Charlie Sheen: I'm Not an Anti-Semite

2/25/2011 1:35 PM PST BY TMZ STAFF

Charlie Sheen tells TMZ ... the reports describing him as an anti-Semite are B.S.

Charlie Sheen Chuck Lorre

While Charlie spilled his guts to TMZ yesterday about his hatred for Chuck Lorre, he referred to the "Two and a Half Men" creator as Chaim Levine -- the Hebrew translation of CL's birth name -- which many people felt Charlie used in a mean-spirited attempt to denigrate the Jews.

Now Charlie tells TMZ ... "I was referring to Chuck by his real name, because I wanted to address the man, not the bulls**t TV persona."

FYI -- Chuck's birth name is Charles Levine ... and his Hebrew name is Chaim.

Charlie added, "So you're telling me, anytime someone calls me Carlos Estevez, I can claim they are anti-Latino?"

Do the Semites get along with anyone? Didn't these people start a couple of World Wars? Are they lining up WWIII? Why is Levine assassinating Carlos' character?

I think Charlie needs to be left alone out of the spotlight and really needs to loose everything in order to find himself. he is already losing fans, hurting family and cannot manage his own personal demons, and furthermore he needs to stop trying to be a bad ass while being in this mind frame he is in, because there are always repercussions for bad behaviors. he needs to listen to himself talk when he has a sound mind to let him her what an ******* he sounds like.

*** Charlie added, "So you're telling me, anytime someone calls me Carlos Estevez, I can claim they are anti-Latino?" ***

No, but you could conclude they're a) stupid enough to use lineage as an (unfair) argument against you, b) think ethnic names are an insult. In Charlie's case I suspect he's got other issues other than racism that are the underlying problem. It's like he's depressed about his age and is trying to prove how 'young' he can behave. The point where edgy becomes crazy. Hope he sorts it all out.

Charlie Sheen says he will show up for work despite show's suspension

Comments: 6 More Print Claiming he is completely sober, actor Charlie Sheen said today he plans to show up for work despite CBS's decision yesterday to pull the plug on the top-rated comedy "Two and a Half Men" this season.

In a text message to ABC's "Good Morning America," Sheen also said he has a Plan B and is in talks with HBO about starting his own show called "Sheen's Corner," which would be a whopping $5 million-per-episode deal.


But Sheen's weird behavior didn't end there.

In a photo from Wednesday published on the website of the London newspaper The Daily Mail, Sheen was seen with his wife, Brooke Mueller, and girlfriends Natalie Kenly, a nanny, and porn star Bree Olsen, on their way to the Bahamas.

SHEEN'S SHOW CANCELED AFTER HIS OUTBURST

MARTIN SHEEN PRAYS FOR HIS SON

Mueller and Sheen are in the midst of finalizing their divorce, but have inexplicably been seen together over the past week. But Sheen said Mueller left the vacation early and wished her "luck" in her travels -- sarcastically adding that his ex-wife is "going to need it, badly."

Sheen had a message for the other women in his life: "I have real fame, they have nothing. They have zero. They have that night. And I will forget about them as the last image of them exits my beautiful home."

On Thursday, Sheen attacked the show's producer Chuck Lorre in a bizarre letter to TMZ.com from the Bahamas, saying, "What does this say about [Lorre] after he tried to use his words to judge and attempt to degrade me.

"I gracefully ignored this folly for 177 shows ... I fire back once and this contaminated little maggot can't handle my power and can't handle the truth."

The "Two and a Half Men" star continued his rant today against Lorre -- referring to him as a "clown" and "loser" in the text messages to ABC.

The show has been in hiatus since last month when Sheen entered rehab following a 36-hour bender with booze, drugs and porn stars.

In a series of interviews, Sheen also called Lorre "a stupid, stupid little man and a p---y punk that I'd never want to be like."

Sheen also referred to Lorre as a "turd."

The production halt leaves CBS eight episodes shy of the 24 half-hours it had expected to air as the cornerstone of its Monday night comedy lineup. And it makes the network and Warner, which reaps hundreds of millions from the show in syndication, the potential go-betweens between Sheen and Lorre.

Following Sheen's rants, CBS Entertainment released a statement that read: "Based on the totality of Charlie Sheen's statements, conduct and condition, CBS and Warner Brothers Television have decided to discontinue production of 'Two and a Half Men' for the remainder of the season."

In an interview Wednesday, his father, Martin Sheen compared his son's fight against addiction to that of a cancer patient.

"The disease of addiction is a form of cancer," Martin Sheen told Sky News in London. "You have to have an equal measure of concern and love and lift them up, so that's what we do for him."

CBS and Warner had tolerated Sheen's recent misadventures, including wild partying and three hospitalizations in three months.

The incidents are part of a checkered life that included his $50,000-plus tab as a client of "Hollywood Madam" Heidi Fleiss' prostitution ring, a near-fatal cocaine overdose in 1998, and conflict-filled marriages.

I 100% agree with William.

There is so much insanity with Charlie Sheen I can't believe TMZ is making a bi deal from a non-issue. Since when does calling someone by their birth name suggest their are racist undertones? GTFO!

Really, if "Chuck" felt the need to change his name, wouldn't that make him a self-hating Jew.

I wonder what would happen if Simone and Charles and Max played "Jew or Not a Jew" or is that game only meant for people 'in the tribe'?

Charlie, last night I made the statement in my post that your " Major League " dreams would not come to fruition... looks like they're already preparing to pull you out of the game. Now, it certainly appears that you're assuming a deal with HBO, that they're saying just isn't so. Guess what... you're losing Charlie... your TV show, " League " and your pipe dream " Sheen's Corner ". The delusional man's world is falling apart, just like sane folks understand it will. Charlie... you didn't do a very good job of healing yourself. Guess you're not really God after all. Dude... you've disrespected your many blessings for all of these years.... now comes payback time. Ill-gotten gains my friend... you've been playing on the wrong team!!! I'm usually not a vindictive person but Charlie... you're such a p r i c k!!!

For the record, there's no such thing as a white Semitic Jew. They're all Caucasian racist elitist converts. The word Semite refers to original Mizrahi Jews that the white man stole the religion from just like the English stole this continent from the Indians. The real Hebrews are Arabs biological brothers. The fake ones are the modern stereotype. Religion is a faith and not a race, blood or ethnicity. I am a Jew and I approve this message. You may now return to TMZ celeb witch hunting.

Oh no NOT again!    

I love the photo of Charlie with the 'L'! Yep, he is right now.

Fortunately Charlie is now a 'poster child' as to why crack is whack!

Drug induced psychosis, at minimum. Off the street drugs and on to the couch for true diagnosis and help.

Self medicating isn't a good thing, as we see here. It doesn't work!

I agree with you, Janet.

Enought about the non-existent Charlie anti-semetic crap, and more about the outright bigotted comments against Christians and Catholics.

I think you're catching on.
