Charlie Sheen’s publicist, Stan Rosenfield, has quit saying he can no longer work with the troubled Two and a Half Men star after a serious of outbursts from Sheen saw the hit show cancelled. To add to his growing list of anti-PR stunts, Sheen has now appeared on ABC News saying he is “on a drug called Charlie Sheen.”
“I have worked with Charlie Sheen for a long time and I care about him very much,” Rosenfield said, according to the New York Daily News.
“However, at this time, I’m unable to work effectively as his publicist and have respectfully resigned.”
Sheen was quick to have his say, however, telling Rosenfield he was “fired”.
“P—-. He’s not allowed to quit, so you’re fired,” Sheen told TMZ.
In recent weeks, Sheen has launched several vicious rants against the creator of Two and a Half Men, Chuck Lorre, prompting CBS network producers to axe the programme for the remainder of its current season.
However Sheen has refused to let the issue die, continuing to spout off in a series of bitter (but amusing) interviews.
In an interview with CNN’s Piers Morgan, Sheen accused Two and a Half Men’s writers of using his own personal issues as inspiration for the show.
“I think that they in some way think they have some magic literary influence over me by perhaps writing things and going, ‘Oh my God, look how powerful we are, now he’s doing it!’
“No, moron, the reason the show was created was ‘cos the lifestyle I had, you guys based it on it. I gave you so much of your fodder already,” Sheen declared.
Sheen did, however, reveal that he was sorry for his comments about Lorre, which have been labelled anti-Semitic.
“I should have thought about it. Stupid, stupid move,” Sheen told Morgan.
Before you wipe the sweat from your brow, however, any good Sheen did with his apology to Lorre was eclipsed by a rant on ABC on Monday.
“I am on a drug. It’s called ‘Charlie Sheen’. It’s not available because if you try it once, you will die. Your face will melt off, and your children will weep over your exploded body,” Sheen said.
Er, might give that one a miss thanks!
