Charlie Harper is no more.
His portrayer, Charlie Sheen was fired Monday from the hit sitcom Two and a Half Men by Warner Bros. Television. The action was taken after “careful consideration” and is effective immediately, the studio said in a statement. No decision has been made on the show’s future without its star, said Paul McGuire, a Warner spokesman.
It had to happen.
Sooner or later, our boy Charlie was going to cross a line during one of his lightning-fast rants and some douchebag in a suit was going to get so pissed off they were going to push him back over the line.
In this case, it was the unemployment line. Now Charlie Sheen, who claims the general public can’t process his “greatness”, due to the tiger blood coursing through his veins, has more in common with the man on the street than he will ever admit.
Of course the man on the street doesn’t live with two “goddesses”, an entourage and have his own web show where he literally rants about anything he feels like.
In a text message to The Associated Press, Sheen responded, with the F-word and “They lose,” followed by the word “Trolls”, a word Sheen loves to use almost as much as “Winning!” Asked if he planned to sue, Sheen responded, “Big.” As for his next move, Sheen texted, “A big one.”
I think as far as the most of the world is concerned Charlie, you are a big one.
