The “Two and a Half Men” star breaks silence after checking into rehab Friday.

Charlie Sheen has spoken out for the first time since his latest trip to the hospital led him to check into rehab.

“I’m fine,” the Two and a Half Men star tells RadarOnline via text message Friday afternoon. “People don’t seem to get it.... Guy can’t have a great time and do his job also?”

Sheen’s text came around the time the actor’s publicist released a statement, according to the report, saying that Sheen was voluntarily checking into rehab after the actor was hospitalized Thursday morning for a reported hernia.

Sheen’s text ended with: “Bunch of turds.”

CBS, Warner Bros. TV and Men creator Chuck Lorre released a joint statement announcing that the hit CBS sitcom would be put on production hiatus while Sheen was in rehab.

"We are profoundly concerned for his health and well-being, and support his decision," the statement said.
