Charlie Sheen apologizes to Ashton Kutcher but not to former show
Sheen, who had appeared to calm down after repeatedly bashing "Two and a Half Men," the CBS sitcom from which he was fired, lashed out last week to blast the series and Ashton Kutcher, who replaced him on the show.
"I'm tired of lying," Sheen said in a call to "TMZ Live." "I'm tired of pretending the show doesn't suck, I'm tired of pretending Ashton doesn't suck. I'm tired of pretending that they're not completely adrift. Because when you take away the anchor of the show, which they stupidly did, you go adrift. And these guys are approaching salvage vessel."
But Sheen has now issued an apology — at least to Kutcher. In a statement that started as a tweet, Sheen said, "Dear Ashton — my bad. I was disrespectful of a man doing his best. I got excited and threw you into a crossfire. The rest of my statement I stand behind. You, however, deserve better. Safety in your travels, good sir."
He signed the statement "The "late" Charlie Harper," the character he played on the series.
