Charlie Sheen has issued an apology to his Two and a Half Men replacement Ashton Kutcher in the form of an open letter on his website.
Tiger-blood Charlie Shee, apologising? Is the world coming to an end?
The letter reads “Dear Ashton- My bad. I was disrespectful to a man doing his best. I got excited and threw you into a crossfire. The rest of my statement I stand behind. You, however, deserve better. Safety in your travels good sir.” and was signed “the late Charlie Harper”, the name of the character Sheen played on the show before he was fired by the producers.
This comes four days after Sheen launched into a tirade against his old show saying “I’m tired of lying. I’m tired of pretending like the show doesn’t suck, I’m tired of pretending Ashton doesn’t suck.. When you take away the anchor from your show, which they stupidly did, you go adrift.”
Sheen had apparently been sent a cease and desist letter from Warner Bros. after he had been using old publicity images from Two and a Half Men to promote his new show “Anger Management”. He then called in to TMZ Live to speak on the matter and quickly took advantage of the discussion to launch the slew of verbal attacks which were described by Two and a Half Men creator, Chuck Lorre, as “unthinkable”. Sheen Later clarified that he wasn’t attacking Kutcher, saying “I just feel bad for him. He’s saddled with such bad writing.”
Sheen’s new show “Anger Management” is set to begin filming on March 22 2012 and is reported to be loosely based on the 2003 film starring Jack Nicholson and Adam Sandler.
