Now Charlie Sheen is Insane AND Unemployed

In case you weren’t entirely convinced Charlie Sheen was batshit insane—despite being caught naked in a bathroom with coke all over his face, abusing ex-wife Brooke Mueller and reportedly smoking crack cocaine with porn stars—Sheen gave a hilarious and terrifying radio interview with Alex Jones yesterday in which he made Anti-Semitic remarks about Two and a Half Men creator Chuck Lorre, claimed he was sober by using the power of his mind and said he had “magic and poetry in his fingertips.”  Jones—a close friend of Sheen’s—admitted he was “speechless”, but also defended the actor by saying that he, in fact, suffers from a hernia (“I’ve seen it!”), and that when they worked out together at a private gym recently, Sheen appeared energetic and ready to get back to work.

Unfortunately, returning to the set doesn’t seem very likely anymore. After Sheen made those colorful remarks about Lorre, production was shut down immediately “based on the totality of Charlie Sheen’s statements, conduct and condition,” according to an official statement from the show.

Sheen hasn’t taken the news of the show’s cancellation lightly. He fired off a letter to TMZ that read:

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… Charlie Sheen

Put that in your crack pipe and smoke it! What I find most interesting about this public mental breakdown is not the things Sheen has said—the man is a crazy drug addict and is clearly not well—but the fact that it has been allowed to continue for this long. Actions have only been made when Sheen attacks the ego of his hit show’s creator. That’s the final straw—not the allegations of domestic violence, not the overdoses, not the galavanting around with porn stars—making anti-semitic remarks about Lorre is what inspired them to stop enabling Sheen. That’s not to say that what Sheen did was NBD. However, I feel like production should’ve been halted five overdoses and abused hookers ago.

Listen to the whole radio interview and feel very good about yourself and your mental state. Also, drugs or no drugs, I get the feeling that Sheen (using his own choice of words) is a giant turd. Thought Catalog Logo Mark
