School addresses Charlie Sheen's Twitter rant, threats
A Calabasas school on Thursday said actor Charlie Sheen may have placed it at risk by posting a message on Twitter encouraging his fans to leave rotten eggs, toilet paper and dog excrement at campus where his daughter once attended.
Charlie Sheen, known for his Twitter message rants, wrote that his daughter was bullied and called a liar.
"It's on!," Sheen tweeted.
He urged anyone with "rotted eggs, a roll of toilet paper" or dog waste to deliver it with "extreme prejudice" to Viewpoint School.
On Twitter, he encouraged his followers to make him proud and not tolerate the disrespect to his daughter. He encouraged them to smear the excrement in the name of the child he apparently believed was involved in the bullying.
In a statement to The Times, Viewpoint School said its "highest priority is the safety, security and education of our students."
"Like all responsible schools across our nation, we are concerned when any individual uses a social media forum to encourage actions that may risk the safety and security of any school," the school said.
The school did not mention Sheen by name, but noted that the student in question has not attended the school since March 2012.
"Our administrators addressed the issue appropriately at that time. Our school takes accusations of bullying very seriously," the school added in a statement.
Los Angeles County sheriff's officials said they sent deputies to the school and found no problems.
