Charlie Sheen

Bombed in Detroit

4/3/2011 10:50 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Charlie Sheen got heavily booed and people walked out of his show in Detroit tonight.

According to multiple people inside the Fox Theatre ... the majority of the audience heckled not only Charlie, but his buddy Simon Rex, who came out and started rapping.

We're told Charlie started the show with a Q&A session -- answering audience questions about everything from fave porn stars to crack cocaine (see the crack joke here). Then Charlie played clips from a network interview he did and ripped it apart.

At one point, Sheen tried to deflect the angry crowd by pointing out that he had his own app ... and they didn't (see video above).

That went on for about 30 minutes ... and the crowd was initially cheering for Charlie. He even sent out a twitpic of the enthusiastic audience.

But then the crowd got ugly.

We're told Charlie called on Simon Rex for backup ... sending him on stage to rap -- and when that backfired they played the new track, "Winning" ... which Snoop Dogg recorded for Charlie. 

We're told that got the crowd fired up ... but when neither Snoop nor Charlie came out on stage they started booing again.

At that point most of the crowd started walking out -- and the house lights were turned on.

We're told Charlie did come back on stage briefly and invited the people who stayed to move up closer to the stage ... but then he started complaining about his audio and walked off the stage.

Is anyone surprised Charlie's show was not well received in Detroit?

The studios should all get together and sue him for the multiple copyright violations in his multimedia presentation . . . especially Warner Bros.

Did anyone really expect that this would end well? The people who purchased tickets to see this side-show freak (LOSING!) knew what was going down. My Motor City friends are in a financial slump right now, but they are not stupid. Kick Sheen's sorry, skinny ass back to the abyss he created for himself.

God Bless Detroit. Your star will rise again.

Someone tweeted he referenced "pagers" in his "act".
Who uses pagers anymore?

We forget...he is stuck in the era inwhich his brain was fried.

@ Gimme A Break - I wondered why they didn't do that for his U Stream show.

This just shows that without a producer, director and writers, CS is just another dumb, albeit crack addled, actor.
