Today in Charlie Sheenanigans: Sheen slams AA and 'Two and a Half Men' creator
Another day, another chocolate-milk-fueled rant: On Thursday, silence-adverse "Two and a Half Men" star Charlie Sheen called into "The Alex Jones Show" radio program and took a shot at Alcoholics Anonymous and Chuck Lorre, the co-creator of his hit show, adding to an ever-lengthening list of targets that also includes Lindsay Lohan.
"I was told if I went on the attack, they would cancel the show," Sheen said of his CBS bosses. But that didn't seem to stop him.
Angered by the vanity card that Lorre aired after an episode of "Two and a Half Men" saying he'd be angry if Sheen outlived him, Sheen called the executive producer a “clown” and tried to insult him by revealing that his real name is “Haim Levine.” (It's actually Charles Michael Levine.)
“I didn’t care about that vanity card, I went straight home and dispelled that, that was actually one of the few compliments that clown has paid me in frickin’ almost a decade,” Sheen said on the show.
“I embarrassed him in front of his children and the world by healing at a pace that his un-evolved mind cannot process.... I’ve spent, I think, close to the last decade, I don’t know, 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.”
Sheen has previously admitted that his sobriety has been "off and on," though he brushed off the idea that AA would help him, calling the organization a “bootleg cult” with a 5% success rate. Sheen insisted that he'd been healing himself with his mind.
This isn't the first time Sheen has opined so freely on "The Alex Jones Show": in 2009, he went on the air to publicly request that President Obama reopen the official investigation into 9/11 to see whether the government agreed to lie about the official story.
Whether this most recent interview would inspire similar controversy didn't seem to worry Sheen. Asked about his health, he replied "It’s all good guys. Quit panicking. No panic, no judgment.... You can kill me but you do not have the right to judge me.”
