Don't you just love a good old-fashioned celebrity feud? Wyclef Jean is reportedly furious at Sean Penn for criticizing his bid for Haitian presidency and is now lashing out, calling him a "coke sniffer."

Wyclef has accused Sean of not noticing all the good work he's done for Haiti, because he was too busy snorting cocaine.

He said: "I got a message for Sean Penn - maybe he ain't see me in Haiti because he was too busy sniffing cocaine."

When Wycleft first announced his intention to run, Sean said he felt Wyclef’s campaign was "about a vision of flying around the world, talking to people."

He later said: “As an ambassador at large, he has been virtually silent.” He also wrote in a newspaper column: “None among us felt or expressed anger toward it, but rather a universal sadness for his silence, as he is America's most admired cultural link to Haiti."

A rep for Sean, Mara Buxbaum, said in a statement: “Mr. Jean is clearly unfamiliar with the physical demands put upon volunteers in Haiti. As aid workers there, the notion of depleting the body’s immune system thru the use of illicit drugs is ludicrous.

“More specifically, J/P Haitian Relief Organization (a.k.a. JPHRO) has a ZERO tolerance policy for any and all illegal drugs.
"As the leader of this organization, Sean Penn has not only set this policy, but adheres to it. That Mr. Jean would make such a false accusation is reckless and saddening, but not surprising."

Haiti's electoral officials already declared that he was ineligible to run, so what's the point of them lashing out at each other in the press? Oh that's right, it's fun.
