During a Canadian press conference for All The King’s Men, Sean Penn thought he was above the no indoor smoking law and lit up a cigarette. People are now angry that he didn’t receive a ticket from the anti-smoking police. Yes. They have anti-smoking police.
Critics said it will appear the new Smoke-Free Ontario Act, which outlaws smoking in indoor public spaces, doesn’t apply to the rich and famous unless something is done.
“It was such a flagrant breach of the law,” said Michael Perly, executive director of the Ontario Campaign for Action on Tobacco.
Everyone knows celebrities are above the law. Laws are for peons. Rich and famous people like Penn and I. We’re no peons. No way. No how.
