CBS Responds to Charlie Sheen, Suspends Shooting on Two and a Half Men

by at . Comments

Two and a Half Men was scheduled to resume shooting on Monday. Then, Charlie Sheen opened his ridiculous mouth.

First, he went on a radio show and said all THIS. Then, he spoke to TMZ and challenged sitcom creator Chuck Lorre to a fight, saying:

"I violently hate Chaim Levine [Chuck Lorre].  He's a stupid, stupid little man and a p**sy punk that I'd never want to be like."

Such a Winner

Sheen continued: "That piece of s**t [Lorre] took money out of my pocket, my family's pocket, and, most importantly, my second family - my crew's pocket... you can tell him [Lorre] one thing. I own him."

In response, CBS and Warner Bros. have issued the following 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."

UPDATE: Naturally, Sheen has now fired back at Lorre. He's released this letter to TMZ:

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.

The question must be asked, however: does Sheen have any fans remaining? You tell us!

Typical selfish addict BS: Running his mouth and not caring who he takes down with him. I wonder how many jobs he's cost the crew with his behavior and his mouth, which has finally trashed the entire show for good. You did this, Charlie,sure I still am a fan of your acting, if not your ridiculous, out-of-control behavior, @$$hole.

Wow that’s a little scary! He is a complete mess. If he really cared about his crew he wouldn’t have opened his big mouth and caused them to lose their jobs. I don’t care if they have a beef, he shouldn’t go public with it and his words were totally inappropriate. Now how is he going to pay for all his drugs and prostitutes?

Charlie is a loser. He takes down everyone around him. He is his dad's son. Martin finally started acting like a good person in his 50s. Charlie's got a few years to go. I predict he will self-destruct. He is headed in that direction. Too bad, it was a really funny show and now lots of people are without jobs because of Charlie's behavior. He's an idiot to not see what he had.

Thank you, Charlie for forcing CBS' hand in this matter. They were too giddy over the money you brought them to acknowledge your issues. You couldn't keep your mouth shut, Carlos Estevez and now there is no show! Chuck Lorre is a genious.

Here's some advise for charlie,why don't u take all those millions uve made off the show that the man u are so disrespecting created,and make ur own show,hire lensey lowhan to be costar or star u both are equaly talented at the drinkin and druggin thing,u can call it jackasses the stupid years,first episode you meet lenseyat a cocaine party she drive you home drunk,u wake up in the next morning to find she has left taking ur exspensive watch with he,when u find her she exsplanes that she didn't still the watch u loaned it to her and she returns the watch and u and her celebrate by having sex and doing a line and a shot of rum.lmao

Charlie Sheen has hurt more than himself. If you look on IMBD, you'll see some of his prior offenses, including and not limited to shooting his then fiancee Kelly Preston (now married to John Travolta.) The show isn't about his real life. The show is a comedy about a functioning but self-destructive alcoholic with impulse control. Sheen's life is no comedy. As to those who say that Chuck Lorre in essence used him - that's called hiring someone to do a job. All our employers profit from our efforts. Do you think Sheen could just go out and act on the streets and get money? It takes someone to put the package together.
