It looks like Charlie Sheen’s war of words and a challenge to a fight against the creator of Two and a Half Men, Chuck Lorre has ended with Sheen losing – big time.
CBS issued a statement,
“Based on the totality of Charlie Sheen’s statements, conduct and condition, CBS and Warner Bros. Television have decided to discontinue production of ‘Two and a Half Men’ for the remainder of the season,” CBS and Warner Bros. said in a statement.
Sheen attacked Two and a Half Men creator Chuck Lorre on radio and in an interview with TMZ. Sheen called Lorre a “clown” and a “charlatan.” Sheen also said he was solely responsible for the success of “Two and a Half Men,” saying he had turned the “tin can” of a show into “pure gold.”
Sheen told TMZ (about Lorre),
“He’s a stupid, stupid little man and a p*ssy punk that I’d never want to be like. That’s me being polite. He continued, “All these guys told me to ‘clean it up.’ Well this is me cleaning it the f*ck up. All I want is to bring my family together, and I have to deal with all this B.S. politics.”
Late Thursday night Charlie Sheen has responded to his show, Two and a Half Men, shutting down in an open letter he gave to TMZ.
The letter reads:
What does this say about Haim Levine [Chuck Lorre] after he tried to use his words to judge and attempt to degrade me. I gracefully ignored this folly for 177 shows … I fire back once and this contaminated little maggot can’t handle my power and can’t handle the truth. I wish him nothing but pain in his silly travels especially if they wind up in my octagon. Clearly I have defeated this earthworm with my words – imagine what I would have done with my fire breathing fists. I urge all my beautiful and loyal fans who embraced this show for almost a decade to walk with me side-by-side as we march up the steps of justice to right this unconscionable wrong.
Remember these are my people … not yours…we will continue on together…
