Wyclef Jean is responding to actor Sean Penn for publicly criticizing him after announcing his official bid for President Of Haiti.

As previously reported Penn was quoted saying that the impoverished country’s next leader had to be “genuinely willing to sacrifice” and that he “hadn’t seen or heard of Wyclef since he’d traveled to Haiti to help relief efforts.”

Now Wyclef’s firing back at the actor and saying that he should meet with him to “fully understand the man.”

“I just want Sean Penn to fully understand I am a Haitian, born in Haiti and I’ve been coming to my country ever since (I was) a child. He might just want to pick up the phone and meet, so he fully understands the man.”

Clef is also facing opposition from his very own bandmate Pras from the Fugees.

Pras has been adamant about not endorsing his old musical partner and instead encouraged people to vote for his opponent Michel Martelly.
