CBS Responds to Charlie Sheen, Suspends Shooting on Two and a Half Men
Two and a Half Men was scheduled to resume shooting on Monday. Then, Charlie Sheen opened his ridiculous mouth.
First, he went on a radio show and said all THIS. Then, he spoke to TMZ and challenged sitcom creator Chuck Lorre to a fight, saying:
“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.”
Sheen continued: “That piece of s**t [Lorre] took money out of my pocket, my family’s pocket, and, most importantly, my second family – my crew’s pocket… you can tell him [Lorre] one thing. I own him.”
In response, CBS and Warner Bros. have issued the following statement:
“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.”
UPDATE: Naturally, Sheen has now fired back at Lorre. He’s released this letter to TMZ:
What does this say about Haim 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.
The question must be asked, however: does Sheen have any fans remaining? You tell us!
