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.

This lawyer is an idiot. He goes with Charlie's lunacy. What has the ADL got to do with Chuck's distancing himself from Judaism? Charlie is just another bumbling idiotic fool and he will talk about anything in the world except for his drug dependency.

His drug and sex addiction is not a topic he would talk about because the a--h--- is in the grandest denial.

He should have stayed obscure but how can a violent women basher stay in denial?

He will talk about all the people's troubles but would not address his own disease. Syphilis, anyone?

Charlie is sick and his is a classic case of addition. Everyone else is to blame for his problems. As a stockholder in CBS I will be damned if he is allowed back on my air. He is nothing but a drunk, lush and an idiot who has more problems then he will ever admit. IF CBS PUTS HIM BACK ON I WILL BE AT THE NEXT STOCKHOLDERS MEETING RAISING HELL. HE ISN'T WORTH THAT MUCH AND MY AND OTHER STOCKHOLDERS INTEGRITY CAN'T BE BOUGHT.

The ADL should not be intimidated . Sheen stated that after eight years of being whaled on by Lorre he deserved to throw a few shots back. What other reason would calling someone by their birth name be an insult. Of, course he could just want everyone to start going by theirs , Get back on your meds Charlie Estevez !

Is there anything Charlie Sheen likes other than himself? His rantings are so ridiculous. He believes his is the only correct version of anything and everything! Stop giving him a platform to air his manic views.

That was a very shrewd move. Mr. Singer has definitely nipped that crap in the bud! It's entirely too easy for people with very negative agendas to take things completely out of proportion these days.

Oh boy, and the craziness continues.

Charlie, instead of your lawyer indiscrimnately suing people, he should be urging you to do what I'm telling you to do: STFU! STFU! STFU! STFU!

It really should clue you in when Mel Gibson and Sean Penn are the friends who come out to defend you. You know the saying, "with friends like this, who needs enemies..."

Also, I'm wondering if Charlie inherited his bipolar disorder from his Uncle Joe, another complete whack job who is so so full of manic egotistical delusion that he thinks he can just walk into Charlie's show/character whenever Charlie is on "hiatus." Does this behavior sound familiar to anyone else?

I am so sick the the jews and thier freakin pity party. We are not Nazi's and never were so why are we feeling like we owe them anything. Jews are richest people on earth, man I feel sorry for u, they own 99% of the special interest groups in this country and in my opinion are greedy and the root of a most major financial issues in our country.

Why not change his name to Charlie SHEENIE?
Then Levine..I meant LORRE, can refer to Charlie as such..curse solved.
Definition:
