Charlie Sheen Demands Apology from Jewish Group

3/1/2011 1:20 PM PST BY TMZ STAFF

Charlie Sheen claims he doesn't hate Chuck Lorre because of his "Jewishness" ... he hates him for other reasons ... and now Sheen is lashing out at a Jewish org. for insinuating he's an anti-Semite.

Sheen is still FURIOUS with the Anti-Defamation League for saying the actor exhibited "borderline anti-Semitism" when he referred to the "Two and a Half Men" creator by his Hebrew name Chaim Levine.

Now, Sheen's lawyer -- legal pitbull Marty Singer -- has fired off a letter to the ADL demanding a retraction  ... because Sheen's only intention was to "address the man rather than his television persona."

In the letter, Singer points out that Chuck has referred to himself by the name Chaim on a vanity card back in February ... a vanity card in which Charlie claims Chuck writes about "a lifetime of distancing himself from Judaism."

In fact, Team Charlie insinuates the ADL should denounce Lorre for acknowledging his "disdain for the Jewish religion."

Calls to the ADL have not been returned.

Finally. Someone with a sound voice helping Charlie out. Charlie can be a loose cannon at times, okay a lot of the times, but they made the contract with him knowing that.

Charlie is not anti-Jew. The ADL is dead wrong on this. There was nothing wrong with what he said. Nothing at all.

If people want to nail him, then nail him on something real, not something absurd like claiming he is anti-jew because of what he said.

This is awesome!! So many of these organizations toss around these accusations without any repercussions. This case more so than most, they were out of line.

I never watch you Charlie, but you are now my hero! A shakedown is needed indeed! You are only calling a spade a spade. I don't agree with how you live, but I admire your integrity. Rock on Sheen!

Charlie is such a narcassist. It's everyone else's fault and they're out to get poor Charlie. I liked him better when he was wasted.

TMZ is no better than the people who produced the 'Bum Fights' videos - they both take advantage of troubled people for amusement and to make money. We don't need to hear every thought that comes from Sheen's obviously disturbed mouth.

I guess it's not surprising to see there are other charlie-like-minded bogots out there. Just read the other posts.
