Human calamity Charlie Sheen has been fired from long running TV comedy Two and a Half Men after tipping bosses over the edge by hurling insults at producers and conducting crazy interviews.
“After careful consideration, Warner Bros. Television has terminated Charlie Sheen’s services on “Two and a Half Men” effective immediately,” read a statement released by Warner Bros Television.
Sheen, now aged 45 but looking more like 55, was until Monday the highest earning actor on US TV, raking in a staggering $2 million per episode; with Two and A Half Men rated the most popular comedy on the CBS network.
The rest of the current series was cancelled 10 days ago after Sheen belittled Chuck Lorre, calling him a, “stupid, stupid little man.” Fierce stuff.
Since then Sheen has holed up in his ‘Sober Valley Lodge’ with a group of followers, emerging only periodically to do interviews; most notably with psychotic fear monger Alex Jones, a man who takes conspiracy theorism to a whole new, dangerous and pathetic level.
He has since introduced Sheen’s Korner; a completely painful and pointless ‘podcast’ affair in which Sheen extols the virtues of ‘winning’ while drinking ‘tiger blood’ and calling himself a ‘warlock’ all too frequently. I think he’s trying to entertain people but it looks more like the seeds of a religious cult beginning to flourish.
Despite claims by the actor that he is sober after a stint in rehab back in January, he looks far from it in footage from his latest venture.
Charlie Sheen fired back
In response to his sacking Sheen said: “This is very good news.”
“They continue to be in breach, like so many whales. It is a big day of gladness at the Sober Valley Lodge because now I can take all of the bazillions, never have to look at whatshiscock again and I never have to put on those silly shirts for as long as this warlock exists in the terrestrial dimension.”
[adsense]Warner Bros. have said that no decision has been made about the future of Two and a Half Men in which Sheen pretty much plays himself; that being a sleazy, womanizing egotist with bad shirts and equally bad jokes.
He has turned his attention to self-promoting again after losing the services of his publicist, and with around two million followers on Twitter he is still reaching a big audience; even if most of them are only there to see the moment he finally implodes.
Sheen’s Korner was viewed by almost 100,000 people, but if any of them found it entertaining then frankly they need an education in taste and quality for Sheen’s lame attempt at both failed miserably. The only thing he is ‘winning’ is the race to be the biggest idiot on the planet.
He’s miles ahead in fact.
