Sean Penn recently wrote the book “Bob Honey Who Just Do Stuff”, which seems to be controversial since before it was even published. The book hammers in on some of the most controversial issues in the present day American culture as well as taking some fictional punches at the fictional president who is eerily similarly described in the liking of the actual president. “Bob Honey Who Just Do Stuff” also takes a few swings at culturally sensitive issues such as he #metoo movement and is described as “Infantilizing” and also as a “toddler’s crusade”.
Sean Penn told the CBS Sunday Morning that he thinks that some people will really like it while other’s will absolutely loathe it. And that is what he was expecting. It’s what he wanted it to say about him. Penn has seemingly projected his world views into his new book. “Bob Honey Who Just Do Stuff” is also somewhat of a catharsis. A venting of sorts for the actor turned author.
By the way, Sean mentioned that he decided to become an author because he got tired of not being able to “play well” with other’s in the movie industry. He feels that the industry has become somewhat saturated and flooded with too many movies for there to be something special. Even Netflix is now producing about 700 new shows.
“Bob Honey Who Just Do Stuff” is based in a dystopian like world. The character is a sad, middle aged man who sells septic tanks to Jehovas witnesses and has a hard time connecting with people. However, his views are not totally hopeless and bleak. Sean Penn places his hopes on the youth of today.
Drawing attention to his new book has not been an issue at for Sean Penn. Snippets of it were released before it was published and caused immediate controversy because of the American cultural issues that were discussed. Even though his book is almost a pure reactionary vent for the award winning actor, it seems that doing so is also trending. Bandwagoning is also another issue that really irritates the character in the book.
