Charlie Sheen Makes Anti-Semitic Attack on 'Two and a Half' Men Creator
Actor's lengthy radio rant also takes aim at Alcoholics Anonymous, Scientology and the press.
Two and a Half Men star Charlie Sheen lashed out at the show's co-creator Chuck Lorre during an interview on the syndicated Alex Jones Show Thursday.
Saying he was told that if he went on "attack" execs would cancel the show, Sheen repeatedly referred to the showrunner as "Chaim Levine" before going off on Lorre's vanity card last week that said "If Charlie Sheen outlives me, I'm gonna be really pissed." (Lorre's birth name is Charles Levine.)
Sheen said, "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." He continued, "I embarrassed him in front of his children and the world by healing at a pace that this un-evolved mind cannot process. I’ve spent, I think, close to the last decade I don’t know effortlessly and magically converted your tin can into pure gold. And the gratitude I get is this charlatan chose not to do his job, which is to write."
Sheen also had words about Alcoholics Anonymous, Scientology and the press. "I don't subscribe to any part of the model," he said of AA, which he referred to as a cult. "They brainwashed my friends and my family." Scientology? Sheen called it "the church of the Martian idiot."
Referring to the press, the actor said, "They don't know me. I'm rolling out magic bro and I must save it for my family."
"I'm giving them what they want," he said of his rant.
Sheen later went on to attack Lorre on TMZ, saying he "violently hated" Lorre, whom he called "a stupid, stupid little man." Sheen challenged Lorre to a fight, saying "If he wins, then he can leave my show."
Sheen added, "You can tell him [Lorre] one thing. I own him."
In November's Hollywood Reporter cover story about Lorre, the writer spoke of the specific casting requirements for Two and a Half Men, a show about how “a child might be a positive influence on the life of a degenerate." Lorre told THR, "For some reason, the words 'Charlie Sheen' came to mind."
