Thank god we do."

Liberals lie in wait for conservatives to make a comment like that and then mercilessly pounce on them with a firestorm of criticism.

And Penn is complaining that people are doing it to him?

Conservatives are not given the benefit of doubt in situations like this and are forced to get on their knees and apologize again and again. Meanwhile, Penn defiantly refuses to say he's sorry and even cusses out his critics while failing to acknowledge the double standard.

Just another day in liberal Hollywood.
