'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."

Poor little Chucky Levine from the Bronx should shut his piehole and keep writing. 2HM is the #1 rated show, a huge cash cow that WB/CBS is milking and nobody wants to get into contract litigation. Charlie just wants to keep his paychecks current - "Hey, I'm here ready to work according to our agreement, where is everybody?"

Chuck Lorre is so funny for answering Charlie and his antics. Didn't he hire CS to play himself? Isn't Chuck Lorre getting what he paid for? And if CS is so bad, why then are you, Lorre, putting out that garbage that essentially glamorizes CS's real life lifestyle? #nosenseincryingnow

Never liked the show, but was channel surfing last night and watched a few minutes or that guy from Pretty in Pink having a conversation with a talking toaster.

My gosh, how does anyone watch that crap is beyond me.

Do not (f)uck with the Masheen or we will shut you down. Charlie, Men At Work is my (s)hit dawg! Any chance I can get a check made out to cash? I'm an amazing life coach when I'm sober?..

As a recovering addict myself who managed to be rescued before losing everything including my life, Charlie is doomed for death...and, I would predict he will be dead within the next 12 months if he doesn't make some extreme lifestyle changes. His addiction is not because of his money or his fame, it's because he suffers from a disease...perhaps his money allows him more expensive bad habits and provides the arrogant bastard with a means for his arrogance, but his addiciton is genetic and he's in denial...his half assed attempt at in home rehab is denial...Mr. Lorre has no responsibility to him...Mr. Lorre has a responsibility to the other actors and staff...he also has a responsibility to his audience...as a creator of a show that is watched by millions of viewers (and, I'm sure thousands of those who will follow Charlie to his death from the antics of his character)...Mr. Lorre does have some responsibility to educate the public about addiction and the dire consequences of this disease...what it does to the addict and what it does to all of those around the addict...maybe, Mr. Lorre, it's time to take the show in a different direction...rehabiliation and the people in the recovery stage are funny too...take the character away from the booze...show the process of him getting healthy in the process...I'm sure you can come up with a lot of funny things to keep the show rolling and make us middle aged men still want to live vicariously through his character...

But, all of that would require Charlie to get sober...which, he won't do...he's got too many enablers around him and he's a spoiled little piece of **** that his daddy found on the bottom of his shoe 40 some years ago...that, coupled with the disease makes him a walking dead man!

what's with these personalized statements at the end of each show? If he wants to comment on Charlie's situation, he should give a comment or an interview to the press. Those statements at the end of each show are in-print. They won't just disappear, and they make the show seem dated. I don't think Chuck Lorie has the right idea to do that.

Chuck's 10 years older than charlie but he has a right to be pissed because charlie is doing alot of damage to himself, the body can't take that type of abuse much longer.

^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^


He not only has the right, he has the ability.

The best way for Charlie to stop people from saying negative things about him is to either stop what he's doing, or keep it on the down low.

People who air their dirty laundry in public usually get a public reaction.

Save that money, Charles. No producer is going to hire you once you've effectively burned the bridge that leads to the golden goose.

I've never met Chuck Lorre but I know I'd like him if I did. Too bad there aren't more people like him in Hollywood.
