CBS Dumps Sheen, “Two and a Half Men”
CBS has had enough of Charlie Sheen‘s antics. The network and Warner Bros. Television abruptly cancelled the hit sitcom “Two and a Half Men” on Thursday following Sheen’s rant in a radio show.
“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. Television said in a statement.
On Thursday morning, Sheen went on air during the “Alex Jones Show” to blast “Two and a Half Men” producer Chuck Lorre, among other targets. In his rant, Sheen called Lorre a “clown” and suggested that the writer known for being behind some of the biggest television shows past and present was an ingrate.
“There’s something this side of deplorable that a certain Chaim Levine — yeah, that’s Chuck’s real name — mistook this rock star for his own selfish exit strategy, bro,” Sheen said. “Last I checked, Chaim, I spent close to the last decade effortlessly and magically converting your tin cans into pure gold. And the gratitude I get is this charlatan chose not to do his job, which is to write.”
