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 showâs bosses, claiming he has been ready to work for weeks.
Calling in to a US radio show, Sheen fumed âLast I checked… Iâve 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 youâve been warned, dude. Bring it.â?
âMost of the time, and this includes naps, Iâm an F18 bro… Thereâs 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, âI gracefully ignored this folly for 177 shows… I fire back once and this contaminated little maggot canât handle my power and canât 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 â imagine what I would have done with my fire-breathing fists.â?
Hang on, Charlie Sheen has fire-breathing fists? Forget the rant, now thatâs a real story…
