The downward spiral of Charlie Sheen continues in front of our very eyes. Yesterday, Sheen was fired by CBS and Warner Bros. from his sitcom "Two and a Half Men". Instead of being upset privately he of course went on to rant publicly.
Right after he was given the boot Sheen climbed to the top of the Live Nation office building in Beverly Hills, CA, waved a machete and drank a bottle of "tiger blood" while a crowd cheered him on.
When asked about getting fired, Sheen used the words of Martin Luther King Jr. saying, "Free at last, free at last!"
Once he came back down to the ground Sheen spoke with Access Hollywood's Billy Bush and told them that Warner Bros. never called him to say he was fired.
"I got a text or something," he said. "Here's another thing - these guys are such yellow cockroaches that they didn't even have the decency to call me. I put 5 billion in their cheap suit pockets and another half a bil' in what's-his-cheese's pockets and this is the respect I get? It's just deplorable and they should be ashamed of themselves!"
Sheen told Bush that the firing was because his bosses don't understand him.
"Whatever. I guess if you can't process a guy, or realize his value, you must terminate him," Sheen told Bush. "That's real high-brow thinking, really evolved thinking. I don't know. It is what it is. I'm more worried about my children [Bob and Max] right now than any of this nonsense, you know."
But the rant didn't stop there. Throughout the day Sheen began to unravel more and more. Last night he posted another video on Ustream and he looks awful! The video didn't mention the firing it was actually a telephone conversation that he recorded with his "Tweet master" Bob Maron.
While he's having his mental breakdown Maron says "life's loving you". Sheen responds by saying, "What's not to love, it's my life. WINNING!" Clearly they are both in denial.
Sheen goes on to mention how he plans to reach out to the founder of Amazon to sell his book, "Apocalypse Me the Jaws of Life." Charlie says that he wants to sell his book through Amazon and Kindle to "save a bunch of trees. They give me oxygen. We love trees. Let's keep as many as we can and marry a tree, marriage for me didn't work so I am just going to marry a tree."
Sheen definitely appears to be on something and was even bending down to take a swig of a "secret elixir". Sheen says that he won't name the label since he doesn't get paid for it.
Is this the end of Sheen? Will you watch the show without him?
