CBS and Warner Brothers have made the decision to cancel their hit comedy series, “Two and a Half Men”, for the rest of the season. This happened after the show’s lead actor, Charlie Sheen, made an outburst in a particular radio show. After the announcement of the producers, the troubled actor immediately launched another tirade.
“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,” the producers said in a statement.
Sheen was briefly hospitalized last month after non-stop partying that involved booze, drugs, prostitutes and porn stars. News broke out that he checked into a rehab facility after he was released from hospital where he was rushed due to “severe abdominal pains” caused by, again, partying for days at his Los Angeles home where five women and booze played the lead roles.
The situation called for the suspension of production on “Two and a Half Men” in which Sheen plays the main character. After CBS and Warner’s announcement, the actor released an open letter published by TMZ. In his statement, he attacked Lorre, calling him a “contaminated little maggot.”
“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.”
