The increasingly ridiculous Rolling Stone magazine just posted its no-longer secret article, “El Chapo Speaks: A secret visit with the most wanted man in the world,” as recounted by actor and director Sean Penn. The New York Times broke the news earlier Saturday evening that the notorious Mexican drug lord, Joaquín Guzmán Loera, who escaped from a Mexican prison through an elaborate underground tunnel, had sat for a 7-hour interview with Penn and hoped to have a movie made about his life.

The New York Times reports:

In the end, the Mexican authorities said Friday night that Mr. Guzmán had been caught partly because he had been planning a movie about his life, and had contacted actors and producers, which had helped the authorities to track him down. Mr. Penn’s story says that Mr. Guzmán, inundated with Hollywood offers while in prison, had indeed elected to make his own movie. Ms. [Kate] del Castillo, whom he contacted through his lawyer after she posted supportive messages on Twitter, was the only person he trusted to shepherd the project, according to the story. Mr. Penn heard about the connection with Ms. del Castillo through a mutual acquaintance, and asked if he might do an interview.

What next, Rolling Stone?

  • Peggy Bundy

    Why isn’t he being charged with helping a convict on the run? (sorry if that sounds dumb, but i don’t get it)

    • Perso Nasplit

      It doesnt sound dumb, unless its the premise of the reason the question has to be asked thats dumb.

      Laws for thee, not for me. All hail The Party.

      Penn and the journalists interviewing the liberal ranchers who want more handouts should be arrested under freedom of the press in the Bill of RIghts

    El Chapo was probably Spicoli’s drug supplier.

    • Meowbius

      El Chapo was probably Spicoli’s drug supplier.
      Most likely, because he’s a major supplier in the US. He’s not wanted by DEA/DOJ for traffic violations, right?

  • Acuda4me ✓Please!

    I sure hope Sean Penn’s bumbling led the authorities to this guy.

    • Perso Nasplit

      Boy, I sure do hope, deep down, that El Chapo doesnt THINK that, and seek revenge or anything. Think of all the great things that might not happen if something were to befall Penn….

      • Deplorable Member Berry

        I was thinking that myself.If El chapo even THINKS Penn snitched, Sean could be in a deep bucket of kim-chi.

        • Acuda4me ✓Please!

          We can only hope.

          • Mr. Dave-O Bean ✓Grumpyfied

            I don’t hope death for Sean or anyone else who knowingly or ignorantly helped in Guzman’s capture. He didn’t do anything that’s worthy of death

          • Acuda4me ✓Please!

            Death, no. But looking over his shoulder and having to hire more armed guards for a few years, yes.

  • [email protected]

    He met el chapo in his two man boat with his photographer to rescue him, but didn’t have room to let him on board.


    Was Sean Penn such a “man of peace” when he was bitch slapping Madonna? ?

  • genes ✓ᵛᵉʳᶦᶠᶦᵉᵈ ᵈᵉᵖˡᵒʳᵃᵇˡᵉ

    Am I the only one that thinks that time has NOT been kind to Sean?

    • SupplyGuy

      Time, drugs, alcohol and copious amounts of porn and hookers haven’t been kind to him.

    • Acuda4me ✓Please!

      He looks like Jonathan Harris without the lovability.

      • Smith Jones

        Penn would make a horrid Dr. Smith.

    • The_Kat ✓vilified

      He’s heading down that Mickey Rourke road except Penn won’t be able to use the excuse that he was punched in the face a bunch of times.

    Looks like Penn unknowingly helped the authorities in tracking El Chapo down.
    If I was Penn, I’d be looking over my shoulder for awhile. Ooops. lol

  • Macsen Overdrive

    El Chapo really was that arrogant.

  • Mark1971

    Say what you want about El Chapo, but the guy knows how to pick out a shirt. Have to give him that.

    • CoastalMaineBird

      Say what you want about Sean Penn…

      • IBXNJ

        “You dick!!!”

  • ember

    Sean Penn will have his head removed from his body soon. Drug lord won’t care that he’s a celebrity.

    • Mark81150 Otter of Doomly

      I hope not… Penn’s an unmitigated ass, a communist hypocrite and a boil on the ass of humanity.. but……..

      I almost pity his blatant stupidity for getting himself into the middle of this… Celebrity’s and big profile crime lords together over drinks isn’t new.. Sinatra was doing it starting in the 30’s… through his brat pack days… a stupid conceit that some mega stars fell into…

      • John Galt

        Maybe one of the trappings of celebrity is an outsized ego…or is it the ego that leads them to pursue a life in the limelight? Either way, Penn has been stupendously arrogant and Varsity-level stupid for a LONG time…backing dictators and working against democracy and the United States and oppressed people in other countries. He deserves some cosmic justice.

