Chuck Lorre Addresses Charlie Sheen Situation in 'Mike & Molly' Vanity Card

"I understand that I'm under a lot of pressure to respond to certain statements made about me recently," the "Two and a Half Men" co-creator wrote.

Two and a Half Men creator Chuck Lorre seemingly addressed the Charlie Sheen situation in the vanity card on one of his other CBS shows Monday night.

Lorre didn't call Sheen out by name in the card, which aired at the end of Mike & Molly, but it seems clear that Lorre was responding to angry attacks recently made against him by Sheen.

Here's what the vanity card said:

I understand that I'm under a lot of pressure to respond to certain statements made about me recently. The following are my uncensored thoughts. I hope this will put an end to any further speculation. I believe that consciousness creates the illusion of individuation, the false feeling of being separate. In other words, I am aware, ergo I am alone. I further believe that this existential misunderstanding is the prime motivating force for the neurotic compulsion to blot out consciousness. This explains the paradox of our culture, which celebrates the ego while simultaneously promoting its evisceration with drugs and alcohol. It also clarifies our deep-seated fear of monolithic, one-minded systems like communism, religious fundamentalism, zombies and invaders from Mars. Each one is a dark echo of an oceanic state of unifying transcendence from which consciousness must, by nature, flee. The Fall from Grace is, in fact, a Sprint from Grace. Or perhaps more accurately, "Screw Grace, I am so outta here!" Questions?
