Charlie Sheen was fired from Two and A Half Men. This did not come as a shock to ANYONE. Warner Brose said that his “services on ‘Two and a Half Men’ effective immediately,” were not needed. But why was he fired? Here are 5 reasons that all probably added up to unemployment time:
1) Warner Bros. says he was fired due to moral turpitude by admitting to drug use. Totally valid and a legal reason they could fire him. His struggle with drugs and alcohol is no secret. And now, he claims he is just on one drug…and it’s called “Charlie Sheen.”
2) Charlie Sheen said very harsh things to the media about his boss Chuck Lorre. He said he “violently hated” Lorre and called him a “stupid, stupid little man and a p**sy punk that I’d never want to be like”. And said in a letter to TMZ about his battle with Lorre saying “I fire back once and this contaminated little maggot can’t handle my power and can’t handle the truth. 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. I urge all my beautiful and loyal fans who embraced this show for almost a decade to walk with me side-by-side as we march up the steps of justice to right this unconscionable wrong.”
3) He wanted to sue both CBS and Warner Bros for all he could, usually a move that would not endear a employer to their employees. That makes those trips to the water cooler…well… a bit uncomfortable.
4) Charlie wanted even MORE money. Charlie Sheen was the highest paid actor on TV, bringing in $2 million dollars per episode. He then raised his price tag to $3 million per episode. And is he really worth that?
5) He is out of his mind.
