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.

What a sick bumbling idiot. He just showed the world who he really is and is very proud of it. I do not think I have heard anything from him that makes any sense at all. He is not ashamed of himself and keep attacking other people who could not respond to his allegations.

Wife-beater, insubordinate employee, an absentee father, drugging and boozing all over, lying through his teeth about other people, yet he cannot take a look at himself in the mirror.

He is no spring chicken, neither, and he looks haggard recently. It is taking a toll on him already. He still thinks he is the cute little boy that people adore. He looks like his father's age at this point.

I think the media is being quite unfair to Sheen right now. His obvious jokes are taken very seriously, his awesome one-liners are taken out of context and labeled bizarre, and his choice to engage in a form of rehab that is personalized for him is derided as something less than genuine. I think the media has an interest in piling on against Sheen, calling his interviews erratic, etc., because it helps draw viewers to the interviews. However, he sounds quite rationale in his interviews – even boring sometimes – but you have to be able to tell what is hyperbole, what is a joke and what's just not that big a deal. I highly doubt most people have watched or listened to the interviews in their entirety. Instead, people are taking their cues from the media headlines with biased judgments that, again, are mostly intended to draw viewership.

I don't support Sheen's drug use – I'm glad he's testing clean and certainly hope that continues – but I hope he's able to gain some benefit from this media blitz, because his ability to capture the media's attention is the only weapon he really has. Groveling would only make things worse... let's be clear: he was not fired for drugs and sex, he was fired because he ranted against his boss – who had been making fun of him publicly for years. While I don't sympathize with many of Sheen's choices, I do sympathize with that.

Good luck on sobriety and employment, Charlie. Not everyone misunderstands you.

Stop the nonsense. Charlie AKA Carlos, you DID insult him. Your rants are sickening. You were once a good actor, not great, but good. You have peaked and now sliding down the hill pretty fast. CBS, if you think this man deserves another chance, you're crazier than he and ABC, if you sign him on, you're asking for trouble. What does AA call it? Enabling?

I wonder if he has looked in the mirror at himself...he looks like sh*t. He needs to shut up and just fade away. He is done! I don't believe he'll do anything else, who would want him. He is just nasty.

Mano-a-mano fight, nothing anti-semitic about it. The irony is that Lorre changed his name because he was ashamed of his Jewishness. Pathetic.

Has children's services been to Charlie Sheens house? The pedophile-junkie-manic depressive is having underage prostitutes mind his children. And he thinks this is a joke. Where is his ex wife, back in rehab. California have you sunk into the ocean. The children (I dont mean the ho's) are not safe in that house.

The hate industries use people as raw material. Be yourself, don't buy into the hate identity, it eats your body.

Sucks that you get your identity by hating! Some people make big money off manufacturing your hate, and it's not you, and it's not Jews!
