Sean Penn is suing Lee Daniels, the co-creator of "Empire" and director of "The Butler," in a $10 million defamation suit.
In the suit, Penn accuses the director of suggesting he hits women, like "Empire" star Terrence Howard.
Daniels told The Hollywood Reporter: "[Terrence] ain't done nothing different than Marlon Brando or Sean Penn, and all of a sudden he's some f---in' demon. That's a sign of the time, of race, or where we are right now in America."
