'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."

Mr. Lorre: You have a gold mine with your other cast members -- namely JON CRYER, Berta character, Holland Taylor, Angus Jones, Rose and Judith -- don't put all your eggs in one basket with loser Sheen! I would love to see a spin off with Jon Cryer -- that guy is soooooooo under-rated! I watch that show just because of him! Sheen does not deserve all this kid glove treatment -- let 'em walk!

Nice to see someone on that show speak out in a public way about Charlie Sheen. Refreshing, to say the least, that someone who profits from the show isn't afraid to let the public know that what Charlie is doing is wrong and destructive to everyone around him. I am tired of hearing the pc version from his co-stars, what wimps.

Sounds like Lorre's given up. At first I was thinking it's terribly insensitive, but that lasted about a nanosecond and I find it wittily hilarious. Eff Charlie for screwing up the entire show and all the peoples' lives who depend on it. I no longer have any sympathy for him as I once did. Get your **** together or just die already since you're so determined to do anyway. Tired of reading about this loser who threw so much away.

I watched and didn't even see the "message". I guess I had already walked away. I will say this, as someone that has followed the show for years it has now become same ol' same ol'. Nothing but booze, degrating women.... I think it's time to turn out the lights for this show. I'll continue to watch re-runs (which I already prefer)but the new ones are not even funny. Sorry "Men" time to take your final bow.

I am Team Charlie!
He has never pretended to be anything other than a hard partying, Ho mongering cad. Chuck and CBS you developed a sitcom about a hard partying, Ho Mongering cad and picked him as the star. It is what it is...Two and because of Charlie, you and CBS have laughed all the way to the bank.

Love the show. Love Lorre's comments. Love Charlie, too, but hate that he gleefully allows himself to be totally out of control. I will truly be sad when (not if) we hear of Charlie's death. What a pure waste of talent that will be.

Lorre, what's your fascination with ****ting? The toilet humor in 2Half Men and now BBT is just sad and ridiculous. Please stop

I LOVE this---way to go Chuck Lorre!! I hope more people stand up to Charlie, and all that he represents, which is everything wrong. On top of all the obvious, Charlie is an arrogant bully who won't be around much longer if he doesn't face the truth about his addictions. Anyway, thanks Chuck Lorre!!!! The silent majority finally got to be heard on this sad situation.

I'm amazed at the amount of people on this forum who give kudos to the way Charlie Sheen is living his life. I can only imagine that these people are still emotionally very young. A real adult doesn't live that kind of life. Especially when he has 4 young children. He's wasting his life and pushing that life to the limit. The body can only take so much. Charlie is not some 20-something young man anymore. Time for him to dial it back.

I applaud Chuck Lorre for his comment. He's living the life of a true adult. He's responsible for himself and Charlie hasn't been and doesn't seem to want to be bothered being that responsible adult.

Those of you who think that Chuck Lorre should be bowing down to Charlie Sheen are truly delusional. It should be the other way around. Lorre made Charlie a boatload of money and gave him a career. NOT the other way around. Lorre could walk away from Charlie at any time and he'd be fine. Charlie, not so much.

Breaking News: Nicole Richie trying to antagonize Charlie Sheen. Tells Charlie to stop running with the night, dancing on the ceiling.

CHuck should comment like a real man, in an interview instead of these weird messages. The entire success of his series is based on Charlies image, in and outside the show.
And Chuck: being a health freak does nog make you any more appealing.... only slightly boring and over selfcouncious. Live a little...
What Charlie does with his life, his money and his health (how selfdestructing this may be) is his problem, not Chuck's.