        I hope his karma runs over his dogma.

      • ember

        I don’t feel sorry for him. He made his own choices. No one pushed him into using his name to promote progressiveness. He’s accountable for his own decisions.

    • The_Kat ✓vilified

      I’m sure he’ll have armed guards to protect him especially while he protests for more “sensible” gun control.

      • ember

        That cartel guy won’t care how many bullets he has to use to get to Penn. He’ll just take that security team out too. Bet Sean loses lots of friends. No one will want to be caught in the crossfire.

  • SouthTexas

    Aiding and abetting?

  • nc ✓s & balances

    Sure seems like Penn knows an awful lot of criminals and dictators. And they sure are an awful lot.

    • thale_taxurfeet ♂ Vilified

  • Cärlös Dängër ✓certifiable


  • lilwren

    …the Socialist capitalizing on sensational, immoral lifestyle to glorify his ego. The implicit guilt of drug use in USA that fuels the cartels is part & parcel of the decadence pumped out via the media (Whorlywood, TV — cable & network, MSM, cRap so-called music, Christophobia, etc.), where SP dwells, like Quentin Tarantino, Michael Moore, et al., inhabiting a pseudo reality of association, stuck on the Twilight Zone channel…

    • thale_taxurfeet ♂ Vilified

      …”drug use in USA that fuels the cartels”…

      Bears repeating…

  • san rafael blue

    I’m betting the Obama Administration knew about this and Obama had to be talked out of taking Sean Penn’s place as the Honorary Cub Reporter of the Day. “But, but, but I want to do the interview!! It, It, it it would be Historic!!! Michelle O. rolls her eyes and sighs deeply.

    • MarciaTheMurkyMuse🌠 Variegated

      Oh, if only they’d have let him!

  • san rafael blue

    Sean this is a Faustian deal you just made!
    Think of your children, and what is left of your ‘career’.
    Sean Penn is a Bad American!!

    • Mark81150 Otter of Doomly

      always has been… proving the old adage that many an actor has the brain of a flea… they needn’t be smart to play pretend..

  • EndangeredNJRepub

    Why do I get the strong feeling that Penn only interviewed that scumbag just so he could say to people that he interviewed that scumbag. I swear Penn is the epitome of the ivory tower liberal, the kind of guy that does everything and anything to score cred with his liberal pals.

  • Maxgoof

    So, I think Rolling Stone is trying to spend all of their money and then some so when that UVA Fraternity wins their lawsuit against them, they can simply shut their door.

  • Oysteria (I won)

    I respectfully submit to Rolling Stone a new title for their story:

    Communist Crap Sack has 7 Hour Lovefest with Ego Maniacal Murderous Drug Lord.

  • wharfrat

    It’s a wonder that Penn didn’t join El Chapo and help him with his drug business, he has gone with left wing before and is a bit of a dumb a**,and anti American and his so called acting career is two bit,he can’t make a movie where people will pay to see.

  • Donald-Now 3x as Deplorable

    So…Is Michael Moore on board to produce and direct this film or doesn’t he do biographies? Pity John Belushi is dead he would have ben great as “El Chapo”. Maybe Jack Black instead?

  • Dan13

    As it turns out El Achapo was caught because if his association with Hollywood. I am going to cry Obama tears when Penn gets whacked on Sunset Blvd.

  • AxeWound

    Does it get any more disgusting looking at Penn shake the hand of a murdering drug dealer? Guzman admitted to killing 2000 – 3000 people. Guzman is wanted for the torture and death of a DEA agent. Penn is an un american worthless piece of dog shit

    • Sanchez

      Guzman is head of the Sinaloa cartel funded and armed by Obama and Holder in the Fast and Furious scandal.

  • John Galt

    It would be the best final chapter to this story if it were found out that Spicoli led the authorities to this scumbag, and then he had Spicoli whacked for causing his capture.

    God, are you listening? I know that we haven’t been on speaking terms for a long while…okay, never. But if you could just do this one thing for humanity, I’m sure that it would bring a smile to millions of faces. And I promise that I won’t do that thing to those ducks anymore. Thanks much.

    • QueenB

      I was thinking the exact same thing. Let’s get that rumor started!

