The hubbub started on Thursday (Feb. 16) while Sheen was talking with TMZ about a cease and desist letter he received from Warner Bros. Turns out they weren’t fond of him using his old “Men” promo photos to help sell his new series “Anger Management.”
Sheen then devolved into personal attacks saying, “I’m tired of lying.
I’m tired of pretending the show doesn’t suck. I’m tired of pretending
Ashton doesn’t suck. I’m tired of pretending like they’re not completely
But following a few days of deep contemplation (or perhaps his publicist haranguing him), Sheen backtracked…sort of.
“Dear Ashton,” he writes
on Twitter. “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.”
The letter is then signed, “The ‘late’ Charlie Harper,” Sheen’s former character on “Two and a Half Men.”
Could this be the dawn of a kinder, gentler Charlie Sheen?
