In the wake of reports that Men creator Chuck Lorre has decided to keep the sitcom going sans Sheen, the troubled actor launched his nastiest attack yet against his former boss.
In a letter sent to TMZ titled Good Luck Chuck, Sheen wrote, “MY fans may tune in for a minute, but at the end of the day, no one cares about your feeble show without me. Shame on you. Not even a phone call to the man that put you on the map. The man that put 500 million dollars in your pockets. You were on your way out of Warner Bros. with a buy out and a cup of cold coffee in your shaky and clammy hands. And then I walked into your office. And you created a show BASED ON MY AWESOME LIFE. I busted my ass for 8 years to support your vision. Your dream. In turn, it is my nightmare. You sad silly fool. You a-hole p—y loser. Put on the gloves you low rent, nut-less sociopath; I’ll beat your chicken s–t soul in a court room into a state of gratitude. A state of surrender.”
Sheen goes on to call Lorre, “A narcissist. A coward. A loser. [And] a spineless rat,” and points to Men’s recent repeat ratings as an indication of what’s to come if the show goes on without him. “I’m out here with my fans every night. The message is crystal clear; NO CHARLIE SHEEN. NO SHOW. And that’s exactly what it will be for you and your desperate vanity cards, every Monday night, a no-show. The ratings right now are not a fluke. It’s a big fat mess.A 2.0 demo? That sucks. Almost as bad as you. You’ve been warned. Reap the whirl-wind you cockroach, reap it.”