  • Meowbius

    Am I the only one who thinks of thugs bragging stolen iPhones and bling on YT and FB only to be seen and caught by the police? Poor El Chapo, victim of his adolescent vanity 🙂

    • thale_taxurfeet ♂ Vilified

      El Chapo is not worried. He’s still in Mexico and will probably never be extradited. He’ll be riding his tunnel-scooter again in no time.

      • Petrucio14

        He owns at least 3/4 of the Mexican government. Why should he worry?

        • thale_taxurfeet ♂ Vilified

          Yep. Ya get what ya pay for…


    When a liberal does something like this, it is just so totally EDGY…

  • twfuller

    Sean Penn is more of an American traitor than Benedict Arnold was. And Arnold had more of a legitimate reason for why he became a turncoat. What the hell is Penn’s excuse for his deep seeded hatred of America?

  • globalcrap

  • edbo


    • Sanchez

      Is there really a way to decide?

      • Petrucio14

    I guess Penn was interviewing Hugo Chavez’s replacement.

  • Kawfy

  • Deplorable Nigel Pinchley

    Look what someone scraped off their shoe.

  • CoastalMaineBird

    Because the whole world wants to listen to, or read, seven hours of Jeff Spicoli yammering…

  • notenoughtime

    Another self absorbed celebrity who thinks that intelligence written on paper in a script translates to real life. Seems to me that Penn is obsessed with lawless criminals.

    • David Majors

      Probably saw a kindred soul.

  • Sanchez

    An Obama/Holder connection too!

    “A high-ranking member of the Sinaloa drug cartel operative currently

    in U.S. custody alleges that Operation Fast and Furious was part of an
    agreement to finance and arm the Sinaloa cartel in exchange for
    information used to take down rival cartels, according to court

    The statement was made by Jesus Vicente Zambada-Niebla,
    the Sinaloa cartel’s “logistics coordinator” in charge of arranging
    massive drug shipments from Latin America to the United States as well
    as the son of cartel leader Ismael “Mayo” Zambada-Garcia and a close
    associate to kingpin Joaquin “El Chapo” Guzman.”

  • Sanchez

    PLEASE make it true this useful idiot led the Federales to Guzman.

    PLEASE make it true.

  • Sanchez

    I bet Penn used this to write his screenplay and he will star as Guzman in a new film.

    • The_Kat ✓vilified

      If he lives long enough.

  • LR99

    This moron needs to forced to lay in one of the mass unmarked graves of the victims of drug violence! Think of all the innocent people who have been murdered by these evil men and this actor thinks nothing of it! Someone needs to give Penn a good kicking!

  • Right Wired ✓ᵛᵉʳᶦᶠᶦᵉᵈ

    Time to put Sin in the pen.

  • ThomasOfKC

    From the “Falcon & The Snowman” to “I’m just a Stoned Moron” in 4 quick decades. Bet Sean Penn beat feet to get out of that jungle.

  • JDW

    Sad that a man of Penn’s artistic talents is supportive of tyrants (e.g. Chavez, Castro, et al) and murderers.

    • thunderclancat

      Very true. He’s actually decent in some movies, but he is such a colossal creep, that I’ll never see one of his films again.

  • Zhytamyr

    What are the chances that Penn gets whacked by an illegal alien felon with deferred deportation using a Fast and Furious weapon on El Chapo’s orders? I should talk to a bookie.

  • ee1774

    Mexico: “Sean Penn interview helped once locate drug lord….”

    “A Mexican federal law enforcement official, speaking on condition of anonymity because he was not permitted to comment on the issue, told the Associated Press it was the Penn interview that led authorities to Guzman in a rural part of Durango state in October.”

  • nomorelies343

    Hollywood hates America and loves drug lords, what else is new

    God I hope the Mexican government arrests Penn, and send him to prison after one of their famous Kangaroo-court trials.

  • Mr. Dave-O Bean ✓Grumpyfied

    I’m not a lib, but the fact is, they would be singing a different tune if Sean was a conservative

    • Jayhawkfan63

      Sean is only a line memorizer, and too stupid to understand what he has done. A conservative would have set up an interview only to help trap the murdering piece of crap.

  • Oak Tree Lady

    When can we start prosecuting these people as traitors?

  • Billboy89

    Penn’s daddy was a good example of the commies that tried (and were somewhat successful) to take over Hollywood in the 50’s. He is a chip off the old block, and is as anti-American as they come, all while enjoying the fruits of his acting wealth. In recent years, he has palled around with Castro and Chavez, and has also spent time visiting mosques in Iran. The fact that he would meet with El Chapo the drug lord is actually pretty light fare for him.
