Sean Penn’s Rolling Stone interview with El Chapo that was released on Saturday now has a lot of star reacting. See celebrity reactions below to the controversial article.

As Gossip Cop previously reported, Penn’s interview was published a day after the leader of the Sinaloa drug cartel was captured again by Mexican authorities. El Chapo’s talk with Penn was the first he had given in decades, and had been conducted in October in a remote Mexican jungle. Since the release of the article, an unnamed Mexican official has claimed the interview was helpful in leading authorities to El Chapo’s hideout.

Geraldo Rivera commended Penn for his Rolling Stone interview, noting, “It’s not a crime or jerky to be a journalist. Remember John Miller and fugitive #BinLaden? Bravo Sean Penn & #RollingStone on #ElChapo scoop.” Tom Bergeron joked, “Reading about Sean Penn’s interview. Almost as dangerous as my interview with Elle Chapstick.”

Kathy Griffin posted a photo of herself standing next to Penn, with a horrified look on her face, which she captioned, “You’re not gonna BELIEVE what #SeanPenn just told me ;) #ElChapo #KATHY.” And referring to reports about hoe El Chapo had been working on a film about himself, Steve Martin cracked, “El Chapo wanted me to play ‘the funny guy.’” Gossip Cop will continue to add more celebrity reactions to Penn’s interview with El Chapo.
