Charlie Sheen -- Morality Not My Problem

2/14/2011 11:30 AM PST BY TMZ STAFF

Charlie Sheen cannot be fired from "Two and a Half Men" for doing drugs, hiring hookers or any of his other antics ... because he doesn't have a "morals clause" in his contract, TMZ has learned.

Charlie Sheen
Sources tell TMZ ... Charlie has never had a morals clause in his contract, which would allow Warner Bros. to fire him if he engaged in improper conduct that reflected badly on the show.

Cocaine and prostitutes would probably meet the criteria for giving C.S. the boot, but sources say Charlie is telling everyone, "That's my personal life. My contract protects me. They can't fire me."

Charlie is saying he wants to go back to work next week, but we're told the show cannot fire back up that quickly.

Charlie is a decent actor. But I feel is an example of how being a famous actor is not enough. Being a good person is more valuable.

Ok!!...Of course you are Charlie. I bet if you had an average job, you'd sure get fired whether you had a moral clause contract or not.

I don't watch Two and a half men to learn morals from Charlie Sheen. The show is funny as hell and I could care less what Charlie does in his free time.

Bottom line is without Charlie they have no show.

It isn't like how he parties, his taste in women, etc has ever been a big secret. They knew what they were getting when they signed him on.

Let the man breathe. It's his life.

Just heard Serene Branson had stroke. Very sad. That explains why she was talking that way during the Grammy news report. I truly hope she gets better.

When you hire a debauched perv to play a slightly sanitized version of himself on TV, I don't think you're worried about 'morality'.

Wouldn't it seem pointless to fire Charlie Sheen from Two and a Half Men because he's a drunk who hires hookers, watches porn, and occasionally partakes in drugs? If I was Charlie, I'd just call it, oh, I don't know, research for his role.

The best thing CBS and Charlie Sheen could do is finish this season and call it the last. That way Charlie can concentrate on being sober. The worst thing he did after that whole debacle and rehab stint a few years ago was return to work in the exact same role.

Shame on you Charlie Sheen, for threatening the employment of hundreds of people. You have a responsiblity to others, and you need to "Man Up."

Well maybe Hollywood moguls should have this "morals clause" in ALL contracts, their reputation relies on those they hire to handle themselves in a professional manner outside the studios. Actors & actresses let their fame get to their heads, they feel they can do whatever they want. They don't care that their actions not only hurt their reputation but also cause shooting & filming delays, get over yourself and do your job! If you can' do that much, then get the hell out of show business so someone who does care about their craft can do it.
