It’s all about Charlie Sheen today and hot on the heels of his rant on the Alex Jones show, he has quickly defended his stance on Chuck Lorre by saying that he is not anti-Semitic and that his comments have been misconstrued.
Sheen made a reference to Chuck Lorre’s origins by calling him ‘Chaim Levine’ during that fateful rant and it has quickly become a hot internet talking point.
Chuck Lorre’s birth name is Charles Levine and Sheen’s translation into Hebrew has caused many sections of the public and press to stir up a witch hunt against the ailing (almost former) TV star, calling him a racist and muddying his name further than he could seem to manage by himself; although he’s not doing too bad a job on his own.
Sheen’s actions are certainly questionable these days but to add to his worries by burdening him with the label ‘anti-Semitic’ is frankly, quite appalling. We’re witnessing the steady disassembly of a man who has rocketed to fame and slowly sunk with each new venture until today, where he stands almost alone as he sees his life fall apart around him.
He has offered an explanation to the public over his remarks through the ever reliable medium of TMZ, to whom he said, “I was referring to Chuck by his real name, because I wanted to address the man, not the bulls**t TV persona.”
And he added, “So you’re telling me, anytime someone calls me Carlos Estevez, I can claim they are anti-Latino?”
[adsense]So that settles that then. Hang on, where’s the apology to Alcoholics Anonymous? An organization who have done nothing but try to steer people in the right direction; away from situations like the one Sheen finds himself in now.
We’ve undoubtedly not heard the last of Sheen and his crazy, imploding and self destructive behaviour, and just when you think he’s calming down he pops up with another social hand grenade.
I for one won’t lose any sleep over him, but once the ashes have settles over Tripoli and the carnival is in full swing, I’ll have the popcorn ready for Sheen’s next installment. Just in case.
Please leave a comment about Sheen and his alleged anti-Semitism, or his clearly failing mental state.
