Chuck Lorre -- Blasting Charlie With Monkey Jokes?

4/29/2011 12:05 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Chuck Lorre is taking a vicious shot at an actor -- accusing him of being a drug addict who is "impossible to work with" ... but the shocker is he's NOT talking about Charlie Sheen. Maybe.

At the end of last night's "The Big Bang Theory" ... Lorre's vanity card seems to be joking about a monkey that was on the episode -- saying its "behavior became increasingly erratic, to the point of refusing to come out of his trailer to rehearse."

The card continues, "The monkey is a heroin addict. Yes, hard as it may be to believe, the monkey had a monkey on his back." It goes on to say the monkey is in detox and a 12 step program.

But after Lorre's announcement he's retooling "Two and a Half Men" without Charlie -- and Charlie's nuclear response, we gotta ask ...

I think TMZ is trying to start trouble.
They had a monkey on the show, and Chuck used the vanity card to explain the monkey was never exposed to smoke.

Isn't this what got Lorre into trouble the first time? He uses these 'vanity cards' (fitting in his case) to devalue the Warlock and it only makes him look passive/aggresive. They're not cute and they're not funny. Using monkeys for comedy is passe not to mention cruel. The poor monkey should have gone for Lorre's face.

Oh Lorre has the right to say what he did, but he shouldn't be surprised if he gets the same and MORE in return.

I think it's time for Lorre to grow up now. This whole thing has gotten really old and boring.

Lorre has a sense of humor.That's why he is a success.He wrote things like this long before the problems with Sheen.My fear is paranoid people are going to stop him from having vainity cards and they are very funny.Lay off him!He's taking the high road.

If sense were common everyone would have it.    

Of course it was aimed at charlie, AS WELL IT SHOULD HAVE BEEN. He's been nothing but a drain on the show, which despite the high ratings continued to lose money because of chuck & his jeuvenile antics. He is there to work, not cost the studio money. I just hope Lorre doesn't descend into a mudslinging match with sheen. He's above that. Replace charlie, or cancel the show, & move on.
