Two And A Half Men Cancelled After Sheen Rant

Sitcom Two and a Half Men has been cancelled after star Charlie Sheen launched a rant against the show’s creator Chuck Lorre in a live radio broadcast.

Network CBS had suspended filming on the current series of the sitcom at the end of January to allow Sheen to undergo rehab for his well-documented substance abuse issues. This caused him to slam Lorre and the show’s bosses, claiming he has been ready to work for weeks.

Calling in to a US radio show, Sheen fumed “Last I checked… I’ve spent, I think, 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… Well you’ve been warned, dude. Bring it.â€?

“Most of the time, and this includes naps, I’m an F18 bro… There’s a new sheriff in town and he has an army of assassins.â€?

The actor later gave an open letter to gossip website TMZ, continuing his attack by saying, “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.â€?

Hang on, Charlie Sheen has fire-breathing fists? Forget the rant, now that’s a real story…
