    While some social media users joked about Penn’s spelling error, others seemed amused about the prospects of the Vatican "impeaching" Evangelicals.

    Hollywood star and director Sean Penn has recently been mocked online after he made a gaff while berating evangelical leaders in a tweet.

    According to the Breitbart News Network, Penn was responding to Nikki Hailey – Trump’s former ambassador to the UN, who said the 45th POTUS is guilty of inciting riots, and that the Republicans "should not have followed him" – when he slipped up. 

    "Evangelical leaders should themselves be impeached by the Vatican if they themselves don’t follow Nikki Haley’s lead & clearly state they should not have followed Satin (sic!) into the bowels of hell", Sean Penn wrote. "But, perhaps they are too busy at sex parties".

    ​Quite a few social media users, however, focused their attention on the actor’s misspelling of the word "Satan," jokingly inquiring about who or what was he referring to.

    Some were also quick to point out that the Pope’s authority, however considerable it may be, does not extend to Protestant Christian denominations.

    At least one netizen, however, claimed that 100 percent of baptised Christians are "under the Vatican."
