Sheen launches foul-mouthed tirade on Lorre

Network bosses at CBS suspended filming on the sitcom at the end of January (11) to allow Sheen time to undergo rehab treatment for substance abuse issues.

The actor has previously blasted TV chiefs, including show creator Chuck Lorre, for staging a “forced hiatus”, insisting he has been ready to return to work on the programme for weeks.

Lorre responded by poking fun at Sheen’s personal struggles and reports about his wild personal life in a brief statement, which was tagged on to the end of the credits to an episode earlier this month (Feb11).

He wrote, “I don’t drink. I don’t smoke. I don’t do drugs. I don’t have crazy, reckless sex with strangers. If Charlie Sheen outlives me, I’m gonna be really p**sed.”

Sheen initially laughed off Lorre’s dig, but now he has responded to the comments by declaring his “hate” for the writer, calling him a “turd” who is preventing the show from continuing.

Calling into a U.S. radio show from the Bahamas, where he is currently on vacation, Sheen said, “I embarrassed him (Lorre) in front of his children and the world by healing at a pace that his un-evolved mind cannot process.

“Last I checked… I’ve spent, I think, close to the last decade effortlessly and magically converting your tin cans into pure gold. And the gratitude I get is this charlatan chose not to do his job, which is to write… Well, you’ve been warned, dude. Bring it.”

Sheen then later continued his rant, calling Lorre, “a stupid, stupid little man and a p**sy punk that I’d never want to be like.

“All these guys told me to clean it up. Well this is me cleaning it the f**k up… All I want is to bring my family together, and I have to deal with all this B.S. politics. 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.”
