CBS and Warner Bros. are halting production of the network's hit sitcom Two and a Half Men following an outburst by series star Charlie Sheen on live radio Thursday.
"Based on the totality of Charlie Sheen's statements, conduct and condition, CBS and Warner Bros. Television have decided to discontinue production of Two and a Half Men for the remainder of the season," CBS said in a statement late Thursday.
The Website TMZ.com posted audio of Sheen calling into "The Alex Jones Show" on Thursday afternoon, in which he slammed Men creator Chuck Lorre, calling him a "clown," as well as using anti-Semitic slurs.
Sheen claimed throughout the radio rant that he is completely clean.
CBS and WB had suspended production of the show in late January so that Sheen could enter rehab. Production on four additional episodes was scheduled to resume Feb. 28.
Not cool, Charlie. You been bad mouthing on the Alex Jones Show and the FCC doesn't like it. You need to clean up your act. Plus when you get out of rehab, your private real estate will destroyed by an angry mob who used work on the show, TP'ing your trees, bushes and fence, smashing your car and burning down your house. Most of all, they'll be writing bad stuff and saying bad stuff about you on Facebook, YouTube, Blogger, and forums, and you'll be receiving nasty emails and hate letters for bad mouthing.
Like in the song, you just can't the "F-word".
This is now the time for Charlie to ask Jesus into his heart. I pray for his soul to be saved. Amen.
