Sean Penn’s green card crack at director Alejandro González Iñárrit hasn’t gone down too well, but his jibe has made him trend on Twitter under the hashtag #SeanPenn.
At the Oscars 2015 show last night actor Sean Penn said just before handing out the Independent Spirit Award for Best Picture to the Birdman director, “who gave this son of a b**ch his green card?’
The Mexican director didn’t even bat an eye lid after the words from Penn’s mouth, but thousands of people have said what the actor said was offensive and racist. When Penn said what he said, Alejandro González Iñárrit went on to talk about the plight of Mexicans in the US. Also saying United States was founded by immigrants, CTV News reports.
Iñárritu apparently found the joke funny, but thousands of people on Twitter do not agree. Outrage on social media still continues, below are a few tweets after the green card crack. Twitter users are still sending in the tweets on how they feel.
