'Men' Creator HITS BACK At Charlie Sheen

2/15/2011 1:42 PM PST BY TMZ STAFF

"Two and a Half Men" creator Chuck Lorre has fired back at Charlie Sheen -- making light of the actor's history with drugs, booze and porn stars during last night's show ... and then stating, "If Charlie Sheen outlives me, I’m gonna be really pissed.”

Lorre posted a message in a 2-second slate that ran at the end of last night's "Men" episode -- here's the message in it's entirety:

It's not the first time Lorre has used the slate to weigh in on the Charlie situation -- a few weeks ago, he ran a message that read:

 "Do not attempt to replicate what you saw in tonight's episode of Two and a Half Men ... Please keep in mind that we employ a highly-paid Hollywood professional who has years of experience with putting his life at risk. And sadly no, I'm not talking about our stunt man."

Man, I hate people like Chuck Lorre, who for some reason act all high and mighty and judge someone elses private life. Any idiot can do that. Lorre,saying that he doesn't DO drugs, drink etc;, doesn't mean he never has. I've never done drugs or drink so should I judge him if he did? No, because it is NOT my life. His relationship with Sheen is a professional one and that's all he should be concerned about.If the guy's showing up and doing his job (apparently well) then what is it Lorre's business and why is he trying to throw the guy under the bus. I bet if you gave EVERYONE on the set (hell, any set) a drug test right now the majority would test positive. Is that our business no. Charlie only has to answer to Charlie (and perhaps family members that might be concerned) not us or Lorre.

Charlie is such a jerk. He deserved to have far worse things said about him.

I can't believe people still support Charlie, saying "He's just having a good time, he does his job blah blah blah" and "That guy is uptight and jealous". Here's the bottom line: The show sucks, Charlie has serial killer eyes, and all the attention it's garnered is undeserved, since it sucks so bad. Charlie disgusts me, that he's so open to having sex with whores, but at the same time he doesn't hide it like I'm sure many, many other big stars do. I think the show should just die and he should take his money and be a daddy... not sugar either!

Charlie needs to take a good long look in the mirror...he's aged at least 20 years...he looks like a really old man!!!

It's over. Stick a fork in the show, it's done.

No ways those words are posted by the boss and it's not over. The money folks and especially the insurance folks must have said "no more" to Lorre.

And Sheen just makes their decisions easier by "in home" rehab and comments about taking crack might be tolerable.

Sheen should meet up with Tiger. They have the same suicidal taste in women.

it's sickening. the show was great - but now? did you see him last night? he looks like a bag of s**t. either ace him off the show - by marrying rose and moving to england and have alan take the show over - he's funny and enjoyable as is the rest of the crew. Charlie is just ugly, and his role is boring. it's unfortunate that the rest of the actors have to suffer. over paid - all of them? hell yes, but 4 shows being cancelled at angus's salary of $200k - that's almost a mil. i'd be extremely pissed!

sounds like he's jealous about someone getting better paid, neither is good, and the whole thing is childish

That is pretty damn funny, but c'mon. When it's 'yer time, it's your time.

My great, great grandpa smoked a cigar nearly ever day. Started his day with a shot of wild turkey and ended his night with four more. Ate steak 'n eggs nearly every day of his life. Never went to the doctors. Never had a chest x-ray...

and lived to be 93.

Have a friend whose wife died in an accident 20 years ago and he regularly drinks a half a bottle of booze a day. Had a liver profile done. Perfect!

Some people can easily handle a lifestyle that would kill other folks. 'Ya got it or you don't.

I don't see what y'all are upset about. It's clearly the WORST show on TV. It's just not funny.

I'm a 2.5 Men fan & I always read Chuck's vanity cards (on Big Bang Theory as well). Last nights was funny, however, my wife & I agreed that Chuck sealed his fate. . . he will not out live Sheen in real life or memory. See how many people know who Chuck Lorre is compared to Charlie Sheen in 50 years.

charlie sheen needs to die an ugly death and leave us in peace. and to those that keep supporting him in his asinine, drugged out, law-breaking ways, should die with him. just end this!

He enables Charlie, profits from him, and then slams him? And, sorry, but if Mr. Lorre is such a bastion of healthy, moderate lifestyle, where did he get all his ideas for this show?

While I really wish Charlie Sheen all the best, he's been living his life in the sh*tter for decades." Says "Canadasux"

The funny thing is, he seems content. It's his critics that come off as seeming to have sh*tty lives. I mean how pathetic does your own life have to be to immerse yourself in someone else's life, subverting the way they want to live, under the pretense of "helping" them, when again, they are seemingly happier than the person offering to "help"? Did it ever occur to you people that not everyone lives boring, mundane lives?

He goes to work; he does his job well; his choices, contrary to claims otherwise, do not affect others. The meddling of others into Sheen's affairs, however, has affected other people's lives. It's just that people like Lorrie, and the majority of losers who post here, are too sanctimonious and full of themselves to realize that you people are more a detriment to the big picture of society than Charlie Sheen or anything he's doing.

You people need to get over yourselves and stop blaming people you are jealous of for you having a pathetic life that nobody envies. While you come to TMZ to wallow in your misery, Charlie is counting his money and having fun.

Best posts of the day. They interfere with Charlie's private life and push him into rehab when he wants to continue filming and then turn around and complain about him.
What Charlie does with his own time is no one's business!! If my boss tried to tell me how to spend my weekends I'd tell him where to go in a hurry. This guy needs to stop complaining about his boring life and stay out of Charlies!!
