You may have heard of the comments Charlie Sheen has been making on the radio about “Two and a Half Men” creator Chuck Lorre. It doesn’t look like CBS and Warner Bros. Television liked that very much. The network sent out this statement today:
“Two and a Half Men” – Statement from CBS Entertainment and Warner Bros. Television
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.
Charlie Sheen’s reaction to the statement? He sent the following 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…
While this may be a fight between Sheen and Lorre, we all know who this really hurts – all the other people working on the show! We’ll have to wait and see if they can smooth things out for next season.
