Charlie Sheen has been digging himself into a hole the past few weeks by giving statements that cross the border of sane. Most recently, his show Two and Half Men has shut down production for the rest of the year and no word has been said on whether or not it will be back next season. The decision to shut it down came directly from the big guns.
“Based on the totality of Charlie Sheen’s statements, conduct and condition, CBS and Warner Bros. Television have decided to discontinue production of ‘Two and a Half Men’ for the remainder of the season.”
I might be going out on a limb here, but it seems that Sheen’s challenge to fight the creator might have thrown up a red flag at CBS and Warner Bros. Television. Include that with his “polite” comments on Chuck Lorre and you have yourself a ticking time bomb.
“I violently hate Chaim Levine (Chuck Lorre). He’s a stupid, stupid little man and a p**sy punk that I’d never want to be like.”
I violently hate mustard and I can honestly say that if Charlie Sheen’s disdain for Chuck Lorre is anything like mine for mustard, then Lorre better watch his ass. After Charlie got word of the shut down, he decided to ink an open letter to vent his frustrations, again, for Chuck Lorre. The letter reads:
What does this say about Chaim Levine [Chuck Lorre] after he tried to use his words to judge and attempt to degrade me. I gracefully ignored this folly for 177 shows … I fire back once and this contaminated little maggot can’t handle my power and can’t handle the truth. I wish him nothing but pain in his silly travels especially if they wind up in my octagon. Clearly I have defeated this earthworm with my words — imagine what I would have done with my fire breathing fists. I urge all my beautiful and loyal fans who embraced this show for almost a decade to walk with me side-by-side as we march up the steps of justice to right this unconscionable wrong.
Remember these are my people … not yours…we will continue on together…
You read that correctly. Fire-Breathing-Fists. After hearing that Charlie Sheen would like to meet Chuck Lorre in his octagon, el presidente of the UFC Dana White said he would set them up for the co-main event of UFC 127 this weekend. Obviously this is a complete joke, but Dana gave his prediction by saying that he has Sheen winning by a “brutal knockout”. If that wasn’t enough, he is now being accused of being an anti-semite because he referred to Lorre as “Chaim”, which is the Hebrew translation of his birthname. Sheen claimed that he was just referring to him by his real name and not the “bullshit TV persona”. He also added that calling him by his real name does not make him an anti-semite, just like people who call him Carlos Estevez are not anti-latinos. Point to Sheen/Estevez on that one.
Since this whole strippers and blow bender happened, I have been laughing at the shit that has come out of Charlie Sheen’s mouth but I think he has finally cracked here. There is clearly some kind of imbalance in this mans body, and I’m not referring to the blow-to-no-blow ratio either. If all of this wasn’t enough, he recently blasted Alcoholics Anonymous by claiming they are a “bootleg cult” and they only have a 5% success rate, which is true…the success rate, I won’t comment on the bootleg cult.
His rants are getting more and more out there and far fetched. Dr. Drew has told TMZ that his rants are “getting manic” and he is exhibiting “bi-polar and manic symptoms”.
Even if they decide to end the show forever people will still be getting paid. Residuals from syndication will still be coming in, plus the rest of the cast isn’t blacklisted in Hollywood, so they should get a fair shot as some other rolls. As for Charlie Sheen though, he is slowly becoming the next Lindsay Lohan and the CEO of Morgan Creek Productions has said that if he doesn’t get his act together there will be no part for him in the upcoming Major League 3.
Earth to Sheen: You’re completely f*cking yourself over. Get a clue.
